iHerb Customer Reviews

Not yummy like the vanilla cake

Posted by Reviewer2978188 on Jan 31, 2010

Don't know why vanilla cake flavor wasn't available when I ordered, but I won't order the strawberry again. The smell reminds me of vitamin pills. We do like Country Life protein powders as a rule. I really love their Vanilla Essential Natural, but it isn't available from iherb.

Wild Strawberry protein powder

Posted by Reviewer3131583 on Jun 16, 2009

Wow is all I can say. I've tried all sorts of protein powders, even exclusive ones from medical websites. This is the BEST tasting strawberry and mixes just beautifully with my iherb shaker bottle. I will definitely order it again! Yum!!!

great flavor and consistency

Posted by Reviewer2825870 on Jan 21, 2009

I have tried numerous protein powders and this is, by far the best. Great strawberry flavor and not gritty or that undisolved powdery consistency.
