Great price, great formula - tastes awful

I usually use Vega powder but I was looking for a cheaper alternative. Garden of Life's ingredients looked similar and I was drawn by the raw aspect too—but unfortunately on its own mixed with water (as I always took Vega and whey-based proteins before), this stuff tastes vile. Chalky and the chocolate flavor is barely noticeable. I guess I'll have to use this for smoothies or baking and order Vega instead!

Not half as good as I hoped

I ordered this because it's a raw protein powder. However, when it comes to taste I am really disapointed. It does not really have a chocolate flavor. I have to add cacao to make it more tastefull. It also does not mix as well as other products. Will not order again.

I sure hope this is extra nutritious because it is very grainy, doesn't mix well, and has no chocolate taste.
Better in cooking than smoothies

Not the best of protein powders I've tried, better in cooking than smoothies as it had a very powdery taste.
Not buying again

Update: found out that the rice is sourced from China and has high levels of heavy metal contamination. Shame because I quite liked this product.
Pretty good protein blend. Not sickly sweet. I bit gritty though, but that is the price you pay for non-dairy proteins.
