I chose this protein after taking a look at a lot of different brands and options, but chose Dark Mountain due to the fact that it is lean with no added fillers or any additional BS. The grass fed protein is preservative free, which in today's age doesn't happen often. The chocolate flavor is pretty basic (hence the 4 star rating), but it gets the job done. Shakes into water just fine using a shaker, mixes even better in shake with added ingredients. All a around great protein with BCAAs and other vitamins to help repair and recovery of muscles. I would definitely recommend you to try it out.
