Order direct through Sparta and have fun with the nightmares.
Worst Customer Service Ever. Some people are still waiting from Memorial Day for their orders.
You try and make a comment on social media (IG/FB) They delete it like it never happened.
The sad part is, you can get better deals from other vendors and not have to wait half a decade.
oh i know all about them... repped for them when they first came out and worked pretty closely with the owner to help name some of the early products... guy is a total douche and screwed me out of a lot of supps I was owed as payment

I get that, just a personal issue that I will not order their products after being involved with them and knowing how they operate/treat people. Nothing wrong with the brand though as I think they have great products... just garbage people ha

Primeval Labs Mega Pre Red Review





Taste

Strawberry Pineapple – The second the flavor hits your tongue it gives you a good mix of both flavors. The strawberry is the dominant flavor, but not by much. The ripeness and sweetness of the fruit are captured, but you are still left with a refreshing pineapple flavor. The ratio of flavors is in a 60/40 mix with a slight edge to the strawberry. Primeval Labs does a good job of giving you exactly what is on the label and this is definitely a great tasting product. They did a good job improving the flavoring from Mega Pre Black.


Mixability
Sometimes pump products that contain ingredients that attract heat and moisture can clump very easy. To my surprise when I mixed up mega pre red I had no issues. I used 1 Scoop in 8-10oz of water. I prefer to dilute my supplements and I still found the flavor to be strong and refreshing.


Formula



Per (2 Scoops):
6g Citrulline (Pump / Prevent Lactic Acid Build up / Performance)
3.2g Beta Alanine (Performance, Endurance)
3g Betaine (Cellular Electrolyte Concentration, Hydration)
2g Choline (Nootropic to aid focus/mood)
2g L-Taurine (Recovery, Improve Glucose Cardiovascular Health, Antioxidant)
400mg Alpha GPC (Enhance Choline, Brain Function, and Muscle Control)
350mg Caffeine (Stimulant)
68mg Dicaffeine Malate (Enhance Stimulant and Caffeine Half-Life)
100mcg Toothed Clubmoss (Nootropic to aid focus)

Cost

This product may run for $45 on their main webpage, but they always have 25% off coupon codes. I have seen it on BOGO and added for Free on their 4th of July Promotions. This is one of the most cost-effective pre-workouts when on sale. You have to remember what you are getting in this product is fully transparent. Primeval Labs is no stranger to great tasting products and when they reformulated Mega Pre Black that was a huge highlight.

Pro’s
-Price on sale is a very good buy
- Open Label
- Strong and refreshing flavor
- Can Half Dose the Stim in conjunction with Mega Pre White for a stronger pump and lower stim alternative.

Cons
- Maybe too strong at 2 scoops for some (400mg Caffeine)

Ghost Chips Ahoy Whey Review




Taste

Chips Ahoy – Have you ever grew up and dunked chips ahoy cookies in milk? Guess what that is exactly what this protein powder tastes like. The collaboration with Chips Ahoy is spot on to the name of the protein powder. There are small bits of chips ahoy cookies that are covered in chocolate throughout the whey. Not only is the buttery undertone of a fresh cookie embraced in every sip, but the true flavor of a cookie is noted from the very first sip all the way through the aftertaste. This is my new favorite Ghost Whey Flavor and a complete game changer.




Mixability

I mixed this protein shake with 1 Scoop of the Whey and 4-6oz of cashew milk. This mixed with ease. There was no clumping left in the shake as the powder started to mix hitting the liquid.

When mixed in Greek yogurt (plain) I also found it to mix with ease. There are also no issues when utilized in baking. I find it to help the final product rise very well and make an incredible baked good.

Rankings

1. Chips Ahoy
2. Blueberry Toaster Pastry
3. Cinnamon Cereal Milk
4. Peanut Butter Cereal Milk
5. SnickerDoodle
6. Coffee Ice Cream
7. Fruity Cereal Milk
8. Coconut Ice Cream
9. Cereal Milk
10. White Chocolate Peppermint Bark
11. Milk Chocolate

Formula



Per Scoop:
3g Fat
6g Carbs
25g Protein

What you have to love about Ghost is the open-label on the whey protein. The only other added ingredients are cellulose and xanthan gum + Sucralose as the sweetener. There is nothing hidden in here. With a very basic formula, the greatest inclusion is a Ghost Enzyme to help breakdown the way for those who may have a slight lactose problem. This will settle very easy and sit well for almost all consumers.

14.53g from WPI
13.15g From WPC
2.98g from Hydro WPI


Cost

$39.99 on their main webpage, but you can always find a 20% off coupon. If you have coupons to the 3-letter store you can always get the added discount if you want to shop local. For the price of the open-label and flavoring, it is more of a unique buy. Think of something you can use on occasion, but maybe a touch too expensive to use on a daily basis. Most people are geared to cost-effective whey/whey blends on the market. My best piece of advice is you could half the dosage on the ghost whey and pair with a vanilla protein powder to get the enhancement of the Ghost flavoring.

Damn I want to try that but at 6g carbs not sure I want to commit to a whole tub. Sounds great though!

Got 5lb spartan double stuffed in the mail today, that flavor is suuuuper overrated in my opinion. Felt the same about the 5lb protizyme pb cookie I got as well. Both are good, neither are great.

On a more positive note, got 2lbs Xtend pro cookie butter and it is incredible. Don’t know how this one doesn’t get more attention

It’s really good man, hard to describe. It tastes like the picture on the tub haha. Maybe a bit of caramel, a bit of pb, and a bit of cookie. My current stock is

Xtend pro - cookie butter
Protizyme - pb cookie
Sparta - double stuff
Olympus - pb and blueberry
Ghost - blueberry
Cellucor - cinnamon swirl

Out of all of these the Xtend is actually my fav. I love trying new flavors, so if you are in the US and interested in a sample trade let me know!

