    Controlled Lab's Purple Wraath EAA/BCAA (2.1 lbs) has gone up a bit since I bought it last ($50.99 @ BN).

    Anything better/cheaper I could go with?

    Xtend, maybe? Not sure if that's cheaper though...

    True Protein, then custom mix.

    But that's protein, no? I was just wanting the BCAA powder, and preferably flavored.

    I didn't know that, thanks. :bigthumb:


    I went ahead and ordered some of the Ice because it's about the same price as the Purple Wraath, but you get about twice the servings.

    The reviews for the grape flavor were pretty good, so I guess we'll see.

    I tried this last night and I can't stress this enough:
    DO NOT BUY THIS.


    One of the worst aftertastes in any product I've ever had. I can usually broly up and drink anything, but not this.

    Really? I thought it was alright.

    I think they've changed the flavoring around a bit since I've last tried it, so who knows now.

    The watermelon xtend tastes like a jolly rancher. I'm told Grape was redone and is better now. Not sure if it's cheaper though ... I've learned that anything with the word acid in the name isn't going to taste good. ;)

    I might just get the Xtend, then. Thanks. :bigthumb:


    Anyone tried the new Xtend Grape? I'd rather get that over the watermelon if the flavor is good.

    Xtend has the best flavoring system of any BCAA products. Apple is just unreal, IMO. The orange is more of a tangish/creamsicle type orange. I use 8 scoops of apple with 2 scoops of primal eaa, yum.

    What about the lemon and grape?


    Nutraplanet is having a sale where you get 2 containers (mix and match between lemon, grape, and watermelon it looks like...) and a free orange for about $75.

    I was going to try Green Apple, but it looks like your choices are limited to variations of Watermelon, Lemon and Grape with the sale Nutraplanet is having.

    Total thread jack:

    I see that Primal N20 has a berry flavor. 1Fast you seem to have an inside line on some of this stuff, who has it and is it any good?? I'm almost out ...

    Berry is better than lemon for sure. The flavors of N20 don't matter to me. I drink it 20-30 min before going to workout. I just put about 6oz of warm water in a cup and slam it. So flavor for something like that, doesn't matter.
