[b][color=blue] Taste [/b][/color]
Salted Caramel - Salted Caramel is known to be a sweet, rich, and creamy caramel flavor with hints of sea salt. While I have only had one salted caramel flavor in the past (Universal) this one will be hard to judge because it is not a common flavor. My first taste test was 6oz Almond milk and 1 scoop of the Salted Caramel Whey. Right away the caramel is the dominant flavor with the aftertaste of the saltiness provided in the sea salt. If you ever have had a sea salt filled chocolate this is exactly what you are getting your hands on. Think about the creaminess and caramel you find in the center of a milky way but enhanced with added flavor. Rule 1 did a good job even though they label it "Lightly" Salted Caramel. Their flavoring is far from light. If you were a fan of Universal Salted Caramel this is a step up flavor wise and my clear cut winner between the two. Rule 1 continues to impress me with how strong and flavorful their protein powders are.

Rule 1 is light. While the powder is light it does not mix light such as Optimum Nutrition. It does provide a thicker blend then most regular whey powders. The added thickness of the blend and gums in the product make for a thicker protein shake, and creates great protein pudding/sludge. A big reason why I like this product is it tastes good and gives people some satisfaction of a thicker protein shake. I have tried a few flavors now and have had no issues in a blender bottle, magic bullet, or mixing into yogurt.
[b][color=blue] Formula [/b][/color]
Rule 1 offers a blend of WPI, WPC, and WPH. Some people may be turned away with the small addition of corn syrup solids in the formula. The amount is so minimal is should not matter. The Rule 1 Blend is so thick due to the added cellulose and xanthan gum added. Sweetened by Sucralose.
[b][color=blue] Cost [/b][/color]
Rule 1 Whey can be around 25$ for 2lbs. Which on the current market is very reasonable. Most protein powders are found around 10$/lb. If Rule 1 is on special you can also find them giving away 4-10 serving sample packs with their products. All in all it is cost effective for what you are buying.
