I drank it the way it is. For some reason, I like odd tasting stuff like that.

What brand did you get? I use milk for mine. Water just isn't that good IMO. I haven't had the chocolate but I have had the strawberry (GNC "100% Whey Protein") and it'* not too bad. If you don't like the taste try adding some other ingredients. I haven't been to the gym in a while...I used to drink that all the time. I got the cheap little shaker to help mix it up well.

Hmmm, Walmart brand...must be why. Though water isn't the best choice too. The GNC stuff is worth it if you use it a lot. But you can find the GNC whey protein new on eBay for $25. Try a multivitamin too. And some L-Glutamine.
