Thanks for the heads up OP.
I put in a spoon of some PB2 to counter the sweet flavor.

I don't like stevia (or lo han or most of the others). It's like those people who think cilantro tastes like soap. Can anyone comment on how noticeable it is for someone who doesn't like it?

Went to Costco at Warden in GTA.

Inquired about cookies and cream MP. They said they will not get a shipment in. It shows discontinued with the item # that I gave from the Costco website.

So unless it's given a new item # when it goes on salev later on this month online is the only way to go.

Never had MP C&C as I usually have Kaizen but I'm low and with people in this thread talking about it decided to give it a go.

Thought I'd provide an update on those wanting to pick up the C&C in store for $5 less...

Have you considered mixing with an Unflavored Protein powder ?

I purchased MP chocolate for years. But after September of 2021 all my Costco MP bags have been terrible. Poor taste, chalky and very hard to mix.

I may try one again from another retailer as they may have cheaped out on the mix for the costco bulk.

MP Combat, they are adding "cheaper" single amino acids to increase the protein amount, so in the lab test protein amount is tested higher than it originally is. If you check the ingredients list, you will see, l-leucine, l-isoleucine, l-valine.
You can watch this for more info about this:

Leanfit chocolate is delicious! Add a little salt and maybe a little bit of coffee cream and it turns into smooth tasting chocolate milk. Its the salt that makes it smooth.

The amino acids you listed are BCAAs and are actually more expensive. These may actually make a better product if you believe additional BCAAs augment muscle growth . Cheaper amino acids used to spike protein content are glycine and taurine which are non essential amino acids and provide no benefit.

You can still amino spike with any free form amino acid including BCAAs. Obviously it's not as cost effective and frowned upon as using the cheaper glycine and taurine but it is still a simple way to "up" the protein content you can claim on the label. The fact that there generally is no need to add any additional amino acids to high quality blends and that this is their budget oriented offering makes this a questionable product.

Item # is 1545255 for anyone looking. I noticed this last week as well. Not going to win over any $/kg folks especially with the musclepharm at $35 but I've always been satisfied with it so I don't mind the price. This is a good deal as it's usually $85 elsewhere for the 2.27kg tubs so it's about the best price you can get for ON.
I called Costco, and this isn't carried anywhere in GTA

Mix it with plain Greek yogurt at a 1g whey:10g yogurt ratio. The tartness of the yogurt will tone down the sweetness and the sweetness of the whey will tone down the tartness of the yogurt. You're left with a delicious light mousse flavour/texture that you can mix with other things (nuts, berries) if you like!

Or make some baked goods with it. You don't have to drink it. :)

The MP Combat is still available from Costco thru Instacart...I got some yesterday...they still give the $15 off but due to it being Instacart there's a mark up so expect to pay about $5 more for the item thus bringing the savings down to about $10 off...still worth it for me as it saves me running around the city like an idiot looking for something and burning more $ in gas than savings on the item
