    Can't vouch for Rocky Road but Extreme Milk Choc is good stuff.

    • +2 votes

      Can also vouch for EMC. What's the opposite of vouching for something, because Rocky Road is really ordinary…from memory I didn't consume the tub.

  •  

    Rats, was holding out for a good price for weeks and finally bit the bullet the other day for some Extreme Milk Choc. Should have held out.

    Anyone tried the rocky road?

    Btw, if the banana cream one goes on special get it, it's yum! Makes me wanna workout, just so I can have that as a treat afterwards lol

      Can second this! The banana cream flavour is so yummy!

    This is the "regular low" price that amazon seem to sometimes stock (I cant figure out why, but seems to happen fairly often)

    If you prefer to wait for a different flavour I would create an alert on CamelCamelCamel

    • +1 vote

      Hmm according to camelcamelcamel it hasn't been below $70 since March.

      •  

        Sorry mate, I should have been more specific,

        Every month or so flavours go on sale for 69$ I assume its when they have too much stock or has to do with potential expiry date.

        This is amazon's clearance price for them.

        (So if you like the above flavours buy them now, or wait till your one hits 69$)

        This is still a good deal just giving more info because I wait till my flavour hits 69 :)

        •  

          No worries, it's just that it's the same Amazon URL for all flavours, I didn't specify a flavour in creating the Camelx3 alert, and it was only just triggered this morning even though only a couple of flavours were discounted. For that reason I think the camelx3 prices are not flavour-specific, and I assume is the same for historical price chart?

          Anyway it's just a technicality, the good thing is I'm happy with extreme milk choc at the current price :)

  •  

    Approx how many of these tubs for an average guy to turn into a hulk ?

    •  

      about 3 - 6 months + great genetics = proper diet + workout n cardio regime

    • +7 votes

      About 3 to 6 years with 1 tub a month + Nutritious high protein food + Genetics + good workout plan. Consistancy is the key. You can aslo abuse a little bit of steriods to fast forward 3 to 6 years down to a year or year and a half with plenty of side effects that you may not want.

    • +1 vote

      Whatever you do, just don't stock pile on a single sale; because these have use-by dates.

      It's still safe to consume past expiry, but it will be much less effective/nutritious than a fresh one.

    Also is $69.95 for Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Coconut, French Vanilla, Cookies & Cream, Banana and Chocolate Mint

    Thanks OP bought another extreme milk choc!

    •  

      Looks like they've dropped prices for more flavours now. Thanks, deal updated.

  •  

    Seems like there's more / different flavours discounted.
    I didn't see extreme milk choc discounted but choc mint was, so was banana and a couple of others.

    •  

      Interesting, extreme milk choc was definitely discounted until minutes ago.

  •  

    The following form SIS looks a good value too.

    Anyone here tried pure product protein?

  • +2 votes

    Anyone has any experience with this and also Bulk Nutrient's WPC? Just wondering what the difference is.

    Seems to be more expensive than BN's WPC (which has slightly lesser protein per serve, about 22g), but around the same price (excl. delivery) as BN's WPI (which has slightly more protein per serve, about 25g).

      Macros and ingredients you can compare yourself, but for the subjective part - ON has far better taste, texture and mixability.

    • +4 votes

      In my opinion:
      ON Tastes Better (because it is sweeter), is easier to mix, and is a brand. Most people I've spoken with buy this because of the taste, or the brand.
      BN has fewer filler ingredients (which is a big plus point actually), tastes a bit less artificial, and better value for money. Personally, I like both and am willing splurge on ON when it goes for a good price.

      • +1 vote

        My experience is that BN is sweeter, and gets sickly sweet if you have shakes with concentrated doses of whey. Easily fixed by including unflavoured whey in your order and mixing it in. Agree to everything else you said though.

        Personally I just buy whatever is cheapest between the two, they're both great products but the difference isn't significant enough as these things are just a small consideration on your overall health goals.

        •  

          yeah I find BN's to be sweet enough for me, and it tastes reasonable too (Chocolate and Choc Honeycomb), so can't really imagine something sweeter than that.

          Is ON's significantly easier to mix as compared to BN though?

          Fair enough, thanks for the insights guys!

          • +2 votes

            @squarepants: I find ON easier to mix than BN but not worth considering when buying. I find BN/Myprotein has a more natural taste while ON is easier to mix, has better packaging/scoop and has a different taste. It's worth buying one tub of ON to see which one you like.

            •  

              @Jacko1235: 'It's worth buying one tub of …' - so true, you really don't know if you've got the best protein which meets your standards for taste until you try them. I was with ON forever with EMC flavour thinking it was a 9/10 and then I tried Ghost which knocked it back a peg. I just try and get samples or ask to try friends proteins and offer mine so I can experience as many as possible.

      •  

        I can't stand most artificial sweeteners so have had a hard time with BN personally, have only tried chocolate flavours of their whey though.

        I usually go for Double Rich Chocolate (seems more like milk chocolate than Extreme Milk Chocolate). Only other I've tried is Extreme Milk Chocolate which was ridiculously sweet by comparison.

        •  

          Agreed. Having gone off sugar for 5 years now, I cannot tolerate the sweetness of these protein powders. Additionally, sucralose and Acesulfame-K are not good for you. If you're consuming these protein powders daily you're really asking for trouble.

    •  

      go the WPC, support aussie companies

  •  

    VPA and Bulk Nutrients products are way cheaper, arguably better products and you're supporting Australian businesses.

    • +2 votes

      yeah but you automatically look bigger if you carry a tub of ON around inside the gym.

      •  

        Bruh I do curls with my ON bottles. Can't keep the women away!

      •  

        i can't believe people still do this, still remember the big red BSN tubs back in the day, overpriced creatine and sugar haha

  •  

    Aside from Extreme Milk Choc, what are your top 3?

  •  

    My top 3 are Mocha, Chocolate Malt and Chocolate Coconut.

    Cheers mate.

    how do you guys normally consume your protein shakes? Would the chocolatey protein be fine with water, or is it better in a milk shake.

    • +1 vote

      Milk shake! Plus you get added protein from the milk itself.

      • +1 vote

        I think absorption may be better/faster with water alone than with milk. Can anyone confirm this science? Water alone better for post workout. With milk fine for top ups.

        • +1 vote

          Doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. As long as you're hitting your protein macros and consuming protein within a couple of hours after working out you'll be fine.

        • +1 vote

          I believe the theory is that the fat in milk lines your stomach with a barrier that slows down the protein absorption rate such that you might miss your metabolic window post workout. But in practice, who the f#(K really knows.

          •  

            @aldroid: Interesting! I might drop the milk and go with water then.

            I don't know if it's a milk thing or not but I'm finding myself waking up in the middle of the night to use the toilet (broken sleep) which is annoying.

            I'll try with water and see how it goes.

              @montorola: You'd be best going with a product that doesn't use artificial sweeteners. Sucralose and Acesulfame-K have been proven to effect gut bacteria causing digestive issues amongst other things.

      in cereal for breakfast, wpc with granola is so good

    • +1 vote

      I low carb so I only have proteins which taste good with water, I do know however that having them with milk takes the flavours to the next level. SO if you have no dietary requirements/limitations then I would go with milk for sure.

    Anyone tried both 'Banana' and 'Banana cream' and placed to comment on the difference?!

    • +1 vote

      They are the worst. Contains artificial colour 102 (aka FD&C Yellow 5) and triggers my asthma like a mofo.

    Received my extreme milk choc today - expiry is Nov 2021.
