I have been using hurricane extreme for 2 months and already can tell there have been significant gains in my overall strength and performance. I do not want, or have the space to accomodate 5 different bags of proteins and supplements in their raw form and to be honest, do not have the time available to sit there mixing my own complete blend every day. Hurricane provides everything I need in one hit, from one bag! The product mixes really well and the taste is not spectacular but I have not come to expect a winfall in this area...at the end of the day, if you want a milkshake, go to MacDonalds. If you want to build muscle and strength, get Hurrican Extreme!Goes Well With:ice cubes & virgin cocnut oil in a blender! (choc & mint flavour at least)

Tastes like you're swallowing a mouthful of chemicals! Who ever decided that's what strawberry and cream tasted like must of eaten some bad ones!!! Taste aside it's very effective and helps your progress and is a massive help to a good diet. Would have 5* if it didn't taste like glaxosmithklien's slops tray.

Hurricane Extreme is not the best tasting but from an effectiveness point of view it seems to work very well.

Excellent product. I have been using impact whey for a year but felt like a change so tried the hurricane range. I feel more fuelled pre workout and better recovered post workout when using hurricane extreme. Taste wise-not as bad as some make out! Great delivery service- would always recommend my protein!
I ordered this in strawberries and cream flavour. It arrived the very next day. It tastes great, mixes really well and is a great product. I would definitely get this again.

Been using Hurricane XS for a while now and its been working well, helped me put on some gains which had been difficult before.. I really like the Hurrican Extreme, but compared to XS there is a noticeable difference in the taste, it's seems a bit more bitter (Strawberry Creme). I would reccomend this if you a taking for gains and are not bothered about the taste. If you're fussy about the taste then I would recommend XS instead.
This is a good all in one supplement.Convinient to use as it`s all in one and mixes well with low fat milk and water.I have found it gives me more energy and quicker recovery time when using this.Although at first it comes across as expensive as an all in one it`s worth the money and i will be ordering again.At the end of the day i`m old school and believe you get what you pay for. My second order with my protein and won`t be the last.On my first order i did not notice the discount code for a first time customer,would of been nice if MyProtein would of added for me.Deliver was quick with updated Emails infoming me of the de livery stage.On my second order there was damage to my parcel,it looked like that somebody (the courier) had tried to get a ``nose`` as to what was in the box. Overall impressed Goes Well With:Tribulas Pro.Low fat milk and water.A good challenging workout
Highly recommended product! High quality, gives energy, mixing good. The taste is not the best (choc-mint) but who cares......the results are more important for me! Good stuff!

When I bought this I wasn't sure if it was the right choice as I was used to hurricane xs which I always thought was a great product, I wasn't sure if hurricane extreme was worth the money but now I've had it for a few weeks I have noticeably gained extra size and strength! And ignore what some people say about the taste, it's really not that bad I have had a lot worse. It's not the best with water so I have it with milk but if you really don't wana use milk for whatever reason, try koko milk, coconut milk that has next to no fat in it and is full of calcium and vitamins, much better. Goes Well With:Milk, koko milk, almond milk, soya milk.
Avoid this product if you are looking for a good tasting protein shake. I got strawberry cream flavor and it tastes awful. Maybe it is the amino acids that they put in there. My advice is to get hurricane xs and optionally BCAA tablets. Tastes much better and the effectiveness is similar. Goes Well With:tastes slightly better with water! avoid milk!

Strawberry Cream - Absolutely disgusting taste! Avoid like the plague! Hopefully other flavours are better!
Nice with milk or water. Easy mixing. Good solid product.
