Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein Review

1. Brand and product name: Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein

2. Flavour: Cookies and Cream

3. What made you choose this product?

I did my research - being a massive sweet-tooth, I knew that I would need a delicious flavour to fend off my cravings. It was a unanimous response online that Optimum Nutrition Cookies and Cream flavour won out over the others, so I decided to give it a try. Turns out it's kind of hard to find ON products on the shelves at nutrition stores, so naturally I jumped back online. Protein King offered me the best price for ON casein, which turned out to be much lower than their online competition.

4. How does the product taste?

OMG I can die in peace. Cookies and cream is DELISH! Granted, it's a bit of a smell-shock when you open the lid (smells like alcohol?), but it tastes amazing - just like a McDonalds McFlurry. Every night I look forward to shaking up a fresh batch of this wondrous beverage.

5. How does it mix?

This powder mixes in pretty thick, so much so that on my first try I ended up chewing the last mouthful. The next go around, I mixed in one scoop of powder with a cup and a half of skim milk. This ends up to be the perfect consistency - still a little thick, but in the way that a tasty thickshake would be.

6. Has this product delivered what it has promised / assisted you in reaching your goal, how?

Yes - I wake up less sore from the day-before's workout, and it keeps me full throughout the night. Plus, I'm noticing incredible gains already!

7. How did you find the value for money with this product?

Obviously not as good as what they have in the USA (as with everything else, duh), but compared similar powders in Australia, this one gave me the most for less. Adding on Protein King's cheapest price, it furthered it's financial effectiveness.

8. Who would you recommend this product to?

  • If you suffer from DOMS regularly
  • If you have a massive sweet-tooth (like, out of this world can't stop downing Allen's sweet tooth)
  • If you want the most product for the least cash.

9. What do you rate this product out of 10 and why? (1 the lowest and 10 the highest)

9/10 - would have given 10, but perfection tends to freak me out.

10.   Any other comments about the product?

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein fends off all my cravings, and it works well! I wake up less sore from the day-before's workout, and keeps me full past breakfast. Amazing stuff.
