I hate the insanely slow shipping process with your products but I really like the flavor of this. Since you're discontinuing it I've noticed other whey manufacturers offering fruity flavors so I'm just going to take my business elsewhere. Thanks.
Let me preface this review by first sharing that I do not like most protein powder shakes. If you do not like traditional protein powders which transform into a think, milkshake-like consistency, then you may enjoy Prime Whey (Whey Protein Isolate). You may also enjoy Prime Whey if you prefer a fruit flavored drink compared to a chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, or fruity cereal flavored drink. After stirring Prime Whey into water with a spoon or other device (do not shake it), it transforms into a fairly thin liquid that has a consistency that reminded me of whole milk or orange juice with calcium added. The liquid is not as thin as produced by some clear whey protein powders on the market though, which is what I was hoping to get with Prime Whey. The flavor (Watermelon Sorbet) tasted fine, but wished the consistency was a little thinner. If Elemental Formulations developed a clear whey protein powder in the future though, I would be willing to try it simply because I have more faith in the people behind the development of this product than other companies.
Love the taste. Hate the slow shipping and foam.
Terrible shipping times.
I never enjoyed drinking Whey because all formulas sat too heavily in my stomach or the flavors just weren't good. I was skeptical at first with this flavor, but it's the best tasting protein I've ever had. The Watermelon Sorbet feels like you're drinking juice. Great formulation and taste.
Thanks for ruining protein shakes for me... As someone who's consumed protein powder for many years from many brands, this is just on another level. You gained a new fan!
This is the best protein powder I've ever tasted. Tastes exactly like a watermelon jolly rancher in the most incredible way. When I took my first sip, I got so excited that I literally ran to my friend and made her taste it (she confirmed it's delicious). I hope they come out with more incredible flavors!
The Watermelon Sorbet Whey Protein is the best tasting ever. Liquid Jolly Rancher. I have my sister and my brother hooked on it as well.
Unique flavor that tastes great. I love the high quality ingredients and expertise that was put behind it as well.
I’ve been waiting almost 3 weeks to test EF supplements. I am currently living in Nicaragua (Central America) , and don’t mind paying extra bucks to support Dr. Helms, Omar and the rest of the team. The protein flavor is amazing and it mixes well with water. Utopia X is a game changer, and I really hope more people try this amazing product. I still get benefits from it after training at the office. Also, big shoutout to Jessica Buettner And Jonathan Cayco.
I love the nutritional aspect of the protein powder but I have to say the watermelon sorbet flavor is not as enjoyable as I had hoped for. I'm not sure if it can be improved any further, but more flavor options with the same great nutritional value that is unmatched anywhere else would be amazing!!!
Finally got my Prime Whey Protein down here in Texas and it’s the real deal. Cleanest tasting protein I’ve had to date and the flavor profile is so far in my opinion, second to NONE. Thanks Omar and team and please keep producing these supplements FULL THROTTLE.
Chocolate flavored supplements don't sit well with me. This one tastes slightly tangy, I thoroughly look forward to!
Bought this product (along with the pre-workout) during the Black Friday sale and this product blew me away. I'm an under-eater by nature, so it's always a pain hitting my daily protein target; but I also can't stand the taste of 99% of protein shakes. Not only can I drink this without feeling like I'm about to throw up—the flavor is actually enjoyable! The container it comes in is compact (was almost skeptical it had the stated amount of servings), so it doesn't takeover an entire shelf in my pantry. Will certainly be my go-to whey protein product going forward.
This stuff is great! It's superfine which makes a uniform mix without foaming and without clumping. Taste is fantastic and the price is very reasonable. 5 stars.
This stuff tastes great just like a watermelon jolly rancher, but honestly after drinking it everyday it kind of became a chore for me to drink and sometimes I just wanted a quick mild protein shake to chug. I'll likely rotate back to this here and there especially in the summer,. but can't drink it everyday for long periods of time.
The whey tastes like liquid Jolly Rancher!!!
Absolutely delicious but be careful with your mixing cuz this foams a lot!
Never had such a refreshing protein drink mix like elemental formulations! Smells good, tastes good, feels good.
The taste is pretty good. My issue is regardless of how I mix it up it is always clumpy. Besides that everything else I enjoy about the product.
The *best* tasting whey powder I've ever used, full stop. I looked forward to drinking it every single time. So good.
Tastiest whey protein I’ve ever had, only down side was the foaming when mixing but other than that it’s delicious.
Excellent flavor! I was skeptical that a watermelon flavor protein could be delicious and I was delighted to be wrong. This powder mixes well with enough water, has good consistency, and tastes great. I will definitely order more soon.
Wish it came in a bigger size!
Easily the best tasting and best mixing protein powder I've ever had
Best protien I’ve ever used. Mixes excellent with water and the taste is unexpectedly great. Initially thought it would taste horrible to be honest. Glad I tried it and will be buying more.
I am not the typical customer, but take it from a basic lady in the suburbs this one is worth trying. If you had told me that a dude bro from youtube and his nerd friend from another defunct supplement company were going to sell me a pricey protein powder flavored with sucralose in a weird ass watermelon flavor, well I'd tell you to pound sand. And yet here I am ordering two more.
