September 21, 2013Reviewer: Lori in Washington* Terrible. Tastes nothing like vanilla. I like their other flavors, but this one is so bad. I even tried adding vanilla extract to it and truvia, but it still tastes terrible! I wanted to like it!This review is specific to Designer Whey Protein, French Vanilla
August 25, 2007Reviewer: Ray in Washington* I bought the 2 lb. tubs of Vanilla and Strawberry, At first they tasted ok, but now a couple of weeks later I can't stand the taste of them, especially the Vanilla, I have to chug them down, almost makes me sick to my stomach! I'm glad I'm almost done with the 2 tubs. I will not buy again, also they are a little high on cholesterol at 45mg a scoop.This review is specific to Designer Whey Protein, French Vanilla
0 of 1 people found the following review helpfulAugust 17, 2007Reviewer: Robert in Texas* Designer protein was the first protein supplement powder I ever tried. At first I thought the taste was OK, but after a few weeks of taking it 2-3 times a day it started to make me nauseated. It even had a laxative effect which I'm sure was extremely detrimental to my muscle building goals. The strawberry tastes ok, but the vanilla is disgusting. When mixing it tends to form hard calculus on the sides of your glass or blender which you need to scrape off later. I personally have never tried the chocolate, but have read other reviews and hear similar complaints. Since my trials with Designer I have tried Cytosport's Muscle Milk and Optimum Nutrition's Pure Whey and have found them to be much tastier and easier on my gastrointestinal system. Plus they have more protein per serving.
