The Chocolate mint is ONE OF if not THE the best tasting shakes I've ever had. I like drinking this before bedtime because it fuels me all night when most recovery happens. Excellent ratio of protein to carbs so it doesn't have a huge glycemic load like most other gainers. Reasonably priced and its from Universal so you know its quality.
I have been reading how good this stuff tastes, but i was hesitant as usual. Universal Nutrition is one of my favorite companies because they actually do their best to deliver the highest quality product for the most inexpensive price. All of the products i have tried from this company have delivered results. This really is one of the last remaining companies that tries to satisfy its customers and not get filthy rich form them. With that being said, even though i was hesitant about buying "Real Gains", i went for it. I just received the product yesterday, and couldn't wait to try it out.
First of all, the bag is huge! I am still amazed at the amount of product for the price! Amazing! So after i got back from the gym i ripped into this stuff and made myself a 3/4 serving in 5oz. Vit D milk and 5 oz. water. i have a cheap shaker bottle with one of those spring balls inside and this stuff mixed up perfectly!!! It reminds me of powdered creamer being mixed with coffee. After i mixed it all together, i was nervous about tasting this product. I can honestly say that i have never finished any protein powder or weight gainer i have ever bought. Most of the time i will give away about half the product because eventually i just cannot tolerate the way it makes me feel (car-sick). Well even though i have only tried 2 full servings of this stuff, i KNOW that i will finish this 10 lb bag! Even with 3.5 scoops of this stuff in 10 oz of liquid, it is still very liquid and not viscous at all! The taste is also unbelievable!!!!!! Actually, i find myself enjoying this so much that i drink it within 5 min. If you are looking for something that mixes well, actually tastes GOOD, and i don't mean "good for a protein or weight gainer", and has a great ingredient line-up, this is something you want to try.
Granted, i have not been taking this product for long enough to see results, I will give it 5 Stars because Universal has ALWAYS delivered with their products for me.
