    100% keep the comments coming.

    I've gone with My Protein, more often than not. But I'm going to try Inside Nutrition, salted caramel. Thanks for the heads up and code.

    Dealz, the odd time, have a discount on the ON bars. Thought they tasted horrible but could have been the batch.

    the protein bars are awful you're not wrong, I've totally given up on bars lately the price is going up and the quality is dropping i think

    the salted caramel is lovely btw and ive also had banana and strawberry and the choc hazelnut which is just like Nutella, drop of water and ice and blend them

    Current prices, doesn't include delivery. Other brands are available.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,173 ✭✭✭VonLuck


    Useful! Would also be interesting how they compare with price per gram of protein as they're not all the same quality.



  • Registered Users Posts: 38,970 ✭✭✭✭Mellor


    Generally the isolates or hydrolised wheys have higher protein content, but are not as good in terms of $$ value.

    Got my salted caramel and was very impressed. Two free little sachets included with the package. Very impressed. Will definitely order again. Thanks for the heads up 💪👍

    I got 2kg of the vanilla in their Halloween sale. It very nice. I mix it with porridge or just with water and ice in a shake.

    Great to see an Irish Company competing with the "Big Guys" with a similar or cheaper price.

    Will myprotein have a black Friday sale?

    Have to imagine Irish sales have dropped off a cliff this year.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,640 ✭✭✭antimatterx


    Hopefully. If so and it's decent it's time to stock up



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,150 ✭✭✭holdfast


    I used to buy PhD a few years back. But they changed the taste and i havent found. I have tried ROS, ON and myprotien. But they are bearable but not great. I know its is subjective but what do you think is nice tasting ? I am a chocolate - chocolate mint - banana type of guy

    Anyone try Protein Works?

    I'm not vegan, but usually get the vegan one as it seems to 'agree' a lot better with me. Mixes really well the cookies and cream is great for overnight oats.

    Con: A bit pricier.

    Protein is an essential part of our diet, and the choices we make regarding its sources can have a significant impact on our nutrition. If you're in search of a reliable and high-quality protein source, organic whey protein is definitely worth considering. What makes this kind protein stand out is its purity and nutritional value. It's derived from organic milk, ensuring that you're getting a clean and wholesome source of protein without the additives and chemicals often found in other products. This makes it an excellent choice for those who are conscious about the quality of their nutrition.

    Grand, but that's mad money. When I win the Lotto I might consider it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,539 ✭✭✭OmegaGene


    lets overlook the insane pricing of the product for a second, lets think about shipping and then customs from florida usa how would that make sense for anyone in ireland to purchase that ?

    if i want organic protein i will fry up some beef liver 500g for 3 euro from the butcher

    Very impressed with IN - next day delivery, with DPD, at a better price. I'll keep an eye on MP/ Bulk as I'm not too fussy on flavour (unlike herself), but I think they'll be the default option.

    me too, pleasant surprise

    I was not too excited about the small number of servings in bubblegum flavours for €15.

    Yesterday Bulk Powders had a Black Friday banner across their website (with little if any discount on Pure Whey), and it was a similar story on My Protein Impact Whey.

    Since yesterday was not Black Friday, it was just the date Amazon chose to start their sales event early, hopefully come Black Friday November 24 or the following Cyber Monday we will see real discounts from both providers.

    Did any of you order last year, or can you remember how much of a discount was offered by either?

    The additional 20% off code 'black' for the Irish My Protein website has started working. Go buy a year of Impact Whey at €88.79 per 5kg as that seems as often as these prices come around.

    Best value I have found recently in terms of protein density, only beaten now by the same product, on their German website and by only ~20c per protein kg. UK paying €94.11 on promotion as of yesterday.

    Hi, want to stock up on protein, all the 5kg protein are coming in around the same price, not sure if they've just inflated the prices before they've put the discount on best I can find

    Protein works 4kg 70euro

    Bulk power 5kg 106 ☹️

    Inside nutrition Around 125 for 5kg before 25% off, so nothing great as far as i can see

    If anyone can find a good deal, let me know, thanks

    Looking to get 5kg+



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,364 ✭✭✭franglan


    Yep in same boat. Not great at all



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,256 ✭✭✭Macy0161


    €89 for 5kg on MP - that's the best price I've seen Whey there outside of the limited editions for a good while.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,539 ✭✭✭OmegaGene


    they are good deals compared to the prices we have been seeing in the last 18-24 months €16.87 per kg with next day delivery is decent at the moment, my protein rarely run good sales these days and when they do it is a lower end protein blend or flavour they can't shift

    With the comparison, I'm not that inclined to go that big stocking up. Was super impressed with IN next day delivery rather than a week and potentially fastway roulette with the UK suppliers.



  • Registered Users Posts: 917 ✭✭✭fatbhoy


    Did anyone else notice the cheap trick MP have pulled for Black Friday? They are giving 25% off now, but the hiked up the prices big time in the last few days. Ordinary whey was 11-something for I think .5kg, now it's basically 14. These protein companies are really taking the p1ss. I remember only a few years ago MP/Bulk were selling ordinary whey for about €50 for 5kg if you had a discount code, and there were loads of those codes floating around. Now it's 110/120 for 5kgs.
