    I've always wanted to check these guys out so I decided to share. I ordered a morning mix which is
    Code:
    Custom Mix
    + FORMULA
     	Egg White Protein 	40%
     	Whey Protein Concentrate  	60%
    + Chocolate - FREE/lb
    + Sucralose (Splenda) - FREE/lb
    + **Plain** - FREE/lb
    + Plastic Jug w/ Free Scoop - FREE.6/lb
    

    It has a creamy taste and a very slight hint of chocolate flavor but nothing like my ON 100% whey shakes. The taste is not bad but not great either. Next time I might go with the premium flavor instead and drop the jug.


    This is my pre-bed shake

    Code:
    Custom Mix
    + FORMULA
     	Egg White Protein 	20%
     	Milk Protein Isolate 	50%
     	Whey Protein Concentrate  	30%
    + Strawberry - FREE/lb
    + Sucralose (Splenda) - FREE/lb
    + **Plain** - FREE/lb
    + Plastic Jug w/ Free Scoop - FREE.6/lb
    

    can't even taste the strawberry. There may be a mild hint of the flavor somewhere but i don't really notice it much. It has more of a milk flavor then anything would probably should not be a surprise.


    Overall the product seems fine but the regular flavor systems are lame. Also my order shipped same day and the customer service people are very responsive.

    I get a little confused on how to make the mixes.
    I recently ordered 5lbs of waxy maize from them.
    Considering ordering more as well as bulk leucine.

    i've ordered from there a few times, always liked their stuff. The basic (free) flavours suck ass. but the flavours you have to pay for are better.

    just wondering why you'd have so much whey (30 + ??) in your pre-bed shake. wouldn't you want more slow diegsting egg and casein?

    I ordered True Protein, wasn't too bad. Banana flavor was pretty good.

    milk protein isolate is something like 80% casein and 20%whey. After l looking at things I probably should have done like 20-10% whey.

    Drinks that are heavy in casein have this weird texture to it that I don't like so I always mix other things in.

    ahh, I thought it would be more like a 50-50 mix. thanks for clearing it up.

    i had an almost all casein mix and wasn't too keen on it. but it was only for when I didn't have a chance to have some kind of meat before bed, so for the once in a while I took it, I could live with it.

    I know what you mean, man... it kinda reminds me of drinking tapioca pudding minus the tapioca bits. A little on the thick side, I should throw some whey in too and see if that gets rid of it. Thanks!
