Macros, as a high protein gainer, were what got me to buy this. It's done the job. It gets only a 5 rating, however, because the mixability is abysmal. Anything short of a vitamix blender and you are chewing your drink while choking on the cookie bits and then a big chunk is always left half dry at the bottom of your bottle. I've never had a powder which had the ability to p- me off until this one

Bought this January 2019. Came in smelling like dirty gym socks. Noticed the expiration date April 2019. Is it supposed to expire so quickly? I have some BSN True Mass that I got back in 2016 that barely expires April 2019. Why did Bodybuilding.com send me a protein that was ready to expire? This is terrible Bodybuilding.com, this website used to be so much better.

I used UN Real Gains before initially aware because it was a product (I remember it being in a white container), Monica Brant had promoted. I purchased the 6.85-pound container, Vanilla Ice Cream & the flavor is decent. Mixes well in my Ninja Duo, no clumps, no grit. I have not yet tried any other flavors & honestly could not tell you the difference in taste from before over now because it has been some years ago. My only dislike would be that it came in a bag, not in the bucket container which would have been my preference & choice for the size. The picture on the site should reflect that. But no complaints about the product itself. I specifically like the fact it does not add creatine or multivitamins, which I tend to find in other weight gainers. I personally like the option to add buffered creatine as I see fit, & stay away from multi-vitamins. I also like the amount of protein per serving. Pretty pleased with the product so far. I can see myself making another purchase of the same in the future with the variant being size.

I went for the strawberry flavor on my initial purchase. I have to say the first thing I loved about it was the size of the scoop lol. Instead of the usual shovel you get with weight gain products it was a REGULAR size even SMALL scoop....and no you don't need to use 10 per serving just 3 1/2. The strawberry was very mild but the banana has more flavor in it. The thing that I like is that it mixes very thin...I hate those thick yogurt like supplements with a passion! Okay it doesn't have the crazy calories that a lot of gainers claim - I say claim as I am sceptical of the counts they say are in each serving as I did not lose weight on switching from the Muscle Tech extreme to this - and I lose weight easily. I would recommend and will be continuing to buy for some time.

So I'm really loving all the products by universal . I normally drink other protein powders after my workout because I try and gain more weight. Some products I seen results over two/three months but with the one here the "Real gains " bruh I bought the 10 pound bag it lasted for a month I work out 4-5 times a week but only drink it right after my workout I always blend it up with milk taste ******* great no nasty after taste no bloating and I gained mass and weight in the one 10 pound bag that I bought so now I'm out and about to buy another one this is about to be my go to powder

Best bang for your buck!! While other gainers require you to consume 300g+ of powder to get 50g of protein, this produce is a high protein formula, only requiring you to consume 155g of powder for 53g protein! Meaning it's less likely to give you a bloated stomach ache. The tradeoff being that it contains a significantly lower amount of carbohydrates (about half as much on average) compared to most of the other gainers, so there are fewer calories per serving. So if you have a high metabolism like me, you will still need to "eat big". "Then why not drink 2 scoops of regular protein powder to get 50g of protein?" Because for the same or cheaper price this product will give you the 3-4x the amount of calories. I'm an on and off gym goer, and for years I've used this product and it's always helped me bulk back up when i havent hit the gym in a while.

After I tried the Cookies & Cream flavor, this became my go to weight gainer. It is BY FAR the best flavor. Chocolate Ice Cream tastes terrible, while Banana Ice Cream is moderate. Its a lot easier to chug a shake packed full of macros than to fit in meal #6. Keep on keepin on Universal!!!

This is a great product. I started taking this about three weeks ago between 2 and 3 times a week. Starting after wrestling season at about 157, I gained 10 pounds in the first week of using this (this can also be attributed to the start of bulking season). I'm now up to 169, with very minimal use of this product. It does its job effectively, the taste is great as long as you shake it up a bunch, and I'll definitely purchase this in the future. Great value and amount of mass gainer for the price.

I've given this gainer a try for a month and taken according to its intended use at in between of meals and bedtime for a serving of 3-1/2 scoops in place of my whey protein. I have had great results. I can't get in a 3 meals a day like I should but having this has made my workouts productive and recovery much faster. I have noticed strength gains with not much weight increase in a month maybe a pound heavier than before my cycle on this stuff but it comes and goes. Tastes even better when addded to make shakes.
