Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein Unflavored Powder, 20 Servings *Packaging May Vary* Certified Vegan Gluten Free Organic & Non-GMO, Plant Based Sugar Free Protein Shake with Probiotics & Enzymes
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Firstly, the nutrition packed into this is spot on. The taste is also great too, although if you're used to those horrible fake tasting protein drinks, this one doesn't taste like that, it's more natural so therefore not to everyones liking. So why the 1 star rating?... I've been purchasing this regularly, now all of a sudden the price has doubled! Doubled!? I don't mind paying a bit extra for a quality product but going from £24.99 to £49.99 is pure greed and therefore I will stop purchasing this product, what a shame.
Nice stuff however they are starting to get a bit greedy the price has jumped up over the past few months around £20 more now than it once was for the same amount of powder. Think I will be giving it a miss this time.
Edit: a month after I wrote the review above the price has gone up once again. Save your money.
My favourite protein powder I have tried thus far. My tummy does not tolerate most grains and legumes prepared by conventional means whatsoever, they have to be sprouted or fermented and I don't always have the time/preparation skills to sprout things and fermented products like tempeh are too expensive to eat enough of everyday. This is just such an easy way to get a big dose of protein in my breakfast/lunch that doesn't hurt my insides, make me massively bloated or gassy. Keeps me full (sometimes even too full!), super satisfied and provides me with a LOT of energy.
PS Best smoothie/milkshake ever = banana, half an avocado, 1 tbsp nut butter, 1 tbsp maca, 1 tbsp raw cacao, 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 scoop of this protein powder and as much almond milk as you needed to get your prefered consistency.
i was sceptical at first however, love this protein. As a vegan I was shopping around and found this. Unlike other proteins this is very smooth with no awful taste like you get with whey proteins. There is no need to mix the powder in a blender, all i use is a shaker cup. I have mine with Almond milk and it tastes great. My only issue is the price. I like to wait until this goes down to around £25. When taking the protein twice a day the carton lasts only 1 week, making £35 very expensive for the quantity. To be honest £25 is still expensive. Nevertheless, it tastes really good and i would recommend it to not only those who are on a plant based diet but everyone who needs that added protein in take. hopefully, Garden of life will start selling bigger bags or containers. Another thing that was annoying there's more container then protein powder literally a joke.
I way regular consumer until they raised the price. After few years I've decided to come back because it was the best protein product that I ever tasted in my life. Unfortunately, what I got now is sweet, grainy product that's no better then the cheapest available protein on Amazon.
If you want to know what wall paper paste tastes like then look no further. I want to return it but Amazon won't allow me to. And to add insult to injury I have just come across Garden of Life web page and found they are selling this for £20.00 less with free delivery. I AM NOT HAPPY WITH AMAZON RIGHT NOW. I took note of those who rated this as yummy and so ordered two. The one I want to return is the unopened one but Amazon will not allow me to return it. Don't believe everything on Amazon reviews I think some people must get some sort of payback for leaving good reviews.
Had 4 tubs now. The first 2 vanilla and then 1 chocolate and they were all 5 star. However this latest batch is awful.
I always use a blender to blend it and the first three tubs mixed perfectly, smooth and tasty. Although I did notice slight differences between each batch. This latest batch is awful and won't blend or mix at all. Its extremely gritty and feels like i have sand in my drink.
Also one of the reasons I switched to Vegan protein was because the whey protein didn't use to agree with my stomach! With the first 3 batches of this protein they were great however this 4th one is just like the whey protein.
Not sure where its gone wrong for them but I will be trying a different brand for my next batch.
