Rated 2 out of 5 by fresher Awful taste
I can't stand how bad this tastes on its own. Maybe if you mix it with a lot of over flavors it would be better.

I use this in my morning smoothie. I don't even notice that it's there - it has a very smooth consistency and the flavor is not noticeable.

This taste like peas if you like them. I mix with other proteins in a blender to get less fat content.

I love this protein powder for almost daily use - I easily feel satisfied from it and love the price/value. It has a distinct taste which limits its versatility, but it fits well in my favorite smoothie recipes, so I use it frequently and always have it on hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Tastes like hay.
Trying to go full vegan so I decided to try this pea protein to replace whey.
Definately does not taste as good as a flavored whey powder. Mixing it using soy milk or coconut milk makes it drinkable but I still wouldn't say that it tastes good.
I haven't experimented with different ingredients to try and mask the grassy/hay taste. Suggest you use a blender to mix the powder because it takes a lot of stirring for the powder to mix well and even then it is still kind of grainy.
I think the price of pea protein is less than whey powder. You could try to buy a better tasting flavored blend of rice/hemp/pea protein but I think you would be paying a lot more.
So if your committed to becoming vegan and not picky about taste this protein might work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bythewayside Great Product, but Taste Might Bother Some
This has been a wonderful way to add a vegetarian source of protein to my day. It is easy on the stomach and blends without much difficulty. It keeps me energized on a busy morning. I definitely recommend this product, but the taste is not wonderful. It has a somewhat raw pea flavor that is not easy to hide in other foods. I finally realized the best way to use this was just mix it in water, swallow and get on with the rest of the tasty portion of my breakfast!

If you really loves peas, and don't mind everything you put in a smoothy tasting like peas, then you would like this. I didn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Microsteve Excellent source of healthy protein!
I use this product with the many smoothies I make. I am on the microbiome diet and add a scoop to smoothies to curb hunger and for healthy vegan source of protein from peas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustTerry Healthy source of protein
I mix this with my protein powder and milk. The milk and protein powder disguise the taste and I feel like it gives me the boost I am looking for. I do not eat a lot of meat, so supplement with this on the days that I both swim and work out, because I do not really have time to fix a regular meal on those days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Snewl Good price-just wish it tasted good
Value wise, this is a pretty decent product. But that doesn't really help when it tastes awful. Gritty, clumpy, really messes up fruit smoothies. Have bought it a couple of times because, as a vegetarian I wanted to up my protein intake. But I have tasted other proteins (including pea protein) that are superior to this one.

Is not soluble. Most of it ends up unmixed in the bottom of your shaker. What does mix is gritty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlcsky1 Excellent Value
I have used pea protein for 3 years now and Swanson's brand has a milder taste and mixes easier with almond milk than the other brand I use.
At the current discounted price you cannot beat the value!
True,there are better tasting plant based proteins out there but they can be 2 to 3 times the price. I am more than willing to mix a little cinnamon and sweetener in my protein drink to make up for the taste and texture. If you must have a perfectly smooth drink then use a blender.
I have also mixed this product in soups with good results.
I definitely recommend this product!

This IS the only product I have purchased from Swanson's which is truly terrible! very disappointed!
No wonder it is now being sold at an amazing discount.

I love this product but I noticed that sometimes the color is off, from tub to tub. I also noticed that the taste is different. and does change the flavor of the many different smoothies I make.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WStickel Good product and great price
I had been consuming another pea protein powder and decided to try Swanson's. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the powder and recommend it. Each serving requires the same amount of powder as the others, has virtually the same nutritional value as the others, and mixes easier than the others (I mix with almond milk). It is a bit 'gritty, but maybe would be not so if allowed to sit a few minutes. It also has a bit of a bitter aftertaste, but a bit of honey or other flavor easily masks it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by misse49 Worst I have ever tasted
My husband and I tried this protein in smoothies with different fruits, strawberries, blue berries, pineapple, apples, raspberries, and a combination of the fruits that we have tried before and loved. This pea protein overpowered the flavor of all fruit to the point that you could not taste any fruit in it. I finally threw the protein away tonight and recycled the container. The container was the only value in the product!!

Has a ROTTEN Taste to it like it's been stuck in a Hot Garage since 1924. Tried to mix it in water, yet it stayed super chalky and when I took a sip, I almost gagged. CHEAP and BAD Quality Product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ksmall1998 Versatile
I have made the change from whey to pew protein becuase of it's versatility. The only drawback is pea protein does not dissolve entirely so if you are making a drink it will have a slight gritty feel, but in a smoothie it is not too noticeable. But it can be added to hummus, yogurt, peanut butter and it makes for a very thick smoothie.

I just finished my tub of this protein and have to say I do like the results.The taste Isnt that good or bad but If youre looking for perfect taste than try those over priced and over advertised proteins.Its cost efficent,alot of servings for the price and Its non GMO which Is always a plus.This protein may just be my main protein from now on.Thanks Swanson!
