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.

Never tried ghost crew checking in.

I’m always suspicious of products where there’s tonnes of hype. Makes me think they’re trying to mask the fact it’s not great.

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
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.

I LOVE choc and dark rich choc for me beats milk choc and Cellucor Choc Molten for me
has been the best whey that I've enjoyed but it's been a while since I've had it. Most recently
Muscle Beach which is a multi blend protein which I prefer blend over whey has a very good
choc flavor and I loved it right down to last scoop which I made these with.:)

One of the 4th of July sale was too tempting. Package got delayed due to a warehouse error but it do be like that sometimes. Got the box of powercrunch as a freebie though so no complaints from me. I'm very happy with these two rule 1 flavors

I haven't tried GHOST anything, and really interested in some of their offerings. That being said, I'm a Graphic Designer and putting a flashy label on anything will heighten your view of the product. Optimum's Protein from what I remember sucks, just all around, but if they updated their labels to something flashy and inviting there would be a different perspective of it.

I just ordered the Molten Chocolate. Wondering why this is $10 cheaper Isolate than literally every other brand for the same serving size.

I ordered ghost chips ahoy. It's fine, maybe 6-7/10. It's definitely not living up to the hype. I also don't like PES whey flavorings, so I guess I'm an outlier.

I enjoyed Animal Mocha and Iforce Blueberry muffin much more recently.

Maybe it’s the great gains god proteinius telling you not to waste your time...




On the subject of flavours and protein, with all these gourmet flavours coming out, my favourite so far was PES’s frosted chocolate cupcake. Now that was a treat.

I like it but first impression is that it’s not their best flavor. I have only had only in a shaker with water. Will try it later in a blender- I think it will prob make a difference with the thick mix ins of cookies.

Noted it is way better than man’s cookie stuffed cookie which was absolutely terrible

Buying gear is a bit meh, i know im going to get good results.

It's otc stuff i really get excited over, such wild combinations and the challenge of finding that gem of a supplement that you really respond to.

Not to mention it helps to fill the gaps inbetween cycles.
I know this is one crazy old post but it made me think of LGI Secretabridge which was probably my favorite natural product and wondering why nobody else has made something similar to it with wild yam extract like diosgenin etc. Anyone have any ideas? I still have one bottle tucked away for when I really want to kill it at the gym I'll pop a couple because for some reason that stuff feels like legal anavar to me so when I'm coming off a cycle it's beautiful

Check out Anabol 5. It's been great so far and can be found for as low as $20 a bottle.

10 boxes quest bars, 4 boxes quest cookies, 1 kilo creatine monohydrate, 120g PeakO2, 5g yohimbine powder, 2lb spartan whey loopy fruits, 2lb spartan whey krunchy krisps, and 5lb Xtend pro molten chocolate

This is my haul from all of the sales this week haha. Roughly $250, not bad at all

Whoever in this thread said the loopy fruits tastes spot on like trix thank you! I took your word and you were right, it is DEAD ON. One of my favorite proteins I’ve ever tried, legit 10/10. Was a bit worried after getting 5lb of the double stuff cookie and finding it mediocre

If the solution is right about that Xtend pro chocolate then I’m going to be pretty damn happy with this haul.

I’m thinking about just tossing my tub away of the Chips Ahoy. I’ve only had a few shakes so far but I’m just forcing it down. It’s becoming torturous lol. Just glad I only bought one tub.

Got my XTEND Chocolate Lava Cake last night. I have to say, this is one of the best chocolate proteins I have ever had tried pretty much every brand you can think of. I was really blown away by how good it is.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who loves loopy fruits, i think sparta got the flavoring on that and the cinnamon one spot on, i love both those, by far the best tasting protein i've had

Try getting a tub of a chocolate, peanut butter or even vanilla of a brand you know you like an mix a scoop of each. Or half a scoop of each if your a single scooper kind of guy. May create a bearable taste and you don't waste the macros or money.

It's slightly less shi*ty with water imo. Still, pretty awful considering the hype around their flavoring. I prefer the flavorings of OL, Animal, Sparta, MTS, Beverly, and MSI over this.

I'm shook by the bad chips ahoy reviews lol. You'd think a collaboration would have some spot on flavoring. Man I really wanted to try this too. Those of you who bought at three letter store, I do believe you can exchange it if you don't like it.

