This Cinnamon Swirl protein powder is delicious! I use it in my morning smoothies. Great flavor, it gives the smoothies just a hint of cinnamon and it's not overpowering.
June 7, 2017
I've been using this one for years.
May 20, 2017
This is a good quality whey protein. I like to use 1 scoop with 1 tbs of peanut butter and a hand full of mixed berries. Mixes good with water. Helped me lose 45lbs as I got back into the gym and wanted to loose fat without losing muscle.
I would recommend
Cinnamon flavor is nice change from Vanilla.
March 27, 2017
I drink a protein shake after every workout. I like this protein brand for the price and ingredients. The Cinnamon flavor is good and a nice change from vanilla.

This is my favority protein powder.
Good whey concentrate
July 9, 2017
Good whey concentrate. All their flavors are good and mixes decent. I buy Six Star due to price and budget. The power delivers good amount of protein and works for me just as well as the expensive stuff. I have never seen or noticed a difference in the expensive vs cheaper priced stuff in my 20 years of training.

I have enjoyed using this protein. The triple chocolate has a milk chocolate taste and mixes really well. I do not get clumps using a shaker bottle. I really like the fact that it has some research behind it, and that they have added some BCAA's in addition to the protein. You could consume all the protein in the world, but if something is limiting the absorption of it, then it will not do you any good. I feel like this protein has some of the added ingredients to maximize the protein absorption. I feel like it is working for me.
I have purchased my second container of this protein. I tried cookies and cream this time. It is good, with a strong vanilla taste. I think I would recommend the triple chocolate for your first purchase. Anyway, I take this protein as a recovery drink after my workout, and it really helps. Since taking this protein I have upped my workouts from 5 to 6 a week. I think this protein is helping my recovery so that I was able to increase my workout volume.

This whey protein is so delicious and smooth! It mixes very very easy and taste just like a chocolate shake. So your getting all those valuable nutrients and protein without feeling guilty! I promise you can't go wrong with this pick! A total 10 out of 10!
Great Tasting Shake
April 6, 2017
This is a great value whey protein supplement. Each serving contains 30g of protein, and 2.5g of creatine. The protein mixes very easily in a shaker bottle and tastes just like a rich vanilla or strawberry shake when mixed with milk. I find it very easy on my stomach, even when mixing with milk and have had no issues taking two servings at a time. I look forward to trying the other flavors once I run out of this container.
For the people who detest the taste of whey
September 26, 2014
In my opinion, all the leading whey protein brands give more or less the same performance. This one is no exception. Combined with proper workout and diet, it helps gain the muscle mass quickly.
Where this brand really stands out is the taste. I find the taste and smell of the whey protein very unflattering. I have had problems keeping the concoction down in the past. This brand however, has really good taste keeping in mind that it's a protein powder, not a milkshake mix. The smell can be alleviated by adding some vanilla ice cream or such. This is a must try brand if you have trouble with whey taste.

60g in 2 scoops, its 30g a scoop and 200 cal a scoop. It's good for my purpose and decent prices. I prefer the Chocolate flavor as the Cookies N Cream one has too much going on for me
Great! Like a Cookies and cream milk shake
July 1, 2017
Tasted great, I liked to make pretend milk shakes with lots of ice, milk and the protein powder. Thumbs up! Can't beat the price.
May 9, 2017
Product tastes good. Powdery soft and hard to mix unless I use my immersion blender. Then it mixes without any lumps.
March 17, 2017
So much better than I expected. This has a nice chocolate/peanut butter taste, without any bad aftertaste.
March 4, 2016
This is a pretty ok suppliment. It has a great taste and fills you up. The only downside is the chemicals. There are more than I thought, so it's doesn't seem like it's very good for you. But as far as it's purpose, it gets the job done.
Better than before
June 14, 2017
Mixes up good with minimal shakes,no grit,clumps or chunks and very little foam.Produces a thick shake with good strawberry flavor and no aftertaste.This protein has gotten better since it first came out,back then it was grainy and did clump a little but no longer is/does either.I would use again.
Good for the price
May 11, 2017
This is a great protein powder for the price- decent taste and easy to get down. My only complaint is that it takes slightly longer than most more expensive powders to dissolve into the milk or water, but it still dissolves and doesn't end up with clumps. I would recommend this to people who just need more protein in their diet and are not wanting to spend a lot of money. It isn't the best, but its definitely one of the best for its price range.
May 9, 2017
I liked this protein, for the price you likely won't find anything better. 30g of protein and 2.5g of creatine per scoop. I got the strawberry smoothie flavor and i found that i liked it better mixed with water than with milk, but that's just my preference. The flavor was excellent as was the texture, not too sweet and really smooth.
Post workout protein
August 23, 2016
This protein tastes very good, especially for a protein in this price range. It mixes fairly well in a shaker bottle, or a blender. Based on the protein to weight ratio, it seems to have a reasonable amount of protein versus fillers. The only negative is that this product gave me constipation and gas significantly more than other proteins that I've tried (BulkSupplements, MusclePharm, Optimum Nutrition, and Syn6). I am not completely sure if that was just me, or actually a product defect. I was taking a probiotic at the time, and this seemed to overpower it. If you don't mind some gas, this is a pretty good choice for the price.
I like this protein brand
March 24, 2015
I like this protein brand, but the chocolate has a better taste. As far as nutritional value goes they are the same. To be completely fair I've tried the strawberry flavor in other protein product brands and didn't like the way they tasted either. I drank it all anyway because to me the nutritional value is worth chugging something that might not twang your buds for flavor's sake. After all, this is not a milk shake. We drink it to supplement our lean muscle building diets. This brand has good value over all in my opinion, but if taste is important to you more than price, go with the chocolate. When I bought this, the strawberry was a little cheaper than the chocolate. If you like the way strawberry protein products taste, then you're golden.

