    in a store? or anywhere besides their site? I'd buy 1 of each to try em, but at $36 for 2lbs on their site its pretty expensive. Anyone have coupon codes for their site maybe?

    I'd greatly appriciate it if you could show us weekly updates of your supplement stash, b/c I'm sure it resembles something of a small nutrition store by now. lol.

    no idea, they just came out a couple weeks ago. I can't find em anywhere other than ONs site, and $36 + $7 shipping is brutal for 2lbs of whey

    Enjoy #1 Selling 100%
    Whey Gold Standard™
    In 4 New Seasonal Flavors

    AURORA, Illinois, November 6th – Optimum Nutrition (ON) announces four exciting new seasonal flavors for the sports nutrition industry’s most popular whey protein. 100% Whey Gold Standard™ is now available in 2-pound containers of Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pie, Eggnog, and Gingerbread Cookie – but only while quantities last. These holiday-themed flavors complement an impressive list of 15 existing flavors and provide customers with an even broader range of choices for making superior quality protein shakes.

    “For over a decade, 100% Whey Gold Standard™ has been the gold standard supplement for bodybuilders, strength athletes, and anyone who’s serious about health and fitness,” said Phil Brown, food scientist with ON in Aurora. “Now they can mix up a shake with these new seasonal flavors the same way they mix up their routine at the gym.”

    Optimum Nutrition’s position of industry leadership is based on listening to customers, researching the latest science and implementing strict quality controls over every step of the company’s GMP-approved in-house manufacturing operation. As a result, the taste, texture, mixability and purity are incredibly consistent. All flavors of 100% Whey Gold Standard™ provide 24 grams of pure whey protein per serving from four distinct sources including cross-flow and ion-exchange whey protein isolates, whey protein concentrate, and hydrolyzed whey peptides.

    Founded in 1987, Optimum Nutrition is a leading manufacturer of premium nutritional supplements. Recognized for quality and innovation, the company maintains two distinct brands – Optimum Nutrition and American Body Building – each offering a comprehensive product line. ON owns and operates four state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and strategically located distribution centers across the United States.

    I'm now interested in trying a few of these.

    Have you tried the eggnog yet? If so, how is it?

    I'll be doing a 4-week cycle of Epistane, alongside Anabolic Pump. That'll be a couple of weeks from now. I made a custom mix, which is gonna cost me $16 per pound. I'm on a tight budget enough as it is, for the upcoming month since I'm stocking up on everything I'll need for my cycle. Then during my 4 weeks of cycling, I'm gonna be stocking up on everything I need for PCT.

    Anyways; if I am 205 lbs, and you must consume 1g of protein per pound of body weight, then how many pounds of whey should I stock up on for the month? Any idea? I did some math and ended up figuring out about 6,000-something grams to be spread throughout 30 days.

    should get as much as possible from whole foods. for the 200g I target a day, I try to not take in more than 50~75g from shakes, the rest from whole foods. I just bought all 4 flavors cause they are limited I've had weeks where I didn't take in any whey.

    So its kinda hard to say, you need to subtract out how much will be whole food first

    Root Beer Float-flavored whey would taste amazing. Well, you'd think so anyway. It really does sound great, though. The idea.

    Orange Dreamsicle from GF Pro... how I love that. Raspberry Lemonade was a big letdown considering I love both those flavours separately. I still don't know what went wrong, except that it's still sitting on my cupboard lol.

    I actually just switched from ON to ATW - I've been a straight ON chocolate person forever because it's so smooth and the price (was) good... But after sampling ATW's protein, you can't beat the price or ingredient profile!

    oh damn, that does sound nice. I agree with you on the ATW chocolate. I've been buying either EAS from sams, or house brand from GNC or vitamin shoppe for plain chocolate, but no more
