So I’ve been enjoying “■■■■■■■” or “Jimmy Joy” or “Plenny Shake” or whatever you’re calling it this month, for the past half year. Bought a 30-bag pack and now I’m up for another batch! I’m normally having about 2/3 of a bag or 2 shakes every day in addition to normal food.
Been increasing workouts as a hardgainer and for this batch I was thinking of the “Sport” bags, thinking it would be a more optimised blend with higher calories and protein (kind of like a “mass gainer”), but turns out it’s basically the same as the regular one, in a slightly bigger bag?
Comparing 100g of each, both have 26g protein (advertised only on the “sport” page as having 26g protein, which is hilarious. “Extra calories in the form of carbohydrates and increased protein content for you gym rats!” is just flat out lies and false advertising, the regular actually has slightly MORE carbs and calories (48g vs 51g, 392kcal vs 407kcal) and the SAME protein content), and carbs, fat and fiber content is basically the same, within a few percent (48g vs 51g (lol), 9,1g vs 10g, 6,4g vs 6g), as well as all minerals and vitamins being the same. The Sport has more salt. (Yay?)
The Sport costs €0,98 per 100g, the Regular costs €0,95 per 100g using 30-bag pricing.
The Sport has only Banana flavour.
All of this is using the PDF nutrition facts and the descriptions provided on the Plenny shake and Plenny shake sport pages.
Why does the Sport exist at all, am I missing something?
Normally I’d just compare and make an informed choice, but I felt the need to make a post about this because flat out false information in descriptions and names of products hiding the actual opposing information in the nutritional information makes me angry.
I like the product though.
