I have tried various brands of whey protein, some because i have wanted to try the different more well known brands and some because they have been much cheaper than others. At the end of the day, the best tasting whey protein i have tried has been the Optimum Nutrition 100% Pure Whey Protein.
To me the flavor itself does not matter, however, Optimum Nutrition has some stunning variety in terms of flavor. I have tried the Cookies and Cream, Double Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and they all taste absolutely amazing. Cookies and creams feels like you’re drinking a cookie and you will be waiting for the end of the workout to have some.
People have complained about the after taste of whey protein, and in my experience, this has the least strongest of them all. I do not mind the taste at all, but if it does bother you, give this one a try.
The amount of protein in Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein products is 24g of protein per serving. This is on average 1g of protein extra compared to most other brands on the market. So if you purchase a 2lb container which has 30 servings, that’s a whopping 30g of extra protein free. In a market where all the brands give you almost an identical product, the taste, flavors and extra 1g of protein you get from Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein makes it a winner. In my book the best tasting whey protein is easily Optmum Nutrition 100% Pure Whey Protein.