I've been using the hurricane mixes for 3 years now. I started with Hurricane Evo, then moved to Hurricane XS and am now using Hurricane Extreme. I have to say this has given me the best results out of the 3, perfect megamix. The chocolate taste is not bad at all - just tastes like cold cocoa... If you can't stomach this I don't know how you'd manage with other protein shakes. After drinking the Hurricane XS this is a pleasure to drink, mixes perfectly as well (the XS variety is usually quite grainy and doesn't mix very well even with a mixing ball in the bottle). No complaints with this product whatsoever, will definitely be ordering this again.Goes Well With:Water

First of all I HATE it when people rate the supplement on taste! Who cares?! It's the results. The taste is fine, different to your conventional shake but it's far better quality when ingrediants are concerned. You will see more results taking this than regular whey. It has everything you could possibly need pre and post workout. Your strength and size will increase as well as a faster recovery rate. It may be a bit pricey but compared to other all in one supplements but it's worth it. Suppose it depends on what you want from training. As a rugby player this helped me a lot! Just annoyed that I changed to try something else. I will buy 2 bags next time and up the intake to 3x100g shakes a day. Definitly expecting good gains from that. Everyone get it! Goes Well With:Water or Milk. Preferably milk (better taste and more protein)
Good value for money and mixes well, but the taste ain't great. But you don't really buy protein shake for the taste but it does help.
Good product, did feel the benefit of using it and the macros in it are great but, having used Hurricane Evo and XS in the past, this one is clearly the worst tasting. Not great all. In future i'll use one of the other Hurricane varieties.
Great product great value for money.
I think you guys on here have all been privileged with My Protein tastes - I've tasted far worse protein than this before. I was expecting to heave from it. Don't get me wrong its not like the XS for taste, but certainly easy to get down and nowhere near as bad as a lot of these reviews make out. As for actual results (the reason why we take them in the first place) I can't judge as just begun taking it. Hoping for a step up from the XS which I've always had good results from.Goes Well With:water or milk - standard!
Great all in one supplement with the things I needed inside it, would recommend this supplement to anyone!Goes Well With:Milk
Good price, feel the effects after a couple of weeks, the taste isn't the best in the world but easily drinkable as it mixes well. Would definitely recommend giving it a try
As a supplement user I have always stuck to just using whey protein however I fancied a change, and this protein was definitely worth the money and I feel it has made a noticeable difference. However it is not the best tasting on the market!Goes Well With:Milk
Went for a change from impact protein and was advised to give this a shot. Have been taking it for a week now and havent noticed much difference. Will stick with it though as there are no miracle potion out there train hard and eat clean. The one noticable difference so far is taste. The jump in taste from impact to hurricane is huge. I bought the same flavour and the taste is massively different. Hard to get down, but again, stick with it and see what happens. Nobody said it was going to be easy! Buy it, give it a shot.
This is horrible! Usually get Hurricane XS which is far better for taste. Just don't get this wouldn't even wash it down my drains. Terrible!
The overall taste is good but it is far too sweet. It's needs less sweetener it in! Goes Well With:Milk
I bought this Hurricane Extreme by mistake as I usually get Hurricane XS. This tastes far worse and is twice the price. I'm hoping to see some gains but I've not been using it for long so I will have to wait. It's unlikely I shall get it again due to the price.
Hurricane Extreme helps with instant gains. Recommended!
Don't quite know what it is in this Hurricane Extreme that works for me, but the fact is it does work! Training hard and diet is important, but this has definitely given me the edge and is helping the results show on a week to week basis rather than a month to month basis. Also, the taste seems to have improved a lot since last time I ordered it, so if you're put off my the 'bad taste' reviews check their age.
I have been using this Hurricane Extreme for a little over a week now, switching from another brand of all-in-one. Whilst the taste is far from ideal and it mixes a bit weird, it works better than anything I have tried previously. Also all other previous products have given me serious wind and often dodgy guts all round, even though they tasted great. If you are a fan of all in ones, I would say stop taking whatever one you're on and switch to this. Strawberry flavour is the one I have and you have to be just as up for drinking this as you do to bench press 100kg. However, it's all about the results and this product is top draw and I've tried them all.Goes Well With:Water or milk
I stacked one pouch of this Hurricane Extreme with T-matrix over the course of 3 and a bit weeks. In terms of value for money it was excellent, the number of servings for the cash was a relief (I find that I run out of many similar products in 2 weeks). To be honest, it tasted awful. At times it was a struggle to get it down. I am however very glad I persisted. Over the three weeks with a robust weight regime (3 sets of 5 at 70%, 3 sets of 3 at 80% and 3 sets of 1 at 100% mixed with active c.v. recovery to increase blood flow). I added just under 10kg of body mass and a good 30% to each of my lifts, and 50% to my squat. Provided you can stomach the taste, I thoroughly recommend this product.
