Answer:
I'd say the chocolate fudge variety doesn't taste very good at all when mixed with water - a chalky / ground cardboard taste is how I'd describe it. It has an aftertaste that I'd say is a mix of protein powder and unsweetened baking chocolate. It does not taste sweet at all, so the chocolate flavor seems kind of superf… see more I'd say the chocolate fudge variety doesn't taste very good at all when mixed with water - a chalky / ground cardboard taste is how I'd describe it. It has an aftertaste that I'd say is a mix of protein powder and unsweetened baking chocolate. It does not taste sweet at all, so the chocolate flavor seems kind of superfluous. It is not enjoyable to drink, and the only way I got through 8oz of it was by staying conscious of it being an efficient way to get protein/vitamins/fiber without many calories. (Vanilla may be another story, as might mixing it with milk; haven't tried these yet.) see less I'd say the chocolate fudge variety doesn't taste very good at all when mixed with water - a chalky / ground cardboard taste is how I'd describe it.

Answer:
I love this protein powder, but recently discovered it failed several tests in 2018 for arsenic and lead/cadmium levels. It was too high in both. Google the independent studies for protein powders and you will see it got an overall rating of 3 stars out of 5. What lowered this from 5 was the presence of arsenic and … see more I love this protein powder, but recently discovered it failed several tests in 2018 for arsenic and lead/cadmium levels.

To me it clumps less ans is more smooth as well as being less chalky. GOL seemed to just not mix or blend well with whatever liquid I used and with orgain that isnt an issue. I liked GOL, but I really really like orgain proteins better. see less I started using Garden of life raw vanilla protein a xouple of years ago but then switched to orgain vanilla on a whim because my store didnt have GOL at that moment.. and orgain tastes sooo much better to me.

Answer:
To me, it tastes pretty neutral and earthy, it reminds me of rice milk flavor. The longer it sits the thicker it seems to get. I mix it with almond milk and sometimes smoothies.I started with a small amount in the smoothie and slowly added more to make sure it wasn't too thick. This is the only protein powder I've ever liked.

Answer:
I couldn't give an accurate comparison since I've never had shakeology. I will say the taste is good and sometimes I'll drink it because I actually like it and because work/school resulted in me having to skip a meal. Is it a wonderful milkshake that will have your taste buds going off? No but it won't make you gag eit… see more I couldn't give an accurate comparison since I've never had shakeology.

Either way, the enzymes may help with whichever one you choose, Vitamin Shoppe has great ones. see less I have never had a gas issue, I was surprised when I started reading this.

Answer:
Yes. It has brown rice protein, which has all the necessary amino acids (the other forms of protein in the powder all add up to make a complete amino acid profile as well)
