    Vanilla Whey Protein Powder: The Unprompted, Unsolicited, Unbiased Mega Review

    Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
    The Unprompted, Unsolicited, Unbiased Mega Review


    What is this tomfoolery, you gluttonous buffoon?
    Dreamers dream, Artists create, and this Fool bought a bunch of varieties of Vanilla Whey Protein powders to review and compare. Am I going to scientifically break down the ingredients in each container? Heck no. I'm going to make a bunch of shakes, serve them for myself, my friends and family, and then ask them for their opinions. Maybe this can help YOU or other people looking to sort through all of the reviews for the BEST VANILLA WHEY PROTEIN.

    Pics or it didn't happen.
    This is the first round of Vanilla Whey Protein Powders I'll be trying out. I plan on buying more to continue my comparisons.

    For the first round the following are included (From Left To Right):
    1. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey French Vanilla Creme
    2. Designer Protein Lite Whey Protein Vanilla Cupcake
    3. MyProtein Impact Whey Isolate Vanilla
    4. Muscle Feast Isolate Whey Protein Vanilla
    5. Xtend Pro Whey Isolate Vanilla Ice Cream
    6. PES Select Protein Gourmet Vanilla
    7. Dymatize ISO 100 Gourmet Vanilla

    Completed Reviews
    Vanilla Whey Protein Score
    Dymatize ISO 100 Gourmet Vanilla 90
    PES Select Protein Gourmet Vanilla 75
    Xtend Pro Whey Isolate Vanilla Ice Cream 30
    Designer Protein Lite Whey Protein Vanilla Cupcake 15

    WORK IN PROGRESS

    They’re technically not all Vanilla either as you have vanilla cupcake, vanilla Creme and vanilla ice cream in there.

    I want my money back.

    This sounds like fun.

    Vanilla is the only taste in Whey I can somewhat tolerate.

    My whey journey :

    Tried neutral, that 2kg bucket landed in the sink instantly. Smelt horrible.

    Tried chocolate and was very very close to dying after a leg session, then drank this and it got so bad I was kneeling in the piss on the gym toilet and threw up.
    (Bucket landed in the bushes)

    Tried the red scitec bucket and it was so sweet I had to flush it down the toilet

    Vanilla and 1,5 Milk is good. It's too sweet but I can live with that since I don't wanna eat a 2lbs chicken every day.

    Designer Protein Lite Whey Protein Vanilla Cupcake

    [Forgot to take a picture of the shakes today, but I'll edit this in later this week.]


    Shake Style Two (2) scoops instead of One (1) because literally every other protein uses serving sizes of +20 g of protein and I want to keep the comparisons apples to apples. Blender with soy milk.
    Taste It's surprisingly delicious for first sips, it tastes like creamy vanilla but I could definitely taste the whey as well. Not a terrible thing, but should be noted.
    After Taste Yes, after drinking the whole glass the back of the tongue felt the aftertaste of artificial sweetener. This sentiment was shared by professional tester, also known as my mom.
    Texture No complaints in this department because this shake definitely had texture. It tasted super creamy.
    Mixability No sediment, then again I used a blender so there shouldn't be issues. Still, wasn't an issue cleaning the blender due to sticking.
    Overall I mean, if you're only looking to add around 10 grams of protein to your shakes the after taste wouldn't be terrible. But that's kind of like trying to fit a square in a triangle shaped hole. You COULD do it, but why? I'd rather just find something better that doesn't have after taste at +20 g per serving. Because I hate wasting food, I'll still finish this MOFO somehow. My Mom is happy trying it out in smaller doses to see if the after taste doesn't taste as strong that way. Second impressions coming later this week.
    Stomach Feel Gentle, didn't feel like a rock sitting in there.
    Ranking This is the new standard so ranking is set at 50 points
    *Changed to 25 points because I realize this isn't very good at all
    **Updated to 15 points

    I'm actually hoping it's as disgusting as you say it is so we can set a new standard for ZERO in the rankings

    There are only three rules in Vanilla Whey Protein Club

    I forgot the other two but one of them is probably NO REFUNDS SUCKAH!! :P

    LMFAO

    The way you describe casually throwing buckets full of protein amuses me

    I'm imagining just a warzone of buckets and protein powder surrounding your place

    Rest assured, we'll find at least one not-toss-worthy bucket eventually (Spare the chickenz)

    Dymatize ISO 100 Gourmet Vanilla

    [Adding in picture from mobile later]


    Shake Style One (1) scoop + Soy Milk in blender. Also, Two (2) scoops + Water stirred by spoon.
    Taste It tastes wonderful. No artificial flavor. The one scoop mixed with soy milk brought out the flavor of whey, whereas the double scoop mixed with water had no flavor of whey. I preferred the double scoop mixed with water, as it really brought out the flavor of vanilla ice cream.
    After Taste No. No after taste on either of them. This was clearly a superior product.
    Texture I thought the texture was going to be an issue because the powder in the container looked kind of clumpy (will attach picture later), however this was not an issue at all.
    Mixability No sediment, and it mixed VERY easily with just a spoon. Completely dissolved, so that was pretty impressive to be honest.
    Overall I'm sold. I'll be interested in trying more whey protein from Dymatize. Clearly they know what they're doing and deliver a quality product. What I'm most happy with is that I prefer taking double scoops of protein, and it was both delicious (with no aftertaste, no artificial flavor) and VERY easy to mix. Bottom line, great taste, no artificial flavor, no after taste, mixes completely with little effort. This is a winner.
    Stomach Feel It doesn't sit hard in the stomach.
    Ranking It's definitely better than Designer Protein Lite Whey Protein Vanilla Cupcake in basically every way. In rough terms, it's easily twice as good. The question is, is it three times as good? I'd say yes. I'll rework the points which don't mean much anyway to account for 3X better.