MFit Havoc Performance Pre-Workout Review



Taste

Sour Watermelon - When I first sipped this product you get a refreshing watermelon right out of the gate. That is soon welcomed by a sour aftertaste making the flavor true to its name. While this is not a jolly rancher watermelon it is still a very dense flavor that will pack a punch. I do enjoy the extra tartness from the watermelon to give this an extra kick of flavor. Overall I like the flavor, but it is not something that will absolutely wow you. This is a flavor you can sip on and truly enjoy prior to a workout, this is nothing you have to slam back.



Mixability
I used 12-14oz of water and 1 sample pack (22g) to mix the pre-workout. Usually with a larger scoop size there is a higher possibility of clumping and particles floating around after shaking. The liquid did start to foam, which died down after about 5 minutes. What you can do to help combat this was mix the pre-workout the night before and leave in my fridge. Upon waking there should be no clumping, and no particles left at the bottom of the shaker and it mixed flawlessly. If you mix this just before you workout expect to see some foam or some particles floating around your shaker cup due to the large serving size of the activate ingredients

Formula


Per Serving:

Electrolytes (Performance/Endurance)
8g L-Citrulline Malate (Pumps, Delay Lactic Acid Build Up)
3.5g Beta-Alanine (Full Dose for Performance/Performance)
2.5g Creatine Mono (Performance, endurance, recovery, strength)
1g Beet Root Powder (Pumps)
1g Agmatine (Pump/Nutrient Partitioning)
1g Watermelon Fruit Powder (Antioxidant for Muscle Recovery)
250mg Alpha GPC ( Brain Function, Mood)
200mg Caffeine (Stimulant)
35mg L-Theanine (Enhance Caffeine Half-Life)

Workout Reaction

Pre-Workout Meal 90 minutes prior to workout (50g Protein, 60g Carbs)
Pre Dosed 15 minutes prior to workout

Training has been a PPL split with the option of 4-6 days of training a week pending recovery and volume. This workout was a back and biceps workout that I performed with a partner. The benefit of having the partner is intensity techniques that are hard to do on your own.

The workout outline started with doing low cable rows. I worked up to a top set of 10 reps and then performed a rest pause set. During the rest pause set I could feel the pumps coming on and my energy streaming from the pre-workout. Nothing stuck out this early into the workout since it is only a few warm-up sets before an all out set to failure.

Second Exercise was Banded Chin-Ups to failure (2 sets). This is when I felt the pump start to kick in. The key here is to relax your forearms and drive with your elbows and keeping your sternum upright to help prevent overlap onto secondary muscles. I could feel the lactic acid build up, but it did not prevent me from repping out some extra forced reps with someone pushing my feet up.

3rd exercise was dumbbell rows. I like to do rows off a bench resting one arm on the top of a chair so I prevent extra momentum, swing, and hip drive. This helps me focus on releasing my scapula, pausing, and using nothing but my elbow to drive the weight. By my 3rd exercise I was hitting 3 straight sets of 8 reps. My energy has not dropped a bit, my pumps were getting better, and my recovery was on par. By my 3rd set I could tell my rest periods were cut down just a touch, but not much compared to other pre-workouts I have used.

I finished the workout with a burnout set of banded hyperextensions, and once I hit failure I dropped the band and hit failure again during a dropset. Just the first set had my back crippled and super tight. What I like about this pre-workout is the Theanine dose is low. Yes it is an ingredient to help extend caffeine half life, but I notice if Theanine is too high it makes me tired, and it delays the pre-workout form kicking in. When you get 200-300mg L-Theanine it may take 45-60 minutes for me to feel the caffeine and stimulants hit me. I am a HUGE fan of the caffeine being 200mg as I do not like stim bombs, and they make me extra shaky during training, and I can crash with a higher stim intake. I try to limit my stims year round and this is a very good sweet spot.

While lit is hard to give a true rating off one pre-workout sample. I was very pleased with what I experienced during this single workout.

You got me interested. I think Beverly UMP is the best chocolate but haven’t tried Xtend Pro yet.
It’s that good I bought more of it and the cookie butter flavor, and believe it or not I like the cookie butter better than the chocolate...they are both that good.

So Xtend nailed this flavor when they called it Molten Chocolate Cake. It’s legit. Might be the best chocolate protein powder I’ve had.
