    Thumbs up Optimum 100% whey - choc. mint


    damn we need a supplement review section chemo ... anways

    last cutting cycle i tried optimum's 100% whey choc. and it was okay but you grow and get used to any protein shakes taste (well, i do). well i just got chocolate mint and must say, taste damn good. if you've ever had an Andes mint... the shake taste EXACTLY like one. I hardly taste the chocolate, mainly mint .... really good.

    if your one of the people who worries about taste in a shake and you like andes mints, try this one.

    Another review: I got a lot of people asking me about Syntrax Straight (soposed to be 6% purer than monohydrate). It mixes better than monohydrate and 98% of the creatine mixes in water. It's tasteless and if you use monohydrate and/or have gotten good gains/pumps from creatine monohydrate, you might want to try this. Best part, its 19$ for a kilo (200 servings, 2.2lbs) which is cheaper than a kilo of monohydrate creatine and its purer. If your looking to take creatine you might want to try this as well. Note: I haven't done a cycle of it yet, just took it for 1 week given to me buy a friend. Pumps were about the same as monohydrate but this is cheaper and purer so ...

     

    Lata fellas... and if you see chemo tell him add a supp. review section (unless im blind and didnt see it... let me know)

    Yeah you can certainly just post any reviews you want right in this section. Too many sections makes it a pain to try and find posts. I hate boards that split forums up into every single minor detail. Anyway syntrax has some good stuff but until i hear more reviews about the product your speaking of im going to stick to the tried and true version of creatine, call me old fashioned if you will.

    haha maybe we should substitute it with something we dont use much or can combine 2 others. but ya i tried choc. before and it was okay, like i said the taste you get used to. i was expecting this to be about the same, nothing great tasting or anything... just good to serve it point, give me protein. But damn it's pretty damn good and cheap.... biggin knows about them andes mints during bulk cycles

    i agree. i always 3-4 types of powder on hand to change up the taste. Even muscle milk has its mediocre days after a few weeks. my thought is any flavor other than choc/van will fade into mediocrity and beyond once you get used to it....im assuming the same will happen with the choc mint. I will probably buy the 2lb to test it out however....Sage

    I had chocolate mint and I loved it.  The pina colada was good for about 2 weeks and then it became so so.

    damn bro your brave, id never buy anything but maybe a pina colada daquari... never a protein shake. i like going to bb competitions, all the major companies are there giving away free samples of their protein shakes. its a good way to get about 250g of protein and save about 300$ on tasting 10 different shakes.

    Bigg's Tired Choc Mint Review-
    YES. It tastes like Andes mints. Good comparo. Smells ****ing great as well. It's not in front of me at the moment, but I believe there's a difference of one gram more of fat or carb and one gram less of protein per scoop than reg chocolate Optimum whey, and the cholesterol is markedly higher if memory serves... Let me also say that I will not be buying any other whey supp for awhile (possibly try Pro Rated since it's so cheap, just to try it), because I have found the absolute best for me. Try it and you won't be disappointed. Full endorsement. By the way YJ and people who do not necessarily like thick shakes, from my experience this tends to be thicker, but thick consistency is a big plus with me... and thicker by comparison to reg Optimum chocolate isn't that thick anyway. Is the absolute **** on wheels (positive) with milk, and still very palatable with water (as some of you know I ****ing hate **** with water). The mint quality is perfect, just enough to be a marked change from the normal chocolate and nothing so radically different as to subtract from your Optimum Whey experience.

    Agree to Disagree


    I hate to spoil the party, but I didn`t find the Choc Mint very satisfying.
    It smelt & looked better than it tasted.
    I still prefer the Opt Strawberry.

    ya my choc. whey was pretty thin and runny, this is noticeably thicker and "perfect"... not so thin like choc. was but not to thick like you have to constantly add more water/milk to drink it either. thumps up for choc. mint 

    I was this close from ordering strawberry until i saw choc. mint 2lber on muscleshoppe.com (cheapest online store out there) so i decided to give it a try. My friend is getting the strawberry, ill try it when he gets it and see how it compares nelson.

    Cool optimum's 100% is WHEY better than the competition


    Im a huge fan of Optimum's protein, been taking it for about 4 years now... but that Chocolate Mint tasted like barfing up Peppermint Schnapps... but I love their other proteins...

    whats that site bro, i went to jesupgym.com but it didnt work. muscleshoppe has been the cheapest ive found, they beat all prices for each supplement you order if found for cheaper (unlike bb.com only beats 1 of the supps. u buy) and shipping is only 4.50 for anything less than 100$... its free

    hell if this site is cheaper, tell us bro. quit holdin back

    its still creatine, just uses a new type of bond instead of monohydrated creatine that allows it to be purer.

    yes this mixes alot better than monohydrate and ive talked to storm (dude who runs Syntrax Innov.) and he said the next big batch of Straight will be even better and mix with VERY little not dissolving because it was kinda "trial and error" with smaller batches of creatine and experiments to get the mixture perfect and should be out on market already.

    I love Optimum Chocolate Mint!!
    Strawberry was killer, as was Chocolate.
    Natural Vanilla is absolutely disgusting.

    ProLab Creatine dissolves completely and is tasteless (to me, anyway). If you mix it with warm water it dissolves really fast.

    ya warm water is best for dissolving to me as well, but thing is this creatine anahydrous is 6% purer, mixes better and tasteless ... all that is great but its even cheaper than just about any kilo of monohydrate, 18-19$.
