A good price for a bog-standard weight gainer. Doesn't include any of the fancy (and often unnecessary) gimmicks that are used in others and works well for anyone looking to up their calorie intake during the bulking season. I thought the strawberry flavour tasted very nice. I had some trouble getting it to fully mix into the water, leaving it with a slight grainy taste, but was still drinkable.
Great tasting and mixes really well, Plus really helped me put on some size.
I thought I would try a different shake but I may have made a mistake. This product doesnt agree with my digestive system and makes it hard to take regularly. I usually go for Total Gainer, this is a great product and works well for me. I think I will ease off the Impact Weight Gainer and opt for Total Gainer instead.
This is a good product and it mixes well. The reason i have given this 4 star is because it is slightly grainy due to te oats and also contains sweetners even in the unflavoured one.. Good for people who cannot stomach other weighy gainers as this will not

Bought to gain back weight and help put muscle mass back on after illness. Does what it says on the label, I've been using this once a day (or twice on training days) for two weeks and gained half a stone. Cant comment on long term effectiveness but appears to be doing the job. Strawberry flavour is nice, not too sweet but perfectly drinkable and mixes well. Wouldn't recommend mixing with water thoughGoes Well With:Milk
This is by far my favourite product. Very healthy, tasty, and definitely seeing mass gained. Would recommend this to anyone seriously wanting to pack on good quality mass. Excellent all roundGoes Well With:Anything... milk/water, oatmeal and I consume it breakfast and before bed

I am using this one nearly two weeks, before I used to use serious mass from ON. But I don't think so this one is effect like serious mass.
Been taking the IWG for over a week now, can see a difference from taking this weight gainer. Would definitely recommend this product.
This is a generally good PROTEIN but a bad source for weight gain I haven't gained no weight at all but it's been good for helping me maintain my weight but the texture is absolutely terrible Goes Well With:Cell mass
This is a weight gainer with a solid carbohydrate and protein source. its one of the rare weight gainers that do not use maltodextrin as the main source of carbohydrate, instead it uses complex oats and barley which is way better for lean gains. However, the sweeteners and flavouring used in it were absolutely horrible and too sweet, especially for the chocolate one. The only reason that would prevent me being this again is the taste, other than that its very effective for gaining LEAN mass and meeting ur daily macros. if u can take the taste, then this is when of the best weight gainers for u!Goes Well With:banana and milk (blender)
I was looking for a way to gain weight quickly to then build muscle. I was advised this product by a friend and am very happy with my purchase. Although i have only been using the weight gainer for a couple of weeks i can already see and feel a big difference in my weight and muscle mass. The product also has great taste i have smooth chocolate and feels like i'm just drinking a chocolate milkshake. Also mixes very well with both milk and water. I would advise anyone else trying to gain weight quickly to give this product a try; very good value for money as well.
This is the best product I have used in order to gain mass. My build is ectomorph so I naturally struggle to gain weight and have to consume large amount of calories to gain size. This product is ideal for my I was 11'2 prior to using this and now I'm 12st.if you're training hard and you've tailored your routine you'll see good gains I've put size on all round. It makes sense that should u want to cut up then impact whey would be a better product. This product tastes amazing and mixes greatGoes Well With:Water or skimmed milk choc smooth is best
I have bought Impact Weight Gainer in the past and have bought it again recently. I use it to bulk up and get up to an optimum weight, this usually occurs when i have had a few weeks off training. The product is best for people who struggle to gain weight and are looking to naturally bulk up with the assistance of a well-valued supplement. I take one in the morning and one after my training session that evening (two measures per serving). On rest days i take just one serving, usually with breakfast. I started the product at the beginning of the month at 58.1kg and now after four weeks i weigh 61.0kg. I also blend my morning shake with a banana and some oats to add some good calories to the shake, it generally tastes very nice. I've got the strwaberry and cream flavour. You can combine Creatine Monohydrate tablets (also in the MyProtein range) to make a good pre-workout shake. But it really depends on your goal. I lack energy when i train in the evenings so creatine gives me a little extra power that is certainly needed. There are products on the market similar to this, you have Maximuscle Promax and PhD Gainer etc, but you will not beat My Protein for price and results. Honestly. Overall, a great product. When i get to my target weight of 66kg i will come on to Impact Whey Protein product, for some summer 'cutting'. A good 9.5/10. Goes Well With:Cold water, milk or Krusha (flavoured milk thing)
Mix's very well, my protein products tend to mix the quickest and smoothest of all products I have tried. Taste is great can't really go wrong with chocolate. And of coarse the price is realistic, some brands you can look at paying 40-70 pounds for the equivalent 2.5kg of protein. The effects are good I am in my bulking phase and it is helping pack on a bit, will switch to impact whey when stripping (another good product). Overall I am impressed with the product, the delivery and the on going offers which helps keep us not so wealthy people in the game.
