This product review is for Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder by Optimum Nutrition, specifically for Double Rich Chocolate flavor.

When it comes to working out, building muscles, and losing weight, the most important thing is the diet. It doesn't matter how much you exercise if you don't change your diet.

When lifting weights and doing hard core exercises, you must also take good nutrition for your body to help build the muscles.

There are so many good food recommended during weight lifting but by far, the #1 choice is Whey protein powder as it provides sufficient and immediate proteins your body needs to rebuild the muscles.

I have tried various Whey protein powders but my favorite Whey protein powders are the ones made by Optimum Nutrition.

I haven't tried other flavors but I tend to stick with chocolate flavors because to be honest, I'm afraid to take any chance with vanilla or strawberry flavors.

The double-rich chocolate flavor was surprisingly tasty and the powder dissolves in water really well.

I highly recommend this Gold Standard Whey protein powder but if you can afford to spend little more money, I would recommend Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey protein powder, which is my favorite whey protein powder so far.

David's Conclusion


  • Tasty (at least for double rich chocolate flavor)
  • Easy to mix with water and spoon
  • Reliable and trustworthy brand


  • A bit pricier than other brands but you get what you pay for
