    Someone on reddit has offered to test people's whey samples sent to him. I'm looking forward to where this topic goes. :thumbsup:

    I did the microwave test on some old product I bought from them. It's kinda scary when you see real whey turn into a coagulated ball and what I thought was whey just turn into a frothy mess.

    Damn. Good thing I only bought one tub of APW. Guess it's time to buy up some protein off SlickDeals.

    For what it's worth Google Wallet refunded all my monies today. Apparently they no longer do business with this vendor. I wonder if you incur Google's wrath a bunch of driver-less cars show up at your doorstep, like in Maximum Overdrive?

    I most recently bought 2x 2lb tubs of Optimum Nutrition's egg-based protein powder...the taste is pretty disappointing but it seems to be a great protein otherwise.

    (I still have whey protein too...just wanted to try out the egg-based stuff)
