I've read alot of good things here about the taste of ON 100% Whey, so I went ahead and bought the variety pack. I felt like I had to choke most of them down. Even the generic protein I once bought at Vitamin World tasted better. Maybe I just have different tastebuds than everyone else. Or does anyone agree?

I do love their casein though.

Not the best tasting but I do enjoy a couple of their flavors. From what I've read your palate is opposite what a lot of people say (like the whey, hate the casein)

Their chocolate flavors in their whey line are the only ones i like. Every flavor i have tried in their casein line was crap though. I recently got a jug of Sportpharma Strawberry and that stuff is the bomb :D

ON banana cream casein and vanilla casein are both fantastic, however I have tried only the vanilla ice cream whey. The whey wasn't to any extent bad in flavor, it was however fairly weak. There are definitely better.

i can't stand any protein in water, have to mix it with milk...

Heh, that could be the case, but drinking a glass of milk (with whey mixed in) after a hard workout would make me gag.

ON's vanilla ice cream whey is terrible!! I've branched out and found so many other protein powders that taste a million times better than ON. You can't go wrong with any of their casein flavors though.

ON Whey is disgusting. I have been saying this for quite a while, it tastes like a chemical explosion in your mouth. I let my friends try it and they always comment how awful the chemical aftertaste is.

I think it tastes amazing. I love it. I yacked the first three or four times I drank their casien though. I think that stuff is NASTY.

I drink em with milk all the time. I find it very refreshing. I have a very high tolerance for milk and lactose though. I go threw over a gallon every day.

Taste is not my primary concern, but I strait up puked a few times from the taste of their casein.

Haven't tried the casein yet....some preworkout drinks have that effect on me though

a lot of good flavors, some flavors that are sub par... some companies, specifically gaspari and xtreme formulations, have raisen the bar on protein taste/texture/mixability

I've been drinking ON 100% whey for about 6 months now and love it, double chocolate is great even better with natural pb, i recently bought the sample pack to see if there was any other flavors that were good. Ended up buying a 5 pounder of the mochachino and a 2 pounder of the orange cream.

As for casein, i cant stomach it at all regardless of the flavor. i dont know how you guys do it.

If money is no option i just got a sample of ISOflex Chocolate PB and it was amazing by far the best protein (taste wise) I've ever had but its pricey compared to all others

Iv tried various ON flavors over a long time and I would agree that its not a great tasting protein powder, its not even good, but it is ok and doesn't make me gag. Id give it credit and say its a good budget whey, especially if you like having heaps of the stuff. Personally I couldn't have heaps of the stuff and would rather go without even a scoop a day. I wont use anything thats not on the same lines of Lean Desert or Myofusion that id rate as second best. Try any of them and im pretty sure those ON variety packs will get thrown out or put to the side.

This. Most people like their whey but hate their casein, myself included.

Definitely not nasty, but there are better tasting proteins out there for sure. ON is a quality brand that listens to their consumers about flavors, so you have to give them props for that.

ON isn't really a budget whey at all, unless you buy them on sale of course. SciVation whey and American whey are more budget proteins if you buy them in bulk. ON in bulk is still considerably higher priced than other bulk proteins. Lean Desert is also a mix of concentrate and casein, so it's not in the same category as ON whey is.

My ON protein tastes like pure awesome and smells like victory. If I'm ever in a comma I want a shake a day at least poured down my throat just so I remember the taste when I wake up!

ON Caramel Toffee Fudge with unsweetened vanilla almond milk is by far the best tasting protein shake I have tried so far.
