The experiment compares it to one drink. One that wasn't designed in any way to be post workout. This in turn makes the chocolate milk seem like it is a super potent choice for post workout. But the test doesn't show that it's 'one of the best'. All it does is show us that it is better than sugar water. And as I said:

So it should be pretty obvious that I understand chocolate milk is an easier and tastier alternative. But that ISN'T what we're talking about here. The point I'm hammering is that unlike what 01gt4.6 or the study claims, chocolate milk is not an optimum choice.
