I have to say. I've taken Optimum Nutrition chocolate whey protein for the past 14-15 months, and yeah I liked it. I figured that was about as good as it got in terms of protein powder (because vanilla and strawberry SUCKED).
After hearing so much about the greatness of Metabolic Drive, I decided I'd splurge a little (no clue how 2 bucks total when you add milk to it is "splurging" but you get my point, lol), and amazed is an understatement.
The smell blew me away when I first opened it up. I'd never smelled even regular milk chocolate smell THAT good. I started using it for my shakes with milk right before bed time, since I had been using cottage cheese for the longest time, but figured at late night times when I'm already tired, it's easier to just drink instead of eat.
If I had to say anything about the taste, I'd say it's almost like buttery chocolate. Not sure what that is, but that's what I think of. This does not taste like a supplement at ALL. I even let people who aren't into healthy eating at all smell it and they all loved it.
I will say when I mix it with a lot of stuff (pb, cottage cheese, banana), it kind of tastes like regular protein powder. However, when used just with milk and the powder, it's unbeatable. Muscle milk doesn't hold anything to Metabolic Drive.
So, that's all I have to say. I didn't want to continue using this stuff before I bought it, but now I don't see how I won't be coming back month after month for more of this stuff. This, AND Surge! Original flavor is something I look forward to every week.
My only complaint...MAKE A BIGGER VERSION THAN JUST 2 LBS!
