I did. The cinnabun one is eh. Had it last night. Thankfully these aren't causing gastric distress (as some are known to do that to me ) but the flavor is just too.....fake for me. I cut out a lot of the splenda/truvia type stuff in my diet, so i can really taste the sweetners in it.

Even Garden Of Life Raw has soy in it.. it's just fermented. I might be able to tolerate the taste if it at least didn't have soy.
There are plenty of options for you! My favorites are:

Sun Warrior Classic Protein Raw Vegan
Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Raw Protein
Source Naturals True Whey
Garden Of Life RAW Protein
Note: you mentioned there is fermented soy in Garden of Life Raw Protein but there isn't. Check out the Nutrition Facts.

Netrition also carries these which may interest you:

Oh, see, I'm a sweetener fan. I was reading a review on a body building website and there is a seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Pie. He took a scoop of protein powder and added enough milk (he said 1/4 cup. I would try Almond Breeze) and stirred it to a pudding consistency. He said it it was completely dissolved and just like the high priced protein puddings. He did it with the peach mango also. I have that one also so may try making pudding. As for the Pumpkin Pie flavor, I use vanilla powder, freeze a cup of pumpkin puree, add cinnamon to unsweetened Almond Breeze. Lots of fiber and it is SO good. I think if you only want one flavor, the vanilla is the most versatile but I do love the chocolate peanut butter.

Thanks Kathy! That Sun Warrior looks decent..although I'm not really sold yet on vegetable protein.

There is. I was looking at them in the store the other day. Check out the official Garden of Life website. I guess Netrition likes to deceive knowing many low carbers purchase from there. There is also brewer's yeast in it.

I understand your concern about soy. However, Netrition is not deceiving anyone. The Nutrition Facts on Netrition's web site for the Garden of Life Raw Protein clearly indicate brewer's yeast is included. You are correct, however, that 2 of the 4 flavors do contain fermented soy. My apologies on that as I didn't notice it.

The information supplied in the Nutrition Facts come directly from the manufacturer, in this case, Garden of Life. We will have Netrition staff review the Nutrition Facts on all 4 flavors of the Raw Protein to make sure they are consistent with the product in stock.

We have reviewed the Garden of Life Raw Protein product labels for all 4 flavors. According to the manufacturer's label, the only flavor that does NOT contain soy or fermented soy is the Vanilla Spiced Chai flavor. The Vanilla Spiced Chai label indicates it is "soy free".

I am new to the low carb thing but I have used Dymatize ISO•100 for a long time. It is zero carbs and tastes amazing.

well my huge 5 lb tub of Trutein vanilla arrived today. I bought it after reading this thread and it is YUMMY! I made cookies with it and want to try to make the protein pudding. I don't drink shakes so looking for any other ideas to make baked goods with the Trutein.

Thanks again everyone for all the recommendations. I am so happy to have finally found a protein powder I like.
