Got some this weekend... strawberry flavour.
I usually go with myprotein.com, which is cheap-ish itself, and tasted top quality.
Olympus is not that nice (quite chalky) but not disgusting, and for the price (basically getting double for the same price I pay at my protein, it's defo worth it. I'll be using it from now on as it's bare-able and end of the day I buy it for the easy protein content, not for a nice tasting milkshake...
but yeah, defo not that nice... mabey they'll improve and tweak things over time. I remember myprotein wasn't all that nice when they first started out.

I Just bought a tub of this and wanted to add a positive review. I really don't understand why people are complaining about this protein. Even if there is a high soy content, it is bro-science at best to try and argue that this is in any way inferior to whey in terms of muscle building potential.
The taste is really good. I was pleasantly surprised at the flavour of it as i had seen some people complaining about this also. I got cookies and cream and it tastes absolutely fine. It is better than the taste of the bulk powders protein that I previously had purchased. There is a little grainy texture/flavour to it and it is much sweeter than I thought it was going to be. I put one scoop in 750ml of water to sip on through the afternoon and was pleasantly surprised at how strong the flavour is. It isn’t as thin as the bulk powders protein either. Seems thicker and much better quality to me.
Considering that this protein is such good value, I would give it a 10/10 review and will be using it as my permanent supplier of protein from now on.*****North East UK Crew*****

Is there anyway it can be tested for protein%? I'm not concerned that the soy content is high, like clangsta mentioned the muscle building potential will be same as whey, my concern is that protein is a competitive market the price they are selling it at is alot lower than anyone else by a fair margin which makes me think the protein % might be lower than on the nutritional label which means they can sell it at the price they are and still make a profit. Where it says you get 23g protein per scoop you might only get 14g per scoop, how is anyone really going to know any difference unless it can be tested.
NOTE: I'm not saying this is what they are doing, it may be genuine, but I would like to know if there is a way this can be tested for protein percentage, when something seems too good to be true it usually is.