I am half way through my second pouch of hurricane extreme, I have always found it hard to put on muscle size, this stuff is the best I have ever tried. I am getting the muscle size in all the right places, I have been off with an operation for a few months. I wanted something that will kick start the gains and strength I need when I started back, the taste well it is ok, but if you get gains and strength who cares, I followed the 2 serving a day, great all in oneGoes Well With:Water lol
I thought I would purchase Hurricane Extreme after finishing my Hurricane XS to see what the differences are. At the moment the only difference I can tell is the taste! This is much worse. However I am only in my first week of using this product so hopefully in a few weeks time I will be able to recognise some difference in my performance and body.
Hurricane Extreme is very good, I've not quite finished but I will be ordering more. I received good, speedy delivery.Goes Well With:an addition to a healthy breakfast and dinner
Been training for about 3 months now, bought the original Hurricane Pro before this product and decided to buy this one as it was on offer a week or so ago. I bought it and all was well, apart from the taste, I literally have to force it down myself just to drink the stuff... I got Chocolate Smooth but honestly, I'm not too sure what 'taste' it was it was that bad. At first I thought I was overreacting so I gave a bit to some of my gym buddies to try and they all agreed; single-handedly the worst tasting substance ever but, and it is a big but, I have noticed visable gains from this product. I drink 500ml of water with 2-3 heaped scoops about 2 times a day. Pre-workout and post-workout and the gains have been very noticable. So if you can honestly down 500ml of water/milk without tasting the product go for it! It is seriously good stuff. (Apart from the horrendous taste really lets this down.)Goes Well With:Water, Milk
Great product so far. Taste is ok to live with and once you are going hard in the gym the product makes a big difference to recovery. Will be buying this again.
I cannot fault Hurricane Extreme. I've seen huge increases whilst using it and the evidence is there to see! I've gone from a lowly 11 stone to 13.5 stone of muscle. To say I am happy is an understatement. There is no doubt that this works if you've got the focus in the gym. This is highly recommended!
I almost didn't buy this product after reading all the reviews of the bad taste. I received it today and just had my first shake. To me the taste is bloody great. I've tried many kinds of proteins in my life. This one's taste is up there with the rest. I bought the Smooth chocolate. It isn't a restaurant shake, but for a protein shake it is bloody great. It also mixes well. I'll give a review about the results in a month or two. Good luck
I started using this Hurricane Extreme product recently and I'm very impressed how easy it mixes with water, and goes down and more importantly stays down! I'm very impressed in how it helps recovery time, my muscles feel full.Goes Well With:Pulse V4
I got the Chocolate Mint flavour Hurricane Extreme. I am not a big fan of chocolate milkshakes, but after getting the strawberry one last time I thought I would try this one out. I have tried it a few times, it is nice and easy to mix and doesn't taste too bad. Very happy overall with it and the effect it is having. Would recommend to people who like chocolate.Goes Well With:It goes a lot better with milk.
Hurricane Extreme is a great product! It has a perfect combination of ingredients for building! Mint chocolate flavour is pretty bad tasting however but other than that it's a great product and reasonably priced! Goes Well With:Skimmed milk
This Hurricane Extreme is awesome as an all in one. It pumps you up nice and tight and gives you endless energy. The only down fall is the mixing, it tends to be a bit crunchy. Otherwise a great product highly recommended.Goes Well With:I take it with milk
Hurricane Extreme is quite good for the price.