First the powder is very fine and blends like a dream, one scoop gets you 20 grams; which is nice. Fewer scoops means less water so its easier to drink in the short window of time i have between a workout and my next task for the day. I generally don't love fruit flavors but this one is honestly good, the texture is not weird or thick and the aftertaste from the sweetener is minimal.
Found this through Iron Culture podcast, and yes ben I did scan the QR code for the purity tests, then I tried to find the same info for the other "pure science based" brand in my cabinet and it didn't exist (they "aren't allowed" to release testing info). So i bought this in good faith that its producers really cared about product quality. So far they have delivered.
I love this protein but I would love to also see another formulation that is dairy free. For all the lactose intolerant folks.
I wish I'd ordered more than one, because I just finished my tub the watermelon flavor is so refreshing, especially as it's so hot now-- it's also nice to have a protein powder that's not chocolate, for a change. Seriously the best tasting and mixing protein powder I've ever tried.
That good good
Hands down the best tasting whey on the market. Refreshing flavor tastes amazing on its own and is also great mixed with Greek yogurt for breakfast. One of the few whey products that I’ve found to be easily digestible as well. I’m so happy I was able to order more during the re stock !
This is seriously the best protein powder I've ever tried. It mixes well, doesn't chunk up, and the macros are great. It also tastes delicious, of course-- it's nice to have a protein powder that's not a chocolate or vanilla flavor for once.
Easily the best tasting and mixing protein on the market. If you have a sensitive stomach to whey and can’t do the typical chocolate/vanilla, this stuff will work! Amazing. I can’t wait to get more!!
The only protein that i’ve been able to drink straight. It doesn’t taste like protein, it tastes like strawberry milk!
I’m enjoying the flavor. It’s different from the normal chocolate/ peanut butter flavors.
One of the best protein powders I've ever had!
To be honest, I was wondering how a protein drink that tastes like watermelon would taste. I am so accustomed to vanilla and chocolate that I was unsure. However, I had belief in Omar and his products so I ordered some. I was pleasantly surprised how great this tastes, without having to run my blender at night. It mixes with just a fork or spoon and tastes exactly like watermelon. If you ever had watermelon airheads growing up (I did) this will remind you of those, but without the crazy number of carbs and garbage.
This is THE BEST whey protein I've ever had and I've tried almost all of them in the last 5 years. If you're lactose intolerant, you can actually tolerate this one!
Really great protein! It’s great to not have a milky protein powder that also mixes super well. I use it mixed with the Prime Pre since I train 1st thing in the AM.
Really like the protein powder! Love the flavor and texture of this compared to super thick shakes. Can easily drink this at any time of the day. Will say there was some clumping but probably just due to me not using enough water. Definitely would buy again!
Taste was better than expected for someone who isn't the biggest fan of watermelon flavors. Mixes super well in my blender bottle with little foaming. All in all very happy with the product.
The best tasting protein out there. Easy to drink. Easy to digest. Refreshing flavor.
One word....incredible! I can't believe this stuff tastes the way it does and only requires a little shake. Job well done
I like this protein a lot! Hat awesome nutrients and it tastes just like candy, very sweet! Too sweet for my taste, I don't use a whole spoon/cup like it says, I use two tablespoons for about 300 ml
Love the sourness in it and makes u full
What a pleasant surprise! The flavor is awesome, and I'm not a real fan of watermelon-flavored anythings. It mixes extremely well, and does not have the consistency of a protein shake. Normally, I mix my whey with Gatorade, but I don't want to mix this with anything other than water, so I don't lose the great flavor.
I wasn't sure about a fruit flavored whey but this blew all of my expectations out of the water. I'm already ordering more because I'm definitely going to keep using it. Best whey I've had!
Love the flavor!! It’s a nice change up from the traditional protein flavors. I will say mixability is so so. It just takes a bit for it all to get mixed, that’s even following the directions of swirling it vs. shaking. Great product though. I plan to re-order when I run out.
One of the best tasting proteins I’ve ever had! It’s even better tasting with milk! Highly recommend!!!!
Amazing flavor, tastes just like a watermelon hard candy! Also mixes very easy, no need to shake. Great job guys!
I'm not a fruity whey kind of person but this is BOMB. I like it with water but this whey with milk takes it to the next level. Very easy to mix, very tasty, overall I have 0 complaints. I'm excited to try whatever flavors come next! (Coughpleaseconsiderdoingorangecough.)
This is so good. I was really tired of other protein powers, and some would hurt my stomach. It stirs so easily and the “chunks” are literally minuscule. It tastes so good. It’s like a really tasty BCAA taste. I mixed mine with watermelon flavored syrup for some sugar but just water works super well too. I ordered one container, tried it, and immediately ordered 2 more. Also, fast shipping! Woo!
Like the flavor - nice change from the chocolate flavor of my old protein powder. Could dissolve better; has a few small lumps. Will buy again.
Best tasting whey I had in awhile, great formula also! Will buy again!
