A friend of mine owned a juice bar at a popular 24-hour gym in New Jersey for several years, so I got to try a lot of different proteins on the market. Recently I got a sample from Rich Gaspari at Gaspari Nutrition of a whey protein blend he is testing. I'm not one to drink vanilla ever but the vanilla was really good and the chocolate was easily the best I've ever had.

It's hard to beat the Syntrax Nectar (http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/syn/nectar.html) flavors, IMO

:cool:

After 10 years of drinking disgusting protein, Syntraxs' Nectar is a godsend...

I just bought some Chamption Nutrition (I think thats what it is) and it's the best tasting protein hands down. I have been on ON for almost a year before that. CN is just as cheap as ON but taste way better.

Would you guys pay more than average, say $35-40 for 75-80 servings with each serving being 30grams of great tasting whey protein?


Thats about .50¢ per 30g serving.

Syntrax Nectar is the best. Their Isomatrix Reloaded (chocolate hurricane flavor) also tastes great.

The question was to whey protein you cheeseball, not a blend :p (I know you threw in Nectar)

Actually, there are a few other good brands out there that have gotten better. Ergopharm has a new whey product that doesn't taste to bad (green apple)

What company are you trying to push? Heaven forbid, Muscle-Tech :rolleyes:

MuscleTech has 32 pages of advertising out of a total of 242 pages in a recent edition of Muscle and Fitness. Thats about all MuscleTech is good for, marketing. Recently I have heard nothing but bad comments about their products.

Nectar has been my favorite. It's the first non-chocolate protein I really tried and has been good; I still get some farts from it though. Now, hands down, my favorite protein is GF Pro. In my opinion the taste is much better than Nectar in that it's not as overpowering / sweet, ("just right" as Goldie-Locks would say) and it's been easier on my stomach for sure. I can't say a lot easier, because Nectar was never all that harsh, but there is a noticible difference for me. Apple, Orange, and Rasberry Lemonade are all really good. I haven't tried Cherry as I imagine everything cherry flavored tasting like cough syrup; maybe I'm wrong.

GF Pro is 10 bucks more a container, so for many that may be an issue, but protein above everything else I take is where I'm not going to cut corners. It's been the best for me so far, and I've finished off / phased out my last Nectar (barirng the introduction of some new flavor I just have to try out)...honestly didn't think I'd ever be saying that.

For non-whey, I'm still drinking down at least 2 scoops of Muscle Milk / day, usually 2 hours or so before I workout. I love the tatse of that stuff too (plus there are dozens to switch it up), and it's pretty easy on me. After YEARS of trying out nearly every protein, I'm pretty psyched having just these two in my kitchen.

I have to say Fuzzy Navel Nectar is great...The new Ergopharm (green apple) is not near as good IMO...as for results we'll see.

It's tough to beat the fruit flavored isolates.

such a loser yo

i've tried different brands, but i think my favorite are ON 100% choc mint (who'd a thought) and fuzzy navel nectar

In regards to the Gaspari Nutrition protein. Maybe he should consider a different source, because the amount of calories is nowhere near correct for the labels claims according to the macronutrients listed.

With that said, Nectar & GF Pro are great.
I still really like Optimum's vanilla and chocolate also.

everyones different. if you buy a 5lb container of a certain flavor of whey, expect that flavor to not taste so good towards the end of the container. Good tasting whey: XF cinnamon roll.
