The last time I used this product was in 2014. I see they've changed the label since then. But it looks like they're still making disingenuous claims. Like, 5000 calories? Sure, if you mix one third of the jug with 1 gallon of whole milk. Who is going to drink all that in one day? And then they say it contains "anabolics" like Deer Antler and Yohimbe. LOL, you call those real anabolics? And even if that stuff is beneficial, do you really think they'd add enough of it to make a difference? It reminds me of bottled ice teas saying they contain ginkgo biloba or pomegranate, but the amount they give you is so miniscule it ain't gonna accomplish anything. My other complaint about this product is the cheap carbs. They act like glucose is high-tech, LOL. And then they say it contains "milk solids" for protein. OK, but is it whey or casein? And if it's whey, what KIND of whey? Isolate, concentrate, or what? Why can't they tell us? Frankly, I think the main reason people buy this stuff is the whole "Russian" allure, like as if it contains some super-secret Russian steroids or something, LOL. I mean come on, there are MUCH better products out there. For approximately the same price per pound, you could get Ultimate Nutrition Iso Mass Xtreme Gainer, which has MUCH better ingredients. Or MHP Up Your Mass, which contains complex carbs from oats and barley.....not cheap glucose.

Do not waste your money on this product. This product is now absolutely horrible. It was good before they changed the formula. They took out & lowered some vitamins and minerals. They also lowered the protein & calorie content. It was called Russian Bear 5000 because when mixed as directed you got 5000 calories per gallon of whole milk when mixed with 5 scoops. I usually got 4 to 5 gallons from one container. You got 184 or so grams of protein mostly from egg whites & healthy fats from coconut mcts. There was no added sugar & no fat - it even contained molybdenum. When used as directed you'd have a gallon of the stuff ready made so it was easy to just drink a cup of it or make a shake or even pancakes or bread with it. It was even good with fat free milk, coconut, or almond milk. It was a great product. Now you don't get 5000 calories, you don't get 184 gms of protein, you don't get molybdenum & other stuff. They almost completely changed the formula of something that worked for over 20 years. Now its just powder...that makes you pee for some reason. I actually just threw 2 sealed canisters in the trash along with a half full one. They f@!%ed up. I recommended it before, but not anymore. I told them this on their website too...shame on you vitol...shame!

Don't know what happen to the taste but it tastes much different then it did before. Has an awful taste. Does not have the Chocolate Nestle Quik taste anymore. Don't know if I had a bad batch but all 6 jugs that I bought all had that awful taste to it. It was truly disappointing. What happen Russian Bear 5000.. did yall change the formula or something? Anybody else had this problem with the Ice Cream Chocolate flavor????

Taking this product as directed, you'd go through a tub every 21 days. It directs you to add three scoops to a gallon of whole milk and drink it throughout the week. No doubt that is going to add some mass to your body; however you might as will do the GOMAD challenge and save some money. I used it as a post workout drink. It has a good amount of protein and a few other ingredients I like such as the tribulus terrestris. I'd put about 3/4 scoop into my cup. The taste is phenomenal, like drinking the milk after a bowl of Cocoa Krispies. I don't think this product is a waste of money. If you are looking for a serious weight gainer though, there are better out there.
