About four years ago, a friend of mine shared a scoop of protein with me. Its flavor was unlike any other protein powders I had tried, and I never forgot it. Unfortunately, I stopped working out shortly after - because I'm fat and lazy af - but after having lost over 120 pounds in the past year, my doctor told me my body was starting to consume muscle for energy, so I needed more protein in my diet, which was tricky for me to get in as I eat between 1500-1800 calories a day, and meat is expensive. I'm also partially lactose intolerant, in that I can't drink milk without causing an ecological disaster, so that's where whey isolate comes in.

I thought back to that aforementioned protein scoop; the boring, grey container it came in. It's ability to mix incredibly well with water, unlike the other protein powders that always left chunks in my bottle. And, again, it's rich, creamy, unique taste that betrayed my expectations of a protein product. Luckily, I've found that protein brand and powder, and the flavor was Cookies and Cream. So far, I've tried vanilla, strawberry, banana and cookies and cream. Cookies and cream wins hands down, followed by banana, vanilla, then strawberry (my least favorite, and the most chemical/synthetic-tasting one in my opinion).

So there you have it. Treat yourselves and get cookies and cream. You can thank me later.

I've been using this product for almost a year now as part of my complete lifestyle change. I have the 7.5lb container on pantry auto order every two months, and this synchs well with the usage. My typical breakfast includes two scoops of isopure mixed in water and a bowl of fiber one original cereal in no sugar added almond/coconut milk. 10 months and -100lbs later, I couldn't be happier with the results.

I bought unflavored. I doesn't have any other fancy ingredients. I add instant coffee to it and with ice and water shake it in my blender bottle my iced cappuccino is ready.

I've been using the dutch chocolate protein powder for 5 years now. I take it after my morning workout. It tastes good enough to use with just plain water, but it's also great with milk or a milk substitute. The nutrition facts say a serving is two scoops (50g protein), but I use just one scoop (25g of protein) and the canister lasts twice as long. I got married a few months ago and my husband uses a different brand of protein, but I won't switch to his because I like the way mine tastes so much!

Love it. One of the best Protein Powders I ever tried and trust be I have tried everything from ON, Dymatize, MP...you name it.
After trying all that and dealing with bloating issues and what not, I decided to start my hunt for unflavored whey proteins. And guess what, there aren't really a lot of options when it comes to unflavored portions (even IsoPure also offer limited sizes when it comes to unflavored protein). Anyway, my hunt lead me to GNC. GNC's unflavored protein is good as well but I dont like GNC because going to a GNC shop is like going for car shopping. The sales guy/gal will sell the whole shop to you if s/he can even though you know exactly what you need and perhaps can coach him/her on the products they stacked in the shop. Anyway, the problem with GNC's unflavored is that its super thick in texture and got 4g carbs per serving. Which means if you take it 4 times in a day and 2 scoops, its 32g of carbs right there. Good if you are not on a carb diet. Also to mention the GNC unflavored is not completely unflavored.

Finally I found Isopure. Its 100% unflavored. Mixes better than any whey protein that I had. I usually mix it with berries and make a shake of it + 0 Carb. And trust me you can mix it with anything. I made pancakes of it, smoothies..mix it with indian Roti's and it add absolutely no taste at all.

I am on my fourth round of order now and finally placed a monthly recurring subscription on amazon prime for this as I don't see this being pulled out of my stack anytime soon.

Isopure is my go to protein! I am extremely picky with protein and hate the taste of most of them. I also have a lactose sensitivity. The Dutch Chocolate protein tastes similar to Ovaltine when used with almond milk. When used with water it has a stronger ‘protein’ taste to it but is still pretty bareable. It does not bother my stomach at all and is a great way for me to hit my protein intake for the day. I use it before or after intense lifting sessions. It mixes well in blender bottles, mixes ok with just a spoon but can be chunky if you don’t mix well. I have also made protein pancakes and muffins with it and it works great! It is a little pricey but it is high quality and in my opinion worth the money.

I've used a lot of different and expensive brands of protein powder and this one is great! The creamy vanilla is great. I'm on the keto diet now and this is the ONLY powder I found 0 carbs and tastes great, especially with some almond milk and strawberries for a smoothie. I just ordered the banana and Dutch chocolate flavors to try!

This is my go to brand for protein powder, and my go to flavor was Dutch Chocolate. After a few canisters I was ready for something new, but afraid I would not like the flavor and would be stuck with it. I took a shot and tried the Columbina Coffee and it's pretty freaking delicious. It has a mild iced coffee with creamer flavor, I only mixed it with water. And I'm hoping the caffein helps me get away from purchasing coffee everyday

absolutely love this protein. I know it has no flavor so your probably like huh, but lemme tell you why i love this protein. See im lactose intolerant for 1 and i can't consume 99% of most proteins without feeling some type of side effect, (gas, bloating, upchuck, unease) since i bought the isopure protein beverages i wanted to try this protein as the beverages didn't make me sick either. Also i make a mean vegetable shake with fruit spinach and cucumbers so the problem is drinking 2 protein shakes and having to down this huge vegetable shake as well, i decided to buy this protein and add it into my vegetable shake and boom i got a protein vegetable fruit shake which is basically like a meal and its delicious i can't even tell the protein is in there. Also it has no carbs so im able to do double scoops on my carb down days and not feel the effects of insulin as i would with my normal protein with carbs. plus the taste is whatever you mix it with so you can stand the flavor.

Lifesaver for me. I am on a pre op liquid diet. My surgeon has me drinking celebrate protein shakes which are truly gag worthy, and I am not a picky eater. I am making it work but mixing half of what he wants me to have with half of my Isopure bananas and cream, and it makes it bearable.

I make a delicious chocolate peanut butter banana cream protein smoothie with mootopia chocolate milk from HEB (it's like Fairlife (half the sugar, twice the protein), pb2, and this powder. It is so delicious, and using one scoop it is 295 calories and 42g of protein. It keeps me going all morning. It doesn't even feel like a diet protein smoothie.
