I admit to buying these gift boxes for myself they are such a treat. Been lowcarb lifestyle for 5 years and if you are new or just need a treat, both gift boxes are an awesome way to cheer up your pantry. It's like sending flowers to yourself.
I agree with Julie... this is a great treat for yourself! I am the only one at my house doing the low-carb diet, so one box was enough for me to try a variety of different products. I got the baking box, and WOW!!! So many goodies, and all allowed on my diet! I love this set, and would encourage Netrition to put together some more... such as an Italian food lover's box... pastas, sauces, pizza mixes, bread stick mixes (if there's any such thing), etc. Or other gift boxes. It is a great way to sample a bunch of different products in a category a low-carber might be really missing. :) Definitely recommend a box for yourself or a low-carbing friend!

This is a great selection of protein powders in a wide variety of flavors. My only disappointment is that two of the packets (two flavors of Syntha-6) contain wheat. I might not have bought this had I known. Several others contain egg and soy. They all contain whey and other components of dairy. Most are protein blends. I'll try to remember to donate the Syntha-6 packets to a food drive.
If you spend enough to choose a gift from netrition, you can get the bag of free samples which contains even more (and different) protein powders. Syntrax has a sampler too.
I give this four stars and not five because frankly, not all the proteins in this package are meant for human consumption, and if they are...well then they weren't made for MY consumption. HOWEVER, the beauty of it is, you get a great variety of powders (and one liquid) to try for you to decide what works best for you! So you don't have to blindly order a 4lb tub of powder and pray you'll be able to choke it down. If you can't tell by now, I'm new to the protein powder diet, and have not had much luck with it, but was finally able to find one I LOVE in this package. Thank you NETRITION for putting this package together!! I'm finally going to get the protein my body has been lacking with a smile on my face! :)

Just got this in the mail, and I'm rather disappointed with the variety: with one exception ALL the proteins are whey -- and the exception is casein. It includes no egg, soy, or other protein products, nor any of the combined products, which is a let down. I'd really hoped to compare the flavors of different protein sources.
Also, be warned that the vast majority of the samples are some variety of chocolate flavored, the exceptions I got being being vanilla (1), cookie/cake (2), lemonade (1), and berry (1). If you're not into chocolate, this may be frustrating.
That said, I love the concept, and wow, there are a lot of little packages of chocolate flavored whey to try out in there.

Being a frequent flier at Netrition, I've been building up quite the collection of freebie shaker bottles. They've varied in quality, but even the worst of them have been usable... until now.
The problem I have is that the plastic strainer insert goes in tightly and is next to impossible to remove. I tried using the bottle several times to make sure it wasn't a fluke - at best, it takes a minute or two with a metal fork to get out, but I once had to use a pair of pliers.
Received one of the t-shirts free when I placed an order. Liked it so much that I ordered 4 more after it arrived. 100% cotton, great fit, no shrinkage or loosing shape after many washings. I'll keep ordering them as long as they're available!
The Black is fine but hot. I've been waiting literally years for you guys to bring back the white t-shirts, i have about 6 of them, and they're all getting threadbare but they're my favorite knock around shirts, I still wear them everywhere ... please bring back the white t-shirts !!!
This t-shirt is one of the most comfortable t-shirts I own. They soften up well and have plenty of room in the shoulders. They are thin enough to sweat in throughout a workout and do not hold an odor after a day in the gym bag. I have two of them and I wear both of them at least once a week; that is if my wife doesn't grab them to lounge around in the house first.
I bought three of these and I love them. The blue logos look great on the grey shirt, and the grey will still look good if it gets dirty. The shirt is a medium weight 50/50 blend. Measurements for all three of my size XL shirts are 24" chest and 29" length (center of back), and they are preshrunk.
I got one of these (free) in my last order and expected the smaller version.
This new vitamin box with seven separate segments with individual covers was a very happy surprise. They are nice and deep, thus very accommodating for the large number of vitamins that my husband and I take daily.
I will be purchasing more of them with my next order. They're just perfect, and I will certainly be using them daily.
I like this pill box because its sections are large. Each day has its own inner lid and then the whole box has an outer lid. We have gotten several for my and my husband's morning and nighttime pills.
We had an issue with one that we got that had a defect that did not allow the outer lid to stay closed. Netrition did send a replacement because of the defect.
