I don't know if it was only the batch I got, but the vanilla flavor is more accurately described as banana cream pie. It is actually delicious, just not vanilla per se.

Tried this stuff once, very low quality protein. It is what it says it is but, doesn't dissolve / mix very well and flavor isn't that great. 6 pounds for $32 is below market rate for even budget protein powder but when you have deals like the current $55 for 2x 5.5 pound bags of myprotein powder which has excellent flavor and mixes way better / in general is just higher quality. value wise for 11 pounds of myprotein powder you'd be paying the same for 12 pounds of this, get the 11 pounds of the better stuff. Or even wait for a better sale on it than the current one, which is pretty good.

I'm not sure if you are a MyProtein shrill (there are many on SD) or what but there is no comparison between the two. I have two bags of MyProtein powder (Strawberry Creme and Chocolate Coconut) that sit on the shelf . The main reason being, they don't dissolve well at all in water. I was tired of drinking chunks. Both bags of MyProtein behave the same, though the Strawberry Creme is a tad better dissolving than chocolate coconut. This protein dissolves WAY better, has more protein per serving (27g Cytosport versus 20g MyProtein), has more BCAAs per serving (7g Cytosport versus 5g MyProtein) and is a much finer powder (more expensive) which is likely why it dissolves better. All around this is a better product than the MyProtein, the only thing MyProtein has going for it is they have a LOT of crazy flavors.

Yea, I had to choke down the chocolate last time I bought this. You also CANNOT mix it with milk, it's WAY too sweet and taste effing awful... I spent 60$ on the ON protein instead of this since it's not worth the savings to have to drink nasty tasting shakes every day.

Do you stir it with a spoon? Not in a shaker bottle? Also...

https://labdoor.com/rankings/protein/

Is a very reliable site that rates proteins (as well as other supplements, by quality. They don't even rank flavor or mixing, because those things are difficult to be objective about. They do an objective evaluation of the products consistency with it's claimed ingredients, and quality. Cytosport's protein powder isn't even ranked on the list. If you try to search for it you'll notice that the one product that is talked about on their is their muscle milk which is only mentioned because it was the grossest offender of having an inaccurate lable having 358% more sodium than it claimed.

I'm also not working for myprotein if that's what you mean. Like objectively... if you just look at the deals you can get from them it's not hard to understand why a lot of people would like myprotein on this site. Do you actually think they like... hire people to post positive comments about them?

I think you might legit just be encountering people that get their deals and are super happy with the product.

Have been using this for past 4 months and this thing is amazing. Has been giving me desired results. Excellent taste and good source of protein.
Contrary to what is being mentioned here, the scoop mixes well with water and there are no granules observed at the bottom of my bottle. I use the chocolate flavor and grabbed the one last week from store when the deal became active.
Not sure about myprotein thing, but the way deals for that are coming up, it's lost whatever credibility it had for me; not that I was gonna go for it.
+1 to the deal.

The reason for the difference in protein per serving is the difference in serving sizes. The Cytosport serving scoop is considerably larger than the MyProtein scoop. Use the same size scoop and the difference is negligible.

I honestly have no clue what you're talking about regarding myprotein not dissolving. I've gotten 3 different flavors in the past and have had zero issues using a blender bottle. Definitely one of the better quality proteins I've had over the years.

size of granules doesn't determine quality, neither does taste, nor the ability to dissolve in whatever medium you choose. how fine a powder is doesn't guarantee it will dissolve better either.

labdoor is based on their subjective method of algorithm that think that a spiked protein can get away with a higher grade/ranking. they were fine when they only tested products for their label accuracy, but when they started grading and ranking them, they went full potato. and it's not just spiked protein issue...take multivitamins, probiotics, fish oil, etc., their grading algorithm is severely flawed...

Yes, labdoor.com, the site that uses their own ranking algorithm, (see label accuracy, who would actually want a product with something inside it thats claimed), and is very very obviously paid off to rank a certain way.

When www.truenutrition.com doesnt even show up on their list, you know that its a shill site when ranking quality protein. Theres a reason that nearly every successful bodybuilder in the US uses truenutrition, while average joe's jump around on forums talking about "omg have you tried optimum nutrition" "muscle pharm ftw" etc etc.

I'd choose cytosport over myprotein any day of the week if I ever lost truenutrition. maybe not this specific protein as I'm pretty sensitive to whey concentrate, and when you're maintaining on 4200kcal its hard enough as it is to get food down, but over company quality absolutely.
