    Did you read my post????? lolol

    I bought these and have been using these for a week. They taste incredible.

    HOWEVER, assessing the ingredients, this stuff appears to be nutritionally INFERIOR as it has Hydrolyzed Protein (COLLAGEN!!!) as it's #2 ingredient. What a shame as we know this stuff is useless! Sure, whey protein isolate is listed AFTER that but obviously due to the sequence of ingredients listed, COLLAGEN is the majority of the content.

    I am NOT here to bash to troll, but MP would be wise to reformulate ASAP in an effort to actually compete with the traditional protein powders that supply a cheaper yet SUPERIOR form of protein (pure whey isolate, etc)

    10/10 on taste though.

    Yes, MusclePharm has just started making MuscleGel samples available - if you go to their website, you can request one by clicking on the MuscleGel Shot: Click here To Get Your Free Sample link and entering in your name, email, and mailing address details.

    Be aware that with the website changes - new website up for a little while now - this option may not be available anymore, but you can always email Drew and ask if they will do it.

    Muscle Pharm: Please comment on the inferior protein issue

    What makes you say hydrolyzed collagen is useless? It has a pretty solid amino acid profile, high bioavailability, and various benefits to your body outside of muscle building. The hydrolyzed collagen also always us to create a product with a consumable texture, excellent taste, and long shelf life. Now I won't disagree and say that there are not superior protein sources but unfortunately such sources just would not make a comparable product to the Musclegels. Musclegels are meant to be a convenient protein source to supplement your diet when other sources of protein are not available or practical. If I could always have a shaker cup full of Combat Powder with me than I would most definitely choose that over a Musclegel from a nutritional standpoint but unfortunately if I'm in between classes or at work the Musclegels are just way more convenient and practical. Conversely I would have no problem making Musclegels my only supplemental protein source because they do still supply your body with a complete protein source that is easily digestible. I'm glad to hear you enjoy the taste of the product and I hope this explanation eases your concern about the use of different protein sources in the Musclegels.

    Also sorry, I thought I posted this a while ago but for right now the future of Cinnamon Roll musclegels are kind of up in the air. If I hear any concrete yes or no I will be sure to post an update.

    Hi Pmiller - thank you for your reply.

    Again, I enjoy the taste and LACK of upset stomach I get from the muscle gel.

    I am concerned about the legitimacy of this statement:

    MuscleGel® provides 22 grams of fast absorbing high-quality Whey Isolate, which
    is the fastest-digesting protein you can buy and is a healthy, complete protein
    1. What is MuscleGel®?
    MuscleGel® is the Next Generation of Fitness Fuel. Utilizing the
    state-of-the-art patent-pending ProFusion™ Technology, MuscleGel® yields 22
    grams of the highest quality, highly-bio-available whey isolate protein, in a
    great-tasting, convenient on-the-go Gel-Packs.

    2. Why Whey Protein?
    Protein is essential for healthy weight loss. Protein also supports lean
    tissue, feeds strength, increases metabolism to fuel fat loss and provides the
    body with lean, clean energy. MuscleGel® utilizes the highest-quality whey
    isolate protein because it is among the highest in bio-availability, quality and
    the fastest-absorbing and complete sources of protein.
    Taken from: http://www.**********************/store/musclegel-shots.html

    According to the ingredients on MY musclegel packs, hydrolyzed collagen is THE main protein source thereby making it impossible to get 22 grams (all the protein listed on the macros) of whey isolate.

    Oh, ok Whacked. They need to update their package information on their website. You can check Musclepharm.com for the latest macro's before you purchase one of our products. Also if the retailer has different information than what is on the package you should be able to return them if you are unsatisfied.

    They taste insane, the textrure is incredible, and no gastric distress as well.

    Just concerned I am wasting my loot on inferior protein
