"... I have started a weight lifting routine 2 months ago. I saw this product at Sams when I started and decided to add it to my diet for post workout. My results have been great in the two months I've been lifting. My physical appearance and increase in weight lifted shows my gains. It may be genetics or it may be the added Muscletech whey protein. Whatever it is I'm sticking to my routine with this protein. I'm not a picky eater so the taste of the vanilla is acceptable. I'm getting results so two thumbs up!"

Yes, protein is always a great supplement. But remember, it's always best to use real food, only use this if you are in a rush or on the go. Good luck Rahul!

I have been using the Sam's Club Version for 4 years. The package now says "New and Improved". It Tastes awful!! I think it just improves there bottom line by putting in more fillers and cheaper ingredients.I cant't drink it anymore.

"... I may be the only one that actually likes the vanilla. It's not bad flaver, I've had worst. Mainly i'm looking to add weight to my frame 6'1 175 and so far have gained 8 pounds in past month and a half. Hoping to gain 10 more pounds. I can't say that for the other protein powders I've had in the past so I'm quite pleased so far. Plus the price is right. Not spending $60 for Myoplex no matter how good they say it is."

"... horrible..for someone on a fatloss diet...i generally weigh the pounds lost during the week, this crap protein nullified all my efforts of taking enough spinach and salads, really a wrong choice ended up gaining at the end of the week, if you look carefully u can literally see the sugar crystals on top, low on protein and high on sugar. felt cheated. substandard price for substandard quality."

Side effects to using a protein? NO.

Unless you consider better strength, muscle gains and recovery improvements dangerous.

"... How much creatine monohydrate is in this product per serving? (2 scoops) "


July 5, 2012
response by Shane

The exact amount of creatine is not listed but I doubt it's a signficant amount as this is primarily a PROTEIN product. If you are interested in creatine I would suggest to supplement with it with a creatine product such as CON-CRET or CREACORE.


July 6, 2012
response by Guy

According to a rep, it has 2 grams of creatine per scoop

"... I for one am really enjoying the flavor upgrade, really really good. I stick with chocolate so I can only vouche for that one but I can have it 2-3 times a day and not get sick of it. Hard to find a good bulk size like this around with a quality brand like this so obviously, it's at the top of my list."

"... The only thing good about this new and improved formula is the resealable bag [which actually works] As for the drink, I have been using this brand for about a year,and was happy with the taste and the texture of the previous formula. This new stuff is cloyingly sweet and has an odd, thick texture, that leaves a person thirsty.Not what one wants to happen in the middle of a workout."

This place reviews ALL ASPECTS of the product, whichever the reviewer feels like concentrating on - that's why I keep coming back.

This is a high quality whey protein supplements. Whey protein is used to help you build more muscle and help you recover from workouts.

It's a great BULK package deal.

"... Awesome smoothie. 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup water, 5 ice cubes, 1 tbsp honey and 1-2 scoops of the muscletech vanilla. I tried this without the protein for my kids and it wasn't very good. It's so much better with the protein powder. The vanilla made it awesome. Just wondering if it;s safe to give an 11 year old? Is there anything harmful in it."


April 23, 2012
response by Drey

I'll have to try that recipe, thanks for sharing it Jen.

You might get a mix reaction to this but I beleive the basic whey protein shakes are OK for kids. Now, the more advanced or types that have the word "hardcore" etc in them that contain other ingredients I would not give them.

BTW, it's much better than a "shake" at McDonalds, so good for you in taking the healthy smart step.

"... Okay here is my review on the product 1) its a waste of money because its literally five pounds of crap and it takes a long time to finish. 2) I have no clue where they got the damn gold medal taste because it tastes like a chemical. And i just came off of takeing GNC's whey protein WHICH IS AWESOME and what i would recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing this product. And yes GNC is a little higher but its a lot better than having to hold your nose everytime u drink it!!!"

"... The key with any protein supplement is proper mixing - of you
Do not have a shaker to mix it properly it will not taste as good
as it can. I mix mine with skim milk and put two pieces of ice in
to help it mix properly. I am going to try the double chocolate.
Remember this is a protein shake not an Ice Cream Sundae."

