Default Weight Gainers

wtf is up with weight gainers and having so few servings per container. i've been looking at products like optimum nutrition gainer: Pro Complex Gainer - Get Big, Not Fat! - On Sale Now! | Muscle & Strength and others of the sort but they're all not worth it in my estimation if there's only 14 servings per container. Does anyone know of any quality weight gainers for a reasonable price that will last me more than 2 weeks?

I like to see what gainer will give me the most cals. for my money. I also take into account other nutrient values but I'm mostly concerned about how many cals I get for my buck.

its not easy for most people, its easy for some people and at that, at a certain point unless you buy really expensive and illegal "VITAMINS" its hard for everyone to pack on good solid muscle. if your a person who drinks more than one protein shake a day you wouldn't want to drink more than one of the heavy weight gainers a day. they are heavy shakes to carry around. for me they actually supress my appetite so i stay away from them anyways. stick to low calorie multiple times per day thats my thought.

I would watch the sugar levels of all of these weight gainers especially muscle juice, here is my weight gainer:

2 scoops protein
2 tablespoons peanut butter or more
2 scoops ice cream or yogurt
1 Banana
Ice/Milk

Need more calories add more peanut butter or ice cream, works for me

One of the best gainers IMO is Universal Nutrition's Real Gains. Lots of bang for the buck and it has a pretty good profile!

Universal Real Gains (per serving / 3.5 scoops)
Micellar Casein - Yes
Sugar - 5g
Fructose - No
Calories from Sugar - 3%
Inulin - Yes
Fiber - 5g
Total Calories - 610
