Cellucor COR-Performance Whey comes in many flavors: Cinnamon Swirl, Cookies N' Cream, COR-Fetti Cake Batter, Mint Chocolate Chip, Molten Chocolate, Peanut Butter Marshmallow, Red Velvet Cake Batter, Strawberry Milkshake, S'Mores, Whipped Vanilla, etc. 

All flavors have very similar macronutrient content - for example, Molten Chocolate flavor has around 71g of protein, 9g of carbohydrates, 4g of fat, and 5g of fibers per 100g of powder.

Like many other similar supplements, this whey also comes with several allergens warnings (soy, nuts, etc.), but all flavors except Cookies 'n' Cream and COR-Fetti flavors are gluten-free - if you have a gluten intolerance or anything similar, consider this whey protein, just be sure to choose the right flavor. Again, note that some sites claim that all flavors are gluten-free, but according to the official Cellucor web site (last time I checked), Cookies 'n' Cream and COR-Fetti flavors are NOT gluten-free!

Also, this whey protein contains relatively plenty of carbs, but it is very easy on the stomach, even for people who have lactose and other digestive issues due to added enzymes.

Cellucor COR-Performance Whey comes in 2 and 4 pounds containers and 4 servings (140g) packets. If you want to try this whey protein, 4 servings package is highly recommended and if you like it, 4 pounds container is a better option since it is cheaper per gram of powder than 2 pounds container.

Powder mixes easily in the shaker, with very little foam - after shaking, wait 5-10 seconds for the foam to settle down (if you really don't like the foam) and drink it. If you add dextrose (or any other similar fast carb) to your Post Workout Meal (PWM) shake, most of the flavors taste as delicacies :) - personally, I stick to chocolate flavors :)

Note: if you prepare your PWM shake at home, be sure to put the dry powder into the dry shaker and after workout, add water just before consuming the shake. Don't ever put powder into the wet shaker or anything similar, or you will have plenty of lumps when making the shake later. This is important for all similar powders, not just to Cellucor whey protein.

COR-Performance Whey is a great whey supplement for PWM shakes. It may be good for breakfasts and daily snacks, but only if it is slowed by other foods like low fat or cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, fruits, peanut butter, and similar.

Price - price is acceptable and when found on sale (for example, 3 for price of 2 and similar), highly recommended. Protein content could be better (25g of protein per cca 35-36g of powder), but the taste is great and taste requires flavors and sweeteners.
