    This is my attempt at starting a D&S review section like they have in G&E:
    I ordered the optimum nutrition chocolate malt jug of whey protein from amazon.com for a reasonable price.
    Taste: the chocolate taste is great as far as protein powders go when it's mixed with milk. I didn't find the taste that good when mixed with water, but compared to some other powders its pretty good.
    Mixability: I found this powder to mix extremely well. All I do is put it in a water bottle with some milk and shake it vigorously for about a minute. After that I usually don't have any powder clumps.
    Effectiveness: So far so good. I have gained more muscle mass in the last month than I did in the month prior when I didn't use protein powder.
    Other: For the only downside I'll quote comedian and friend of Joe Rogan, Joey Diaz, "it makes my farts smell like 10 dead Iranians."

    I've never tried GNC's powder but they look pretty similar. They both have BCAA's but it looks like ON's has glutamine as well. I cant speak for the taste of the GNC though.

    i am a fan of their Gold Standard Chocolate Mint flavor.
    i mix it in water and it tastes fine.
    i can only imagine how good it tastes in milk.
    i think i am going to try it right now!
