Use milk, if your diet allows.

use more fluid than suggested on the package, and milk (like lardboy said)

Maybe could add some artificial sweetener, splenda maybe? Milk would probably help the most but I would mix with water when taking post workout.

It seems like I just posted the same thing several months ago. I feel your pain!! With help from my WBB brothers I discovered that you actually get used to it, and you do (sorta). I mixed my chocolate whey with skim milk and to help the flavor, I throw in a bananna. That seems to help. But I just drink a swallow at a time until its gone. That's about all the help I can offer.

Seriously I have never had a bad tasting shake in my life. I could drink them all the time.

Good Call, throwing a packet of Splenda in there will work and the fillers in Splenda (Maltodextrin and Dextrose) are small and would be fine Post workout.

Otherwise find a Sugar Free Sucralose syrup without glycerine and pour a little of that in. Davinci, Atkins, and carbolite are pretty much pure sucralose, and you get them in Choco flavor. I used to pour a tablespoon or two(of the Atkins Choco) into my APM60 DoubleShot Choco's to make them a little tastier, it worked Great.

Get the little bathroom-style Dixie cups. Fill it up, drink in one good gulp, and repeat until the shake is gone. Use less water (or milk - I use H2O 'cause I'm trying to lose my lard) than recommended, so you can get an 8oz. shake down in about 3-5 gulps.

Kinda like Vodka.

I don't get it. Theres a thread like this every week. Protein shakes have never bothered me. I kind of like them. I've tried a few brands too. I just don't get what the big deal is. I really wonder about people.

Oh yeah, I forgot: Whatever liquid you use, Drink it WARM!
It's MUCH easier to drink, IMO.

I see on a lot of protein bars and shake packages, Lean Body in particular, there is a seal on it saying, "Gold Medal in Taste Awards" or something to that effect.

What are these "Taste Awards"? Do they actually exist? Where are they held? I want answers, dammit!

GNC, 100% Whey, Chocolate... you can't beat the taste of that with milk. That's all i have to say.

Whenever I drink warm liquids it makes me feel full, which could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on if you were cutting or bulking.

I drink mine with water and I can tell you that all of them taste like a bunch of sugary crap to me. I hate sweet things and have a hard time with everything but with Isopure. Unfortunately I'm not rich so I have to put up with it. To make matters worst, I let it sit on my mouth and do a few chewing motions to have some saliva mixed up with it. It sucks. :zipit:

I use optmimun 100% natural Vanilla. Good Sh!t. I have also tried Muscle Milk and EAS. Put that in the blender with ice and it tastes like ice-cream.

Hey the one guy was right...I hate GNC they are the devil but the "GNC 100% Whey Protein" mixed with skim milk with a spoon tastes just like chocolate milk and is pretty cheap...Isopure Chocolate also tastes very good but is a little more expensive.

I must agree. I tried 6 or 7 brands, and GNC is the best. I also dissolves quicker.

Didn't bother to read the thread. I just usually chime in and say WTF, you some kind of french chief. I just don't get it. They don't bother me at all. I usually stick with chocolate, have tried strawberry. I might have tried a vanilla that wasn't great. But pretty much every chocolates been good.

Some people seem to have a pretty week stomachs. Its only 1 glass. Then again I drank alot of straight booze when I was young so not much bothers me.

I like the taste, I'd rather be drinking a chocolatey protein shake than a coke. choco mint is just too good...

which reminds me, there's no milk in the house, and no car to take out. :eek:

Try strawberry next time.

I got the "On" brand whey from 1fast400 -- I slugged it down pretty fast the first time I tried it, but I needn't have bothered. It tasted pretty darn delicious! Give it a try sometime.

(btw, I'm not affiliated w/ the company; I'm just happy that I've found a whey that doesn't taste nasty.)

Well, I have tried different whey myself and love Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey. I love the double chocolate one. I have also tried vanilla and ordered strawberry this past Thursday.


I remember GNC had whey that tasted like Orange Bang. I liked that one too, but Optimum is much much better. It is very cheap and dissolves so easily in water.

hmm, I am kind of pessimistic when it comes to trying the strawberry, I've heard bad things about it... harry, tell me if it's good, because I love strawberry flavor things...

Scott S. is it good as in "I don't really mind" good or "wow that's nice" good?

I think I'll be ordering some 5 lbs. of strawberry next time...

On=Optimum Nutrition

I think it taste real good. Don't taste like a protein powder.

Once I get the strawberry I will let you know Soul.

I guess there's an ass for every seat, huh? :D

I didn't want to sound like an infomercial or whatever, but I'm really enjoying the taste of the Optimum Nutrition Strawberry. I think you should give it a shot, SoulOfKorea. It's what I'm going to stick with. I think that what you mix it with makes a difference. I mix whey, dextrose, and maltodextrin in equal proportions, FWIW.

Not much of a chocolate person, really.
