lol, not terribly bad but off by 14g. So my 2 scoops are actually equal to about 70g and not 50g.

Can't really be mad at them. I shoulda been weighing EVERYTHING in the first place. Now i can slow down my protein purchases which have been 5lbs almost twice a month! Bet they didn't count on myth buster Rich to shine a little light on their scheme.
Now I need to go weigh my scoop. I have been making them level scoops, just not weighing them. I feel so embarrassed.
