This is awful. Will not mix in a shaker cup, maybe in a blender I dunno. When I drink it, I'm drinking nothing but clumps. I have bought Casein from Optimum Nutrition before but its been awhile and this is nothing like it. Like other reviewers they have changed the product and definitely not for the better. Sorry Optimum Nutrition I love your whey but I can't even choke your Casein down.
I've been using this product for almost 5 years and it was the best casein I've ever tasted. Up untill the latest redesign of the product. The label is just a bit different so it's not that obvious, but as soon as you open the box you can notice a completely different product inside. The powder is no longer a bit 'grainy', but smooth like wheat powder. The smell is almost the same. The old product you could mix it just with a spoon easily. In milk or water. Now with the new product it's almost impossible. Powder sticks to everything. I'll never buy this product again. Note: I'm from Europe and I know it's produced in the UK or Ireland for our market, so maybe in the US you're lucky and they didn't ruin the product
Hands down the worst casein I have ever tasted. It taste like as if you are drinking chemicals. Almost as if you didn't wash all the soap out. Its honestly horrible.
I train very early in the morning, taking this stuff after I work out gets me to lunch without starving. Otherwise, I am starving by about 0900. I've done carbs and whey but they don't stick with me like this casein does.
Chocolate Supreme is great - have been using this forever and love it!!!! I accidentally ordered Chocolate Peanut Butter and I don't like it at all and can barely get through the rest of it.
Great taste and thick like a milkshake. Will continue ordering this product
Taste great, mixes well.
You can never know how bad the artificial sweeteners till you try this product, the taste is amazing like never before ... a real chocolate drink without any after taste. It is the best you may ever try. I use it before bed and so happy with it.
I tried this flavor first; better than the second order French Vanilla but, I have the Chocolate Supreme on deck. I like the digestion but, have not found the right flavor yet. There is always cottage cheese.
Great in the evening, and to make a protein fluff
Very good protein, mixes well. I use this as an evening snack.
Of all the supplements on the market, this is absolutely the best and the one that really works! And if for some reason you miss a workout or need to lay off for a while, continue taking this because it will maintain the gains you've made. I never mix anything with this other than occasionally adding a dash of pumpkin pie spice to make it taste exactly like egg nog. I drink this while watching a bit of TV before bed and when I'm finished I always feel a bit pumped. Jump into bed and off I GROW!
Mixes very thick but that is to be expected for casein. The vanilla is good for me because I can mix it with various fruits or chocolate powder. The vanilla casein does have a distinct smell. Both me and my daughter separately came to the conclusion the powder smells similar to coconut flour. I'm not sure if this is specific to the vanilla or if that is a smell the other flavors also give off. Either way, it helps my muscles recover and rebuild when I know I won't have protein for long stretches of time.
To anyone who is doing research, Casein is a marketing ploy. It is a joke of a product. Protein synthesis does not activate until a minimum of 12 grams of protein are in your body. Casein releases less than 6 grams per hour. Your body does not even enter protein synthesis using this product. It is quite literrally empty calories that will just turn to fat. This product is designed only for marketing. Do not become a sucker to the snake oil that is Casein.
Best casein in my opinion