Hurricane Extreme does everything you want it to do, apart from mix.Goes Well With:Milk in the evening
The taste of Hurricane Extreme is horrible and the bits make you gag... But the benefits it has given me are second to none! Amazing product and would highly recommend it. So what if it doesn't taste very nice, you don't buy a product for the taste you buy it for the benefits. And the benefits with this are great Goes Well With:Anything
I always use Hurricane Extreme before buying something new. I bought the strawberry flavour and used it for a month whilst going to the gym 3 times a week. After getting back into the flow of gym life I started to feel a difference as I progressed through the weights. Sometimes even 5kg a week. Found this was good for recovery and enabled me to get back to the physical job of shifting kegs the next day. Only thing I did notice was as creatine doesn't dissolve, your last mouthful is full of bits that makes the taste gritty. Other than that it's spot on. Flavours are really good too. I like to change mine in order to prevent getting bored. I've also started taking a shake at lunch time with added scotch oats to help keep me feeling full until the evening. Goes Well With:Water but you can use milk to make a thicker shake.
Hurricane Extreme tastes good and it works, but the creatine is clumped together in big stones so I had to break them up myself and mix it all together.Goes Well With:T-Matrix
I have only recently purchased this product but the first impressions given are very good. I mainly use the product with water with the recommended 100g and it tastes nice for a protein shake. I only started using the product a couple of weeks ago but I have already began to notice benefits aesthetically and also benefits in my muscular strength.
Having tried hard to find a good cost effective post recovery product, this is a great discovery! It has a lot of the nutrients that you need post workout and removes the necessity for supplementing and the resultant guess work with regular whey. Taste could be improved but I recommend the chocolate smooth.Goes Well With:Blended skimmed milk, almond butter and banana in your post work out shake
I have been training for three months now and using this product for two. I am running 30 miles a week and in the gym 3 x 1 hours sessions so my goal is not to shrink while doing so much cardio and build upper body strength and modest size gains. I am not one for eating every couple of hours so these shakes are ideal and taste fine (strawberry), not sure why people complain about the taste, you must be used to michelin star diets. The result have been excellent, I have maintained my body weight, reduced my body fat percenatge significantly and am starting to become ripped with increased definition and strength. Cutting out all the crap in my diet and paying as much attention to rest as you do working out also helps. All in all I feel it is a key ingredient to reaching my goals and I am just about to place another order.. Goes Well With:A strong mental attitude and discipline.
Well I'm 41 yrs old and I'm new to weight training, so from what I gather from other forums is I'm too old to gain muscle and lose weight! However I'm determined to do something about it and try and prove people wrong. I'm in week 3 of training and must say I ache quite a bit, so I have tried to add supplements to my regime. Hurricane Extreme sounds perfect with all of its ingredients and seems easier to take rather than buying separate. I had my first drink with water yesterday post training and it tastes awful, this morning I had my second shake with milk and it tastes like awful. If someone said to me to eat something awful and you'll build muscle, then I would eat it and not complain about the taste! My point is forget about the taste of supplements and review them on the results gained!Goes Well With:a good attitude and drinking it down in one go!
Good product , disgusting taste made my face implode with the first shake of the day, got some good gains from this product, probably wont use again due the taste taking like hell but may try a diff flavor than chocolate.
Tried the Hurricane Extreme choc mint flavour, and I personally think it tastes fine mixed with milk or water. Only been taking 2 scoops per serving and I'm seeing gains in size and I'm lifting more. Happy with this, would definitely buy again.
This Hurricane Extreme in my opinion is that its the best on the market its not that expensive, tastes ok and have great results. Goes Well With:Just on its own
I'm new to the game after losing weight and wanted something to help get me through some HIIT circuits. This Hurricane Extreme all in one formula seemed the perfect solution and hasn't let me down. I kept weight off and am looking leaner.Goes Well With:Taurine. Total Protein.
