I love the profile of this. It is very clean, no fillers. Very high percent of protein to total weight. Frosted Chocolate Cupcake is one of the least rich flavors of the Select line. It doesn't have that flavor that pops compared to some of the others. BUT it pretty much blows most chocolate flavors out of the water and I'm still giving it a 10. You do indeed get a frosting flavor come through. The flavor name is pretty true. It seems to mix up slightly thinner too than the other Select flavors for some reason. I like that it's a protein blend and it mixes thicker than most protein powders. And good research behind a blend. I mostly use mine for a late night sludge snack mixed with greek yogurt and/or oats. I find myself adding less water to my sludge for FCC. Anyway you use it, super tasty. This is one supplement that I pay extra for a higher quality. I've tried every flavor, they are all the bomb. Peanut Butter Cookie and Snickerdoodle are the most unique. I highly recommend this product and any flavor.
This review is based on trying almost all of the Pes flavors. Taste wise my favorite is the frosted choc cupcake. It mixes well with almond milk but when I ran out of almond milk I mixed it with just water and the flavor was just as good. The peanut butter cup was my second choice although I have tried all but the snicker-doodle and I have to say there was not one that I did not like. Delivering 24 gram of protein and low in fat and carbs this products works great for me. As far as pricing it is a good deal for the money and I have found it on clearance which is even a better deal. I highly recommend this product.

PES is hands down the best tasting protein I have tried. When there are so many good quality protein brands out there now, this is mainly what I consider when buying protein now. I have tried the chocolate cupcake, snickerdoodle, and chocolate peanut butter, and all are very good. It mixes well with water, milk, or whatever else you would want to use and has a great macro panel. I would highly recommend PES to anyone placing emphasis on taste for their whey protein.
PES is my go-to brand for protein. I've tried many other, and none can even come close to PES. I always end up returning other brands and buying PES with the credit. I have not been disappointed with any of their flavors. In order from favorite to least favorite is Vanilla, CPBC, CnC, Blondie. I never tried their milk chocolate, but I just ordered their new Chocolate Cupcake one and I can't wait to try it! I use this protein for shakes, in yogurt, and in oats. I have oats+protein 2x per day and I never tire of it thanks to all of PES's delicious flavors. It is one supplement I ALWAYS have on hand. I've recently turned my mom on to it too (my goal is muscle building/fat loss, hers is weight loss) and she said she uses it alone as a shake and it prevents her cravings for sweets in the evening and is satiating enough to use as a meal replacement! I would recommend this to everyone and anyone looking to get high-quality protein in their diet.
Let me start with a disclaimer, I am a trainer and most of my friends compete in some sort of athletic or fitness competitions. I was brought onto PES through a physique competitor friend who had said that recently PES protein was tested to see if their protein content was what they advertised. When the results came back from the lab, the content was indeed not what they advertised, it was actually higher! From him telling me that I decided I would check it out and I did. Obviously with just a few weeks use under my belt I will not be able to tell you anything shocking, but I like it a lot. It doesn't taste like a milk shake, and if you want that then go try Syntha-6 (which scored a D+ in a recent protein content rating) or Muscle Milk (all that saturated fat). PES tastes good, seems to work, and is low in carbs and calories which is good enough for me. Also, I tried the chocolate peanut butter.
Let me start by saying that this protein powder was recommended to me by a friend so I purchased a small tub to try. I tried mixing a shake with it but didn't like how it turned out so I tried a pancake with some oat flour, water, and a scoop of this... BAM!! That's all it took and I knew I'd be buying this again and again. I might not be making shakes with it but I'm making awesome protein pancakes every night! Try it out, you won't be disappointed. I've tried numerous proteins for baking and this one is my favourite.
Love this protein, and have purchased multiple times. This protein is a little sweet if you're making a normal shake with water, however when used with more liquid or milk it's absolutely perfect. This protein really shines when used in baking though! My favorite use for this is to make snickerdoodle protein pancakes, so amazing.
This is a review for both The Snickerdoodle and Cookies n Creme flavored protein from PES. As far as flavor goes, they both taste great. Snickerdoodle is near spot on to the flavor of an actual snickerdoodle. cookies n creme is more of just a bit of a french vanilla flavor but there is some resemblance to the targeted flavor of an "Oreo". The macronutrient profile of the protein is fantastic, quite comparable with ON's Gold standard. Though, the types of protein delivering the 24 grams of protein in Select is different than Gold standard in that Select contains a mixture of not only whey but casein as well. This is an ideal blend of proteins as you get the great bcaa's mixture of whey with the particularly high amount of leucine, while you also get the benefit of the slower digestion rate of casein protein. I used the Select protein to cook and bake quite a few times. From pancakes, to cheese cakes to cookies and homemade quest bars all turned out delicious. I made quite a delicious version of the cookies n creme quest bar using vitafiber syrup at home that I would dare say was better than Quest's! Select as far as pricing is a pretty great deal as well. It is slightly higher priced than Gold standard, but as I've mentioned you've got a better blend of protein with Select so the price is justified, especially considering that price difference is minimal. All in all, Select protein is a great protein that has easily become my number one choice.
This protein powder is really good! I've had the snickerdoodle flavor which was also delicious but the PB cup flavor tastes SO GOOD! It is sweet, but not artificial tasting!
Hands down the best protein that I have tried from taste to ingredients it covers all the bases. It is yet another outstanding product from PES especially the Peanut Butter Cup flavor.
The chocolate peanut butter cup is delicious! It does not taste like a Reese's cup but it does taste like a Justin's Peanut Butter cup which is also tastes so **** good! My new favorite flavor.
I believe MTS Whey has the best tasting protein on the market but I gave this a try based on all the good reviews I kept seeing and boy was I happy I did. The Snickerdoodle flavor tastes just like a snckerdoodle cookie. It is more on the cinnamon side and I would suggest adding a little more water because it is very sweet but it tastes great after a long workout. Even better are the macros for it. Low in fat and carbs = a perfect combination for me. I do wish it mixed a little easier so there were no little clumps but the taste makes up for that. Can't wait to try the Amazing Blondie next!
I am seriously addicted to snickerdoodle, best tasting protein I have had by far! Also a very good product for muscle repair and recovery.
This Select protein tastes amazing. It mixes well, and has a nice thick consistency. It is a little sweet, but I like it. It makes me feel like I'm indulging in a dessert. Great macronutrient profile, too.
Cookies and cream Select protein is with out a doubt the best flavor i've ever had so far. All other cookies and cream flavors just seem to taste bland or more like vanilla. Fantastic profile considering the flavor and price. Perfect when cutting thanks to only 1 carb and 1.5 fat per serve is ridiculously easy to fit in your diet. No amino spiking either, just whey.
You will be amazed at how amazing this snickerdoodle protein tastes. I've been around for awhile and tried all the popular brands and theyve got NOTHING on this. I bought it more so on the nutrition facts, its hard to find lower calorie protein blends that arent garbage (blends have proven better than whey alone) so I thought id give this a shot. Man, this is the protein ive always dreamed of. I dont think i will ever buy another kind in my life!
If you care for not only quality, but also taste, you cant go wrong with this one. I usually don't go for chocolate flavored proteins but this one is incredible. It's like a rich milk chocolate.
I've tried plenty of protein brands and Select Protein blows each and every one of them out of the water in terms of taste and macro profile. Both cookies & cream and milk chocolate are fantastic, and I usually don't go for chocolate-flavored proteins.
