I tried the Isopure drink that someone mentioned earlier, and it's
pretty good. A little on the bland side, like drinking a carbonated
juice drink that has set out for a few days, but palatable. I liked
the Blue Raspberry best so far.
I've not tried that one. At least they offer other flavors. One gets
sick to death of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry after awhile!
Also, the Pro Slam is good, and goes down fast. They're expensive,
though, at close to $3 for 45g (if you buy a case of 12), so I can't
use them all the time. The lemon lime is the best tasting protein I've
Never tried that. I tend to get the gallon jugs of powder when I'm not
focusing on real food.
IMHO protein powders are "lazy" food, but I don't object to them. ;-)

I will agree with you on advocating Blender Bottles. Those things are
the bomb. I have three. You close it and shake it like crazy and it
will NEVER splatter a portion of your drink out the top of a loose
lid. I've never used their spiral ball, but that seems like a useful
component - just don't like that extra clean up.
You mean the little whisk thing that goes in it? Buddy, you're really
missing out! I shake my protein really hard about 10 times, and that's
it. That little whisk just blends it right up.
I love them too, with the right powder. Cheap ones (cheap powders) tend
to pack around the blades.
After I use it, I just rinse it out with hot water, then turn it
upside down and let it dry for the next time. I throw it in the
dishwasher every other day or so.
I leave it upside down in my locker at work with a quick dry from paper
And five bucks? I thought I paid eight at GNC! D'OH! Oh, well, a fool
and his money...
I think I'm just lucky in that my local GNC isn't all that popular.
About every other month, my local GNC has killer specials on things. I
picked up 2 blender bottles for $5 each, I picked up several cases of
Pro Slams for $20 each (that's a case of 12, so that comes down to
$1.66 each; almost half price), and a 5lb container of protein powder
for $20 or $25. If you just catch them when they're wanting to move
some product, you can luck out and get some good deals!
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
