Every protein shake connoisseur understands there are certain recipes and flavor combinations that are more delicious and irresistible than a heavy set of squats. The chocolate and peanut butter protein shake has long been a staple in any gymrat’s repertoire. Often times this involves mixing up whole milk, peanut butter, and chocolate protein in a blender (I like to toss in a banana and spinach too) and voila you’ve got yourself a delicious and nutritious treat for your muscles.
If you’re anything like me sometimes you go on hardcore peanut butter binges and find yourself lacking a critical ingredient for your protein shake. Ordinarily this results in me freaking out like I just saw somebody doing partial reps on squats, but now Optimum Nutrition has created a brilliant fix: they put the peanut butter in the chocolate protein powder with their recent release of Gold Standard 100% Whey Chocolate Peanut Butter.
Our members were lucky enough to try some of these awesome protein samples in their December packs and all we’ve heard from them is how awesome it is that the best protein powder just got even tastier. Aside from the taste what is it that makes Optimum’s 100% Whey Gold Standard so awesome? Let’s break down the best selling and most decorated protein powder on the planet:
Optimum’s latest flavor release is a clear winner and wins our vote for the best overall protein sample we featured in JackedPack in 2012. It’s top quality ingredient profile, mixability, purity, and reasonable price make it a no brainer in terms of your staple protein. More expensive and higher quality powders exist (including their own Platinum Hydrowhey), but this is likely the best bang for your buck.