If you drink this too fast you will be nauseous and gassy. Drink slowly and with water to avoid this, or get a different powder.

I am really not a fan of the cookies and cream. Tastes very plain. I'm still experimenting with the flavor
Great Taste only once in a while - Different protein formulations?
June 18, 2017
One thing I hate about them is that everytime I receive the product (be in amazon or elsewhere from a local store), the protein formulation is changed. This goes back and forth between two different versions of formulation - (1) very sweet (tastes like a lot of sugar than the claimed 2g sugar per serving) that takes a lot of time to dissolve in water, and the powder consists of very fine particles and (2) perfect taste (not very sweet), does't take long to dissolve in water, and the powder consists of relatively grainy particles The (2) is what I love and wish I received everytime.
It would really help if Six Star is consistent with their formulation techniques and give the same less sweet product (which is less sweet (2)) everytime.
Like Six Star Protien but not Cookies and Cream flavor
June 13, 2017
I like Six Star Protein, but I do not like the taste of the Cookies and Cream. I now mix it with half of the double chocolate protein which makes it taste better.
Tastes good, but... (TMI warning)
May 14, 2017
Tastes good, I take 2 scoops after my WOD. But I won't order it again because it gave me incredible gas. Much more so than other protein powders I've used. Maybe just no whey for me.
The cookies and cream is fantastic! The taste is really good
July 1, 2016
I have only purchased two different flavors of the Six Star protein powder; the triple chocolate and the cookies and cream.
The cookies and cream is fantastic! The taste is really good. The consistency when mixed is what you would expect. I have no complaints about the cookies and cream.
It is the exact opposite of the triple chocolate. The triple chocolate is pretty bad. The consistency when mixed is pretty gritty. I was pretty disappointed with it.
Of course it's not all about the taste. The nutritional value is really good for these products. I use them as a meal supplement once a day.
#ONE TIME ONLY!
November 17, 2014
I used whey protein about six years ago when I was experimenting with weight/muscle gain and it generally helps with water retention that does translate to some bulky muscle gain that you can even cut up or down. Now I'm actually comparing it to an all natural pea protein and it just doesn't hold up! My biggest complaints are that there's no peak nutritional value, which is a very big deal (the pea protein is twice as effective here) and also the taste is not as good as the brands I first tried. A smell just like flour make the taste almost unbearable but you can add a little salt to remedy that. And I'm not so sure I wouldn't get the same results just using a brownie mix instead. All in all I think I'll probably get the desired effects in my leg workouts, assuming its whey and not flour?!? But there are much better brands if you ask me...BF; MM. #ONE TIME ONLY!
Two Star Reviews:
August 3, 2017
In my opinion, the only good thing about this is the taste. Mixing the powder is a struggle, and I often find myself drinking chunks of clumped powder, even after 10 minutes of shaking. Also something that I have noticed is that the drink, when using milk, becomes very frothy and foamy. I have never experienced this with other protein supplements.
Fine product but deceptively expensive.
May 7, 2017
The product is fine. It mixes smooth and tastes fine (especially with almond milk). High protein, 30 g/serving and low sugar. Great. However, the price per oz is deceptive. When you take the lid off you will find the largest scoop you've ever seen. Twice as large as normal scoops. If you do a single scoop you get a total of 18 servings per container. If you double up, as they eagerly suggest, you get 9 (NINE!) servings in the entire container. I'm barely going to get 2 weeks out of this.
April 15, 2017
I've gotten other flavors before and this one tastes horrible. It's a weird taste that hits the back of the tongue. Do not recommend drinking it alone without something being added to it. Blehhhh
April 12, 2017
I am disappointed in this. The citrus flavor is overpowering for me.
Not altogether bad, but certainly the worst protein powder I've tasted
March 6, 2017
Not altogether bad, but certainly the worst protein powder I've tasted. Can't see how it tastes like "chocolate peanut butter". Now, I've only tried a few brands mind you, but this is the least appealing thus far.
May 10, 2017
This has decent micronutrients, but has very,very artificial sweetened after taste. It does not taste like cookies at all. Tastes like watered down milk. Might be ok mixed with food like to flavor a bland dish like oatmeal,but just drinking this stuff is a chore!! Definitely won't buy again!
Acted and tasted old
December 2, 2016
Normally love this and usually buy it from the local store, which was recently out of the chocolate. The contained I received from Amazon looked the same but was very different than what is purchased locally. Very little taste, very difficult to get dissolved, as well as left a very heavy film inside the glass. Reminds me more of the casein powder. I will not be purchasing it from Amazon in the future.
Why did they ruin a good thing? This new strawbarry is GOD AWFULL
January 26, 2016
So ive been using this protein 4 a few yrs now & now all of a sudden sixstar changed the flavor on the strawberry. It says " new & improved flavor". Nee, uesb improved, noooooooooo waaaaaaay! Why did they ruin a good thing? This new strawbarry is GOD AWFULL! The results of the protein r still VERY VERY GOOD. But it ise 2 taste soooo delicious. Now it taste like s***. Amazon please tell this company 2 bring back the origional srawberry! They fixed something that wasnt bromen. Now its broken. I used 2 always give a 5 star rating on this but now the nasty flavor loses 3 stars. But it still has the BEST results after use.TERRIBLE NEW FLAVOR.
Okay for beginners...that's about it.
April 24, 2015
If you're used to O-N or any of the higher-end brands this will taste terrible. It's clumpy and has an almost cinnamon-y taste to the triple chocolate. I bought this because its price/oz. was cheap for the protein content. I will finish this just to keep my protein intake up, but after this is done I'm going back to Optimum. Beginners might like this. It's affordable for sure. But if you're serious about what you put in your body and are very active, reconsider.
Deceptive Scoop Sizes
December 15, 2014
Tastes like any other chocolate whey I've had before, mixes great. I thought was priced well then got it and realized I had been swindled. I was in the market for a whey protein with high protein per serving, this one was nice and cheap with 30 grams per serving, (which is better than most, especially Muscle Milk (which isn't strictly a whey protein powder I know) ). Then I got it and found out the serving sizes are 49 grams! Figures there is 30 grams of protein, jeesh. The product description say scoops are 42, but if you look at a zoomed-in picture of the main photo you can see the 49. So I'm at fault a bit for not doing my research but not sure why the product description is giving false information, it must be a for a different product. Hence the two stars.

