Rated 4 out of 5 by Armon3 Decent but I prefer vanilla
Tastes kind of like chocolate milk, but I prefer not to have the extra ingredients and lower number of servings per container.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lindy62 Could'nt tolerate the xylitol...
I am looking for a better whey protein powder than my current, and this is a great protein powder except that I cannot tolerate the xylitol and got severe digestive distress whenever I drank this. My last whey powder started adding erythritol and the same thing happened. I'm now avoiding all sugar alcohols! Luckily my hubby has no issues with it and likes it so no money wasted! Just wish more companies made either NON-sweetened powders or used safer sweeteners like stevia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by behonest I was not expecting this to be so sweet. Xylitol is the sweetener and it tastes awful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luckyman Great tasting protein
Love the taste - smooth and creamy, no chemical taste. I've tried dozens of other proteins and this is my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMGS My Favorite Protein Powder
I have tried so any different protein powders, but they always had something in the ingredients that I didn't want. I love that this one is high quality, grass-fed, certified rBGH-free with no added "junk". I also had a hard time finding a protein powder that wasn't loaded with sugar or didn't have stevia sweetener added, due to a sensitivity. This one is perfect with Xylitol and PureLo® Lo Han. Thank you Swanson Vitamins!

I love this protein drink mixed with chocolate almond milk, followed by a good, long workout. In vanilla almond milk you still have the chocolate flavor, but it's a lot richer in the chocolate almond milk. It makes a great pre-workout breakfast, or a snack midday.

I love this protein powder. I was looking for something that was certified rBGH-Free and from grass feed cows. This was just what I was looking for. High quality and great taste!!

We totally enjoy this product. This is my husband's favorite flavor and the strawberry is mine. The comparables to this product are so much more costly, this protein powder is a breath of fresh air to my grocery bill.

i have used this product for over two years every morning as the main protein ingredient in a smoothie loaded with kale,frozen berries,almonds,carrot, raw egg, whole milk, ground flax,wheat germ,turmeric, cinnamon and psyllium husk. It always goes down great and digests very well. it sticks to your ribs for a few hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lelebel Not as good as the vanilla
I have loved Swanson Ultra Vanilla Whey Protein for a long, long time, so I decided to order Chocolate as a special treat. Although the things I love about Vanilla are still there (great ingredients, texture, and ease of use), I found the Xylitol flavor in this to be very, very strong; stronger than even the chocolate flavor. What resulted was a "false" taste in my mouth that I could just not get past. I am very disappointed, and will probably not order Chocolate again.

Chocolate is always a good thing!! It is great not to have to worry about the quality/safety. Wish it came in a bigger, lower price per serving container.

I really like the Swansons Certified Grass-fed Hormone -Free Chocolate Whey Protien. I use it before and after my workouts with great results and i love the taste

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bweaver15 Best protien ever
Not only does it taste good, the results are amazing. I have gained quite a bit of muscle since I started taking this product 2 years ago. Grass fed whey is the only way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by polky Very happy
I bought chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I have tried all 3. Love the taste! I was looking for a cheaper alternative to Dr. Mercola's protein powder and definitely found it here. I'm very happy and will be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KnightRider Impressive Whey
I have only been using this whey for a short period, but so far I like it and I highly recommend it. My thoughts are below.
I bought this due to the natural and healthy aspects of the whey. I love that it is a cold-processed concentrate and comes from grass-fed cows. I also like that it uses sunflower lecithin rather than soy. I wish that it were organic, but at least it doesn't have any artificial sweeteners added. (although i do wonder what the "natural flavors" come from.)
While there are other brands of whey that are cheaper, this is the best price I could find for grass-fed concentrate that doesn't contain fake sweeteners. Very similar to Dr. Mercola's, but at a cheaper price. 15 servings @ 17 grams of protein is decent, but could be better. Would love to see more servings and 20-24 grams of protein, but I guess we can't always have our cake errr protein and eat it too...
I always drink my whey shakes with milk or added to other recipies like waffles or oatmeal. It mixed very well with milk using my magic bullet. It had a very light chocolate taste similar to a homemade chocolate shake that needed 2 more squirts of hershey's syrup. With that said I really liked the taste and while creamier think it compares favorably to some of the best I've had such as Muscle Milk and Optimum Nutrition. The last drink was very sweet due to some of it settling at the bottom, but it was a good sweet to me.
I had a little bloating after taking the whey, but not as much as with other whey. I'm using it to build muscle and I'm going to assume it will be just as effective if not more than others I have used. If it proves not to work well, I'll update the review.
Overall I really like the whey and think that it is the best that can be found at such a reasonable price. I hope that one day this becomes certified organic, but as it is I am definitely going to become a long-time buyer.

I love this product. It's essentially the same as the one Dr. Mercola sells for twice the price. LOVE it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by housemaid Didn't Like It
I bought it because it is from hormone-free grass-fed cows and doesn't have any bad artificial sweeteners. But it is too sweet and the chocolate flavor is not strong enough for me. I found it rather unpleasant in milk, but am able to eat it mixed in 2% Greek yogurt. Tastes sort of like chocolate pudding that way. It is not something I would order again due to flavor, but that's a highly individual thing. It mixes pretty well.

Only issue is lack of cocoa flavor and more pricey than previous products used, but you gotta pay more for quality

I was looking for a cheaper alternative to Dr. Mercola's or Hofmekler's Whey and I found it here.
Tastes great, mixes well, works great.
Try it, you will like it.