Quick delivery. Got the chocolate smooth, tastes good. Also mixes well. Put on around 5 pounds after finishing the 2.5kg bag.Goes Well With:Water and milk.
The taste is great, postage is very fast, i love the mixability. The shake is a little gritty but once you take the shake a few times you get used to it and you enjoy it both with milk and water. Great purchase, and sure going to buy it again! I recommend this!Goes Well With:Water and Milk
Very quick service, comes the next day! No need for expensive delivery option as the standard one is very good. will be going back here for sure. The protein isn't bad either.Goes Well With:Milk
Good taste mixed well with the blender, a little "bitty" when mixed but grow a pair and deal with it. Would recommend to a friend.
Just started using the product and looking forward to seeing the possible results! Taste isnt bad can be a bit chalky towards the end but hardly a problem if u want the nutrition in. Do get a few granules that havent mixed properly but not something major.. overall quite a good product and shall be looking forward to seeing results
Easy to mix tastes great does what it says Goes Well With:Milk
After ordering this product I was quite pleased with the taste and the way it mixed I advise using their mixer with metal ball as it works a treat!Goes Well With:50 / 50 milk and water
Impact Weight Gainer mixes well with milk and water, and tastes good - I can't complain! Goes Well With:Best with milk, still good with water.
Great product, noticed a gain of half a stone in just over a week without putting fat on. I take 2 a day during work when I need energy and have one mixed with impact whey for recovery after workout. Mixes very well, oats can start to form at the bottom but a quick shake gets rid of this. overall quality product and would recommend to anyone trying to put on mass.Goes Well With:milk
Great value for money! Goes Well With:Smoothies
I think the taste is enjoyable and not sickening which is great. It mixes well, and overall I am happy with this product.
I could feel the difference almost immediately love this product
I'm fully satisfied with the weight gainer.
Impact Weight Gainer is a top quality product, I have tried plenty of products in the past but now I am sticking with this one. It does what it says on the tin and that's what I look for in my protein. You will not be dissatisfied.Goes Well With:Milk, BCAA
Impact Weight Gainer is really good. I've put half a stone on since having the shakes and I only ordered the product about 10 days ago.
Impact Weight Gainer is overall a good product and offers good gains.Goes Well With:Water
I bought a 2.5kg bag of Impact Weight Gainer and it lasted me a while, I took it twice a day. I put on lots of weight in a short time but this was not always good weight, the high carbs caused me to put weight in areas I didn't want. I wouldn't use this product again, but if you are looking for lean mass use Myprotein Impact Whey Protein!
Impact Weight Gainer is good. I put on half a stone in 10 days and tastes good if mixed properly. I would recommend.Goes Well With:Milk
Impact Weight Gainer is a good food supplement product and effective after workouts. This works as an alternative breakfast with lots of vitamin and protein concentration.Goes Well With:Breakfast
Had it for two weeks now and I can say for the price, you can't go wrong! Taste is good, its not a thick shake, which i prefer and after two weeks I've put on 3 pounds, which I'd say is muscle. 4/5
The healthiest weight gainer I have come across as it has no white sugar only complex carbs. I prefer the unflavoured product as I prefer to avoid artificial sweetners.
Impact Weight Gainer is a great product that tastes great. It was delivered super fast.
