    Sent from my SGH-T999 using Am.com
    Please do not quote me on this, but I THINK that is b/c they too produce other products with Soy. It doesn't contain soy, but in case of a rare fluke occurrence where the slightest soy got in there and gave someone an allergic reaction....well, you know what I mean.

    I was worried, thanks bud

    I'm stuck at work till tomorrow. I don't think my package delivered because of the storm
    I seem to have enjoyed it more than the other guy that tried the vanilla. To specify, I mixed 1 scoop of the vanilla with 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and filled the rest up with water. Tomorrow I will try it with plain old water and see, although 9 times out of 10 ill continue to drink it with the almond milk.

    That sounds amazing! Almond milk is SO good! I like it in my cereal too at times.

  4. I'm trying to order three tubs but my order won't take. The code was accepted but it won't process my CC. I've tried two different CC's but it's giving me the same error. Time is running out!

  5. Just received mine they don't have a plastic seal on the outside..anyone else?

  7. I got ten pounds of the cookie lovers as chocolate was sadly sold out at the time of the order.

    It definitely mixes thicker than most other shakes. I don't think the cookie lovers tastes particularly well but it isn't bad. For the price I was going to be satisfied unless it was absolutely disgusting and it's not....just wish I could have tried chocolate at this price!

  8. Anyone notice how ridiculously off the serving size of one scoop actually is compared to label claims?

    Are you talking about the weight in grams? I noticed that scooper is humongous and I couldn't figure out how there can be so many servings when each scoop looks as though it's just taken 1/4 of the jug lol.

    Yes, it says a "rounded" scoop is 38g. I put a flat scoop and dumped in 38g, and still had half a scoop left..lol

    Much appreciated Frank. Really annoying when companies don't get the whole scoop thing right, but at least we have you to fix their problems!

  15. I've noticed this is a problem across the board. I want to take a flat scoop and get exactly what the label says. End of story it should be just that easy. I've taken double servings a few times this week it seems by not measuring it. Thanks protein jerks!

  16. So 1 scoop whole is really roughly 40 g prot instead of the 25 as the label claims? Damn...been wasting prot for like a week, that ain't cool.

  17. Also if they can't get the scoop right how can we trust that the rest of the label is honest?

    NP. I weigh everything for this reason..lol That is a big discrepancy though. I mean if people are using a rounded scoop like they suggest on the container, they will go through the tub in about half the time.

    I mix all my protein in 1cup of pasteurized egg whites, so TBH I just want the xx amount from the powder.

  20. I have that same scale at home!!

  21. It may just be me, but this kind of thing pisses me off. Makes me want to contact them and bitch about how they are messing up my macros and my money. "Don't play with my money Smokey!!"

    Honestly, that is why I posted it. The discrepancy is quite big.

    It says there are 60 x 38g(2280g total) servings. At 60-62g servings, there is only 36-38 servings.

    How packed was the scoop that you weighed? Maybe shaking the tub in an attempt to "fluff it up" would help the scoop accuracy. I doubt it would make up the difference you're seeing though.

    No more packed than any other scoop of protein I've ever scooped. Heh.

    I just repeated it with chocolate after "fluffing" it and gently scooping and got 60g.

    I just used 2 scoops of MGN and weighed it to see what happened. 1 scoop is labeled at 29.7g and my scoop came out to 36 grams. I didn't do any "fluffing" or whatever tricks you guys might use. I just scooped it flat and poured it in.

    These next comparisons are just b/c I'm bored lol.

    MGN gives me 1.2x the labeled amounts per scoop based on this test.
    120 cal to 144 cal
    3g fat to 3.6g fat
    3g carbs to 3.6g carbs
    22g protein to 26.4g protein

    Ultimate Flurry gives me 1.6x the labeled amounts per scoop.
    170 cal to 272 cal
    5g fat to 8g fat
    6g carbs to 9.6g carbs
    25g protein to 40g protein

    That is a huge increase in calories and macros as far as Ultimate Flurry is concerned if you track them and are actually shooting for certain #'s. At least now I know that I need to weigh out my powder every time. Thanks Frank!!

    Seriously, you're gonna weigh out your protein every time now?. This isn't a stab at you or anything, but that's just anal as hell.

    It is pretty anal, but no denying the scoop discrepancy is pretty damn huge, especially when you factor in the fact that many people are going to take anywhere from 2-3 "servings" a day. You're looking at over 300 "extra" calories a day. Hardly an insignificant amount if someone is trying to cut or bulk.

  28. I always weigh protein for some reason..hah Think it is just force of habit. I just put my cup on the scale when I make a shake. It's really no extra effort. The cup is either going to be sitting on the counter or scale.

  29. Yeah I don't really see that adding a bunch of extra time even though I don't do it. I'm just glad you guys figured this one out. I usually take about 3 "servings" of protein powder a day and we are talking about an extra 2100 calories with this discrepancy in a week for me. That's a pretty huge amount to be figuring wrong. Especially knowing that I would eat "extra" thinking I was a bit low off my calories mark which makes it even more off.

    300 extra calories really isn't going to be that significant either way. Anyway if you've got 10 pounds of this stuff and are drinking it everyday I'm sure you'll adjust fine. In the grand scheme of things it is fairly insignificant. I weigh some stuff out, like pre-workouts I weigh out sometimes, but that is because of the strong stimulants included and if that's all messed up...Totally different story and outcome than if your protein powder is off by a few carbs or calories. Oh and I weigh all my food also, just not protein powder. I don't drink very much protein powder anyway. One-Two servings a day, but not everyday either. Usually only one serving to mix my creatine in post workout.


    Edited and such.
