    i think i'm going to make my own blend for my next protein order, but my question is about the flavoring options.

    I want to try to keep the costs down, and getting the BSL flavoring really drives the cost up pretty quick. On the other hand, i've heard their standard flavors suck. I just want to get chocolate. Anyone have any feedback?

    I ordered twice from them. The first I got a custom blend of 50% WPI, 25% Dextrose, and 25% Maltodextrin with chocolate BSL flavoring. It tasted exactly like a milkshake. The second time, however, I just ordered WPC with the same flavoring. It tasted just like ON Whey.

    I bought their unflavored whey concentrate once and I don't remember it being instantized though. Their Canadian store isn't even located in Canada and I had to pay some fucking duty fees because they opened it.

    I do and my buddy is a "dealer" so I'll post his code up and you get 5% off your order.

    The chocolate is decent but then again I am mixing it with a ton of milk and peanut butter.

    I think they finally took care of that and now you don't have to pay the import fees. Give them a call/email and ask.

    That code will give you a 5% discount off your order and my buddy Kent gets a kickback (small but the kid is broke so it helps).

    There are no fees for duty for whey supplements apart from the fact that I have to pay taxes (which is 15% in Quebec, fuck that, if I buy from a canadian website I only have to pay a 7% tax) and a fee when they open the package to see if it's really what it should be. I don't remember how much it is, 20$ I think.

    When did you order from them last? I think I saw something on their website stating that canadien customers would no longer have to deal with all those extra fees.

    Yeah, sndcanada and supplementscanada are the best but I wanted to see if I could get a milk protein powder or casein powder somewhere. There are some sustained-release protein blends on those webiste but they're costy, full of sugar or have a questionable casein content (ie:syntrax matrix 5.0)

    i think i'm going to get 40% WPC, 50% MPI, 10% MC

    i would just get Syntrax Matrix but the idea of having a proprietary blend for a protein is absurd. One can only assume based on their unwillingness to reveal the contents, and the selling price, that it's almost all WPC.

    Thanks for the discount code BTW

    i've ordered from them twice before. did the 50 pounds wpc + 4 flavor pack deal. even with shipping factored in, the price is really hard to beat elsewhere. i had a hard time mixing the chocolate with a spoon. the other flavors mixed fine though

    It's not too bad, Bannana was pretty tasty. The Berry flavor was really bad. Surprisingly the normal flavors taste better than the Black Star Labs flavoring.