I've been using Impact Weight Gainer for a week now after getting fed up of being a 6ft 4 11 stone ectomorph. I bought the strawberry and cream flavour and it tastes great with milk and a banana mixed in a blender. It gets a bit grainy towards the end of the shake but I've tried a few and that seems to be the recurring problem with weight gain shakes but it is not unbearable. I've been having one in the morning and one before I go to bed every day for a week and a half now, as well as creatine twice a day and a small meal every 2-3 hours putting away about 2.8-3.8k calories a day. I do free weight training 3 times a week and already feel and look a lot healthier and feel more positive. This is great value for the price you pay, you won't be disappointed.Goes Well With:Milk and fruit in a blender, creatine caps
Only Just started using so to early to notice results. Mixes OK with milk. Goes Well With:Milk
I always buy the strawberry/cream flavour of Impact Weight Gainer. After using the product for a month and having a shake 3 times a day between meals I put on 7lb. The second month a further 4lb. The third month another 2lb. In total, 13lb of muscle. Nothing else has ever worked for me over the last 15 years. Since using this I've gone from 10st13 to 11st12. I'm 6ft 2 in height. Highly recommended!
I was trying to get toned but was told that I was losing too much weight, so I used this weight gainer and it worked great. It put a small amount of fat on me but I don't look too skinny and yet still look toned. It doesn't mix the best but that doesn't bother me, just get a fork in, whisk it more and then shake it. I'm now a toned fatty.Goes Well With:Milk or water
I've been using this Impact Weight Gainer for about 2 months. I bought the chocolate flavour first and now the strawberries & cream. For me, it's important how they taste as well, if I'm going to be drinking 2-3 of these a day I want to enjoy it and I haven't been disappointed on that front. Of course, the chocolate doesn't taste like Cadbury's and the strawberries & cream aren't straight from Wimbledon, but they're pretty good. Don't buy the strawberries & cream one unless you've got a sweet tooth though! They mix well, with hardly any lumps with just the standard flask & mixer (no wire ball) and are easily drinkable. It says to go with between 250-300ml of milk, I always go with 300ml because I don't like it too thick but obviously that's personal choice. They are definitely effective, I weighed myself last Sunday (9th) and I'm at the heaviest I've been for about 2-3 years. Basically, it's really good value, it doesn't taste bad, and as long as you're eating right and drinking 2-3 shakes a day you'll be well away with this. I've tried a few brands and this one works best for me.
Impact Weight Gainer is the healthiest weight gain product I have seen. I only buy the unsweetened product and would never use the artificial sweetened product as they damage our friendly gut flora, according to the latest research.
Impact Weight Gainer may not taste great, and doesn't particularly mix well but it does the business. If you're looking for a decent weight gainer then this is ideal, it does what it says on the packet. Quit moaning about taste and mixability, it works and gets results.Goes Well With:Water and a big workout
This is a good weight gainer. The taste is alright as well. Mix it in blender for 2 min or with hand for 5 min. Just do exercise with this gainer other wise fat would go around my belly. The Impact Weight Gainer is a good product. Thanks.

Impact Weight Gainer tasted really bad. It didn't blend into a nice, thick shake, and was very runny. It left a bad aftertaste.
I haven't used Impact Weight Gainer long enough to notice any results, however from the nutritional information on it, it seems perfect to help add some mass with the blend of low GI carbs and the mix of slow and fast release protein. The taste isn't great, at first I thought adding extra water would help lessen the taste, however I found the best way was to use around 300ml of water and get it down the hatch as soon as possible (strawberry cream flavour).Goes Well With:Could add some glutamine into it.
This Impact Weight Gainer is a good gainer. It mixes easily, the only thing is the taste is a bit chalky, but I will try a different flavour.
This Impact Weight Gainer is a very good product.
Impact Weight Gainer tastes great and mixes well. I cannot say how effective it is as I've just started taking it.
I bought 2.5kg of chocolate Impact Weight Gainer after being frustrated with my non-existent weight gain. I have been lifting heavier, but I am an ectomorph with a very high metabolism, so I have been staying at the same weight for a long time (around 10 and half stone). After one month using the product, I have gained nearly half a stone! 2 scoops in the morning and 2 before bed, both with milk. I would definitely recommend it to hard gainers. It's good tasting too. Goes Well With:Milk
I started working out for the first time in my life and was not really seeing many gains, mixed with the fact that I was not eating particularly well and I have an extremely fast metabolism I dropped to around 53kg (very underweight). Then, a friend suggested the Impact Weight Gainer, I instantly started to see epic gains. I worked out just as much as before but the muscles came so quickly and so naturally. I've put on about 8kg so far and that is either muscle weight or just me filling out because I've still got my 6-pack. Basically, the only time this stuff will make you fat is if you're not working out.Goes Well With:An epic workout
Impact Weight Gainer is an excellent product. I previously struggled to consume enough calories and was losing weight rapidly with heavy workouts. With this product, I have put on 7 pounds in 2 weeks, consuming only one serving a day. It's an excellent post-workout shake.
