I was at Wallmart the other day and they had a boxing day sale on
a few containers of Six Star Body Fuel ' advanced whey protein'.
Each one holds 907 grams or 2lbs of the stuff.
1 scoop: The scoop is pretty small
110cal
fat 2grams
saturated fat 1 gram
carbs 3 grams
protein 20 grams

They were regular 26$ and were on for 16 so i bought
2 of them (chocolate flavor)
Has anyone tried them? I hope i didn't waste my
money as i haven't even tasted it yet.

Well, right off the bat, seems expensive. $32 for 4 pounds, and it's supposed to be on sale. Most good value whey only products cost like $25 for 5 pounds.

Expensive.

You'll know it was a waste if you get the massive ****s after you try it out.

I bought Walmart brand the other day as I ran out, called "Weider's Daily Protein." Same facts as you listed. Tastes AWFUL. I can't put my finger on the taste; like flour or something? It's just ****ing terrible. My Nitrean can't arrive soon enough. That's the last time I scrape the bottom of the tub without planning to buy some quality stuff ahead of time.

Six Star seems to be walmart's high end stuff. They're still carrying Body Fortress as the cheaper brand (crap), but replaced a VERY decent EAS whey with the Six Star. I haven't tried it yet, instead electing to go for a 3lb box of Designer brand they had on the bottom shelf. It seems they've stepped it up a bit in the supplement department as of late.

I had a good workout tonight and tried a post workout shake with
it. I used milk, water and the powder. It was just tolerable.
I also passed up on the Designer Whey they had right beside it.
I can't imagine drinking this stuff with plain water. I checked their website out which had all the regular hoopla about
why it's better than all the rest etc, that it's not chalky tasting and that
it's even great on it's own.
Oh well, I'll just mask it's flavour in my shakes with some other stuff
....a glob of peanut butter, a banana or whatever.

By the way, does it annoy anyone here that when you buy a larger jug
of protein powder and open it up, that it's only about 1/2 full?
For the amount of protein powder they put in it, why don't they use
an apropriate size container, or just full the damn thing up?

Same reason every other company does that. Marketing and contents settle during shipping/storage.

yeah, and those 5lb jugs dont exactly fit well into my cupboards.
