@DieselNY

Have a couple of sampler packs of Keto Lytes HP on the way. Fantastic profile. Wanted to try different flavors before settling on one; excited to see if it makes a difference with hydration & the occasional cramping!

EDIT - - Tracking update, after less than half an hour of placing order. That's how it's done!

dear god why the hell would anyone ever spend $150 on nut butters?!
they donate 10% to the military
They taste amazing as @Hyde can tell you and if not the best on the market
I go through jars quickly as I use them for my baked goods
I am using them with a collaboration with ADNB for a fall menu

Everyone is entitled to how they want to spend their money. I have no issue supporting a small business during Covid who hand crafts some of the best in America.

Ghost Greens Iced Tea Lemonade








Taste





Iced Tea Lemonade – Iced tea on its own tastes bitter unless you pour a ton of sugar into it to spice it up. Adding in a lemonade aspect improves the tart and tangy backend flavor to make this enjoyable. At first sip, you are presented with an earthly tea flavor from the raw materials and makeup of the formula. Given the fact Ghost can flavor so well, this is instantly amplified due to the lemonade addition. While it is not an overbearing lemonade flavor the amount is just written to leave a lingering aftertaste that is pleasant. This is not my favorite of the Ghost Greens flavors because I am not a huge lemonade person. I will give respect when respect is due as I can find myself investing in this in the future as a good rotation to lime and guava berry.





Mixability



Greens are known to be notorious for clumping and bad mixability. Ghost Greens, on the other hand, does a good job of combating that common problem. When mixed up it does leave some particles and at the bottom of your shaker, but that is going to be inevitable with such a complex Greens formula. The way Ghost can make a large raw active greens profile shows the amount of quality control the company put into formulating this product. I used 1 scoop in around 16-24oz of water, which tends to be a sweet spot for myself with most greens powders.



Ranking of Flavors:



  1. Guava Berry
  2. Iced Tea Lemonade
  3. Lime
  4. Original

Formula







6.64g Combination of fruits and greens

- 4.3g Greens (Vitamins & Minerals)

Assuming you are getting a few tubs, even factoring shipping it will be cheaper/tub than many grocery store premium brands I have found. With better macros, taste/consistency and a quality brand.

Nothing wrong with a big cheap tub of Skippy Natural! But this is a delicious option for when you are making your macros work for you.

If you have some good tasting casein blend proteins on hand you can actually make some tasty protein
butters at home. The last one I did I mixed 1 scoop of a cookies & cream protein in a bowl with a heaping
tbs of a chunky almond butter and a little unsweetened almond milk and mixed until it reached a thick
spreadable butter and it was DELICIOUS ! and it didn't cost me $$$ that some of these protein nut butters
are selling for. You can do this with all different types of flavored proteins and use different types of nut
butters and make your own unique flavors.

I just got a box of the Outright S'mores, I think they are Very Good !
It does sound good!

I'm in America and I've never had one period :unsure:
Haha well i run a supplement store and I feel honor bound to try everything that arrives on my shelves. That way I at least can give an honest opinion of them based on n=1. But when it comes to bars me and my significant other have a good time trying them together and arguing about which is the best one :D

Outright is great but I am finding batches to be inconsistent. Some are soft and taste amazing, some are hard and a darker looking color. Not sure if heat is playing a role or if some batches are being baked too long or something. I'm now ordering one box at a time out of fear I get a bad batch.

The first batch of PB Cookie Dough was AMAZING. They were soft and I could eat almost a box at a time if I wanted to. But then I purchased a later batch and the bars were darker in color and not as soft and tasty. Not sure what the deal was. So I decided to put them in the microwave for 10 seconds and that improved them somewhat.

This has been my experience as well, unfortunately. Shortly after the Cookies & Creme PB and Smores PB launched, I ordered a few boxes and was blown away. Soft, to the point of melt in your mouth. Months later, picked up a few more boxes. They were noticeably larger, very firm & dry. Shame too, because when you get a good box of these bars, they absloutely can't be touched.

Same problem. I loved the Oatmeal Almond Butter bars when i first got them about 7 months ago, and I've gone through 12 boxes. Different texture and taste box to box, different sizes. The bars I've gotten recently are the worst ones yet--smaller and dried out, bland taste.

Same unfortunately. The ones I tried were so brittle that it just always left a mess in the car, on the seats, anywhere etc.