Impact Weight Gainer mixed okay with milk. Avoid the unflavoured version though, it smells and tastes like you're drinking flour.Goes Well With:Milk
Impact Weight Gainer tastes great and mixes really well for a smooth taste! It's a delight to have post-workout and for gaining lean muscle weight! I personally love mixing the product with milk instead of water for extra calories and chocolatey taste! It's yummy!Goes Well With:Mixes great with milk for that chocolatey milkshake effect!
I've had 3-4 of these Impact Weight Gainer and I'm seeing some gains. The chocolate smooth is pretty drinkable and mixes well with milk.Goes Well With:Milk, water
Impact Weight Gainer is a good product to help you in bulking up, however what many comments say is that they have put on a lot of weight in a short period of time (2kg in 2 weeks) and all you're doing here is buying a product to make you fat! Little of that will be muscle, and with a product this high in carbs and calories, you should limit your intake instead of taking the "recommended" usage. It gives you a good amount of protein but to hit your macros with the help of this product, it does mean taking in a huge amount of calories alongside. It's great tasting, easy to use, easy to overuse and easy to get fat with. Other than that, if you use it right, it's great for helping you get enough calories if you can't eat enough.Goes Well With:Milk. Raw eggs. Peanut butter. Not great with water.
Impact Weight Gainer mixed terribly and even after blending/mixing well it still tasted like the powder was in form and I could feel it while drinking. The drink separated quite quickly and was not tasteful at all. This may of just been a bad batch but taste and mixability were very disappointing and I wouldn't touch this product again.
I have struggled with gaining weight for a long time, and gaining the bulk required for weight-training has always been difficult for me but this product is VERY good. Not being a big-eater has meant buying this MP Impact Weight Gainer- which has really helped. I am about 5"7 and used to weigh about 57kilos. After using this product for 2 months I am now 62.5kilos. The product combines a shot of protein with a shot of carbohydrate, the two work very well with a basic beginners training regime. I.e. weight training 3/4 times a week. The mix tastes great (strawberry and cream) and goes best with water, but if you want to gain even faster then mix with whole milk and blend with bananas and oats. For an extra 200 kcal per shake. I am going to continue using this product until i reach my target weight of 10st (about 64kilos). It is working!! Fast!! A definite buy for skinny youngsters like myself! Goes Well With:Cold water in a mixing flask. Add raspberries or blueberries if you have a blender.
I've used this for a couple of weeks and have seen results, impressed as I'm a real hard gainer on the weight side of things. I can very easily and get good size but weight doesn't come with it - something I still don't understand! I'm having a shake in the evening after a work out and 2 the next day. Mixability is terrible. If you leave it for 2 minutes after shaking a thick sediment will form at the bottom of your shaker. This will not get any better with more water. I haven't tried it yet with milk, just water. It tastes pretty good in Strawberry Cream, you can feel the grainy texture but I tend to down it all in one. Not bad on the digestive system either like some shakes which will pass through you quicker than a Ferrari!
I have tried almost every protein powder on the market and after drinking most I vomit because of the taste and I'm always dubious about ordering a new protein. This Impact Weight Gainer is my third my protein powder I've had and each have tasted great. Yes it does have bits in but it's a build up, but the taste is amazing and it doesn't have that horrible protein taste. It also received super fast delivery!
I don't know why people on here are complaining about the taste....for one it's not a normal milkshake, it's a protein shake!!! The strawberry cream flavour is probably the best tasting protein shake I've ever had (there's some pretty bad ones out there). It does have a bitty texture but that's just the blended oats, I barely even notice it. Mixability is great too, few shakes in a shaker and it completely dissolves no problem. Can't really comment on the effectiveness because I've only just started taking it, but from what I've read it definitely does the job! 5 stars for sure.
