    But its all about the bulks for me.... the more staple supplements I purchase in bulk the more I can take advantage of great deals on ground breaking specialized products... Shoot of don't like the taste of your bulks cap em, chug em, parachute them, whatever...this is body building/weight lifting not jazzercize...
    Just curious, but when did quality come into play? I was commenting on the importance of flavoring, not a product's caliber. Of course bulk supplementation is the more economical route. But, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your taste buds.

    Also, don't patronize me with the jazzercize comment... There's nothing effeminate about wanting a more palatable supplement.

    Very Honest question.

    Do people expect the Unflavored to taste good?

If not, will not be purchasing again, especially considering the price.
    There are reports on our forum of bad taste along good taste. You can find both opinions on this forum of good, bad, and ok taste.

    I'm a little confused why some think the Unflavored are suppose to taste good....

    With all due respect, according to the product's write-up:

    We made it VERY clear to our R & D team – USPlabs Modern BCAA™ MUST be developed under these strict rules:

    * BCAA Ratio formulation with mTOR activation in mind
    * Ultra-Micronized
    * Must Mix Clean
    * No Artificial Colors
    * No Artificial Flavors
    * GREAT taste
    * No L-Glutamine

  6. I haven't tried the unflavored kind yet, I'm speaking only of the grape and the white blue raspberry.

    I thought it was common knowledge in the market place that unflavored means it is not flavored so it will carry the natural flavor of the compounds.

    Am I off base here?

  9. Haven't tried my Modern BCAA's just yet finishing up my LG's BC+EAAs and my Power Shock. But i'm with most guys that we aren't in it for the flavoring, if it works it works. We all have chugged nasty tasting supplements cause they work. I remember LG's original Anadraulic State that flavoring wasn't the best, but it worked so i used it. So just put on your big boy panties and chug it.

    as soon as everyone started complaining about a quality product which took a backseat to taste, imo quality trumps taste any day, that JUST MY OPINION, but should be the case in the world of bbing and powerlifting, I want to get every last extra muscle fiber, every last rep possible, and shouldn't have to worry that I'm putting an additive or flavor system ahead of quality that can get me those results

    Once again not taking any personal jabs at you just trying to lighten up the subject with some humor, all the same this isn't a sport for pussies, it takes insurmountable hard work and dedication to get quality results and imo it sounds preeeetty weeeenie to complain about flavor of a substance like bcaa's which have been known to traditionally just not taste good at all especially when a company like usplabs, a tried and tested company that delivers innovative quality supps day in and day out, has given us their rendition of a quality staple product.

    Not once during the entirety of this thread was I complaining. I was simply giving my personal opinion regarding the taste, and only the taste. If I didn't believe in the functionality of MBCAA's, or USPlabs, I wouldn't purchase the said product.

    Really though, I am not some uninformed newjack. I know what it takes to be successful in bodybuilding, and life in general. Also, like supplementation flavoring, opinions are completely subjective. My opinion is just as valid as yours, and vice versa.

  12. your "intelligent" posts make me lol hoopem, are you a nerd? srs question.

    Nope, not at all. As I stated previously, I find the unflavored MBCAA's bearable. I was just alluding to where a user might have gotten the wrong impression concerning the product's taste.

    I actually have half a 500g tub of l-leucine in my cupboard.... Must mean something happened to the other half

    Try bulk aakg, aee, cee.... Naaaaasty.... That's whee the capping and parachuting comes into play.

  15. For a BCAA supplement I think they taste great. Even better than Extend or BC+EAA.

  16. You also have to consider the fact that the mbcaas are naturally flavored. That was the selling point for me over xtend. I don't want all the sucralose and dyes.

    I agree.. My MBCAA's haven't arrived yet, so I can't comment on the taste but this stuff not containing any artificial sweeteners, or dyes attracts me.
    Staying healthy is more important than getting big is to me. Just a little bit

    It shouldnt be called Yellow Gold more like Yellow Death lol. I thought everyone was being pussays when they complained about it but the 1st time I took it it got stuck in my throat and I couldnt drink enough water to get it down. So what did my body do? I threw up and guess what I still tasted that nasty stuff. Oh well I think I will open that tub up again soon haha.

  19. Ever try bulk super cissus in water...now thats gross lol, and yes the bulk leucine was like drinking chalk lol

    Uh guise, read the label. Contains Sucralose...

  22. Frankly I think the flavor, considering that they are natural for both of the two flavored ones I have, are quite good. Xtend tasted fine but I got sick of the overly artificial flavor way before I finished my big tubs of it. MBCAA is not perfect but it is better than almost anything else I have tried with the exception of LG BC+EAA in the kiwi-straw flavor.

    The unflavored does not taste good at all, who freaking cares, it works and mixes just fine into a shake.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

  23. I'm actually quite surprised by this. My package just arrive this morning, opened the grape, like the taste, though it was a little mild maybe, but refreshing in 500ml of water. Mixed clear in that I could see though it, nothing floating. Slight tint to the water.

    Sure the flavours arn't has heavy as xtend but for me that works to my favour. Less crap added but also I find I get sick of xtend flavours quick so this is a nice mid point.

    If you think it tastes bad, make sure your water doesn't taste like ass first. Maybe I'm lucky that in ireland where I live, water is super clean out of the tap.

    I've had BAD tasting supplements, but certainly is not one of them. If there's any problem, just add more water, which you'll probably need if you're putting in a real workout :-P

    Don't be reminding me of how good the water is in Ireland; I miss that almost as much as the beer and great seafood from the coast. For those that don't know, there is a reason that Irish beer and whiskey taste so good, the water is second to none over there .