TL;DR at the bottom
Flavor is great, not too thick at all, and goes well in the frozen fruit smoothies I make. Additionally, while it has 100 cals per 20 g of protein serving compared to myProtein's 80 cals per 20 grams of protein, I suspect that myprotein is either misleading with the calories or underdosing their protein, given the biological fact that 1 g of protein=5 calories. I trust Omar a lot to not skimp on quality, and the 100 cals for 20 grams matches 5 cals for 1 g on the money. Additionally, unlike myProtein, this powder doesn't explode into a cloud of dust when you dump the scoop into the glass, likely due to the higher quality.
Downsides: when trying to drink in just water alone, this doesn't mix all that well if you follow the instructions and stir with a spoon. When using the spoon method, I found it to be clumpy no matter how long I would stir. Shaking it does create some foam and it needs to settle for a bit, but it mixes better that way. I've had similar issues with other sweet-flavored/clear protein powders (namely myProtein), I was just hoping those wouldn't be an issue for this one since EF advertised it as not having these problems. Also, 20 servings is roughly 10 days worth for me, which for $40 after shipping is just not a great value compared to the 10 lb bag of Optimum Whey that I get for $100. It would be dope if I could order larger amounts and reap the savings from buying in bulk. I was definitely disappointed to see a tub barely bigger than a C4 pre-workout container when I opened the box.
TL;DR: Great flavor and quality, but the clumpy mixing was a bit of a let down, and the price per volume is a rough sell. I'm not willing to buy this every 10 days to keep my smoothies full of protein. But, I am willing to continue buying probably monthly and just skimping on the protein in my smoothies. The sooner you guys come out with bulk purchasing options, the happier I'll be.
I love this product before I get into the gym. That fact that it taste like juice makes it easy to consume anytime of the day.
So easy to drink the protein during my workout and when I need a little extra protein for the day. The Pre tastes amazing too.
I was tired of the plain ol’ whey protein from all these other companies. This excites me again. Different and unique yet effective in its own way.
I stopped supplementing whey about 3 years ago. Didn’t like the taste and didn’t see the need if I was hitting my daily protein goals. Elemental Whey has me rethinking that decision, though. The flavor is a 10/10 and the fact that it doesn’t clump up and settle at the bottom is a game changer for me. Definitely going to be repurchasing this one.
This is hands down the best tasting supplement of all time. It’s almost unbelievable that it’s protein!
I love the flavor and how clean it is. My biggest complaint is it doesn’t come in bigger sizes and one serving is only 20g of protein.
I am usually not the biggest fan of fruit based wheys, but I can’t believe how much I loved this! I’ve never had a whey that I can mix with a spoon and have it produce zero clumps. The mix-ability blows my mind! Taste is really unique and it reminds me of a melted watermelon sorbet dessert. I like mixing it with almond milk for a creamery, shake type consistency. It’s safe to say this is my new favorite whey and I plan on buying again and again!
Incredibly soluble, barely any foam if mixed properly, tastes heavenly. Top notch whey.
amazing protein unlike anything else on the market. watermelon flavor is excellent. easy to drink, not chalky or thick. will 100% purchase again and recommend to others.
I typically shy away from fruity protein powder flavors, so I was a bit skeptical of this particular product. I’m very happy to say that I couldn’t have been more wrong. This is hands down the best tasting protein powder I have ever had. It’s mixability is great, flavor is great, and there is no weird after taste or film left in your mouth. This will be my go-to protein powder for as long as it’s available. Looking forward to continued success for this company!
This is the whey to gO
BUY IT NOW NO REGRETS SUPER YUMMY JOLLY RANCHER I COULD BINGE ON IT
A few things... 1) The products do what they say they do. They taste great for supplements and the formulations are obviously thoughtful and unique. In short, top notch supplements that check all the boxes. 2) I like that I can trust the people involved. But they don't rely on that -- the 3rd party testing gives a lot to peace-of-mind. 3) I'm trying to think of something negative to say in the interest of being balanced, but I honestly can't think of any. When I buy supplements, I'm coming here.
Just like some of the other reviews, I was able to order early and just received my shipment. WOW! This protein is delicious! It tastes like a liquid Watermelon Jolly Rancher. Order this. You won't regret it.
I don’t use whey because it always sucks. I was intrigued when I saw this was flavored watermelon sorbet, rather than your classic chocolate or vanilla. Let’s just say, I now enjoy one whey protein. This is game changing and actually enjoyable. Nice work guys.
If you’re anything like me, you tend shy away from fruit-profile whey shakes. With Prime Whey watermelon sorbet I have one word- DON’T SLEEP ON THIS! This is some of the best whey I’ve had. Easy to have intra workout, satisfying post-workout. Can’t recommend this enough! It’s delicious!
I received the email for early access and placed my order for Prime Whey on 1/3/21. Today is 1/6/21 and after trying Prime Whey for the first time yesterday I almost had no choice but to place my order again immediately. Did not want to risk this selling out on release date, because it is that good. Prime whey taste and mixability is a step above any other whey I have tried. My favorite part about it is that it is very drinkable intraworkout especially when compared to the traditional whey flavors that you just don't want to taste in the middle of your session. This product lived up to it's hype 100%.
