Maybe it's me, but neither ON or Cytosport mix nearly as well in water or hot coffee as Dymatize Elite Isolate. Just came across an old post with a $27 price tag on the 6 lb Cytosport at Costco. Why are prices up so d$@$ much?
Dairy prices are WAY up because corn, the primary food for dairy cattle, is up 400% (because we keep putting it in our gas tanks).
Milk prices are somewhat subsidized by the government, somewhat by grocery stores and major dairies that skim (pun intended) their margins on milk to get your business. So the cost increases are shifted onto milk by-products like whey protein, cottage cheese, sour cream etc. etc.
