    I'm talking nutrional info and taste.

    I like that it's low in fat and sugars/carbs. Looking for something along the same lines, that blends/tastes similar too.

    The shit is just getting too damn expensive. $77-$80 for a 10lbs bag. :ugh:

    What are the nutrional specs on it?

    I'm looking for something along the lines of 23+ g per serving.

    Maybe the issue is that you're eating too much powder and not enough bird, fish, and cow.

    I don't have EAS at my Walmart, I have Body Fortress and Six Star to choose from ... they are both right at 25 grams of protein per scoop, 24 and 25 respectively I think. It's like $12 - $15 for 2 lbs ... the ON 10lb bag works out to be as cheap or cheaper in the long run. Even if it costs the same not having to go and buy a new container every week is worth it, no?? I'll be ordering a 10lbder ON or Cytosport next paycheck.

    Definately cheaper and I'm liking the specs too :cool:

    The only thing that throws me off is the unflavored bs... can't say I've ever had unflavored Whey. Anyone try this or other non-flavor protein before? Can you mix it with water and still taste aight?
