    Well Im running out soon of the 12 tubs I stocked up on before prices went through the roof (bought em at 25 bucks appiece for 5 lbs )

    At this point Im switching to BSN Syntha 6 , its only 5 bucks more then O.N. for 5 lbs. So what flavors are good? Im going to order 10 tubs again, about a 7-8 month supply.

    They're all good, although I'm not a huge fan of the cookies and cream.

    Mochaccino is the shit, the strawberry is good, chocolate is good and havn't tried the vanilla.

    i have syntha 6 vanilla, it's ok, but i wouldn't get it again. strawberry's the shit. i really wanna try mochaccino - heard good things about it.

    syntha 6 has 200 calories per serving, and is a bigger scoop compared to on, keep that in mind. more protein per gram for ON i guess you can say, it also tells you that you'll run out of syntha faster.

    vanilla and choc are bomb but i heard mochaccino is the best hands down.. whatever way you go you'll be good to go. BSN's shit is expensive but it is the best tasting in my opinion.

    I remember getting a sample of that crap when it came out. Stuff is horrid. Everyone at the gym was talking about how bad it was.

    I haven't bought protein in about 8 months. 5lbs of ON 100% Whey was $26 last time I got it and going up to $28. Couldn't believe it when I went in and it's $49 at the local place now. Was able to find it for $32 online though. At least I'm not dropping the +$100 on protein and other lifting stuff like I was about a year ago.

    I just asked that of an employee at a local nutrition store today. Here's what he said. First off he said that they aren't selling much Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey anymore (it use to be the #1 seller) because of the price. ON has become the biggest protein manufacturer in the world (they also make GNC's branded protein). They now think because of this they think they can dictate prices. In addition to that the US has started exporting large quantities of protein to China which has also caused the prices to rise.

    Dietary cholesterol isn't linked with your cholesterol levels. It's mostly dependent on your liver's production.
