Plant Fusion protein powder

Hello everyone. I've been CrossFitting since the beginning of December and I'm totally hooked! I am just starting my Paleo journey and I'm wondering if anyone has heard of or tried Plant Fusion protein powder? Can those of you with more knowledge in the protein powder department take a look at the nutrition label tell me what you think? http://www.plantfusion.us/home.htm

It is some plant based proteins supplemented with BCAA. How much is it?

It is a pea / brown rice / artichoke blend. I'm guessing it is very expensive.

I wouldn't buy it or drink it but I'm sure it is fine.

So is that good or bad? $25 for 1 pound.

Why wouldn't you drink it? What would you recommend instead?

I see no reason for protein drinks in general. I have experimented with a ton and experimented with the drinks timing. I don't get any benefit from them.

I do just fine with food.

In addition, I am not a fan of pea protein or brown rice protein and to be honest I didn't even know there was such a thing as "artichoke protein powder."

This seems like a highly processed food product to me. I'd just stick with food.
