I have a tub of the Ghost Chips Ahoy from GNC and the taste is ok at best. For some reason the first and last sips are bad, but the middle is decent. I’ve used milk, almond milk, water and oats and there’s just this weird initial taste that is unpleasant, regardless of what it’s mixed in.

I won’t be purchasing it again and it makes sense there was an issue with production because in my tub alone the flavoring from serving to serving is inconsistent. I will say the inclusions are nice and by far the best part of the shake.

Bob is a basic bitch like me so when he says a cinnamon, nutmeg or clove spiced thing is good you know it’s good

Was a fan of PB and regular cereal milk and those were worth it when GNC does the deal that essentially makes them $20 a tub. blueberry toaster pastry was highly overrated and the pieces makes it tough to chug

Jack3d was the first one I saw with a ‘expert use only’ warning on the label. I perhaps should’ve heeded this the first time I used it (OG version) as I thought I was going to die
Now if you used to OG version of Jack3d you'd remember it was actually "JACKED" at first without the 3 right? I remember Jacob sent me like 2 or 3 tubs of "Jacked" as a product tester.

I barely remember what happened last week, remembering whether a 14 year old label had an e or a 3 is not happening. Bare in mind though it was bought here in the UK, so may have been changed to the ‘3’ version before it made its way over here.

Yeah just a funny little tid-bit about it. I remember getting a tub after my initial ones and it showed up "Jack3d" and I was like, why would they put the 3 in there, what purpose does it serve? I wonder if he ran into some issues with another product being named "Jacked" of some sort.

Probably SEO reasons. You searched jacked you get all kinds of stuff, you search jack3d and all of the results are related to the supplement. Same thing with the OL products. I think it’s corny but if I ran a supp company I’d likely do the same thing for that reason

Haven’t seen any positive feedback here aside from yours. I’m really glad I held off on this one
I have had two different experiences with it, upon my first use I was like eh this isn't all that great, but now as I am working my way through the tub I am definitely enjoying it a lot more. Is it their best flavor? Not imo, but definitely not their worst.

I sent an email expressing my displeasure with the clumping on the CG V3 legend....they sent me a link to their YouTube video saying it might clump, but use a fork

I sent them photos of the massive bricks inside the tub and they just said to shake the canister. Yeah no, I had to break them apart in my blender to make a powder again and then store in the fridge.

They should’ve used a better moisture pack, as I used other preworkouts with similar ingredients and have never experienced those types of clumping issues. If they knew clumping would be an issue, then they should have done a better job of preventing that from happening. For what we had to pay for the pre-workout, I would expect a better result.

I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t have accepted those clumping issues from their manufacturer.
With you on that, the degree to which it all is clumped is so ridiculous. They definitely didn't do a good job of trying to prevent it. Definitely bummed on it. The pre itself is solid but I probably wouldn't get it again if they ever did a rerun of it.

Same, I only shop there when they run those deals, usually can snag sparta protein for that price too. Had high hopes for the blueberry but wasn't thrilled about it.

Got the chance to try one of the updated cinnamon roll quest bars last night. They are indeed MUCH better than the old version. Definitely one of my top 5

Yes I believe so.

New Fight Through by Force Element combines Vaso6 and S7 with some others in a well rounded formula. Wish I could pick some of their stuff up stateside.

So serious question why are you always so negative?

Secondly I feel like this exact situation as been addressed with you before. While tons of companies use more nowadays, 3g is a clinically proven dose (keep in mind that is equivalent to ~6g Citrulline Malate).

Also keep in mind this isn’t the only ingredient, it’s a comprehensive pump product. A well dosed comprehensive product should probably still meet minimum effective doses (which 3g definitely is) while having other ingredients to work together to achieve the benefit desired (for example 3g Citrulline + 300mg Vaso6 would be an effective combo where as if you wanted the same benefits from just one in isolation then maybe you’d want 6g Citrulline).

Can you link me to the clinically proven study and dose and I swear I will never mention this again..
"Clinical dose ranging and tolerability studies have also been conducted for l-citrulline supplementation. One such human study demonstrated a tolerance of up to 15 g l-citrulline per day in healthy volunteers [11]. By comparison, high-doses of l-arginine (~13 g) can induce significant gastrointestinal complications [9,21]. However, at 15 g doses of l-citrulline, a lower fractional absorption rate and plasma retention of l-citrulline was observed, potentially due to saturation of its transporters (e.g., ASC or B0,+-amino acid transporters) or reduced renal conversion of l-citrulline to l-arginine. As such, the authors suggested a dose of 10 g l-citrulline for clinical use [11]. However, for increasing circulating l-arginine concentrations, doses of l-citrulline as low as 3 g have been shown to be effective [12]. Thus, the minimum effective dose is ~3 g/day, whereas the maximal effective dose may be as high as 10 g/day."

So minimum effective dose is 3g maximum is 10g, so more could be better but 3 is still proven to work. And that's taking into account that the citrulline is being used alone and without other stimulants etc.

Hers one study showing 3g l-cit increased plasma arginine.

There’s also another study showing 2.4g l-cit is enough to boost performance

Well I guess that’s that 🤷‍♂️
Have you guys seen the new revised Orange Triad formula btw???

5,000iu of D3 & 120mcg K (Menaquinone-7) are the new star players IMO.