Primeval Labs Cinnamon Milk Isolit






Taste





Cinnamon Milk – Right away the initial flavor is the pure milk taste you get when cereal sits in a bowl of milk for a prolonged period of time. That is soon complimented by the cinnamon flavor as indicated on the label. The milk is the dominating factor with the cinnamon being the aftertaste. Primeval Labs found the happy medium to give you the best of both worlds in a very refreshing and tasty way. If you are hesitant on the cinnamon being too strong or too sweet that is not the case. This will be your choice among other cinnamon based protein powders and my favorite flavor off the Isolit lineup.







Rankings



  1. Cinnamon Milk
  2. Pumpkin Pie
  3. Vanilla
  4. Chocolate

Mixability



Isolit is a pure isolate protein powder. The texture of the powder is very thin and mixes upon touching the liquid. Given the makeup of the profile it mixes thicker than I expected. The main reason could be the added Xanthan Gum. I found 6-8oz to be a sweet spot to capture the flavor of the protein powder.



I also enjoy mixing protein powder into Greek Yogurt. I mix 1 scoop of Isolit into 6oz of Greek yogurt and found it to have no issues when stirred with a spoon.





Formula







ISOLIT is a 100% pure whey protein isolate protein powder that mixes easily and tastes absolutely delicious. ISOLIT is derived from exceptionally high-quality milk, and by using only whey protein isolate, we’ve maximized protein content per scoop while limiting carbohydrates and fat.



Per Scoop:

~130 Calories

2-3g Fat

2-3g Carbs

25-26g Protein

Digseb Plus à Digestive Enzyme Blend





Cost



Primeval Labs Isolit retails around $40 for a 2lb tub. This is not including coupons and discounts you can find from online retailers. Given Primeval Labs track record on flavoring you are dealing with a high quality WPI protein powder. This is one of those products of you get what you pay for. The company is exceptional at flavoring, and this carries over into their protein powder just like EAA Max, Mega Pre, Mega Pre Red, and the rest of their line-up. The added digestive enzyme causes no bloat and goes down very easy that is just the icing on the cake to prevent bloating or GI issues.

That was one of the worst Pumpkin proteins I have ever had (no offense I love C&P and use Predator year round). Just calling it like it is

This is how I would rank Pumpkin's (Your list may vary, but I may have missed a few brands I have not tried)

1. Syntha 6 (if you have the macros)
2. MTS
3. Primeval Labs
4. Animal Pumpkin Pie
5. Nutrabio
6. 1st Phorm (Expensive as hell though)
7. Optimum
8. HIT
9. Chaos and Pain

It's heavy on the spiced component for sure. But nowhere near the worst pumpkin protein I've had. AI's No Whey Pumpkin was terrible. The combination of their flavoring with the texture of those plant-based coagulant proteins made me gag. Probably one of the only proteins I've ever tossed.

AI Sports had 2 Pumpkin's (One that was vegan and one that was whey based). The Whey based was one of the best made, the vegan was not due to ingredient profile and trying to mask the PEA/Brown Rice Makeup.
Both have been discontinued for so long so I felt it was unfair to put that on the list of products. Because AI Sports would be near the top for whey based if it was still around.

Thank you for the feedback, curious to hear more. Was considering ordering some on that BOGO tomorrow, but I can’t get it to work with mix and match flavors and don’t think I want to commit to two tubs. Sparta works with mix and match so debating on trying two more of their flavors, but I thought the double stuffed I just got was pretty overrated. Solid 8/10 and about on par with PES, but not great.

Because ghost is all about the hype and social media.


Hence why other companies are going down that route.


I was very disappointed when I tried peanut butter cereal milk, after all the rave reviews and hype, glad it was only a sample

Same with man sports, got some cookie stuffed cookie and it was meh.

On the other hand taste is very subjective🤷🏻‍♂️

Man iso-Protein >>>> Clean Protein for flavoring. Cookie Stuffed Cookie was average at best.
If you want pure cookies and cream flavor ... Beverly is the GOAT tastes like an oreo milkshake. Highly suggest.

Ghost is different since its chips ahoy that has actual pieces of the cookies, so I can see some people trying to compare it to a CNC based flavor and be underwhelmed.

Not everyone will like Ghost, just like not everyone will like other brands and products that are put out on the market. Take each review you read with a grain of salt, form your conclusion, and spend your money as you wish. Plenty of products and brands out there to satisfy your needs.

It’s does have pieces of chips ahoy in it. It’s just that the base flavor is nothing special. Kind of chalky. Makes me thirsty afterwards. I think I just had unrealistic expectations for this one. Like I said, it’s not bad at all. Just not something I’m going to buy again.

This goes to show you how everyone taste things so differently I had and reviewed a 2lb tub
of the Xtend Pro Cookie Butter and found it horribly bitter :( and a few others I know who tried
this flavor said the same. For me Metabolic Nut PB Cookie is one of the best PB Cookie flavors
and Spartan I've never tried any of their proteins so can't I comment on it. These were PB Choc Chip
protein balls that I made using this protein and even the bitterness came through strong on these
protein balls which didn't make these very tasty to enjoy.

For Xtend Pro
Molten Chocolate = GOAT, one of the best overall chocolates of all time from any brand ever made.
I would put their vanilla right behind chocolate
Salted caramel and Cookie butter were ok at best to me.
You got me interested. I think Beverly UMP is the best chocolate but haven’t tried Xtend Pro yet.