The Impact Weight Gainer is a very good product and an effective blend to help gain weight. I bought a 2.5kg batch which lasted me roughly 3 weeks. I have gained 4.1kg in that time frame (started: 83.5kg, now: 87.1kg) and not all on the gut. It goes well with 1 scoop to 250ml of whole milk taken four times a day in between meals.
"As an on the verge ectomorph and vivid crossfitter putting on weight is a difficult task for me. I've tried a lot of products in the past with little to no luck what so ever. I thought I would give this product a try after reading the reviews. I bought 2.5kg of the strawberry cream and have to say the taste is fantastic, I mix it with milk and take 2-3 times a day, In just over 2 weeks I have gained a solid 2kg. Mixability is fine ignore the reviews that say otherwise, there is normally a few bits left in the bottom but just add a drop more milk and down it. I had been on whey isolate and oats for about 3 months prior and i didnt realize how bloated it made me feel until i tried this, its a very light drink that doesn't give you that bloated feeling. All in all so far im extremely please with this product and will be ordering more."
"Haven't put on weight since I was about 17...now 21, thought i'd give this a try. Bought the strawberry and cream flavour and mix 2 scoops with around 400ml semi skimmed milk once a day. Whisk it up with a fork and then good to go. Slightly grainy but tastes great (for one of these products anyway) Used about 2/3's of the bag so far in around 6 weeks and have gained 12lbs in weight. Absolutely amazing!"
"bought 2 bags of this in the strawberry flavour thinking they would be small but you get a fair bit for your money, The taste isn't too bad for what results it gives however even when mixed well is slightly gritty but its to be expected so you just have to get over it and down it. Over all a good product with good results at a competitive price! peace."
"I read most of the reviews for the various weight gain products here and decided to get this one as it had some good feedback from other hard-gainers. I've just received my first order and thought I'd give it a try an hour before the gym, and also to test the taste and mixability. I used the mini blender bottle and added 2.5 scoops to the bottle and topped it up with water, gave it a 15 second shake and downed it. I had the vanilla flavour and it tasted fine, definitely not off putting. Obviously there was some slight grittiness but that would be the oats, so was expected. I did give it a couple more quick 2 second shakes between gulps to ensure I got rid of any residual clumps, and this worked a treat. Maybe there is a problem when mixing with milk, but water is what I've used for a long time with my protein shakes and it tastes fine as well as being free :-) Only time will tell if I start putting on that much needed lean mass, but I'll report back my findings in a few weeks."
Get the unflavoured and mix it with milk. Add more milk as required. It does the job. I have put on 1 stone in about a month from 11st to 12 st and have finished one 2.5kg bag and have just ordered another.
Before I tried the Impact Weight Gainer shakes I couldn't consume enough calories to meet the extremely physical demands of my job. I was loosing weight and couldn't even eat enough food to maintain body weight! I started using the Weight Gainer on the 17th may. I was using 3 shakes a day mixed with whole milk and in 2 weeks i gained 5lbs! Since then I've started using 2 shakes a day and working out doing high repetitions with light weights. I'm maintaing weight and gaining definition. Brilliant product.
"I'm a young man (24), quite active, play sports most days and have recently started hitting the gym again, 3 or 4 times a week. I have a high metabolism and have always been slim, not quite an ectomorph with my broad shoulders but im 6'4 so look skinny as heck, and have found it very difficult to put weight on, yet ridiculously easy to lose weight. In the past I have tried to bulk up by eating right and A LOT. Also weight lifting around 3 times a week. But this became painful. Not the lifting but all the damn eating. Im quite the eater any way so trying to load on the calories was like eating constantly and at times it was like I'd be force feeding myself as I just wasn't hungry. I would put on some weight but very slowly, and there were gains but again this came slowly. Then I became ill and lost all the weight gained over a 6 month period, and then some, in less than 2 months! So now Im trying to bulk up again. Anyway I will cut short this waffling back story and move on to this product. IT IS WONDERFUL. I've been on it for about a week now, 2-3 portions a day and I must have put on around 3lbs already. 3lbs!!! The amount of money spent on food to get these gains would far surpass the cost of this gainer. Now I can comfortably reach and even surpass the 4000 calories a day and am noticing the gains already. I use the myprotein mix master to shake it up. I take it with milk, add the gainer, then throw in some (insert brand) chocolate powder and it resembles the taste of a (insert brand) milkshake. The texture hits you at first but I'm used to it now. For all those that complain about it, it's just the oats. This thing is loaded with ground oats so its just an oaty texture/taste that shouldn't be too bothersome after your first few doses. My brother is jumping on this stuff now that he's noticed the gains this thing offers. I would recommend this to anyone looking to pile on the pounds. "
i received my products when i was suppose to. I found it mixed fine with milk and was pretty tasty. Would like to know how many calories per serving thou just so i can monitor my calorie intake abit better. Cant comment on effectiveness yet though only had it a few days.
