No update on Accelerate pre-order, Gifted Nutrition two days over promised ship date

Gifted Nutrition pre-order has yet to ship two days after July 21st

When Gifted Nutrition's website first went online, all it's supplements were listed as out of stock but available for pre-order. Which in a number of launch posts floating around, Flex featuring one of them, the pre-orders were expected to be shipped on July 21st. We placed our order the day after Phil Heath's line was unveiled, with July 12th being the date stamped on order #100000022. While we were expecting an email on the Monday just been, it's been two days now since the promised July 21st and we have yet to get an update. There is the chance Gifted shipped our secured tub of Accelerate without an email, but even if that were true. With nothing on our doorstep and zero communication, from a customer's perspective this is rather poor service. We did email the brand on the Monday later in the afternoon, and while it was in regards to whether or not Gifted's pre-workout label was correct. Two days later we are still without a reply. At this point we aren't overly concerned about the status of our pre-order. Although if next week we are still in the same situation, we might be a bit more concerned about our $50 investment.

Sales and specials section now online, update on our spike free Stack3d Certified program

New deals section introduced as well as an update on Stack3d's Certified program

Some may have noticed over the past week we have been making quite a few changes to our website, putting together a couple of new areas all of which have been requested at some point. Over the weekend we updated our giveaway results page, and now we have another new section to introduce. The new area can be found in the pages menu linked in the crossbar under deals, on both our desktop and mobile versions. Basically it groups together all our sales and specials posts, giving those who are looking to save some money their very own filter. To add to our very own update, our focus is now on the Stack3d certified section. This is as some may remember, our effort to separate the proud spike free protein powders from the rest, posting lab test results of products brands have submitted. We are just about to get this thing moving after a long search for the right lab, and will hopefully be putting the spotlight on the supplements that deserve it sometime next month.

Value sizes coming to MuscleMed's beef proteins, save with 8lb Carnivor and 10lb Carnivor Mass

MuscleMeds due to release a 8lb Carnivor and 10lb Carnivor Mass

This year has already brought plenty of new variants for MuscleMed's Carnivor, with Carnivor Bars, the caffeinated Raging Bull Series 1lber, and enough flavors to double the supplement's menu. While that would definitely be considered enough as far as adding to any product, flagship or not, it turns out the brand aren't quite done yet. MuscleMeds have in fact got two more products on the way, both variants of current Carnivor supplements. The first item is a new larger size of the original Carnivor, going twice the product's biggest option at the moment with an 8lb bag. The second item is very similar to the larger Carnivor, although instead of the regular beef protein it's a bigger Carnivor Mass volume, with a 10lb bag. Neither the 8lb Carnivor or the 10lb Mass have yet to show up, with unfortunately no official arrival date set. We do know however that when they do fans will only be able to grab the value size Carnivor in two of it's nine flavors chocolate or vanilla, with 100% of Mass's menu expected to be on making it to the 10lb.

Latest hint it's not a protein bar, next Quest Nutrition release could be Protein Chips

Quest Nutrition Protein Chips could be the brand's next release

Yesterday Quest Nutrition started teasing their next new release, which as mentioned this morning we expect to be one of the five the brand talked about earlier in the year. As a follow up to their teaser Quest have dropped a hint, saying that what they have coming is not a Quest Bar. That was of course something we didn't think would be the case anyway. Purely because the fraction of the packaging we could see suggested it was a packet of some sort. While nothing else has been said outside of the hint, we did get sent a picture this morning, one that we will unfortunately not be able to upload. We can however tell that this picture has a product titled Quest Nutrition Protein Chips. Of course with nothing official from the brand we do not know if this is theirs, or if it is what they have coming. We do know though that it definitely looks like a Quest supplement, it matches the hint and portion of the teaser image. But most of all it is one of the things we put our money on back in March.

Something big set for September, Muscle Elements looking to make some noise with pre Olympia announcement

Muscle Elements promising something big for September

On most occasions when a brand says that they have something game changing or big coming, we turn a blind eye. Without any actual information and just the company's word, 99 times out of a 100 it's not going to be anything worth focusing on. Today however Muscle Elements have made the claim that they have something quite extreme on it's way, this being that 1 time out of 100 we are going to take some interest. Of course with 'something big' being one of the most vague statements possible, we have no choice but to speculate and read in to as many things as we can. The biggest clue we have is that Muscle Elements are going to be doing this before the Olympia, and that it is going to make some noise. For us that almost completely rules out the possibility of a new supplement. Making it sound like some sort of an act maybe a donation, promotion, presentation, legal action or signing of an athlete. The list could go on for quite some time, and it does seem like it will as Muscle Elements aren't going to be making their big announcement until September, about a month and a half away.

Latest from USP Labs lands at Supp Central, EpiBURN available just 1 week after IC launch

USP Lab's new EpiBURN Pro now available at Supplement Central

While it may have only been just last week that USP Labs released their Inner Circle deal for the OxyElite replacement, EpiBURN Pro. The new supplement has already started showing up in stores. Quite a few are still listing it as coming soon, Supplement Central however as per usual, is the first retailer with it actually in stock. Based on what everyone else is teasing EpiBURN for, Supp Central also don't have it at that bad of a price with a full size bottle of the fat burner valued at $38.95. No doubt there are plenty of other stockists due to get the latest from USP this week or maybe even next. Regardless, Supplement Central are the first ones, further establishing them as the quickest store to stock.
