I need to preface my review by stating that flavor was the sole factor in deeming this product as the worst whey protein I have ever purchased. Nutritionally, Dynamize brand is great and offers a solid amino acid profile and protein quality. However, the Cinnamon Bun flavor tastes nothing like a cinnamon roll, or anything remotely close to one. The flavor tastes like old milk with a dash of cinnamon. Unless that description appeals to you, I would steer clear of this flavor.
I was introduced to Gaspari products by a fellow Intermittent Faster, Dr. Sara Solomon. She gave sound advice and evidence behind the need to use BCAA's while fasting and while doing my fasted workouts, especially. I am in LOVE with the Lemon Ice flavor, its incredible to sip on during the Summer months! Blend it in the Magic Bullet with a little bit of ice, and get ready for deliciousness! Also, for a real flavor kick, mix it with a little bit of SuperDrive in Strawberry Kiwi.
First off, the taste of the product was actually pretty good. I thought as far as mixing it, it blended well and wasn't gritty like others I have tried. Overall, I would rank the product as fairly solid. Good focus and solid pumps. Not too jittery and definitely something I would try again. I look forward to the new products regularly becoming available, and VORTEX definitely held its own with anything else out here.
I purchased and began using it about over a week ago. I have lost weight since taking it, about 3 pounds or so, but it has also been with a high protein diet and exercise four days out of the week. It does give me energy, I take it twice in the morning and once in the afternoon. The energy is stable and doesn't give me the jitters and I don't crash later. When I take this product in the afternoon I use it for a pre-workout and I really enjoy it, I think it does better than Cellucor's C4 haha.... Go to Supplement Review
This product may taste good, but in my opinion the most important thing in a protein is its ability to be mixed easily. Hand shaking, low speed blender, high speed ninja, it doesnt matter with this. It just doesnt mix easily. I tried protein first, milk first, using water. Seriously nothing matters. I cant wait to run out and go back to gold standard. Oh and i have tried both milk chocoate and the peanut butter chocolate.
I liked this product a lot. Noticed improvements in almost every lift (especially bench) and a increase in size, most notably in my traps and triceps. I will defenitely purchase this product again and would recommend it to a friend.
Taste 9/10 - Starts off pretty good but it seemed to get better over the course of time as I got more used to it. By the end of the month I liked the taste very much. Mixability 9/10 - Basically no changes here from my initial review. "no major problems and was pretty quick in my blender bottle" You do have to give it a few shakes but it mixes quite nicely after that. Focus 10/10 - By far the best part of Dagger for me. Was focused during the workout and it extended after the workout... Go to Supplement Review
