    Answer: It's an automotive analogy. (I guess you're not a gearhead...LOL) Back in the day during the reign of muscle cars, the big block V8s ruled the road. Ford 429s and 460s, Mopar 383s and 440s (and of course the 426 hemi), and Chevy 427s and 454s. Muscle cars...big blocks...you get the picture.

    As for the chocamine: The original version contained the patented version of cocoa extract; Chocamine, which is standardized to 12% theobromine. Availability became unreliable plus the price went up every time we ordered it, so we had to seek alternatives. Standard cocao extract is standardized to 10% theobromine, so we made up the difference with pure theobromine - in fact we added a little more than that - so it's actually a little more potent than the original. All other main constituents are pretty much the same in either extract.

    Methyl xanthine caffeine vs. "regular" caffeine: It's the same caffeine. No change in the capsule, only how it's written on the label. Our attorney now reviews all of our labels for DSHEA compliance, and use of the most common name is preferred.

    240-Count DRIVE: On it's way. We call it "OVERDRIVE". (Another automotive analogy...LOL)

    Hope that clears everything up.

    Cheers -

  16. Question: someone in another thread mentioned that he doesn't get the "alpha male" feeling from the Big Block RPM as he did the previous version of RPM. Any reason as to why this may be so? I'm interested in trying RPM in the next few months, which is why I'm asking. Thanks.

    RPM and and RPM Big Block are the exact same formula, only the size of the bottle is different.

    The only possibilities that immediately come to mind are:
    - Taken with food (it works better on an empty stomach)
    - Taken at same dose for an extended time w/o a break. If so, bump the dose, or take some time off.

    That's what I was referring to in the other post, old formula vs new. It seems like the actual changes are really small, but I'm not getting the intense focus and aggressiveness that I got from the old version, still decent energy just different (always taken on an empty stomach). The price for the large bottle is great and I completely agknowledge this could be an individual thing. Anyone who's tried old formula owes it to themselves to give the new a shot. I'm just trying to be honest about my experience. This is coming from someone who loves Drive, Neovar, and OG RPM so to say I like appnuts products is an understatement. I'll try 6 caps and possibly quit stim use for a while and try again.

    I respect what you have to say. Try shooting it capless though, honestly it may help. Glad to know you enjoy them all though! I myself do as well

    Regular standardized caffeine is not as potent an extract of caffeine as methyl xanthine anhydrous caffeine. You will get a better thermogenic effect from the latter, as it is the driest and purest form of caffeine.
