    Just got this email :ugh:

    To our valued customers,
    This is a special announcement to let you know that due to cost increases and supply issues with whey protein, all major manufacturers and suppliers will shortly be raising their prices on whey protein products. Unfortunately, our costs are going to go up dramatically and we will need to raise our prices somewhat in order to offset these additional costs. Again, this increase in whey protein pricing is industry wide and completely out of our hands.

    At BulkNutrition.com, we work hard to bring you the very best nutritional supplements at the lowest possible price. As a service to you, our valued customers, we are pledging to maintain the current whey protein product price levels until May 1. We recommend that you stock up now on your favorite protein products!

    Thank you for your continued support.

    There was a sign at Gold's saying it was all going up 8-10 dollars. I thought it was just Gold's trying to get more money. :hs:

    Save your money on the protein and buy food instead.

    If you break it down it's $0.42 a serving, at $68 for a 10lbs bag.

    Currently at like $50 a bag, it's $0.31 a serving.

    It's probably due to the rise in shipping cost which is driven up my the cost of oil.


    So yes, it is the Muslims fault our protein is going to start costing more....

    How much is everyone stocking up on?

    I just got a huge order of shit from prosource the other day, and one of my items included a 10lbs bag.

    I'm considering getting 1 or 2 more :o

    nearly all food is going to go up in price


    it is b/c of alternate fuel.... the usa is using 25% of it's corn for alt fuel experiments (ethanol). Corn is heavily used in animal feed (chicken, cows, etc) so now that corn will be going up b/c of supply/demand so will animal feed and so will the prices of eggs/chicken/beef, etc


    IT IS GOING TO FUCKING SUCK! Prices have gone up a little already if you havent noticed..

    which is why corn is a terrible source for ethanol.....sugar cane and sugar beets would be much better.....


    unfortunately the corn lobby is a powerful one....
