Loved it!

Pros: feel much better with more energy
Cons: gives you gas for 2-3 days but it's ok after that
"I have to say, healthwise I have gone through a lot in the last year. I could not find anything that helped me recover my energy and my health, as much as this shake did. It balanced me in everyway. With digestive problems after radiation treatment, it gave me the essential enzymes and pre-pro biotics to bring it all to balance again. I didn't have an issue with the taste, after all, it's not an ice cream shake, it is a vitamin shake. I mix it in the blender with Lactaid milk first, then add the powder, mix the two well, then add a banana and ice. It blends better this way, and tastes good. So you won't get the chalky flavor, like some mentioned. Someone recommended peanut butter in it, I will try that next. Give it a week, and you will definately feel the difference, and feel much better."

Great Shake and Great Price

Pros: great price
"I've tried several brands of shakes. I've also sold them. For the price (Less than $30) this is the BEST. I'm very careful to compare nutrition and price. And of course, taste is the big test. To my surprise, it is VERY chocolatey! It is a little chalky, but it reminds me of licking the spoon of brownie batter. Yum!"

Delicious!

Pros: delicious and great for chocolate lovers
Cons: none
"I've had many shake products over the years. This low calorie product is the best I've tried. I mix it with a handful of berries, skim milk, water and ice in my Magic Bullet and I'm out the door in a couple minutes. It's not chalky the way I mix it and it's delicious every time! Very easy to drink and it has the right amount of protein to keep the hunger away. I highly recommend it. If you don't like it, Costco has it's great return policy."

Delish!

"I have tried many protein powders and this one is pretty good. It is chalk full of 100% of the daily value of all key vitamins and minerals, which is higher than most. It is also high in fiber and has no artificial sweeteners. Plus it is very chocolatie! I love having it for breakfast."

Don't bother

Pros: cheap
Cons: undrinkable.
"This is a horrid tasting powder that even after blending in blender is grainy and unsubstantial--does not satisfy for even 10 minutes. No chocolate flavor and tastes of ground up vitamins. What to do with it?"

Love it!

Pros: great price, great taste, very healthy
Cons: can't think of any
"I love this stuff and use it as my 'recovery' drink after working out. I mix it with 8 oz. of skim milk, 1 tbsp. of peanut butter, and a few pieces of ice in my Magic Bullet. I put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes and then drink it. It tastes great. Most "healthy" powders have that weird aftertaste. Not this one. I love how much protein is in it, too. Costco has a fantastic price! I've been using the chocolate but did buy the vanilla so will try it in my next fruit smoothie. You've got nothing to lose, especially with Costco's great return policy. : )"

Great product, lots of great ingredients

Pros: taste, enzymes, pre- and probiotics, easy blending, great vitamin content
"This product compares very favorably with any other product I've tried. As an added bonus, it contains prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes, something even the better shakes from the health food store sometimes don't contain. Taste, blending, and texture are all excellent. And it is much cheaper than the best stuff I've tried from other manufacturers."

Great shake mix!!!

Pros: stay full for hours., solid protein content.
Cons: don't have any... maybe when i get tired of it...
Model Number: 50879 B50874 00A
"I've tried many protein shakes, powders and drinks over the years. My sources of protein are the occasional consumption of fish and turkey-but I have guilt. I was seriously lacking before I found this mix. Been feeling much better since using this stuff and my hair isn't thinning from a lack of protein. In the morning: I add 1/2 a banana with Soy to the mix and I'm set for hours. Taste really good!!! Haven't tried the vanilla yet."

LOVE IT

Pros: vanilla flavor
Cons: price
"I love the vanilla flavor. You can add your fruits to it and blend with LF milk or water and still get your daily nutrients. I hate pills so this is a great alternative to getting your daily vitamins. It has everything your body requires/needs. I wasn't taking multivitamins since I hate big pills and the after taste they leave in my mouth."

Very good product

"I have tried innumerable powders that proport to taste "great". Almost without exception they are awful!! Honestly, this product is the SOLE exception that I have found. Its really good and does not taste like typical "healthy for you" powders. Moreover, my daughter who has sensitivities to soy protein can have this powder. So its a double win."

Powder taste

Pros: vitamins, fiber, protein
Cons: taste
"Even after mixing with a blender the test is still powdery. Taking it to a very cold temperature as recommended, while somewhat helpful, does not overcome this shortcoming. Unless you like that sort of granulated taste I would recommend not purchasing this."
