Hot Stuff...1990's

Am I the only one who remembers this stuff? I remember Steve Brisbos used to do ads for them.

Oh yeah! I used to work at GNC during high school in the 90’s - it was still for sale then, I am trying to remember what it tasted like, I don’t remember it being gross…but the kicker was all the trash they claimed to throw in there - smilax, orazynol, ox bile, orchic powder.

I remember it was rumored that in the 80’s they got busted for putting methyltest in it.

apparently they still make it…

I remember it. The original stuff had some illegal products in it, then it got pulled and reformulated.

They also marketed “Steroid Replacement Packs.”
