Didn't much like the taste; too sweet and vanilla. Otherwise good product.
Changed formula? Update: okay again

Update: this product has gone back to tasting good again, but I got 3 bad batches (that literally smelled like a dead dog) before getting a normal one again. I had to fight to get refunds for those 3 bad batches, so I am giving 3 stars for inconsistency and customer service issues. It's otherwise a great product and tastes great with a banana. Sun Warrior seems to have changed this formula without making any mention of it! I am soooo disappointed!!! I LOVED the old stuff and had been using it for about a year. The most recent package I ordered in a slightly different color (blue rather than gold) and lists the calorie count as 80 calories/serving (rather than the old 84 calories/serving). The taste of this new stuff is BAD. I contacted the company to inquire, but I am really bummed. If it's not broke, what are you doing Sun Warrior? And a company of this caliber needs to let its customers know when it changes the formula. Very disappointed.
won't buy this one again

the vanilla flavor is good and it dissolves well in water/soy milk, however it tastes kind of slimy. compared to the regular - not raw - protein by sun warrior i'd say it's worse. so i'm gonna go back to the regular one
Strong stevia flavor

This is an all natural, raw, vegan protein mix. It is totally different from many animal-based or processed protein shakes out there, which are often, if not natural and additive-free, at least very delicious. This was not delicious or, to me, even drinkable when mixed alone. If you are unfamiliar with stevia, as I was, you may have difficulty with this product. It took me a couple weeks to get a mix that I considered palatable (bananas, blueberries, and almond milk), and over a month to get used to the strong stevia flavor. I like the raw vegan protein concept, but the stevia is not for me and I will be trying the natural unflavored variety of this product next.

Good raw vegan protein, but not sure about the taste. Will only be using this protein pancakes / cooking, not a nice enough flavour for smoothies.
