I want to thank the guys over at Giant Sports for sending out a 2lb tub of their chocolate flavored protein to review and keep a couple of updates.
I'm no Betty Crocker like some of you guys on here so i'll mainly us the protein in shake form, oats and some pancakes or what not.
Delicious protein can be found on the BB.com store here http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/gi...s-protein.html
Price wise for a 5lb tub it's right up there with the rest of the proteins. At .84 cents a serving (before the 10% discount code) for the 5lb and $1.03 per serving for the 2lber, you're better off going with the 5lb for value.
The protein mix in Delicious Protein isn't something that's unfamiliar and consist of "Giant Delicious Protein Blend (Whey Protein Concentrate, Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate, Micellar Casein, Calcium Caseinate, Whey Protein Hydrolysate". It's a nice blend for a protein mix. The great thing about Giant Sports is they run some pretty extensive test to make sure they meet label claims and put out a high quality protein. With 81.8% Protein Per Serving i'm sure we can all appreciate a company that provides this time and effort to put out solid high quality supplements. Matter of fact the Protein I got came with lab results to show it's validity which was very nice to see.
Macro wise this is pretty friendly. 1.80(2g) fat, 4g carbs & 27g of protein per scoop(36g). This should satisfy all those that are macro sensitive with their proteins(pussies ).
Let's get to my initial thoughts. I used my first serving in just a shake consisting of water and two scoops. I used about 16 oz of water.
The 2nd time was just one scoop in about 8-9 oz of water with some oats for my breakfast.
I'll post some pics and my thoughts below.

So these are my thoughts on the two times i've tried Delicious Protein. I was excited to try this stuff out based on all the reviews and hype on the boards it's been receiving.
I can tell you after two shakes I wasn't really blown away by the chocolate taste. That's not to say this was bad by any means but I was expecting a little more. The taste was almost to rich for my liking. I like chocolate but it taste like I bit into a chocolate cake with just to much chocolate if that makes sense. Texture wise it was in the middle of thick yet thin (no homo phaggots lol). It was texture similar to a protein blend that i'm sure all of us have had.
Mix wise it was good. I had no issues with any clumping or unmixed powder.
2 things I want to bring up.
1)The amount of protein vs the tub kind of pissed me off. I opened my protein up to find only half the tub filled and a big waste of space. I get why the tub is half empty but still it would be nice to see more powder that fills the tub. It sucks getting chocolate on a fresh new jacket or sweater sleeve lol.
2) If you can see in the powder picture there are these small little "salt" like rocks. You have to look closely but you'll see them. I don't know if this is intended but it from what I can tell it didn't effect the protein in any sense to taste, mixability or texture.
Tomorrow i'll be using a scoop mixed in oats and maybe a MRP. Till then take care guys and stay Strong(er).
