The New Formula is TERRIBLE!!!!
on May 18, 2013
Recently, Dymatize changed the formula of their Super Mass Gainer. It used to be my favorite weight gainer. It was one of the products I had on my Subscribe and Save list and was getting a 12 lb. box shipped every two months. I had just finished off my last box of the old formula and now am trying out the new formula for the first time.
Let me tell you...after having just one serving of the new formula...it is absolutely disgusting! I hate it!
The old formula was a fine powder that was easy to scoop out and mixed easily with water just by stirring with a spoon. It tasted very good (I always got the Vanilla flavor) and had a nice creamy milkshake-like quality.
The new formula is clumpy and difficult to scoop out. Since you're scooping out clumps, it's difficult to measure out exactly the same amount each serving. When you add water to the clumpy mess, it does not seem to dissolve, but instead clumps up even more. The result is a bland tasting, watery concoction, with clumps on the bottom that you will need to chew.
If that weren't bad enough, they tripled the amount of cholesterol per serving from 35mg to 105mg, while reducing the amounts of all the other nutritional values. Vitamin A went from 4150 IU down to 3500 IU, Vitamin C went from 70 mg down to 60 mg, Vitamin D went from 210 IU down to 100 IU, etc... You get the picture.
The new Dymatize formula is an inferior product. Needless to say, I am cancelling my Subscribe and Save for this item and will probably go back to using Optimum Nutrition's Serious Mass product.