"It works. I can't argue with that. However, the taste is rough (but who cares) and the mix can be a little gritty (again, just man up and chug). Biggest downfall, you MUST under all circumstances brush your teeth afterwards, your breath will reek in a short while. Unflavoured is drinkable with a tea spoon or two of chocolate powder (screw product placement, we all know I'm talking about Nesquick), better with water pre-work out and milk post-workout otherwise you can feel a little uneasy as its sits quite heavy in your stomach for a little while. Overall, well recommended for those bulking, in 6 weeks I've added 3kilos with little change to my diet"
"I've had this product for exactly 7 days and in that time I've already put on 3lbs and created a little definition in my body! I haven't even changed my diet and I don't work out THAT hard either. I find the best times to take it is mid afternoon between lunch and dinner. Then workout in the evening and have another one straight after. I've been doing this everyday (missed one day) and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. It tastes great too! (Strawberry flavour) I don't understand how people don't like the taste. Mixes well too, seeing as I don't have a blender bottle yet. I just whisk it hard (while drinking too). At this rate I'll could potentially be putting on a stone every month and a half, if I don't get lazy. Brilliant results. Brilliant product for anyone looking to increase body size and definition! 5*"
"been using for 4 months now and can see the effects even on a guy with high metabolism like myself. However i ordered chocolate smooth expecting it to taste as good as the whey protein and it really doesnt the mixability is awful i have never had a shake with so many lumps, I may have just got a bad batch but i dont know, product itself is great and if you next it should see the improvements."
"I'm a fan of my protein products but this is the worst weight gain I have tried. Strawberry flavour tastes so sweet and the texture is gritty (like drinking sand). Just wish I sampled it first, stupid me!! Would rather pay that little extra for a quality product."
"Strawberry flavour - I've had this less than 2 weeks and already I'm gaining weight! I'm a hard gainer and this product is a godsend! I drink it twice a day; just before and after workout on workout days and morning and afternoon on other days. I find it works best with: 250ml water 150ml milk Then add the powder, not before to avoid clumps on the bottom hard to remove Shake VIGOROUSLY for about 10 seconds The strawberry flavour is just like Nesquik this way and no bits! For it's low price and high effectiveness I'd strongly recommend it to everyone! And because the protein and carbs are well balanced I don't feel like I'm overloading or supplementing my body at all A**** MYPROTEIN!"
"Only had the product for a short time so cant comment on its effectiveness as a weight gainer, although i do seem to have gained alittle weight since purchase, im not sure if its down to the product or not as my weight fluctuates slightly from day to day. that being said I find this product mixes well, unlike others that have commented before. i once just tipped a scoop into my drink of cordial and stirred with a fork and it still mixed very well, so i dont see the problems that others have. i mostly mix with water as i'm not a big fan of milk, i have the unflavoured variety, so to compensate for the lack of taste, i add some fruit flavoured cordial and this does the trick for me. although not the tastiest thing i have ever had it still goes down well and i have no problems necking a pint of this mixture. as others have mentioned it is quite 'bitty' but this is no concern for me as it was expected due to the ground oats. if left for a few minutes it will settle to the bottom of your bottle/ glass, especially in water so just shake or stir before each gulp and this shouldnt be a problem. overall i'm pleased with the purchase and cant wait to see some gains as i tend gain weight very slowly, even when hitting the weights 4-5 times a week when not working."
