    Default Golden Gains.

    Picked up some Golden Gains for post workout use only. I had some questions about the taste. It comes off as almost sour. I think maybe I used to much water. I found my self chewing what was in the bottom of the cup which sounds gross but I kinda liked it lol. I could taste a hint of apple also. So is the sour taste that hits you first normal? I don't mind the taste at all because I know whats in the product.

    I get more sweet than sour.

    1) Shake your tub.
    2) Shake your shaker before every sip to cause it to mix up.
    3) Use cold water and play with water. I like it in 24-25 OZ. Some people like more, some people like less.

    Yeah I constantly re-shake every couple of sips just to keep it mixed up. For me, 26oz of cold water is perfect. My mother on the other hand likes more water. I'm sure if you play with it, you will find the right combo. And don't forget all of Anaconda's recipes for bars, muffins, pan*****, waffles, etc.

    Hmm mine is way sour.. not sweet at all. I use a hand held blender to mix mine. I should check the container for an expiration date lol. Maybe I didnt use enough water.. no where close to 26 oz.. more like 12-14 oz of water when I did it.. put in some ice with it and ground it up.

    Yeah I would double the water... I wouldn't use less than 24oz. I think there's a big difference in taste based on the amound (and temperature) of water. lol

    OK, I have a workout in about an hour and will double the water this time to see if it helps. I will shake the container also but I think shipping it probably shook it pretty good

    It's a very Oat and Apple flavor for me, not super sweet (there's only one gram of sugar in it)... It's very pleasant tasting for me... which is good because I despise sour apple anything.

    yeah, 24 ounces is perfect. also no need for a blender. just add the powder to the water and shake a few times. make sure the powder goes into the water instead of vice versa.

    You guys should make a 5lb container of GGs so it doesn't take up my whole kitchen. I usually have 3 tubs sitting around.

    I have a shaker at work but not at home. The hand blender is so easy and I like it because it crushes up the already crushed ice so taht its very fine and makes the drink super cold.


    My hand blender.. I love it...

    I'd rather see an all natural version.

    Thats what she said :P


    --I like my GG in about 20oz of water, and about 4 large ice cubes - I prefer the semi-gritty texture which is why I don't use as much water