"... This is exactly what I was looking for. I used to use the myoplex chocolate powder, and I loved it. It's not as easy to find nowadays, so I bought this brand at sam's club. I am 100% pleased. It tastes great. I mix with water and ice in the blender and it's like a chocolate milkshake. I have tried the smoothie king version in the past and it was nasty. I threw it out. This stuff is great tho. I have only tried the chocolate, so I can't vouch for the vanilla. "

They don't list the exact grams of these but they are in there. You'd have to call up the Muscletech hotline to find out the exact amounts if you really are that interested.

"... I have been using the Samís EAS for the past 4 years. I only purchase at Samís because itís the cheapest in my area and protein is protein, at least thatís what I used to think. When Samís stopped carrying EAS I switched to Muscletech chocolate flavor, the current Samís brand. At first I had a hard time with the taste. It was really bubbly and I had a hard time getting it down. I was frustrated but decided to stick with it and I am glad I did. If you can hang in there until you finish the first bag, your body will become used to the taste. I now actually enjoy the taste, funny how your body adapts. The best part is the strength gains I am having. At first I thought I was just having a good day at the gym. But then I noticed that all my days were good. I am getting noticeably stronger which is really motivating me. I don't know if changing protein brands is something you should do periodically, but I am glad I was forced into it. At this point even if I still hated the taste, I would stick with it because of the results. Protein is the only supplement I take and I use 2 scoops before and after the workout with 2% milk. "

"... I was actually glad when Sam's stopped carrying EAS. Muscletech is a better protein powder option. It has higher protein and less carbs per serving. Most health food store wont even sell EAS. Only grocery stores and Wal-Mart sell it.And I personally think tastes better. The only problem I have is that it isn't quite as mixable as other protein powders. "

"... I've beenusing the EAS chocolate protein from Sam's Club for a long time. the taste was reasonably good and it blended well with skim milk. This Muscletech replacement is absolutely horrible, there is absolutely no chocolate taste whatsoever. I can't describe the taste; its some type of chemical taste. On top of that, it's extremely thick, very difficult to mix in the blender. I can't believe anyone who manufactured this product actually tasted it and thought it was acceptable. I'll never buy it again and will contact Sam's Club with my opinion."

"... Muscletech chocolate tastes great if u mix it with apple juice... I bought a bag of the protein and 2 bottles of the members mark apple juice which was 5 bucks... I have used almost every brand of protien... I uses nitro tech about 5 years ago and couldn't stand it .. It have me terrible gas and sent me running to the bathroom within 30 min of taking it ... I saw this bag at SAMs a few months ago and actually avoided it... A friend of mine mixed me a protien shake last week and I said wow this is good.. He then told me it was SAMs apple juice and muscletech's good for the price but I personally prefer myofusion cookies and cream the best .. I jug like to mix things up.... Cheers "

"... Horrible tasting vanilla. Even mixed with fruit and other stuff you can't mask the awful flavor. There is also no info on the grams per serving of the BCAA, glutamine and Creatine in this product. Probably an ineffective amount, but enough to put it in the ingredient list. Make me wonder quality if protein. Sweet whey 30% or WC at 90+%. Who really knows without lab analysis! To bad Sam's stopped carrying my favorite 5 lb bag EAS whey."

I understand Muscletech does'nt make the packaging but when you put your name on something you're judged by it. I expected better from Muscletech, guess I'm just old school.

"... Like most people here, I too am a Sam's Club member so I had to switch from EAS to get the price. I was excited at first because I used MuscleTech in the past with great results, but quit because of the inflated price. I understand this is a "supplement", but the vanilla taste is pretty bad. I think it has a plain vanilla pudding taste and smell to it. So if you like pudding, you will be happy with this supplement, I however don't. Just started using it yesterday, it was painful to force four down so I will be trying some methods to doctor it up a bit."

"... I've just started using Muscletech protein that is sold in the 5 lb bags at Sams Club. I've been using the 5 lb bags of EAS protein for over two years now and plan on switching over if the results I get from the Muscletech brand are at least equally as good as the EAS. So far, I am satisfied with the Muscletech. I just haven't used it long enough yet to know for sure what kind of results it will deliver. The taste is good, but my opinion for those who complain about the taste....Don't be a's a workout supplement! Not a buffet desert! If you're truly serious, than the taste is incidental anyway! "
