Great taste, easy to mix
 June 13, 2015
"I enjoyed the flavor of this protein powder! It was very easy to mix with a mixer cup at work for lunch. I also tried it a home in the blender with frozen strawberries, bananas, some water and spinach. Delish!!"

Horrible Taste - Stevia has been added!
 December 8, 2014
"Buyer Beware! Stevia has been added to the formulation.
I have enjoyed using this particular protein meal for many, many years now. I have tried just about every flavor but always seem to go back to this Straw/Bana mix. Which is what I have been ordering for 2+ years straight.
The last order I placed, came in the mail as per usual. The second I opened the can, I could tell the color was off.. or different.. and then there was a distinctive smell. Once I made my normal morning smoothie, there was a terrible aftertaste. Ugh. Inedible. I am not a fan of “fake” sugary tasting products. THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE. I have many friends try it as well… all of them gave it the thumbs down.
I contacted Vitacost, and of course I got a full refund b/c they are awesome. But I am bummed b/c this is my morning go-to and now I am stuck, with a product I wont use and now I don’t know what else to try. So I contacted Natures Plus and told them of the issue and they admitted that they in fact changed the formulations and this is what it would taste like going forward. So when I compared the ingredients of the old and the new, this is what I found.
I hope Vitacost updates their ingredients list on their site b/c as of now its completely incorrect and follows the old ingredients list.
Here is what was added, after potassium citrate, “stevia, citric acid, tri-calcium phosphate, malic acid, magnesium hydroxide”.
I think the buyer should be made aware if they are buying a product with Stevia in it. It says it nowhere on the can. I can’t stand Stevia or any kind of fake tasting product. Kind of a bummer."

Good value
 February 25, 2011
"All the Spiru-tein products are good value for the money here. It's much less expensive to buy it from Vita-Cost.
As for the product itself, it is a great flavor. It is a good source of protein and vitamins, especially for vegetarians."

Not Good!!
 November 21, 2007
"I was sooo looking forward to this as I love the Vanilla flavor, however, this was NASTY. I tried adding extra fruit, but the aftertaste the mix left behind could not be hid...even by tons of fruit."
