GNC Whey Iso Burst Protein Powder Review

I love a good Protein Powder and many times, it’s not easy to find. I’ve used products that leave a sour taste, metallic flavour or don’t dissolve well, leaving you with a chewy shake (ew).

I’ve used GNC products in the past and have always been very impressed with the quality. They taste great, they mix well and they keep me feeling fuller longer. Most recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to partner with GNC and have been using their Whey Iso Burst Chocolate Protein Powder.  Taken from their website:

“Whey ISO Burst contains 39 grams of protein per serving derived from Cross Flow Microfiltered (CFM) Whey Protein Isolate. This high quality whey isolate has an exceptional protein percentage while being very low in fat, carbohydrates and lactose. Whey ISO Burst also contains a balanced array of naturally occurring whey protein microfractions and is an excellent source of essential amino acids.”

I’m no expert when it comes to such matters and like the majority of consumers out there, I look to the quality of the product as it suits and fits my lifestyle. Does it taste good? Is it versatile? Does it fill me up? The other stuff is still important but I need to know that if I invest in a product, it’s not going to sit on my pantry shelf until it expires. I leave the more technical questions to the professionals to answer for me (and for the record, I’ve always found the staff at GNC to be very knowledgeable about their products).

I am very pleased with this powder. Very. It tastes amazing and fulfills my raging sweet tooth. It makes amazing shakes and amps up some other great recipes, taking them to the next level. The best part is that I can sneak it into recipes without hubby knowing about it :)

The only thing I found odd was that there was no pre-measured scoop in the tub. I’m thinking this may have been an oops at packing time because anything I’ve ever bought from GNC has always included a scoop. But that was really the only thing and it’s a minor tidbit at that. Overall, I am extremely impressed and needing to head back to the store to re-stock because I’m almost out!

  1. I have been using the Banana Berry Burst lately and love it, too.

    I thought there was no scoop in mine either… found it about half way through. Funny.

    Glad you liked the chocolate. Good to get a recommendation. Thanks. Nice review.

  2. I keep swapping back and forth between GNC and the cheap Walmart whey proteins. The GNC stuff definitely tastes better, but the price gets me sometimes.

    Great recipes, btw. Thanks!

  3. It goes without saying that a product review should be unbiased. This is why I stopped reading the moment I came to “Most recently, I’ve been given the opportunity to partner with GNC.”
    Certainly you wouldn’t mess up the partnership by giving them a negative review.

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  5. Surfing around I noticed your site book-marked as: GNC Whey Iso Burst Protein
    Powder Review. Now I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets
    you a lot of visitors? I’ve been contemplating doing some book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn’t sure if it
    would yield any positive results. Many thanks.

  7. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take
    a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just
    3G .. Anyways, wonderful site!

  8. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If
    so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  9. Thank you for every other informative site. Where else may I get that kind
    of information written in such an ideal way?
    I have a challenge that Iam simply now running on, and I have been on the look out for
    such information.

  10. Tip 1 There is no doubt that the essential bodybuilding
    supplement is protein. Although specific intent is more heinous because intent
    is targeted, general intent is equally as dangerous.

    The right pre-workout supplements boost your strength and endurance, as well as increases your focus and muscle
