This product contains no frills, no exotic ingredients, which explains how they kept the price down. It's an excellent value. Also, the macros are good: 75g carbs and 40g protein per serving. Most other brands have 4-5 times as much carbs as they do protein. But the best thing about this product is that most of its carbs are complex (from oats and quinoa), so they won't spike your blood sugar. This is important if you plan on drinking it before bed or anytime that isn't near a workout. I also like how it doesn't contain tons of vitamins and minerals. If you're bulking up, you're already eating a lot of food in addition to protein shakes. So there's no need for a shake to contain 100% of your vitamin and mineral needs. Especially when some vitamins and minerals can be bad for you at high doses. My only complaints are as follows: First, the texture of this shake is kind of greasy, oily, and bubbly. I wonder if that's because there aren't any gums listed in the ingredients, like there is with most other brands. Gums help improve consistency and texture. Secondly, I wish this product had some casein or egg protein to smooth out protein absorption throughout the day. Right now it only contains whey protein, which is fast-digesting. And finally, I would prefer not having any Acesulfame K, because from what I've read, it appears to be very controversial safety-wise. In all fairness though, tons of products contain that stuff. I'm not sure why they can't use Stevia instead, or better yet, no sweeteners at all. Wouldn't cocoa or vanilla bean be sufficient to provide good flavor? Maybe some cinnamon or nutmeg too? Why does everything we buy need to be sweet? But, all in all, you can't beat the bang for the buck that this product offers.

I got four pounds from the trader section and loved this gainer so I bought a bag myself. Mixes good with no stomach issues later.

so for the price per pound per serving you can't go wrong. a lot of protein for not a lot of cash. However, fairly sugary, not the greatest of carbs. I put on about 7 pounds with this in my corner. taste is ok but nothing to special. for the price it aint bad.

I was lucky enough to get the opp to log this mass gainer aka weight gainer and this is the link. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=160269381 This is hands down the best gainer out there because the ingredient profile is what really put's this supplement in a class by itself. It only has 6 ingredients and it is not loaded with useless calories and the ingredients help you put on quality weight and this is probably the only gainer that you can actually cook and bake quality protein meals. The van flavor is sweet, delicious, and it is very versatile if you wanted to add other ingredients to it. If you are looking for a QUALITY sup to help boost your wt I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE!!!!!