The flavor names sound amazing but the bars themselves tasted sort of like the DIY ones but as if they sat somewhere for a long time.

I am at the point where I just go into VS and and feel the bars. If they feel soft, I'll buy them out. Otherwise, I think I am done ordering Outright online.

Someone pointed out the Olympus sale...couldn't help myself. These products @ those prices ? Sign me up

GNO hooked it up - thanks man !!! View attachment 197936
Picked up an order of the 5x protein + grind as well! Might just be the best deal out there for a great blend protein. The grind isnt too shabby either... nothing too fancy but a nice little energy booster and the cappuccino flavor is stellar! Wish more energy products came in coffee flavors for mornings! @GNO

Yeah I couldn't pass it up. I am a blend guy so the protein was a no-brainer and the Grind even at single scoops is well dosed for me as a morning/afternoon option or with something like SuperSwole for pre-w/o

Ghost Energy








Taste





Citrus – Ghost Energy in citrus reminds me of a diet sprite. You get the carbonation provided in the diet soda with a lingering sweet and sour flavor in the aftertaste. This flavor is straight to the point, provides an ample amount of flavor, and has a hint of a white monster in the tail end. This isn’t a bad flavor per say, but it is the least enjoyable of the bunch.



Tropical Mango – The tropical flavor captures a fruit punch melody that hits your taste buds out of the get go. Pineapple, orange, passionfruit and grape linger as the mango flavor hits hard in the backend of the aftertaste. Ghost did a good job on capturing all the elements of these flavors to provide a very smooth and refreshing carbonated beverage. If you enjoy a melody of flavors this is the one for you.

Sour Patch Kids Red berry – I have never had the legend pre-workout flavor of Ghost Redberry, but this is a game changer. The contrast of sour and sweet is absolutely perfect. The icing on the cake is the carbonation where the flavors go hand in hand with a perfect ratio to provide the true flavor of sour patch kids. Given how well Ghost was able to replicate this in the energy drink I now see why this flavor was so heavily requested in the pre-workout powder..

Warheads Sour Watermelon - What I enjoyed about Ghost is how they bring a very natural flavor to the market when duplicating a popular candy. Right away you get the sweetness of a warhead, but not to the point of filling your taste buds with sugar. The sour taste of the candy comes in the backend, which gives you the dual flavor from a true warhead. The carbonation compliments the flavoring making it shine.







Ranking of flavors:



  1. Sour Patch Kids Redberry
  2. Warheads Sour Watermelon
  3. Tropical Mango
  4. Citrus


Formula







200mg Natural Caffeine

1g Taurine (Endurance booster)

1g Acetyl-L-Carnitiine (ALCAR) ((Boost in focus))

150mg Alpha-GPC (Cognitive booster)

100mg NeuroFactor (Brain health and function)

25mg Astragin (Improve uptake of ingredients)



Ghost energy provides a fully transparent label

Ghost exclusively partnered with Anheuser-Busch to manufacture and distribute the ready to drink products.





Thanks for the review and I agree, Redberry is the best of the bunch.

Quick 80:20 Review on new flavors.

Both flavors tested with 8 oz of 50/50 Almond milk & Water
*Cinn-A-Doodle Crunch: this mixes thick. It was almost like a milk shake. Think banana + milk shake thickness. Very natural and pleasant cinnamon flavor without the sweetness from a cereal. This is more along the lines of a snickerdoodle as previously reported. I absolutely loved this flavor and would rank it higher than the PBC below. I can't wait to try this in a yogurt sludge, oats and cream of wheat. Shake mixes standard white color. No mixing issues.

*Peanut Butter Chocolate: I would have honestly preferred more PB, but the flavor is still outstanding. 35/65% (PB/C) The PB taste is more of a taste you get from like powdered peanut butter. The chocolate is rich like their previous chocolate lava flavor. I want to try this in my oats. (oats + pb + a scoop) I have a feeling this will make the PB pop nicely! Overall the flavor is very nice and the after taste is even better. It just lingers like a rich dessert. :) No mixing issues.

Grab these at a discount while the sale is up! I think it ends Sunday. Use Bob15 for 24.64/bag! https://buildfastformula.com
I went with this instead of some of the new products released this week.

Stocking up on some essentials and supports

The Glycoload cyclic dextrin was clearanced and was awesome tonight - zero bloat and great useable fuel.

The Candy Corn Focus XT is the best flavor of Focus I have ever had!
Nice !
