I actually just saw that deal. That was an amazing price, and really, the only argument I can make is that price was only for Cookies and Cream and Rocky Road it seemed, whereas you can get pretty much any flavour at around this price too. But yes, I realise the deal isn't as the one last week.

Probably the best branded protein available.

Although the protein works are also very good, easily comparable quality at a lower price.

​Yeah, I agree that you do pay quite a premium for the brand, and I actually changed brand to save money a while back. But I do find Optimum Nutrition good value when on deal, and I always had good consistency in regards to mixing all the different flavours. I've often had quite a few brands that were hit and miss with different flavours.

Protein powder so grim, dunno how y'all do it.

​Haha, it can quite often be an acquired taste that's for sure, but then most don't really drink it because they enjoy the taste. Not all protein powder was made equally though that's for sure, both in terms of quality and taste.

Did it work for you? I just tried and selected £10 voucher and subscribe but in the end, I got only £2.20 promotion discount applied.

​Hmm that's strange, it worked without any problems for me. It sounds like you're only getting the 5% S&S discount.

Can somebody give me an actual benefit breakdown of why anybody should pay double that of Myprotein / Bulk Powders etc charge? Is it just about taste? I just can't for the life of me figure out why people almost double in some cases. Even if ON is made from a better quality whey for instance (not even sure if that's the case), the real world differences in results will be absolutely negligible. Is there something I'm overlooking or do people just like paying for the most expensive thing because... reasons?

Having tried most brands this is the best for taste, mixing , less sweeteners and overall quality. Myprotein is junk the quality of product and taste is poor and full of artificial additives

Thanks for clearing that up a bit more. Even taking the above into account though, it's literally double the price (and then some) in some cases. As for quality, MP seems to be doing pretty well on independent tests

I think I'll keep suffering through a worse taste / mixing experience and save myself 50% lol.

MyProtein unflavoured Whey has zero artificial additives, forget about the taste and just neck it and save some money

Myprotein whey is terrible imo. Can't beat ON Whey for price and quality you get.

You're right in the fact that the difference to most people will be negligible in real world use for most protein powders and for most it will just come down to taste and how your stomach reacts to it. I have tried the cheaper Impact Whey from MyProtein, but I always felt bloated after using it, and that really isn't how I wanted to feel pre-workout, but if it weren't for that fact. I'd still just be using that. But even MyProtein know that not all proteins were created equal which is also reflected in their pricing. That's why they offer "Impact Whey" and "True Whey". I would say their equivalent protein to this ON one, is "True Whey" which is actually only slightly cheaper than ON Gold Standard usually, so you pay a small premium for what some consider is a better taste and mix really.

surely an 80% Whey protein regardless of name is just that, 80% Whey and you pay a massive premium with ON just for a better mix and taste but even then that is just opinion. I use Myprotein and just mix with water and neck it, would rather pay about 19p a serving to 44p for the equivalent ON powder

​Like I said, even MyProtien don't believe protein powders are all the same, hence the difference in price between Impact and True Whey(both MyProtien branded) with True Whey being more expensive and a lot closer to the price of Optimum Nutrition. Right now though, that's out of stock and this is on sale. And at the end of the day, I think it's always better to at least have the option of paying a premium for some people than to not have a premium and just having one option only which would probably start being sold at that premium price if it had a monopoly. So people can enjoy their MyProtien and people can enjoy their ON, and it's really that simple in my my opinion.

MyProtien Impact Whey is 80% Whey the same as ON and the True Whey is 93% Protein but from a blend, that's the difference.

MyProtien Impact Whey is 80% Whey the same as ON and the True Whey is 93% Protein but from a blend, that's the difference.
ON is 90% whey protein concentrate and also a blend like True Whey, not just 80% concentrate like Impact Whey.
And then on that basis, ON provides 81.6g of protein per 100g, while True Whey provides 74.8g of protein per 100g.
In any case, this isn't a site for arguing about which products are better, it's about getting products at a lower price, everyone can decide for themselves what works for them and what doesn't. Impact Whey did not sit well with me, whereas ON and True Whey did so I personally don't like to buy Impact Whey even if it is cheaper, but if works for you, good for you, enjoy it.

I take it math isn't your strong point, if ON was 93% as you say then it would deliver 93g of protein per 100g and not 81.6g as you state.

I take it reading isn't your strong point then as I said it was 90% whey protein concentrate which is something they advertise themselves if you look it up. And you're the one that said True Whey offers 93% protein, and according to their site, it provides 74.9g protein per 100g, so you do the maths there...

I'll give you that the 93% was a typo ( to much lifting bro ;) ) but I think your getting mixed up between total net protein and the percentage of each type of protein contained within that net figure. e.g the ON is approx. 80% net (depending on the flavour its between 77 and 82% net) then within this 80% net 90% of that is Whey isolate and 10% is Soya

Okay, let's say your "typo" is incorrect, and my maths is incorrect. Then at the end of it, it seems clear to me that you're paying the premium for it being a blend, which for myself and some others, find easier to digest rather than just pure concentrate. Hence why ON and True Whey (also by MyProtein and currently costs £38.69 on their site, but has less protein per 100g than both ON and Impact Whey) both cost more than Impact Whey. but like I said, if you have no problems with Impact Whey, then be happy that's the case for you and enjoy your lower priced protein powder.

Ignore me, there was an offer if you brought a protein sample box thing you would receive a £10 voucher to use on similar products. I assumed the £10 off was this but it's clearly not if you didn't buy it.
