Size is an advantage in many sports, but some athletes have a hard time gaining weight. You can only eat so much food, so we formulated Gold Standard Gainer with quality calories in a 2:1 ratio of carbohydrates to primarily isolate proteins. With good fats from flaxseed and chia seed, each serving weighs in at 770 calories to help you grow bigger and stronger when taken in conjunction with a well-planned diet and exercise program. Gold Standard Gainer raises the bar for weight gain performance.

Now for the drawbacks. I use a blender bottle because it is less of a hassle than using a blender. One thing that you should be made aware of is that it TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT TO MIX SMOOTHLY. You need to vigorously shake for at least a full minute in order for it to blend in a single scoop into a full size blender bottle filled to the top with water. I also own two blender bottles. One is a traditional wide style blender bottle, in which the gainer mixed without lumps...eventually. I also own a more slender version with a slightly different lid and a rubber grip on the side. For whatever reason, this gainer can't mix in this bottle at all, no matter how long I shook the bottle. The texture was like drinking luke warm wet cottage cheese.
The vanilla cream taste is accurate, however it kind of has a chalky aftertaste that is off-putting. Not the worst flavor I've ever had (looking at you, strawberry cream), but you've got to be a big fan of vanilla things to get a 10lb bag of this. I plan to get chocolate from now on.
