    Protein Powder That Doesn't Taste Like Cardboard?

    Does anybody know of a decent tasting protein powder I can use to make smoothies and shakes from? Preferably one that doesn't taste like cardboard? I am not so much into chocolate flavoured ones, looking for something that is vanilla or some kind of fruit flavour. Or better yet one that has no taste.

    Thanks in advance.

    Related to that: any suggestions on good tasting protein or power bars would also be welcomed, chocolate ones are okay as I prefer them better than fake chocolate powders. Just looking for some new kinds that the one or two I eat now. Thanks.

    I use Allmax Protein in strawberry flavor. It has little tiny bits of real strawberry in it. The real strawberry bits give it an almost alcohol taste. I taste the same thing with fresh strawberries. Nobody else seems to notice the taste, so mabey it's just me. But this is the only flavor I actually enjoy. It has 27 grams of protein per 30 gram scoop. It mixes well and should work great in a smoothie.

    I buy mine from Popeyes in the 6lb containers. Well, they're 5lb containers filled with an extra pound. Their prices are pretty competitive.

    As for protein bars, I eat These in the caramel crunch. It's the only flavor I've tried. These bars contain over 300 calories just so you know. And they're not a perfect snack. But pretty frickin' good as far as protein bars go.

    Geno I don't know a lot about this stuff so sorry if this is a stupid question. But I am interested in learning which is why I am asking this.
    When you say "liquid flavored protein in a beaker type container" do you mean it comes in the form of a pre-mixed drink that you would drink as is from the beaker, or would you take the liquid protein and add it to water or milk or juice?

    I am not sure we have GNC stores in Canada. But Northquad mentioned Popeyes and know there is one of those not far from where I live. I never thought to check Costco before. I tried a few kinds from Walmart, none of which I liked, but all the ones mentioned here are different so I am hopeful I can find something I like after all the suggestions here. Wow I didn't realize there were so many kinds of protein powders out there.

    Sorry about that.No I drink it right of the container.Here are some from GNC to give you an idea what they are.I bring 2 or 3 every where I go to make sure my protein level stays high.

    The problem might more profitably be viewed as "how can I use soy protein that tastes good in my bulking diet". I think this because most powdered soy products are made with heavily genetically manipulated soy going into it.

    We've tried a few different brands. Our favorite for flavor (vanilla) and texture is

    EAS Premium Protein "blend of 3 proteins" (whey, soy, casein)
    Per serving: 27g protein, 140 calories

    Costco - 6 lbs for about $35. They have chocolate too but we haven't tried it.

    My dad eats 1/2 serving mixed with his morning yogurt (blends in really well), and makes a smoothie with it every afternoon after his therapy/work-out. Smoothie = banana, yogurt, skim milk, protein powder, ice and usually another fruit (strawberries, blueberries or peach/nectarine).

    For bars, he still prefers Atkins. Not the breakfast ones/the ones with sugar alcohols (too sickly sweet). The regular ones - he especially likes all of the peanut/fudge/carmel bars. Usually around 160 calories, 12g protein, 6-8g fiber. He feels like it is a total decadent treat, and eats one almost every day. Well, it's certainly better then eating haagen das......
