    Whats up.

    I've been runnin low on my 10lb bag of ON choc, and yesterday i was at Costco helping my mom get some groceries for her deli. I came upon their whey protein. I forget what its called, but it was a 6lb tub for only $19.99

    has anyone tried it? comments? it's a bit cheaper than the ON, but i wonder how it tastes and if its decent quality.

    I beleive the one you are referring to is the Pro-Rated Protein right, which comes in Bavarian Chocoloate and Alpine Vanilla flavors. I've been using the chocolate flavored one for a while now, tried the vanilla one once, but did not like it. Alone with water, it's not horrible. However, I usually mix it with oats (sometimes cheerios) and peanut butter and it tastes really good.

    That is insanity.
    The best sale I've seen was $25 each.
    Is this sale still on? :big grin:

    The guy said the sale was for this month only. :dunno:
    He screwed up anyway, it was buy one on sale for $25 and get the 2nd for $15. Instead he discounted both and gave them both for $15.

    edit: regular price = $30.79

    From personal experience Cosco Whey is disgusting, especially the Chocolate. If you do get it get the Vanilla it does not taste as bad. Also they don't mix good at all, I always had a shitload of clumps in my shakes.

    I have clumps in my shakes regardless of the brand of whey unless I use a blender in which case I have never had clumps regardless of brand of whey.

    Now plain unflavored whey is the only one I feel tastes disgusting.

    No whey!
    I did have some Advant Edge High Performance whey when I started working out, it made me give a :hs: + :ugh: = :hsugh: face every time I tasted it. :(
    I'll spend a little more to get away from that taste, but am willing to try other flavors and wheys.

    thats what i use. but i thought the biggest they had was 5lbs for ~23$. is it in a bag? I've been through a couple of buckets of that stuff and I like it. I use a mixer cup and the taste isnt bad at all

    their pricing is so fucking weird. like on the shelf the product is always 40 dollars more. and when you get rang up its way cheaper.
