Rated 3 out of 5 by SwansonReviewer999 Does not taste good.
I'm giving this a three star rating exclusively for the taste. It's not very good.
It's not undrinkable, either, but I mix it with unflavored protein powder or the Swanson Ultra vanilla to get it down.
There's something about their combination of natural sweeteners that's almost gross.
Diluted with other things makes it drinkable, and I'll finish up the canister but won't be reordering.
Also, and this is my fault for not paying attention, it has some vitamins in it. Totally unnecessary for me as I take a good multivitamin. I do wish it was mentioned on the label though.

Why did you change the formula? Loved the taste of the old formula, but can't get the new formula down. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunshineNashville Outstanding quality
We mix the chocolate protein with half coconut milk and half chocolate almond milk and add a cup of kale, or spinach or whatever greens we have growing in the garden and one banana. It is delicious, healthy and very filling and you do not get hungry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justsayin Works for me...
You can't beat the price for grass fed whey protein. I also use the undenatured whey protein. Not over sweet, or over flavored. You want more flavor? Put more in. Mixes great with almond milk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josephina chocolate lovers, behold!
I had been using Swanson's vanilla whey protein for quite some time, falsely believing chocolate would overpower more subtle flavors. Got bold, however, and gave it a try. Love it. In a smoothy, it enhances fruits, particulary berries, in a way vanilla just can't.

This was recommended to me for smoothies and it is really a top notch chocolate protein powder. To increase the antioxidants I also add a scoop of RAW cacao powder to my smoothies along with chia seeds, fruit and/or greens. If you love chocolate you will love this product. Try it and see what it does for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blackliquid28 So far Its good
I haven't been taking this protein for too long, but do far it's alright. I take it like a breakfast on the morning, since I'm always on the run. In the evening I go jogging and cycling and I feel that it helps a bit w/muscle soreness. So going to stick to it till I'm done and then really see if it's making a difference in my body. I taste is not too bad, it's tolerable, but also I just mix it w/water and drink it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frugalmama3 Pretty Filling & Tasty
I like this chocolate flavor a lot better than the vanilla, though adding either powder to almond milk with a squeeze of liquid Stevia is the best way I've found to enjoy drinking this protein powder. I wish it held me a little longer, but it's satisfying enough that I will probably purchase it again. I like the quality of ingredients as compared with a lot of the more well-known brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mtmaureen use for morning protein smoothie
Mix 1 c. Almond Coconut Milk, handful of spinach, 4 tbsp. yogurt, strawberries or mango to taste. I use a Vitamix and the concoction is great. Use the recommended measure of protein powder. Chocolate was a substitute since vanilla not available and surprisingly good.

Out of all the many protein powders our family has tasted this is in the top 2!!!! The chocolate taste is good. reminds us of a milkshake when made with ice and raw whole milk.
This and Mercola's Pure Power Protein Chocolate flavor are our favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by imdeen Mmmm chocolate milk!
I don't get all fancy with my protein powder. I just mix it with about 14 to 16 oz of 2% organic milk in a shaker bottle for a quick and simple breakfast on my way out the door in the mornings. This mixes pretty well and has great flavor. It's like treating myself to chocolate milk, but without the HFCS and chemicals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jujubean Best Way to Whey
It took me a while to find a quality whey protein to make my post-workout shakes or bump up the protein intake after a detox. This is the one I chose based on the fact that it is from grass-fed rBGH free cows. It mixes up smooth and thickens nicely in either low-fat milk or almond milk. The chocolate taste is really good. Doesn't taste chemical or medicinal like pre-engineered protein shakes. Just tastes like a dessert! I like to add chocolate Amazing Grass, hemp seed, and coconut oil to it for extra nutrition. Yum!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jellystone I've tasted better
If you are sensitive to weird tasting products, this is not for you. I can drink it, but I'd rather not! The sweetening ingredients taste very odd and there's no covering them up. This product would be far better with no added flavorings. (Most of us add our own stuff anyway, don't we?) The vanilla variety is less offensive, but I sent both products back to Swanson. I'm sticking with BIOCHEM Whey Protein in Vanilla and Natural (unflavored). The Biochem product is not unpleasant at all. The vanilla is not "fakey" and does not complete with anything I have added. Nice texture, and it comes in a large can. Don't buy the organic variety, however. The organic whey is processed differently and it comes out smelling and tasting weird no matter what you put in it. Buy the regular Biochem Whey Protein and you will happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryl a rare find
Hard enough to find grass-fed beef at a reasonable price; however, this product gives you the best quality protein which can be added to a morning or afternoon shake.
A lot of protein bang for the buck.

I am not eating sugar so I was glad to find a protein powder sweetened with steiva. But it is so sweet, that it tastes awful. That awful strong stevia taste. I"m going to try cutting it down with some unsweetened powder. But I think I'm better off buying the unsweetened one and add my own steiva.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SwansonGuy2013 Best Protein Powder I've had so far
Fantastic taste - Love the PureLo Lo Han sweetener, looked it up and found out it is derived from Monk Fruit, ALL NATURAL. Good balance of vitamins and a decent amount of protein per serving. Grass-fed, rBGH-Free is an added plus and you can definitely tell from the taste. Mixes great in any kind of milk (I use unsweetened Almond milk). If I had anything negative to say, it would be the price vs. quantity. $16 for under a pound can get a bit steep depending on how often you take it, but honestly, I don't think this will stop me from purchasing in the future. Maybe consider selling in 2 pound quantities?
