Very smooth and mild chocolate taste. Not too sweet which is the way I like it. Compared to similar natural protein powders sweetened with stevia I much prefer this to their overly sweet and chemical aftertaste. I've been trying different powders for 30 years and this is one of the better ones I've had. I will update if it causes any undo stomach upset which some inferior proteins can cause. ** For new customers of iHerb, please also visit my page for more product reviews **

The flavor is OK and the package was way bigger than expected. The problem is that a couple of weeks after receining it I became more health-concious about the things I usually eat and drink. This product contains fructose, which causes multiple problems and is one of the products to blame for the obesity epidemic around the world. So I wouldn't recommend it, stay away from fructose.

As you can read from my other reviews I have used quite a bit of protein products. Most of the time I use Vegan ones (SunWarrior, NowFoods...) and some Whey ones every now and then. I wanted to try this one because I know Jarrow has a very good reputation. Also the price/gram protein ratio (see my other reviews) is quite good. Needless to say I really wanted to like it. Bottom line - I was very disapointed. Main reasons: 1. It's very very powdery and tends to fly all over, even compared to other similar vegan/vegetarian products like nowfoods 2. It is very hard to mix and actually takes quite some efforts until you get all the lumps out. 3. it's not as sweet or tasty as others even though it has on average more sugar than others! 4. It's really not as thick as Now Foods dutch chocolate and leaves you kind of wondering whether you even had something to drink at all. Stay out. There are many other better options out there.

For me the taste is very average. I you need to note the concentration of the protein - the product is cheaper, and the concentration of the protein is ~2x lower, compering with other products.

It tastes very very bland. Hardly any taste at all. But it mixes ok. The protein is decent, easily digested and help my muscles recovery.

Good taste though.

Certainly a good product but the smell is too chemical... thus i didn't even taste the product. I prefer unflavored whey. I ordered this product because its expiration was 2012 (thus manufactured before Fukushima).

I thought the protein powder mixed well, but the flavor was so strange to me. Didn't really have a true chocolate taste. The best tasting chocolate I have tried is the sunwarrior protein.

This is the first time I buy whey protein so I don't know how the other brands taste, but to me it is pure chemical powder and taste, very unnatural and unpleasant.
