Great Price but not the same as Gold Standard
I’ve been using ON Gold Standard whey for years because, as its name implies, it is the best protein out there in terms of taste, content, and cost. I’ve also been a loyal Costco shopper for years. When I saw this online and did the math, I got really excited because per serving, this is much cheaper than anywhere else you can buy. I purchased a bag of vanilla. When it arrived, first thing I noticed is that it smelled different and had a different texture and color. Upon mixing and tasting, it is definitely totally different formula. Normally I can mix with water and have no issues chugging it, but this taste and texture is not nearly as palatable as what I’m used to. I assume this is made specifically for Costco and is a cheaper formula. It also does not have the glumatine/glutamic acid and the BCAA profile of the Gold Standard I’ve been buying for years. I wish that they would differentiate this product from normal Gold Standard formula. Seems a bit deceptive, but I guess I’m one of the few picky ones. Won’t be buying this product from Costco again, but will remain a loyal Costco shopper for all my other needs!