    Yeah I JUST figured that out.

    I'm planning on adding in a Cellucor protein for the next round because I really liked that C4 Ultimate On The Go.

    TWO questions:

    1) Is C4 Ultimate On The Go cancelled?
    https://c4energy.com/products/c4-ultimate-on-the-go

    2) Which vanilla protein from the Cellucor lineup would you recommend?
    I was initially going to try this out Cellucor COR-Performance, but the only product I see being offered on your site is WHEY SPORT PROTEIN POWDER.

    Thanks in advance!

    Originally Posted by taydbear7 View Post

    YES!

    I figured if a brand can nail down one of the basic protein flavors it's worth trying out more of their stuff, so now I'm hyped to check Fruity Pebbles out.

    It seems like Peanut Butter and Chocolate Caramel were also among favorites here on the board, so lots of variety to look forward to

    It's funny because normally, I love vanilla flavored anything, but I haven't found a vanilla protein powder that didn't taste horrible to me, except a sample of Trutein, blah. Though, I definitely haven't tried as many as most. I'm leery after bad vanilla's three times in a row, hate to buy another big ass tub and have it taste like garbage again

    I tried Cinnamon Bun from Dymatize. I'm really like sugary things, hella bad sweet tooth over here, but man....that was so sweet, I couldn't handle it. I ended up diluting with twice as much liquid and it was still just too much. Excellent flavor profile though and my 9 year old loved it, so there's that. Haha.

    PES Select Protein Gourmet Vanilla



    Shake Style One (1) scoop + Soy Milk in blender. Also, One (1) scoop + Water. Also, also, Two (2) scoops + Water stirred by spoon.
    Taste The flavor itself is pretty good. This vanilla flavor is unique in that it's creamier. The only issue comes with double scoop shakes, where the flavor exposes itself as artificial. It should be noted that if you stick to single scoop shakes, it tastes pretty good.
    After Taste There isn't an after taste for single scoop shakes. There is an after taste of artificial flavor for double scoop shakes, however.
    Texture I'll include a photo later, but the texture is creamy. It looks like a thicker shake and the little black vanilla flakes make it look like a genuine vanilla shake so that was a nice touch as well. It looks appetizing.
    Mixability It's not sticky when mixing this shake, the protein doesn't stick to the spoon or the insides of glasses. It does clump, but you can work out the clumps if you remember to focus on mixing in the clumps at the end. But overall, it does mix pretty easily. In a shaker it mixes pretty easily as well.
    Overall This is a pretty good product, but it's really meant to be consumed as single scoop servings. The clumping doesn't bother me, the flavor is good, the texture is good, and it just looks good. It's a solid product.
    Stomach Feel It doesn't sit hard in the stomach.
    Ranking It's definitely better than Designer Whey Protein. The single scoop is wonderful, and I don't want the negative aspects to overshadow this. This shake was meant to be consumed as one scoop per shake, and it excels at this. But because of clumping and the artificial flavor is exposed in double scoop shakes it's not at the same level as Dymatize ISO 100. It's still a very good quality product if you only want single scoop protein, so it depends what you're looking for. I recommend it and I'm up for trying another flavor from PES Select.

    Xtend Pro Whey Isolate Vanilla Ice Cream



    Shake Style One (1) scoop + Soy Milk in blender. Also, One (1) scoop + Water. Also, also, Two (2) scoops + Water stirred by spoon.
    Taste The vanilla flavor isn't terrible, but it's not great. One problem is the artificial taste. Another problem is that the flavor is too sweet.
    After Taste The double scoop just wasn't really doable because of the taste. I'm not sure if I'd call it after taste, or just part of the normal taste, but it's not great.
    Texture I'll include a photo later, but the texture is kind of gross. It's more on the watery side of texture with the odd protein stuff floating around.
    Mixability It does mix, but it sticks to the mixing spoon, and it sticks to the inside edges of the glass. So it's pretty sticky. It looks more like milky water, except the milky part and the watery part are separate.
    Overall Finishing the container was a mission, not a pleasure. There was enough for half a scoop more at the bottom and I decided I'd put in enough effort and it wasn't worth it. I won't be having any more of this.
    Stomach Feel It doesn't sit hard in the stomach.
    Ranking It's still better than Designer Whey protein, but that's a pretty low bar. It's probably 1.5 to 2 times better than Designer Whey protein.
