Any major advantages/disadvantages between these two?

I've been using Pronom23 for a good few tubs now and really quite like it, however I can get a 2.2KG (4.8lbs) tub of BigBlend 10 (~$17) cheaper than the Pronom Equivalent.

(MuscleTech Phase8 and Cellucor come in at roughly the same price as Pronom)

i don't think you're going wrong with either

between these 2 I'd go with the more affordable at any given time

This was my thoughts exactly. Protein (branded) is considerably more expensive in the UK than the US so it's nice to make a saving wherever possible.

Of those listed, PROnom 23.

Pronom for me

taste/texture is my favorite thing about pronom :)


Have you ever added roasted peanut flour / PB2 to the pronom?

Some other things I have tried more recent cardamom and garam marsala, Almond-Coconut Milk Blend and once even added the CCB in with grits and vanilla almond milk.

Enjoy both of those, comes down to cost and taste preference; Big Blend has a few more flavor choices.

PROnom has third party testing to prove that the protein content is not full of fillers/spiked :)

Thanks for a mix of feedback :)

I've gone ahead with a middle-ground option and ordered a smaller tub of BigBlend to give it a try. It'll only last a couple of weeks at most so if I don't enjoy it I'll order another tub of Pronom

I've had both and, I wanted to give away big blend about half way through the tub. Pronom is tasty one of the better vanillas on the market.

Chocolate only and all the way personally.

CCB is by far the nicest protein powder I've had but if I can save what is effectively 20-25% per tub buying BigBlend, so long as it's drinkable I'm happy with that.

Keep in mind, PROnom is all top quality dairy sourced protein as well

plain... dafuq O.o

I like it with garlic/herbs in it even minced pancetta/bacon or something

that's like eating a dry baked potato with nothing on it :\

No, they have more flavor raw then cooked in this instance. As well different texture.

I eat balut, escargot and caviar ontop of fresh raw oysters - that gross you out? :D

Balut...gnarly. I'm filipino (born there but raised in the US) and I can't bring myself to ever try that srs

I thought we had similar taste buds. Cannot look at you the same now.

Will never eat balls from any animal.

Never had Big Blend, but have really enjoyed both flavors of Pronom. Filler free and great taste/profile is a no brainer for me.