Has a very sharp taste if not diluted enough. Can make you feel nauseous for a few hours too. But with these ingredients it's worth it. Can't vouch for effectiveness yet but I'm sure it'll do the trick.
I purchased some Hurricane Extreme in chocolate mint flavour. After making three shakes, I have to say that whilst the product may be good (still a bit early too tell) and the size of product is certainly good value, but the taste is truly vile! I am always starving after a session so will probably get through the large pouch I have, but it is going to be a real struggle.
I bought the Hurricane Extreme in choc mint flavour, it's disgusting. Other than that it's good. I would just recommend that you don't buy choc mint!
I bought this product at the beginning of this year now two weeks into my training and the results are fantastic. I've gained pure lean muscle mass while being able to lose more body fat that ever. This product is now my number one favourite and I would recommend this to anyone. Ordering my next batch in the next week or so I might try the chocolate flavour, so far I have used the strawberry one the taste isn't the best but this product isn't designed to be the best shake.
I bought Myprotein Hurricane Extreme and the results are fantastic. I've gained pure, lean muscle mass whilst being able to lose more body fat than ever. This product is now my number one favourite and I would recommend this to anyone.
My friend bought this and after a week of taking it he couldn't stomach it. So he gave it to me I've had no troubles mixing it drinking it or anything. It's a great product. I mean I am usually a person who gets the product going straight through me but this one I've no such trouble I don't understand what everyone's problem is its not a wine tasting session chuck it down your neck and work out and you'll have no problem with it ! And after Christmas I'm going to start buying it for myself
"These products are excellent! Taste is good, mixing is easy and it works. This is my third purchase from Myprotein and i have shown excellent muscle gains with minimal fuss. Filling so you don't need extra snacks and you can almost feel your body absorbing the premium product that is Myprotein foods."
Gave Extream a go after using the XS powder for a while. It's great. The taste is a bit sharp at first but i found afer a week or so my pallet had got used to it. I have not been using it as described on the site but just using two scoops twice a day tbh i didn't even read it until just now. Regardless I've seen greater results with this and a good diet and i'll be going for three scoops twice a day.
"I really cannot understand all of the rubbish comments about the taste! People are obviously too fussy and expect too much, to be honest I thought it tasted genuinely nice! However, I was previously taking unflavoured soy protein isolate...which ACTUALLY DOES taste terrible! Overall I think the taste is absolutely fine, regardless of whether I've tasted the worst possible or not! If you want results the content should be more important than the taste anyway, what do you expect?!"
"Buy the strawberry cream, i drink it with 1% milk tastes amazing, with water not too bad either. Results, workouts feeling more energised, gains in lean muscle."
"I can never stick to a routine of taking protein shakes, but when i have i have always used hurricane XS. I would always get decent gains in size & strength with the XS, so i thought the extreme would take it to the next level, however i was disappointed. The only effect i had from the extreme was a tingling sensation over the whole of my body after 30min of drinking it. Over a month i gained no extra strength or size. Don't let this put you off, everybody is different, but for me the results are definitely within hurricane XS & its cheaper! Mix-ability & taste perfectly fine with the strawberry flavour."
