This is great in terms of quality and in general I have no complaints - except - it is just too sweet! The vanilla flavor is great, and the consistency and product itself is also great, and while it doesn't have the calories from sugar, and uses a natural alternative (stevia) it is just sickeningly sweet.
I originally thought this was a problem with the salted caramel quest protein powder, but the vanilla is just as sweet tasting. I've tried adding it to coffee instead of water (it mixes just fine no problems there) but it didn't help. I think the only alternative is to cut it with an unsweetened/unflavored protein drink in a 1 to 1 or maybe even 2 unsweetend to 1 vanilla proportion. I love the quality and proportions of the shake and it works as a great addition to a meal that is lacking in protein to keep it balanced.
It is possible that since I have reduced the amount of sugar/sweet things I eat in general, I am hyper-sensitive even though I have not eliminated sugar completely. I find that many of the flavored shakes have a tendency to taste artificial and overly sweet, however this was sweeter tasting to me than regular full fat, real sugar ice cream.
