  • 2 Gingerbread

I honestly bought gingerbread because it had received a 10/10 but truthfully do not pick the flavor you want based on reviews because everyone has different taste buds and flavor preferences, get what you think is appetizing to you and I’m sure you will like it! I picked ginger bread based on peoples ratings and man was I disappointed this smells and tastes like bland cinnamon...really disappointed I knew I should have gotten delicious strawberry instead. Get what you like!!!! and don’t be like me!!!! Also I have tried vanilla and it is WAY better than this!!

Good product. Great price per serving. Mixes relatively well with a shaker bottle but tends to leave powder in the foam created from shaking in my experience. Tastes a little bland with just water but is vastly improved when mixed with coconut water or almond milk.

Among one of the best flavors for protein in the market. With how saturated the supplement market is nowadays, I have great confidence in Optimum Nutrition's quality and quantity of their protein. For the price and servings, this product is just great for getting in extra protein. Highly recommend!

Great taste, protein very thin even with milk. Easy to blend in with other condiments. Easy gain. Gained about 8 lbs in 2 weeks drinking this twice a day. (one scoop each serving) feel less sore after my workouts, gives me more of an appetite. Definitely found my protein. Until I feel I find s cleaner protein as far as taste and gains

This has become my go-to whey protein. I like the milk chocolate flavor though it's not overly chocolatey. It is a good value, dissolved well, and has a good protein amount per serving.

I think the product works well. Dissolves very easily compares to other protein powders I’ve used. Only negative, I think the banana flavor is gross.

Gold Standard is one of the better whey proteins for its price. The quality of protein per scoop is better than most other “middle of the pack brands” with a ton of flavour choices. I wish some of the less common flavours were available in the 10lb size. Highly recommend.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
