    Went into GNC:rolleyes: to purchase a 5lb of On whey protien they had on sale for 29.99. Found the tub and they had it priced to 49.99, I asked the guy behind the counter about it and he told me they(O.N.) are in the middle of a lawsuit for lying about their ingredients? Anyone heard of this?


    The guy told me not to buy it and tried steering me towards some other stuff at 2x the price:squint:

    i guess I will just order online instead:o

    I usually don't, but at 29.99, they were cheaper than buying online.


    are their employees on commision or something?

    This is why we buy several items and pay a shipping fee once, and no tax.

    I spend $200 every order, I stock up.

    ON gets their whey from untrustworthy mom and pop stores in china where they're cooked in lead tubs and exposed to tons of harmful substances. it is quite possibly the lowest quality whey you can buy.

    i was told this by a guy who designed supplements for champion nutrition for 9+ years. his partner came up with muscle milk but was robbed the patent by cytosport