I received my order the next day which i was very happy with. i have been on 2-3 shakes a day for the last 5 days and i can say that they may not be the tastiest shakes in the world but you dont use this product because you like milkshakes...they are a great filler between meals and i look forward to seeing gains in the next month...All in all a great product. i would defiantely recommend this!
"Quality ingredients, so should give you some of the calories you need to build muscle. It does taste like pancake mix if you don't add anything to it, but you can make it taste better. Here are some tips: 1) Get the unflavoured version, that way you can't complain that it's too sweet 2) Mix it with a good shaker, one with a wire ball, it helps to get rid of the powder balls 3) Add some chocolate powder to it, it will taste delicious. If you want to avoid sugar, get the powder from myprotein 4) Use a blender and add some fruits. A banana works great and you can add some blueberries too. Some things I've noticed: - There is something in this product that gives me a heart burn, but I have no idea which ingredient it is - Since there is little fat and no fibre, you will feel hungry pretty quickly after having had a shake. Not necessarily a bad thing if you have a workout 2 hours later, but don't expect to feel full for long It's a good product overall. "
im not used to taking weight gaining shakes as i have just been taking whey protien but after some good reviews i have decieded to switch. this is a really good product and i cannot see why everyone complains about the taste i bought a weight gain shake to gain weight! if i wanted a nice milkshake i would have gone to the supermarket. The shake has mixed really well and really just tastes like porrige. Overall a really good product and will definately be buying more of it.
"I'm sure this product is effective, but I couldn't continue to use it; the taste is unbearably sweet. Using just half the recommended amount in 300ml of liquid, it was still awful. What I can't understand is that (with all those carbs in there) the manufacturer decided an artificial sweetener was even necessary. I'm sure it would be much better without the sucralose... I've sold mine on to a less discerning friend."
"Having tried pretty much every other product on the market this was my ""last chance saloon"" to add lean mass to my slender frame - something that is very difficult to do for me due to an over-active thyroid. Two servings per day for the last two months plus my regular diet and training routine have seen me put on (and keep on!) 12lbs. I went for the vanilla option and yes ok, it doesn't taste as nice as some of the ""fancy"" products you get in the high street stores but it's far from awful, mixes well and for me is literally worth it's weight in gold. I would heartily recommend to everyone."
"taken two bags of this and it works really well. in 3 months of using it (been using essential whey 60 as well) i've put on just under 5kg (and i've always struggled to put on mass). taste wise its ok, got the strawberry one both times and after a while you dont even think about the taste."
"Using this product for about a week now. Been taking a shake 3/4 times a day. I am a ectomorphic body type which means I am quite naturally slim, Previously a heavy gym goer but hit a plateau, realised it was because I wasn't getting enough calories and carbs into my diet. The shakes are a great way to solve this, and I have notably gained lean mass, however I have also gain a little fat but this is inevitable when your taking in so many calories. Overall a good product and a quick and easy way to assure your getting good nutrition to grow muscle without making loads of meals throughout the day!"
I am fairly new to training and so far have only taken the Impact Whey Protein which is great. At the recommendation of my PT ive switched to Impact Weight gainer. I got the Chocolate Smooth flavour and at first found it really sickly sweet compared to the Whey Protein and I struggled to drink it due to the sweetness. After the first few however I got used to the taste and now its no problem at all. Generally it mixes ok with no issues but on one occasion it lumped together and I got a mouth full of powder. This was a one off though and I would buy this again. Would like more choice of flavours though.
"Just had my first shake of the strawberry flavour. Taste isn't too bad, it's more the texture when drinking it, kinda grainy but that's what I expected as it's packed with oats. Mixing was not an issue with the spring shaker"
"I've never been able to put on weight despite working out almost daily, my lightness was becoming an issue as im a keen rugby player and found myself getting injured frequently. I have just finished my first bag, having roughly 3 a day and in less than a month ive managed to put on a 5kg. That has coincided with my body fat percentage dropping aswell, i love this product as its the first to get me real results. I struggled with the taste for the first few days (chocolate smooth) and it was making me gag slightly, but like any protein its grown on me and i can drink it happily enough. I will definitly be getting this product for the foreseeable future."
"This is the worst tasting product i have ever used, it tastes like raw diluted pancake mix, its very grainy and doesnt mix well at all, even with a blender. Ive used a lot of other MP products which have all been great but this is just awful. I had to just throw it in the bin after 2 uses."
