I just recently bought this and it is actually really good, I'm a skinny guy and I'm hoping this can get me some gains in the gym. I expected the vanilla to be nasty, but it is amazing, it kinda tastes like melted vanilla icecream !

I ordered this product for after I had my tonsillectomy. With needed rest and the inability to eat solid foods while recovering, I anticipated I might lose weight. I used this product for a good 3 weeks after my surgery and it greatly helped me maintain my weight. I probably only lost about 2-5 pounds total (which is well below what most adults lose after a tonsillectomy) and I didn't notice a significant reduction in muscle, if any. Flavor was great and blended well in a blender. Of course, the texture/flavor was very slightly artificial. I really did enjoy the product though, and continuously looked forward to my smoothies during a difficult recovery. For people just looking to gain mass while still able to eat solid foods as well, this would be a great supplement, too. Would definitely order again!

Ive been using this protein for a while, I usually get chocolate, but this time i followed the recommendations of another reviewer and got strawberry.... Terrible, terrible, terrible mistake. It tastes like nasty cough syrup. I drank a serving two hours ago and im still sick to my stomach. Every time I get up I feel like I have to throw up. I've never had this problem with the chocolate flavor, I am 100% going to return this and demand a refund/exchange. Please, please avoid strawberry by all means necessary.

Although this Mass Gainer mixes well, the taste is Absolutely horrible. I don't know if I got a bad bag but the powder taste chalky. I've tried with water, with milk, mixed with fruit but no good. I do not recommend this product at all.

I gained 3-4kg in the first month using this mass even though my body is really hard to gain weight. It is hard to consume the whole 1200 calories serving at once but you can divide it by half and take it separately. Indeed, I found this way is more efficient to me than take the whole serving at once. Btw, the chocolate flavor is pretty delicious for a weight gainer product, it's not too sweet!

I have ordered this while doing Jay Cutler's living large workout and have seen amazing results. I have had tons of trouble gaining weight during workouts when bulking and have seen great results in the last month while drinking 1 serving of this mass gainer a day. Yes it is hard to drink sometimes but the flavor is more than tolerable and the results speak for themselves.

You can’t use it with shaker, only with electric mixer. You can’t dissolve in water using your protein shaker.

This is the best tasting powder I’ve ever had! I’m almost done with my first 12 lb bag and another is on its way. I’m a Monday through Friday lifter and those are the only days I take this. I’m one of the few looking to gain weight and not lose it. I started this bag at 198 lbs and three quarters of the way though it I’m up to 209. I have a personal goal to get to 225 lbs and I don’t think it’ll be a problem with this powder.

This is the second time I ordered 12lb serious mass, it is easily dissolved in water and it tastes great. I used it three times a day, each time 1/2 scoop, and I gained 8-9kg in less than 2 months. I suggest it to anyone who wants to get weight.

Tastes great but (and its a big one) The protein types in this product are inferior ! No protein isolates and no micellar casein which is poor.. i would opt for the signature mass gainer which has much better formula!

Directions For Serious Mass:

Add two heaping scoops of Serious Mass to a blender filled with 24 oz (710 mL) of water. Blend for 45-60 seconds. Then add a few ice cubes and, if desired, other calorie-contributing ingredients and blend for an additional 30-45 seconds.

Tips: Mixing two scoops of Serious Mass with 24 oz (710 mL) of nonfat or low fat milk instead of water will give you a thicker, creamier, higher-calorie shake. New users may find if beneficial to begin with 1/2 of a serving daily for the first week and then gradually increase to 1 or more full servings several times a day.

Serious Mass is a substantial weight-gain supplement that can be used to feed serious calorie needs in a variety of different ways.

Between Meals: Drink 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass between meals to maintain positive nitrogen balance and support a high-calorie diet. Post-Workout: Begin drinking 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass 30-45 minutes following exercise to support maximum recovery. Before Bed: Drink 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass about 45-60 minutes before bed to provide nutrients to recovering muscle throughout the night.

Note: For best results use Serious Mass combined with intense weight training (3-5 times per week) and a sensible whole foods diet. Also, keep in mind that sufficient recovery between workouts impacts your ability to gain lean mass. Allowing at least 48 hours between workouts involving the same body parts is recommended.

Warnings: Keep out of reach of children. Do not take this product if you are pregnant or nursing a baby. Check with a qualified healthcare professional before using this product if you are under 18 years of age or if you have any known or suspected medical condition(s) including diabetes, hypoglycemia, and/or if you are taking any prescription or OTC medication(s).
