Just recently started taking protein. When you say time of year, does this mean this usually only goes on sale once and year? Just want to know so I can stock up.

I'd say it goes on sale about 2-3x/year... Always January and I believe sometime over summer and again in the fall.

Which is the best tasting?
Best tasting one at Costco IMO is the musclepharm cookies and cream. Best protein in the warehouse is either the kaizen or Vega... Worth the premium over the gfr.

This stuff is really gross tasting. If you're desparate and can't wait for your MyProtein order, I guess go for it.

Taste is subjective. I rather like it, and I've been around the block a few times when it comes to protein powders.

Bottom line here is that you'd be hard-pressed to find a higher quality whey protein isolate for a better price, anywhere. Someone prove me wrong.

I agree that the cookies and cream is by far the most palatable. Almost enjoyable to drink.

I have to agree with you. The cookies and cream is delicious. Especially with milk!!

As others have said, taste is subjective. I blend the chocolate powder with a heaping tablespoon of natural peanut butter, banana, milk. To me, it tastes very good.

I was in costco yesterday and noticed they're carrying optimum nutrition protein now. Same as this one on the US site https://m.costco.com/Optimum-Nutrition- ... 38794.html

I believe it was 66.99 in store
Damn. I just ordered more on Amazon.
I usually pick this up in the states.
It is "Vanilla" and stores usually only carry French Vanilla Creme or Vanilla Ice Cream.
Thanks for the info.

Last time I purchased Kaizen Vanilla, it did not mix well with water and was really not tasting much. I contacted Kaizen to make sure I did not have a "bad quality batch" and was told that the stuff they sell at costco is a different formula than the Kaizen stuff you would find in supplement stores. They told me to go to the warehouse to exchange it for another one free of charge but I was already a little deep into the can so I just went through it.

Just a FYI, i'm not saying it's bad by any means, just thought the protein geeks might like to know they have a different formula for costco
