Back to the original question.  I have fed this stuff to my bees, I have no idea what my results are, cuz I am still a newbie.

I think that when this stuff is sold, some instructions for newbies should be included, such as, when and how much to feed...

Thanks ~*~

I agree with John, I don't like being blindly "baited" into giving product feedback to a manufacture, guised as a member.
Not that my answers would be any less truthful, or frank.

Given the variety of people that can belong to a forum (newbies or even people without bees), I would question the 'value' and 'truthfulness' of any forum opinions (even my own) for the use of steering product development/marketing.

I also don't like supporting buying a product when the manufacture only cares about their product.
To me, it feels like the manufacture is all business and little or no practical beekeeping.
I like to see manufactures participate in the beekeeping community.

I have used the product with good acceptance and reasonable results (for as little time as I have used it).
I will likely continue to use it, despite being a little bothered by the survey beng taken here.
There is nothing new under the sun. Only your perspective changes to see it anew.

I totally agree with you DayValleyDahlias I ordered some, and their was little instruction with it.
I'm going to pitch it! because I don't know what's in it, and I'm not comfortable giving it to them.
Not to mention spamming a bee forum is BEE.S

I don't use pollen substitutes or any type of bee food but if I were I'd want instructions that were specific on how much to feed, at what intervals etc.  The Manufacture's should also mention that such artificial bee nutrients are SHB lures and care should be taken to feed lightly at irregular intervals to minimize the SHB impact. 
I've known several beekeepers who never had an SHB problelm to speak of until they bought and feed something akin to Mega-bee.

Thank Heaven,

No SHB here!  At least not yet.  I am not sure why, but I am extremely grateful!
