Lots of ON protein fans on here - good news because ON prices have been through the roof this year. The new Costco coupon book for January shows Costco will begin carrying ON Performance Whey Isolate, 4.5 lbs in vanilla. Item # will be 705085. From 1/2/13 to 1/27/13 there will be a $12 off coupon, limit 2. Have not been able to price yet, but usually Costco's prices are fair and the $12 off per tub should make this pretty slick for ON Cool

This is supposed to be a Costco exclusive per their mag. 30g protein per serving / 55 servings per tub.

Side by side comparison of ON's Performance Whey (left), vs the new Performance Whey 100% Isolate (right): http://i.imgur.com/DJuxY.jpg

Tone it down, people

i got mine from costco for $35

$45 IS NOT A SLICK DEAL. Costco sell this for $57. So after coupon ends up at $10 per pound. Not slick.On Amazon.com it is $52.99 for 5 pounds or $10.60 per pound.

^thats not even the same protein powder. This powder is a blend between whey concentrate and whey isolate (the high quality stuff). The Costco one is pure whey isolate.

edit 1/02/13: The ingredients at Costco is all isolate (concentrate is not listed in the ingredients).

edit 1/8: If y'all don't know, whey isolate is extremely high quality whey protein which is absorbed more quickly. More info here: http://www.2buildmusclefast.com/2...otein.html
Normally, this costs a lot more.

Thanks, OP! Smilie

I bought 2 but probably won't buy more. I usually either buy Gold Standard or Hydrowhey Platinum in french vanilla. This Performance Whey Isolate has a pretty good nutritional profile but don't like the taste or how it mixes.

IMHO, the Performance Whey is almost exactly the same a GNC Wheybolic Extreme, both being pretty powdery when dry and having a gritty mix when mixed in water. The Gold Standard and especially the Hydrowhey are more instantized and have a thicker consistency. The taste is personal preference and I like the french vanilla much better than regular vanilla.

At roughly the same cost as Gold Standard for me when on sale or with discounts, I'll go with the Gold Standard since I'll sacrifice on the nutritional profile for my preferred mixability and taste

Personally, I'd avoid this stuff. Flavor is meh, quality is decent, although nothing special, and if you're lactose intolerant, fuggedaboudit. You should always be just a little suspicious if when you see stuff being sold by the truckload, as is the case with these containers. A lot for a little, right? I've tried a TON of protein supplements over the years, and easily the best I've ever found is the stuff from Biochem, but it ain't cheap. I use the natural flavor, but the vanilla tastes even better. It's 100% isolate, is lactose free, wheat and gluten free, contains no sugars, mixes extremely well in smoothies or just water or milk. Just plain excellent. I always watch out for sales because it's expensive. Trust me, it's the best, but don't take my word for it.

Not a good deal. 55 servings @ $47. I have a tub of 77 services Strawberry Banana @ $53.

I bought the costco one anyway just to try it - it is disgusting in milk. The ON Gold Standard stuff is delicious in milk. Not sure where they failed here, but maybe I just don't like Vanilla vs Strawberry Banana.

I'll keep this Costco ON stuff @ work so I can load up @ work, but won't be buying it again.
