So, I’m pretty annoyed with Formulx right now. Initially caught on to their recovery protein product a couple years ago, so much so that they were the first affiliate program I ever agreed to participate in and give them props on my other blog, occasionalfaileo.com.
Their vanilla recovery protein is the best, but their supply chain is the absolute WORST. They have been continuously experiencing inventory issues, with product out of stock for months on end. To borrow a phrase from the youths, I HAVE NO CHILL about this. I need vanilla protein for my morning smoothies.
Last year, Progenex lost their mind about OMG EXCLUSIVE limited edition Cookies & Cream More Muscle being available at regionals only, so being in FOMO mode, bro style, I grabbed a bag. (Three weeks later they added that flavor to the full time lineup. Talk about a sh!tty alarmist marketing plan. Then again, it can’t be that sh!tty if it worked on putzes like me.)
It took me ages to finish, because I really didn’t need any muscle-building protein in my life. When my last canister of Formulx ended, I had no choice but to validate my $70 impulse purchase and use the Cookies & Cream down to the last scoop. So, I started in on it, half a serving at a time.
With the Cookies & Cream finally out of the way, I logged on to buy my trusty favorite, Formulx. Much to my chagrin, sold the eff out. They’ve been out of stock now for an unacceptably long time (months).
I made a terrible horrible no good very bad mistake and bought a $15 small canister of something that claimed to be grassfed and natural at Target out of sheer desperation. I know. I am ashamed to admit this. However, once I discovered that I could get Quest Bars on Amazon Prime for the same member price as GNC, I let that membership expire and hate to indulge their stupid non-member markup.
Welp, this random Target stuff is AWFUL (surprise surprise), can’t even choke it down right now, even blended with coconut water & frozen fruit.
So now, I need your recommendations!
Optimum Nutrition, EAS, Pure Protein, Progenex? For those of you who use protein supplements in your diets, which is your favorite? Protein powder is never cheap, so any recommendations would be appreciated!
(For the love of all things lulu, please don’t say PlantFusion. That stuff is A-W-F-U-L.)
