Does the job
on 3 January 2015
First of all, customer service was excellent. I received a 4kg tub despite buying a 2.25kg one because they were out of stock and it came with a friendly handwritten note to say so. I even received a free water bottle which surprised me, so luck was on my side for once!
The product itself is good, but nothing amazing. As always with weight gainers the servings are too big for standard size shakers and you're forced to have multiple servings a day. Having them before meal times is difficult as they'll make you feel bloated and you lose your appetite, so it's best to have them as far away from meal times as possible.
The banana flavour is fine, but a little bit artificial for my liking. It tastes more like those foam banana sweets than real banana, so it can be a bit sickly sometimes, but still bearable. The powder mixes in okay but you do still get a few lumps if you're not using enough liquid, but from my experience with other weight gainers the mixing is pretty good in comparison. With the product you're getting a lot of calories without having to consume lots of solid food, so whilst it's not the best tasting product, it does the job.
The price is also pretty good considering you'll go through the tubs quickly, so it's nice to know I won't be spending a fortune through regularly buying it.
