    i did send eric an email, so im waiting to hear back from him.. but i would like to share with you a suprising story. because we have been working on this stuff for so long there have been several promises made and today i was able to thankfully send one of our customers a container of vanilla. ( i so wanted to open it and taste test it lol). anyhow.. i took it to the shipping station and shipped across america.. from WA to NY.
    one 5 lber and it cost 24.95 before taxes.. i asked why so much? and its called inflation.. and bankruptcy.. gee thanx obama youve done enough .. now go home! so just be prepared to start paying super high shipping costs.. cause 17 might sound cheap here in a few months when the rescession returns.

    Honestly I don't think is it that expensive it 90 servings do like 50 some buck I think that's wha the protein was so affordable to counter balance the shipping so people could buy it

    we don't subsidized the shipping. It is what it is sadly... anyone paying 6.95 to ship a 5lb is having the company cover more than half....

    That burden doesn't concern the consumer. It is also why many choose other companies. Quite frankly people want the best for their money, and at your prices with shipping it isn't.

    No, I just think it's ridiculous business practice to claim how cheap you are but then charge $16 for shipping. It puts your item in the same price range as everyone else after that. Additionally 21g is a serving instead of the larger amounts which is how you skew to 90 servings more easily.

    You also can't answer a response maturely or professionally. I should've known with you inflation and bankruptcy comment that nothing intelligent would come out of this.

    really?? are you actually going to try and say that there hasnt been sever inflation in the last 3 yrs.. i dont know were you are from but were i live gas is 4.06 a gallon and if you think that doesnt effect inflation across the board you should stop listening to the anti-capitolist econ professor you adore. secondly if you payed more attention to the news you would know that the USPS is about to go through (if it hasnt already) bankruptcy.

    seriously.. we can talk about maturity the second you admit that your free to choose what ever protien youd like and no one will be mad at you either way. i think your more mad because i said u like walmart protien. would you like me to post a pic of the reciept from the shipping station
    showing my cost to send a 5 # of protien/./

    no i didnt think so because it would prove im not lieing. on top of that i tried to get you a discount and i suppose that equals shady buisness in your book too?
    heres a tip for you: study up on supply side economics, the answeres to your disdain for todays protien pricing lays somewere with in. once your on page you can feel free to hit me up for that discount and you can then make a better descision as to the value of LGs protien

    I asked for a discount.

    Never said anything about shady business. I said its misrepresenting a deal that isn't there.

    Don't insult someone by saying "study economics" or "watch the news", particularly when you don't know their educational levels. It's just insulting

    36 plus 12 is 48.

    The consumer wants to see an inflated price and cheap shipping so good lesson. Still companies cant do this forever and it will correct itself.

    Until then play the game to placate the masses just like politicians do... Lol

    On a final note:

    21*91=1911g protein per tub (Lipotropic) - $36.99 with 12.95 to ship (LG) (49.94 total - $0.26 cents per gram)
    24*74=1776g protein per tub (Optimum Whey) - $52.99 with $6.95 to ship (bb.com) (59.94 total - $0.033 cents per gram)
    24*70=1680g protein per tub (Dymatize Elite Whey) - $44.99 with 6.95 to ship (bb.com) (51.94 total - $0.031 cents per gram)


    10g of LG - 26 cents
    10g of Optimum - 33 cents
    10g of Dymatize - 31 cents

    You did me a HUGE favor though exposing how math is just not the strong suit of the average American. I will just adjust the shipping HELL I will just charge $49.94 and give you FREE shipping. lol Feeling better?

    So, I don't see a scam nor a bad price nor less protein.

    7% more protein per tub than Optimum
    12% more protein per tub than Dymatize

    I look and see a $16 shipping price which isn't what was intended. No clue where that came from but I will change it. Being a company owner what I communicate sometimes doesn't make it. Shipping was supposed to be $12.95 however there was clearly an error in translation.

    I was never insulting to the point of "Americans math skill" which is rude and a gross generalization.

    I am however in the top law school in the country and would consider myself intelligent. Rudeness and name calling was never necessary. I can do the math as well and understood the point. However, $16 shipping does appear to be shocking immediately upon review as most other companies hide the price in the product.

    I hasn't done the math first. It's one of those "shocks the conscience" instances that hits before logic kicks in.

    I do apologize if this became unprofessional, I let my cycle and stress get to me.

    If you seriously would ship to me I would take it. Id probably order an additional one as well.

    Well, you did me a favor truly. It was never supposed to be $16. I thought it was $9-12.

    I am also in law school, so I know the stresses, so no big deal.

    We always try to do the best for our customers and you are right $16 is shocking (didn't know it was $16). **** $12 is shocking, but the bottom line is that is what it costs these days. The model of the 5.95 flat just cant continue forever...

    Of course I will send you the protein. Just PM me your address and I will get some sent ASAP. This first run is sort of a "beta" run so excuse the label, but I use the protein and it tastes good to me! I hope you enjoy it.

    Here is the label going forward. Check it out and let me know if you guys have any suggestions. We found a few errors on the old protein.
