    I used to see stuff like 10lbs of ON for $40 (when normal prices were $60), and i once bought 5lb tubs of TwinLab whey for less than $15 i think, possibly $5 - I only bought 2 since i had like 20lbs stocked up, and now I'm almost done with it. That was only like a year ago too.

    I know milk and as a result, whey has gone up, but it seems there aren't any more "good" deals out there.

    ON for $70-80 for 10lbs? I think I rather pay $20 more for 4 tubs of heavenly goodness - Syntha 6 (bigger scoops I know). has anyone seen some killer deal out there in the past 3 months?

    Can you order two 5-lb tubs, or do you have to order the 10lb bag to get the deal?

    I would try myself, but I have to setup an account and everything just to see if it works.

    The overal problem is a global shortage of milk.

    High wheat/grain costs
    Costs more to feed cows
    Less cows
    Less milk
    Cost of milk goes up

    (and of course they use a buttload of milk to get the whey protein so that's why it costs $50 a tub)
