    Where can I buy XF Ultra Peptide (Cinnamon Roll flavour) in the UK?

    I'm dying to get my hands on this stuff but I've searched everywhere online and it's nowhere to be found. Does anyone know where I can buy it? If not, what would be the second best cinnamon roll flavoured protein powder out there? Thanks. P.s. Just to add, I'm not actually 50 years old (I'm 19!). Does anyone know how I can change that? Thanks again!

    You’ll do well, I think XF folded a year or so back

    Wow, really? Man, that sucks. It's a real shame that I'll never get to experience their legendary flavours. Well in that case, what other brand would come closest to XF's Cinnamon Bun in terms of taste?

    I wonder if that was when i picked up 8 tubs on discount. I think it was May or June of last year. If they did shut down that's a huge loss.

    I’m not sure, sorry. I got through 2 tubs of Gaspari’s cinnamon roll a few years back and I can’t touch that flavour now as I’m sick of it.

    BSN do one I think in their Syntha 6 line but it’s not easy/cheap to get hold of here

    From my research, I found that the best brands for a cinnamon roll flavoured protein(other than XF) were AI Sports (sadly, I think this was also discontinued), Controlled Labs PROmore (frosted cinnamon bun), Trutein (I have this one but it's not really an authentic cinnamon roll flavour, tastes mostly of just cinnamon), Dymatise Iso 100, another one that I can't quite remember the name of, and (the one that you've just mentioned) Syntha 6.

    bb.com had the XF UP 2.0 at an absolutely unheard of 50% off in late summer of 2017. Like, maybe around September 2017. It was on the way out at that point.

    I bought 10 tubs and would have bought more but we were moving in like a month. Had I known that was it, I would have bought 30, no joke. All strawberry

    At least three of those are discontinued

    I know, but I was hoping that on the off chance someone from here that's tried them all could jump in and share their experiences...Potentially saving me my money and time just in case they don't end up being too great.

    Wow, that's just sad. I couldn't have picked a better time! I'm still surprised that XF went out of business, especially since many (most?) people considered them to be the absolute best tasting protein powders. It's a shame they never became very popular.

    I got mine straight from Dave, I think there was a newsletter or something. All mine were mint chocolate, freaking love that flavor. Their strawberry tho, hands down my favorite out of any brand. Just insane flavor.

    Protein powder has an incredibly slim profit margin. Companies like XF which produce a superior product but don't sell things like hormone boosters to actually make money have a rough go.

    As far as cinnamon, have you tried PES Select? It's not a direct comparison, but their snickerdoodle is great tasting. Controlled Labs ProMore snicerdoodle is also delicious if you can find some.

    Taste is wholly subjective though so it’s a largely pointless endeavour
