Do they work as good as mixing your own protein powder in a shake?? I would love to be able to use store bought ones sometimes to save time. thanks

Some of them are ok, it depends what you want though, for example mine has zero carbs in it and others have high carbs.. As with anything, read the label. They don't do you any harm if they're a good label

As everyone has stated read the label. Number 1 rule is to read the label. But if I were to recommend something it'd to buy a protein powder you like and works for you, and get a shaker cup. Keep the protein in your gym bag or car for.easy access and just add some water. This is way faster than stopping at the store and may save you money in the end

As with any protein shakes you should really read the label. Some of them are good, some of them not so good. The most popular pre mixed is probably muscle milk which I stay away from at all costs. It has so much saturated fat in it it's crazy. My recommendations: if you want just whey protein go for 100% gold standard by Optimum Nutrition if you want something more like a meal replacement so with Syntha-6 by BSN! Hope this helps!
