Anybody ever use proteinfactory.com? How are their flavors, etc?
I use them all the time, just placed an order yesterday. Their prices & product are great & the service is good.
The free flavors are pretty weak, not that they taste bad, but you can barely tell there is flavoring at all. There are premium flavors that cost extra, those are just like store bought protein flavors.
Did you use the custom protein option. What were your percentages? And what for BCAA's? I could ask more...
I buy a custom 75/25 casein/egg blend that I use in MRPs. I throw a scoop of that, a scoop of whey, & a scoop of ground oats. I also make a custom night blend of 40% casein, 40% milk isolate, 20% whey- that I use before bed. I get my whey from all the whey, Its cheap & tastes better.
Never bothered with added BCAAs, I really don't think its necessary. Can't hurt I guess.
I've been using them for well over a year now. Vanilla with Splenda can usually make any mix taste decent.Originally Posted by Longdog
I would like to have somein my shakes, but I am still undecided if it would be better to order from someone like this and have them mix it all for me. Or just to buy the seperate powders and mix them myself.
I've had them mix it & done it myself. I find it easier & cheaper to just buy dextrose & maltodextrin a brewery supply store & mix it as needed. I only use it PWO anyway.Originally Posted by Jimmy_4
You could just get 2 custom blends, 1 with malto for PWO & 1 for MRP or whatever else you want.
Ahh...I never thought about a brewery supply store. Is it much cheaper?
I use them and really like their products. What made me a fan was being able to use stevia as a sweetener. I don't like using the fake sugars and the stevia works great. I use their organic egg powder which tastes great, the CFM whey and super bovine(which is what is in ergopharm's new protein, I think). For a post w/o shake I add some HRS, made from rice, to my whey. Very nice!
Protein Factory has the ****tiest customer service I've ever seen in my life...
I DO like their products, but OTOH, the only reason I use 'em is because the board sponsors don't carry egg powder...
I placed an order a week and a half ago, and it still isn't here....ever have to go through 3 or 4 days w/o powder? It ****ing sucks balls man....meanwhile I had to purchase some "ON" chocolate egg from GNC...spent 30 damn dollars for like a day and a half's worth...the stuff tastes like satan's *******...
Called up today and asked about my order....she said "Well, it looks like it wen't out today and you'll be receiving on Monday"...I was like wtf?? She said that since it isn't pre-packaged, it takes longer....Yeah right, good ****ng excuse...and so I said "Well then why does it say on the site items arrive in 2-5 business days?" She said, "Well it was mailed out on the 4th day." Pfff...yeah right...she can't even keep her ****ing story straight man...she just said that it went out yesterday and that wasn't the 4th day...
WOW....at least be honest when you **** up you know?? So, I'll be an ex-customer from now on...that along with knowing Nelson Montana is on their payroll, it disgusts me...
You can use stevia at DC/Dante's trueprotein.com and it's cheaper than PF.Originally Posted by AcuDoc
TP made me a fan. I placed an order Wednesday, got it today.Originally Posted by Rock Lee
How's the flavor?Originally Posted by Supa Freek 420
Was just about to update on the other thread but as of now I've only tried lemonade wpc. Not bad. Not bitter. But at the same time not lemonade. More of a slightly-lemony somewhat creamy flavor. Bland. Just sweet enough, maybe adding a little lemon juice will help.
Yeah, for that reason, I always place a custom order with them about two weeks before I run out of powder. Not great customer service, but I tolerate it due to the great prices they offer and the option to customer blend.Originally Posted by Jergo

Thanks for the tip. I'll give them a try. As for PF's customer service, it does suck. I have a wholesale account and I still get the runaround at times. I found making them e-mail me when the product ships works well.Originally Posted by Rock Lee
No prob. I found that adding a few packets of unsweetened kool-aid (6-10 per lb., depending on your desired degree of tartness) makes it taste goooood.Originally Posted by NPursuit
Don't know what to do about the blandness of the MPI yet though. May have to add baking chocolate and splenda.
Nice and cheap quick fix seeing as they're about 10 for a buck.
They still any good? TP has me waiting 2 weeks for the shipment.... UGH! It's like I have to order on the same day that I get my shipment, and that's 10lbs at a time...
