    Hey everyone:

    I am going to run out of PP today. I've been using Dymatize Elite but want to try something new. I ordered some PVL online in anticipation of running out, but it's not going to get here for another week. Thus, I have no choice but to buy small container of some PP to get me through the next 7 days.

    I like to order PP online because it's cheaper and rarely buy in-store, but will do a store run today after work.

    It seems like I only see the better PP online - never in a store. Does anyone know if you can buy PVL at GNC, etc? Is there another good brand that I could get in GNC, Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe?

    Thanks!!!!!

    I don't know about good brands at GNC, but whatever you do don't buy Isopure!! That is what I bought from there and it is disgusting!

    i think Vitamin Shoppe has Whey Gourmet or PVL. Can't remember which.

    EDIT: They also have Syntrax (Syntrex?) Nectar. Fruity flavor PP. Not shake like. It's ok.

    Vitamin Shoppe has Dymatize, but only certain flavors. I don't think they have PVL Whey Gourmet. I do think they have Syntrax Nectar (as kiwi said) because they gave me a sample. They also have Champion Whey which I think is decent, but I have seen some comments here from people who didn't like it. I tried chocolate.

    I think GNC might have Whey Gourmet - you could call and ask them :shrug:

    GNC is actually a decent supplement shop (albiet they are grossly overpriced)...but they carry just about every line...and what they DON'T have in stock, they claim they will order and have it for you the next day.

    I use so many powders it's ridiculous...but i have their gold card so sometimes if i am lazy and want my powder NOW, i will buy from them...most recently i bought Vyotech's ORYX goat whey.....it only comes in vanilla and choc and it is pretty decent. not out of this world, but it's good and easily digestible and supposedly is the 'perfect protein'

    Isopure Zero (chocolate) is one of my faves EVER!!!

    They also have a new one called "Amplify Smoothie" I think that is :drool: X 10. Tastes like creamy chocolate milk. :yum:

    The Amplify from GNC is good. The Mint Chocolate is my favorite!

    Okay, I'm hijacking the thread, just how many containers of pp do you all have? I have 3 open here at work and I have 8 opened containers at home. Have my favorites of course but dip into the others occasionally which is why there are all opened.

    I get the Amplify by GNC. The chocolate, cookies n cream , and the chocolate mint are very good.

    When I could drink it, GNC was just fine. If you go to VS website, they have a whole array of PP, just about anything you want to chose from.

    Vitaminn Shoppe, Trader Joe's...

    Elite Whey French Vanilla mixes easily - great with frozen berries or frozen banana.

    We bought a box with a variety of flavors...it had vanilla, strawberries n' cream, dreamsicle, and peanut butter chocolate. The only one I can stand is the PB choc with my CC and PB as my last meal of the day. I have strange taste buds, so it might be just me?? :(
