Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex Gainer Chocolate Powder 4.6Kg (Personal Care)
I'll just preface this review by saying that I've tried more than my fair share of gainers from a variety of brands (USN, Gaspari, Dymatize ..etc).

Mixability: 10/10 - probably the best gainer in terms of mixability I've ever had.

Taste: 10/10 - solid. Not too sweet. Deep chocolaty taste.

Value: 6/10 - not going to lie, but this is quite expensive for a gainer (especially considering the ingredient profile). Then again, this is Optimum Nutrition.

Ingredients: 7/10 - simple. Ingredient profile is basic, offering a good balance of carb/protein ratio and a spectrum of vitamins. Most other gainers take on a more meal-replacement role - adding BCAA, (maybe) creatine, and some overhyped supplement (CLA, HMB...etc).

Noted: The powder itself looks very refined, doesn't clump together, and is quite light. So expect a serving (of just powder) to fill 2/3rds of your shaker. Probably explains why it mixes so well.

Overall: 8.5/10 - Tastes great, mixes even better. Solid product in that it's basic. Great for beginners or for those who are willing to pay a bit extra for a simple gainer done very well.