"Having been using Hurricane Evo for a few years now when Hurricane Extreme was on special offer I thought I'd give it a go and ordered some choc smooth. Due to it costing more I was hoping it would be even better than the evo (which I enjoy drinking) however was very disappointed. The taste is horrible, to the point where having got through half the bag I couldn't stand it. It leaves me feeling bloated and sick with a lasting after taste. I have been drinking it in one go with water but often feel like its going to come straight back up. I wouldn't usually write reviews however just wanted to let people know my opinion, the evo is much better; nicer tasting (chic mint) better consistency (not gritty) and lower price. "
"Been using pre 6am workout for one month, I can't see what the problem with taste is - it goes down ok and Im sure I'm getting stronger.. ( it could be mental though) - The Beta Alanine tingles wake me up :-)"
"Ok, so I got this product a month ago today. I agree with alot of the reviewers who say the taste isn't that good; it's not good, but personally I don't think it's bad. It's a protein shake, I've tasted ALOT worse, yes I've tasted better, but honestly the gains that I've seen at the gym MORE than balance it out. I've seen my chest press go from 60K to 70k, by bicep dumbell curls go from 16k to 22k. Increased two (out of 20) notches on the cross trainer intensity, and gone from burning about 212cal in 12 mins to 275 cals in 12 mins. I could go on... I've also seen a really good reshaping to my whole body. Bigger pecs, smaller waist. It's really helping me push my training to the next level after I'd really started to plateu after doing weights for a good 18 months. I'd really recommend this product to people like me who have got into regular good gym workouts. Probably not worth it if your a complete neophyte at the gym, but once your settled in, sorted your diet out etc, give it a go. If you want a nice tasting chocolate milkshake, goto a fast food outlet..."
Ordered Chocolate Smooth. Was dreading the taste after reading some of the pansys leaving reviews on here. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. I mixed 100g with 400ml of water. It was a little sweet and bitty but easily drinkable in two gulps. Grow a pair chaps!
"As with the others it's disgusting - It took me 15 minutes of trying to force it down the first time... BUT only until you get used to it. I dreaded protein time for three-four days when I first got this powder but once you acquire the taste for it after 5-7 days you can drink it like orange juice. It's really not that bad. Anyway, moving on... I feel this has given me the benefits I want in terms of size and strength. But I'm not sure if it's a huge benefit over Hurricane XS. I suppose it's personal preferance, so if you want a shake that tastes like a milkshake go for XS, but if you like the idea of all those wonderful BCAAs, etc and you can stomach the first week of drinking this then go for the Extreme."
"First things first, in-keeping with tradition of the rest of the comments - the taste is pretty disgusting. However, if you use milk instead of water its so much better. I tried it first with water and I had to pinch my nose and down it, and even then I was barely able to keep it down. It does taste foul. Second time, I tried milk and its actually not bad. I'd even go as far to say it does taste like chocolate, just not the kind you'd get from a fast food place. Don't worry about the taste though, because in my opinion, this is the real deal if your serious about training. I was buying whey protein and creatine separately but this just has everything, all nice and compact into one shake and its much cheaper than buying separately, and that't not even including all the extra BCAA's and Glycine. I trained after taking this yesterday and it really showed, I felt energised, I felt I could do more reps than usual (I'll put that down to the creatine) and overall, I should have been aching like a bitch this morning but I was able to train again today which is awesome. The short of it is, it doesn't taste amazing so if that's a massive factor for you then I'd strongly recommend the PHD range as their flavours are flawless. Cookies and cream .. seriously, its as much of a treat as it is a protein shake. However, I didn't feel like I do when I was drinking PHD shakes as I do with this one. I'll post another review in a month, detailing my results. So far so good."
"I have tried alot of different protein and bodybuilding shakes in the past. The latest drink I have been using is Hurricane XS and have seen very good gains from it,one of the better drinks tried( recommended)with good taste in chocolate, so thought I would try a few pouches of Hurricane Extreme as it is ment to be even better. I ordered strawberry flavour and the taste is very very bad, worst flavour drink I have ever tried, ever and I am not usually fussy over taste! I find it best to mix it with water insted of milk and just get it down fast.The drink after training goes down better than the one in the morning! If you use milk i would drink then milk on its own after a shake made with water! If the gains are good I dont care what it taste like , but it is a shame as the Hurricane XS chocolate flavour is fairly good and I dont look forward to drinking the Hurricane Extreme. As for gains I will put a post up after a pouch or two as too early too review gains yet and compare it to the gains I saw with the Hurricane XS. I use 2 shakes a day one in morning and one in changing room after work out!"
