But haven't been able to find an alternative that tastes as good. I've tried the Whey Protein from Costco - bleh! gross. I've also tried Pure protein from Walmart - gross again! (plus I want powder, not the pre-mixed)
Any suggestions? I really don't want to have to go to the health food store and buy a whole tub of it before trying.
Costco is really awesome about returns. You could return the chocolate whey protein even though it's been opened and even if you don't have the receipt. They are the best! I think that bag cost close to $50, so it would be worth it to take it back and get the money.
I'm trying a couple from Nashua as soon as they arrive. I'll post here in a few days/week what I thought of them. They are the Syntax Matrix milk chocolate and simply vanilla. There is a way to buy a "sample" of some of the protein powders on Nashua for $1.95 per serving. Jen
