got these pics from another thread because mine looks exactly like it. I got mine from tiger fitness and now I'm paranoid as fuk because my Apple Pie Craze (from bb.com) is labeled differently. TM after Craze, EXP date on side of the tub that is scratch-able.

Does your lot number on the back scratch off? If it does it's legit, if it doesn't its fake.

thats why you have to buy from bb.com you know its 100% legit. HOw much cheaper was it anyways on TF? I live in hawaii and have gotten screwed by other online comapnies and have friends who have gotten screwed. BB.com so far is the only guys who I trust online.

ya i only buy from this site or if i really need something I'll go to the nearest supplement store. I got a fake batch of oxy elite pro few years back. last time I bought from ebay or amazon. what a lot of people do is they buy caps and fill them with caffeine and sugar, put the caps in the bottle they just used, re seal the bottle. sell on ebay. happens all the time, and alot of people who haven't used the supplement before think it's the real deal.

The only way to know for sure is by snorting it.

I thought only Candy Grape tubs where found to be fake, I doubt they are faking the new tubs...

TM after Craze, EXP date on side of the tub that is scratch-able.This is definitely real. Marc definitely has real product. He was one of the first people to try that flavor. Its very unlikely that any of the Special Edition flavors are being counterfeited. We have added new security features to the product labels, changed to foil (as you can see in the logo) and for the Pineapple Passion Fruit we put the lot# on the bottom of the tub.

One of the advantages of the Special Edition flavors is that we are only making a limited amount and because we arent announcing the flavors too early no one can get a head start on trying to copy a label. Also, these new flavors are very unique making it really hard for it to be duplicated. Berry Lemonade and Grape could be faked by putting koolaid in a tub, Pineapple Passion Fruit cant.


yes, the counterfeit pre-workout industry is booming right now....It really is and I would never have believed it until we started trying to track down who was responsible etc. But these fakes arent being done by some random guy in a garage, they are being done on a massive scale.


Didn't realize how big of an issue this is, guess I'll have to be on the look outIts not as big an issue as it was a few months ago. We were able to stop one group doing it. We are still chasing down others but by removing a large amount of fakes off the market and introducing Special Editions plus the security changes to the label we think we are in a much better position to stop fakes.


I thought only Candy Grape tubs where found to be fake, I doubt they are faking the new tubs...It wasnt. It was the most common one by far but we did get a couple Berry Lemonade. It is unlikely that its the new stuff though.

James, I got some from bb.com just this afternoon, and it looks exactly the same. Same lot # and everything. Therefore I have to believe it's legit, of course, as Sldge has pointed out.