"Ok, so I was abit cautious about swapping from my usual true whey + creatine + bcaa combination. Alot of the reviews said that it tasted bad etc. Being objective it doesn't taste QUITE as nice as the plain old choco smooth true whey, but it still tastes good and it's a pleasure to drink. Really hoping that the extra carbs and pro mix of other things like creatine/bcaa give me that extra boost that I need. I've done a load of measurements today and I'm gonna do them all again in a month. Definately his a palto, so will review this product again once it's had chance to work. Re: delivery, I ordered at about 1pm yesterday sat in a nice cafe in London, it arrived 10.20 today at my house. I've NEVER had any problems with myprotein and DPD delivery."
"Hi Guys, I've only been using this product for two days (post workout), so I can't really report on the long term gains, however I thought I'd write this report to help those buying this product to get it down them! But I can say that my recovery from yesterday was as good as the previous All-in-one I was using (Hurricane xs) and that judging by the content of the product the gains should be superior to that of Hurricane xs, and should save a hell of a lot of money on other products. I can also say that if you are looking for a tasty milkshake then this is not the product for you! Yesterday I used Hurricane Extreme for the first time after my morning gym session (Back day) and I thought I would follow the guidelines and take 3 scoops in 500 ml of milk, initially the taste was ok however after about 250ml the bitter after taste really hits you and it becomes difficult to drink the rest. Undeterred I drank the rest of it. I have to say I have a pretty strong stomach but after drinking 500ml relatively slowly (in about 10 minutes) I felt a little ill for the rest of the day. However, I was determined not to be beaten by this product, especially as I spent 40 quid on it and judging by the ingredients it could have real beneficial effects. So today I decided to follow a previous review and down it in two servings (1 and 3/4 scoops in 250ml of milk twice). This method helped no end and actually the shake tasted a lot better and was actually quite nice with no bitter after taste. Therefore, I recommend that anyone buying this product not to drink it but to down it fast in two servings for palatability and hopefully it should have some real effect in the long term! "
"I am a regular user of My Protein products because alongside a good diet and hard training theyv work. This is the first time that I have bought a product online, usually I go into a store, and I am not overly impressed. I ordered the product on Sunday and it did not arrive until Friday afternoon with the normal, not slowest super saver, postage. 5 days to get a product seems a little excessive in this day and age. This problem was further compounded by My Protein failing to get back to me on their Customer Service messaging system. I received an automatic reply and have heared nothing since. Not feeling valued here. As a serving soldier, I am by no means a prima donna and not overly fussy about the finer things in life. However, Hurricane Extreme genuinley tastes like soluble aspirin and it makes me feel queasy when drinking it. I don't care if a sports supplement tastes great because if I wanted a chocolate milkshake then I would go to a fast food joint. This is the first product in 15 years of supplemeting which I have had to force down. I won't be ordering this product again. Back to buying Hurricance Evo, until My Protein sort the taste out, in a store from now on I think. "
"I've tried True Whey before and it was pretty amazing. I have my periods when I have more time to do heavy training and periods when I have less time, and I've noticed that even taking the True Whey (in moderation) when I'm hardly doing any exercise still helps build considerable muscle. I was so impressed that I decided to take it to the next level with this product. It mixes very easily. Tastes fine. It's a protein shake. It's dumb to expect it to taste like anything else. Effectiveness - not sure yet, but judging by how extremely effective True Whey was, I imagine this should be even better for the higher price and judging by the ingredients. "
"Ordered strawberry and got delivered mint choc, which is the most horible thing i have every tasted. fantastic product but it makes me want to be sick, its so sweet and frankly unbearable but Myprotein did offer me a 15% voucher off. p.s order the strawberry!!! "
"Man alive, so it really does taste bad. BUT not the worst flavour myprotein does, Toffee Hurricane XS still holds that title. Right for you newbs who have never had an all-in-one, they pretty much all taste like this so man up or take everything separately. I've tried 99% of all-in-ones on the market (i'm a lazy, so sue me) and this one doesnt taste the worst, better than reflex's version. The creatine could've been refined a bit better, value for money is good (with the 3kg for 2kg offer anyway). And the BCAA's pushes above the rest, and is also the explanation behind the acidic taste. Just so ya knows i'm using chocolate flavour. "
"Ive recently change from the EVo to the EXtreme and find the two product mix totaly diffrent and i can't seem to get a thinker shake. ive used the milk in diffrent amount from 300ml to the reomended 500ml and ive even tried adding instance oats to thicken, i find the amount of sweetener makes the product a bit sickly but way hey nothings prefect, but will probly go back to the EVO next order"
"I agree, if you want a tasty milkshake then go to Mcdonalds! The standard of ingredients in this shake are fantastic and all backed with research. Combined in these amounts for this price is better than anywhere else is seen."
