    it's in the bulk food aisle at my HEB (grocery store in Houston, TX)

    I want to say it's 80% protein
    110 calories, 23 g protein per 1/3 cup serving

    thanks!

    holy cow, thanks!
    just put 1 chocolate, and 1 vanilla in my cart.
    now I just need to justify the large $100 purchase (it's better than 10 small $10 purchases, right?)
    well, i'll ruminate, but i'll probably pull the trigger

    this. $70 for 10 lbs of ON, and that's still a little expensive.

    dymatize goes for $3/lb sometimes. never tried it though.

    Got 5lbs generic from Costco *IN CANADA* for $23.99

    And our whey prices are typically $10 more expensive up here.

    Good luck getting in on those deals, though :rofl:

    They last for what seems like 15 minutes
