I have taken this several times in the past but i just finished my 4 pack of RTD's i bought. I was in a protein-pickle here at work so i went to the protein section and the only decent looking one i could find was this.

I used this as a meal replacement and i will say it works quite nicely for that. Would i use it post workout? No. It has a protein blend containing Milk protein concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, And Whey Isolate. When it comes to post workout, i like either a complete Isolate or Hydrolsates.
But i really like the 42 gram serving of protein you get from this as my body can break down about 40 grams every couple hours so it's just barely over my mark. Its also low in sugars and moderate in carbs.
I just came off a CKD not too long ago and i would not have touched this on a no/low carb day but i am on a low carb/high protein diet now and it fits in just right with my diet plan for an earlier-in-the-day meal replacement. I think it would be a great Pre Workout shake for any of you youngsters who are playing it safe and keeping away from pre workout supplements until the age of 18. Would still recommend a better protein blend or isolate for post workout. The amino levels in this are fair/decent.
The taste- Well, it wasn't the worst tasting protein i have taken, thats for sure. But it wasnt the greatest. It is definately tollerable and it is the first protein shake where i can honestly say i liked the vanilla better than the chocoalte (It is labled French Vanilla). So all in all, it's really not that bad of a protein but it is wayyy over hyped. Not to mention over priced. I paid close to 13 dollars with tax for 4 RTDs which is what brought the value and overall ratings for this down. I may purchase this again depending on my wallet and needs.

I heard that there was a great amount of arsenic, mercury, and lead in this product. Is this true?

I have been using the premixed shakes and love how convenient they are. They pack 40+ grams of protein and are a great meal replacement. I just bought a 4 pack at GNC on sale for 4 bucks and some change. I got several packs. I do think the quality is good and for convenience, it's great. I can chug one before a workout and be ready to go and still maintain my diet. The taste is good, bloating and gas is minimal and the quality seems good.
I will definitely keep these on hand for convenience sake!!

    This review will also pertain to the Myoplex RTD's. The overall taste of the protein powder is decent, nothing special but not bad by any means. It is a bit more expensive than a standard whey protein but also has much more carbs and some more fat than say 100% Whey. The added carbs and fat may add a bit to the taste but this also makes it an ok option for people looking for an easy meal replacement shake. The RTD's that drink are 14 oz and 25g of protein with 23g of carbs. It only comes in around 210 calories so it might be too light for a full meal replacement but worth adding for the convenience. The RTD is also not as tasty as other RTD's such as Muslce Milk or Syntha 6, however it is also the cheapest of the RTD's that I have found. Its protein comes from both milk and soy derivatives so there is a blend of proteins which help prolong anabolism but at only 25g of protein, its hard to determine how much protein of each source you are getting and you can utilize more of all of them I'm sure. All in all, it is a better (lower calorie) option than say Muscle Milk for those looking to lose weight, however the taste does not hold up to its competitors. The powder can be found pretty much anywhere and is relatively cheap so that is a definite plus. I personally would stick with ON for my regular protein needs but in a pinch, this is not a bad option for anyone other than those on a CKD diets where the carbs will hurt.

    I have been using this supplement for about 3 months now and im pretty impressed. Its not a MASS gainer for me at all but i do use it for a meal substitute every now and then and when i run out of other proteins and im on a tight budget. I like that it will keep me full until my next meal. I have used it as a post workout supplement before and it helped a little with recover but not much, but im used to taking the amp wheyabolic extreme 60 and i think that it recovers better than the e.a.s.

    taste- it taste great, i have chocolate and vanilla and can enjoy both.

    mix- it mixes really well, just a few flicks in a shaker cup and its all good.

    effectiveness- good if looking to replace a meal or to stop the hunger at night

    cost- prices aren't to high on this and for what you get its not a bad deal.

    First off I am going to explain my ratings, I rated this overall 6 because I don't believe in using any supplement containing non musclebuiling substances (candium, lead, and arsenic) I rated the effectiveness a 7 because I drank one of these after my workout and I felt as if I had lost fatigue and as if I was ready for another workout, but thats just me, the value being 10 is because I got a whole box to try out for free.
    So now I'm going to mention the flavor... I got a box of chocolate flavored Myoplex, it was very rich in chocolate flavor, very thick and it was very different, it tasted like pure chocolate and it was fairly easy to consume.
    Effectiveness, after drinking a whole box, containing over 12 of these shakes, I felt a little development in my arms, and as I mentioned before, it was relieving after a workout as it contains many amino acids and or proteins.
    The only thing I don't like about this supplement is that it contains the substances mentioned above, candium, arsenic and lead are not, let me repeat that, ARE NOT MUSCLEBUILDING SUPPLEMENTS!!!! and this also applies to Muscle Milk! Please do not waste your money on something that can potentially hurt you!

    They had an article about the different ingredients in these premade shakes like muscle milk and myoplex. I think they had flavors that were worse than others. I think the dark rich chocolate one was the worst. I used to drink these religiously, but it does get expensive after a while.

      Well one of the reasons I liked them both is I felt like I could replace a dessert with them,they were sooo tasty,specially muscle milk,Ever since we talked about it I havent bought any of them,I went with ON instead.Thats what everyone was telling me to get on here.

      This stuff worked pretty well for me. i usualy do one for breakfast and eat 4 meals a day with Isopure post workout. Doing this routine helps me keep lean. I personally like the taste of the powder and the rtd's. I recomend mixing in a blender with ice. Anyway this stuff starts my day off well. It gives me some energy and has a good balance of protein carbs and vitamins. For a meal replacement i'd definately reccomend this product.

      This is a good product. If you have never had an RTD Myoplex shake try one...they're good- maybe not quite as good as Muscle Milk or somethin, buyt theyre pretty darn good. I was over at my mother's house a couplle months ago (someone who has never stepped foot in a gym) and I left my Myoplex drink sitting on the counter and she tried a swig of it, and now she's hooked on em' cuz they taste so good. She isn't too thrilled that they cost $3.50, but she buys em now. My dad drink em too. I drink em. They're good, they have a nice rich smooth creamy texture and great taste, a little acquired, but nonetheless pleasing to the pallate. Sheesh, for a protein drink...they are delicious!!!

        This is just an all around average product. The only thing I can say it really helped with was recovery time. But that's how every protein should be. I tried the strawberry and it had an awful taste and I had to chug it as fast as I could to get it down. It's a good product to start out your first protein with but by means of wanting to add a lot of muscle and weight it's mediocre at most.