"Definitely reccomend this product, makes meeting your daily calories far easier, good quality ingredients. To those complaining about the taste, try the Vanilla with milk."
"i am very happy with the results from this product after a month, unflavoured with milk is the way forward!!"
"Best weight gainer I've tried. Only 4 good quality, natural ingredients so this is SO much better than all the other low quality weight gainers on the market that are just full of sugar. I tried the strawberry cream flavor and it tasted quite good. One the thing I would say is take 2 a day to ensure you pack the weight. Overall this is by far the best weight gainer out there and for the price it's incredible."
i am not happy with this one. I have the strawberry cream flavour and it mixes very badly. There are many lumps of powder left which is not nice and the flavour is not great. I much prefer the whey protein which I had last. I tried a sample of the total gainer which was very nice. I just wish I had tried a sample of this first!
"i bought the impact weight gainer about 3 weeks ago, just about finnished the sack, mixes vety well and taste couldnt be better its delicious! havent gained much weight from it but so pretty dissapointed, going to go for the total protein next, decent product duno how people can complain about the taste!"
"First time ordering this, cant comment on results yet but just a mention to the taste and mixability, when drinking i taste small lumps and it doesnt taste great."
"Really bitty, and the taste (I got Strawberry cream) is disgusting, I literally have to chug it down each time... however it does the job and if your not bothered about taste then you should definitely consider this."
"I wouldn't normally moan about the taste but the chocolate smooth is absolutely digusting! Sweet isn't the word. Why on earth they have made it so ridiculously sweet i'll never know. It mixes well at first but all the powder soon goes to the bottom & settles like sand, with the same horrible texture. I literally gag when attempting to drink this, so this will certainly be seeing the inside of a dustbin. I usually buy the Total Gainer (Choc Mint flavour) & haven't really had much of an issue with the taste or texture (except it can be a bit gloopy) but decided to go for a gainer with a bit less fat content. I'm going back to it now. In terms of results.. well calories are calories."
Just want to say I've bought this unflavoured and it tastes good with milk - like liquid porridge. THe idea of buying flavoured sounds horrible...
"Awesome taste, just tastes of slightly sweetened oats ( I have the unflavoured). Mixes wonderfully with milk ( havent tried with water yet) and although I cant make a judgement about the effectiveness yet, its certainly one of the best I've had based on the components I can judge it on at this point . A+"
"I have been taking this for about 3 weeks now, I have nearly finished the bag, and I have found it effective not only as a weight gainer but a good lean mass builder. I bought strawberry cream and it taste very good with water and milk. It mixes ok but I use a blender so there is no problem. Using this as extra meals on top of my normal meals, I put on about 2-3lb a week. I would buy this again."
"I really think this an first class product. Having since learned a lot about nutrition in the context of muscle building recently, when I thought I knew a lot anyway, this is a fantastic source of high quality nutrients. Oats and Barley as carb source are far superior to maltodextrin maybe with the exception of PWO drink, the tapered protein release makes up for Wheys ultra fast digestion (again only useful PWO). This is almost as good as real food but is convenient and cheap. Very 'clean' nutrition in comparison to other supplement companies (sometimes who charge double the price). I have noticed some batches mix very smooth, some batches the oats aren't quite as fine, and it leaves the shake with a slightly ""bitty"" texture with the bits being heavier and falling to the bottom. Shake before every swig if you get a batch like this, my new pouch actually mixes to total smoothness though. I have tried Strawberry cream and chocolate. Both are nice, although the strawberry became a bit too sweet towards the end of the pouch. I was hesitant to try chocolate as im not usually one for chocolate flavoured things (ice cream in particular) but the chocolate smooth flavour is a great balance, not too sweet and very palatable. Well done MP, I don't know what i'd do without this product."
I have found this to be a very good product. I have put on 6.3 kg in about a month and a half of using the product - in which time I used two 2.5 kg pouches in addition to my normal 3 meals a day. I took 3 serving's a day. In terms of mix-ability I think you just have to shake it a bit more vigorously and it is fine if a little oaty which is to be expected. Taste is actually quite good (with water). Overall very pleased with the results.
