Horrible Supplements


#1

Just curious what are some of the worst tasting supplements you have tried, preferably pre-made (liquid form)


#2

rice protein. Bleurgh!


#3

Xpand by Dymatize, circa 2010.

A preworkout that tasted like battery acid and wasp stingers. Nope.


#4

Nothing beats drinking unflavored BCAA’s, nothing…


#5

you’ve clearly never had rice protein


#6

I had some junk a guy I knew was trying to sell- pure, unflavored whey protein powder with no additives or flavorings. It clumped into chunks and had a bitterness/burnt hair taste that clung to your mouth like a fresh coat of paint.


#7

Pea protein! Makes you feel great, tastes like… well…I can’t really say thay I have ever tasted anything like it :confounded:


#8

Pea protein. Vile muck.


#9

All these just sounds like horrible ideas to begin with


#10

I did this once, tasted like Burnt tires.


#11

I’ve never tried rice protein or pea protein, but unflavored BCAA’s are the worst I’ve ever tried.


#12

I once combined Superfood and Mag-10 so…


#13

Unflavoured hydrolised whey, makes me heave just thinking about it.


#14

Seconded!


#15

Or creatine


#16

I have some in the cabinet, organic even. Decided I didn’t want muscles THAT bad. :laughing:


#17

@IronAndMetal @ChickenLittle

The only way I could make this palatable was to add cocoa powder, I tried every thing to mask the taste and this is the only thing that balanced it out.


#18

I’ve no clue what burnt hair tastes like… Must be bad.


#19

Cocoa powder…never thought of that. I kept trying to add various sweetners (aspartame, etc).

Maybe @ChickenLittle will want muscles that badly now! hehe


#20

I did the same, tried lots of mixtures, worst one was in pure orange juice. Cocoa works I promise!
