Controlled Labs, being the generous company they're well known for as well as retaining some of arguably the most personable board representatives, hooked up many a person with their new MRP only asking for honest reviews and logs. This, while generous, was highly unnecessary as it is already common knowledge how great Golden Gains was (their previous MRP) as well as knowing that everything CL releases is quality; people would've jumped ship regardless. I was one of these lucky peeps picked, and here's my final review of their Gold Feast.
GOLD FEAST Ė 9/10
My final review changes things up a bit.Originally Posted by Initial Review thoughts on Taste
Taste: 9.5/10 - I don't like giving 'perfect' ratings, but this almost got the nod. As you can see above, my initial thoughts pointed towards milk being bangggin' (don't get me wrong, it is easily a 9/10 in milk) -- but good gracious did the water grow on me. I undoubtedly prefer water as my solvent of choice. Very easy on the stomach, and the taste bros, the taste I'm certainly not a fan of proteins in water (I can think of no other protein that I PREFER in water, and a small, small handful of proteins I can tolerate in water), but this > all without an inkling of doubt. I drank a GF shake in water daily after spending my first week in the milky creaminess (wut?), and I miss it now.
Mixability: 8.5/10 Ė Itís a MRP with a ton of other goodies, and even with that NOT in mind it still mixes extremely well. If you allow it to sit, of course the extra grit/complexes will settle. A quick shake-weight maneuver and slam it back and youíre good to go.
Some minor settling
Some frothiness - CL recommends using a spoon to stir to avoid this; however, I don't mind it a bit... so shaker cup it is
Misc thoughts: The smell of the powder, especially after mixing is not quite the most tasteful smell in the world; but once the golden viscousness meets the palate, síall good. I will definitely pick up a tub following this one, as itís versatile as hell. Random fact, but my grandma loves it too, and plans to use it for pie/ice cream. She doesnít like cold milk, but likes slushy milk (wut?) so she added a scoop to ~5 oz milk and semi-freezes it and has it as a post-dinner snack occasionally and loves it. Ergo, passes the old fart test. :thumbsup: Everybody has their go-to MRP... and guaranteed THIS will be that go-to Meal Replacement for everybody that makes the jump. $38 for 30 true servings of a MRP? I'm sold.
Side note: Since completing the log and finishing the tub they sent me, I haven't replaced my tub (coming soon with my next order) -- and daammn I miss it.
Again, I appreciate the generosity Controlled Labs and gang.
