I was wondering about insulin response in regard to sweet taste vs. carbs vs. protein. Is the insulin response the same for all three, or does it differ in some way?

Both protein and glucose trigger an insulin response, however, protein also triggeers glucagon, which lowers insulin, so glucose winds up having a larger response.
The only macronutrient that does not cause an insulin response is fat.