it did not taste good and it was salty
Not a value and too sweet
January 19, 2017
Not remotely a "good value". I like sweet stuff and this is way too sweet and doesn't even manage to hide the proteiny taste. The scoop size is literally half a cup meaning there are only 18 (30g protein) servings in the container or only 9 (60g protein) servings. I wish I could return the product but already opened it.
October 24, 2016
Just not that good, your better off spending a few extra bucks and getting a quality protein product such as dymatize or ON.
Super disappointed :(
July 11, 2016
I have used this for years, am dissapointed with new formula, taste is now horrible and has anyone else noticed they have dropped the creatine monohydrate? This was my one stop shop for post workout nutrition, but after my last shipment I am moving on to another brand. Good while it lasted.

Was not happy had way more calories carbs fat and sugars than the previous1 I had purchased which was super advanced somewhere along the way someone decided to add in a lot more fillers and JUNK, will not be buying this product anymore
March 18, 2017
The drink was very clumpy and flavor was off. Amazon gladly refunded without returning product. Why Amazon is great.
AVOID THIS CRAP! "NEW" formulation is horrible!
October 29, 2016
AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I have been using the triple chocolate for a while and liked it but got my first tub with a "NEW" sticker (code X0016MZ5K7) and I threw it away after 1 use. I think the new formula should be checked to see what the sawdust content is. Just horrible, horrible stuff. Six Star / Musletech has lost a customer for good.
the taste is terrible and the powder is super clumpy in a blender ...
August 5, 2016
Ever since they changed the formula about a month ago, the taste is terrible and the powder is super clumpy in a blender bottle. Didn't have either issue before and used to love the product, now I'm switching.
Strawberry is repulsive.
April 27, 2016
Strawberry flavor is repulsive.
July 3, 2015
The taste isn't too terrible but it doesn't mix well with water and a spoon! It's super clumpy which makes it almost unbearable to drink cause it's so nasty. I've been drinking various whey proteins mixed with water and a spoon for years and this is by far the worst I've encountered. If it wasn't so clumpy then it'd be fine. Maybe it'll be better in a blender but for me that takes too much time just for a quick protein shake. Would not recommend there are better options out there.