Why would anyone complain about the taste? Its not meant to be a nice enjoyable milkshake. You can get one of these shakes down you in less than 5 seconds. Is that so bad? 5 seconds of bad taste and maybe a few more of after taste. Man up and drink it. This product is awesome. It saves you buying everything separately. Highly recommended!
I shouldn't be leaving a review so soon as I have literally just received my delivery and consumed my first serving of the 100g and added it to a shake. I did as Dale Johnson said and taking it in 2 portions... The taste is what I would expect from licking the floor of a messy chemist. However this is not a 5* restaurant so I can't see why people are complaining about the taste and thus giving this product 1*. I am going to finish this batch and then post results. It's all about the results folks so stop giving a product a terrible review due to its poor taste.
"I bought this a couple of weeks ago at a discount of around £30 and I am not disappointed. My gains have been huge I have so much more energy between sets it's great and being a boxer training is becoming easier due to higher levels of energy. I have the Smooth Chocolate flavour, it's ok but definately drinkable not that I care as long as I'm getting the nutrition. I think due to the creatine content you need to drink a lot of water I have found myself being quite dehydrated at times other than that I would definately recommend this product a lot better than what I used before 'True Whey' "
"This is my second review of this product to comment on it's effectiveness. While it is hard to stomach, I have found an easier way to take this product. I mix 1 and 3/4 scoops into 300ml of semi skimmed milk and down it, I then do the same thing again. this makes it much easier to shake and therefore mix correctly. In terms of effectivement I have noticed very big gains, I am starting to see my veins pop through my bicep and forearm (something I have never seen on my body before). I am a complete beginner and only started training a few months ago, I used to get massive DOMS on my trained muscles and see little gain a week later. Now I am using this the gains are steady and DOMS are nowhere near as bad. I can't wait to see what happens once I finish the whole pack."
"I've tried many different 'all in one' protein powders from different companies, just started on the Hurricane XS from here a month back so looking forward to trying the Extreme. Looking at the ingredients it's already saved me a lot of money from buying them separately since I'd still like to add BCAA's to the XS as well as other things that wouldn't be possible to get for this price. I will let you know how it goes, Just for a heads up taste doesn't really bother me, it's all in the results."
"Unfortunately, this has the potential to be a great product, i've just bought smooth chocolate, and as much as im aware it's never going to taste as nice as a proper milkshake, i expect it to be slightly palatable. it's disgusting. i tried to neck half a shake and i couldn't do it. i had the same problem with the Diet Whey, good results, but couldn't drink it, the only one i've been able to enjoy is the impact whey that's £12 or something! as much as im sure it would work, i've just wasted £40. "
I bought the chocolate mint I wanted the strawberry but was out of stock the chocolate mint not bad im more interesting to the result than the taste so I hope the best I just dont know how many servings should I take on the days off?? I hope I can get an answer ?
Just received this. I have to say the taste of choc mint is along the lines of drinking dissolvable aspirin or paracetomol that hasn't fully dissolved. When mixed the thing fizzes on the same way. It's not easy to stomach but with all the ingredients I was kind of expecting that. Cant comment on effectiveness just yet but I hope for good results.
