If you made it to this page you’ve probably already done plenty of research on protein powder in regards to price, health, safety, ingredients, etc. I won’t go too much into that, but what I will say is……… this is an OK deal from Costco. If you’re a regular Costco shopper & you enjoy the optimum nutrition brand, then you probably already purchase this stuff. What makes it a really good deal is when it goes on sale. They only carry chocolate & vanilla. I’ve had this product in the past & I’ve always enjoyed it. I usually switch back and forth between chocolate and vanilla because after 5 pounds of this stuff I’m usually ready for another flavor. The protein powder I use now is from Amazon & I highly recommend it. Continue reading & I’ll link the products I use and let you know why. The reason this is a good deal is because it’s $49.99 (Amazon). If you want to read thousand of reviews follow these 2 Amazon links for the optimum nutrition brand (Amazon)…………..

Here’s some of the highlights of this protein powder……

  • 24 grams of protein per serving
  • 1 gram of fat per serving
  • 110 calories per serving
  • RBST & gluten free
  • Ingredient List: Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Peptides), Natural & Artificial Flavor, Lecithin, Salt, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Lactase

Now the ingredient list is the reason I opt for brand on Amazon. I am not a fan of the fake sweeteners & prefer the unflavored protein powder. It allows me to make whatever flavor I desire without all the additional chemicals. Frozen fruit is my sweetener of choice. It’s perfect! The following are the 2 protein powders I have tried with great success, as well as the organic cacao powder I add to give it that chocolaty flavor………

Now like I said in the beginning…….you’ve probably done plenty of research & I’m sure all these protein powders have their pro’s & con’s. I just know I prefer the 2 brand from Amazon, so this is one of the few times I would recommend Amazon over Costco (It still doesn’t feel right to say). Please let me know what you think…..
