2 types of protein supplements, which for lean bulking

Relatively new here so please take it easy.
I have always struggled to drop my body fat% due to my lifestyle so would rather avoid packing on anything in the first place, even if gains are slower.
 
Currently I have Diet whey protein which I have 2 servings a day of:
per 50g serving:
182Kcal
2.5g fat
6g carbs
34g protein
 
The local supplement shop has Boditronics mass attack juggernaut at a good price, which is:
150g serving:
650Kcal
57g protein
69g carbs
14g fat
5g of creatine monohydrate
 
I dont eat a huge amount, typically:
Breakfast
banana
serving of porridge
vitamins
 
11am ish
Sandwiches which are usually cheese and chutney
1 serving of protein shake 50g
 
1pm
sandwiches cheese and chutney
 
6pm
Tea
generally a good portion of meat with few veg
serving of pure orange juice
 
9pm
protein shake
 
Dont currently eat any kinds of biscuits, ice cream, chocolates etc. also dont drink alcohol at all or smoke.
I am 6' 5" weighing around 101kg and doing a 5x5 to exhaustion.
 
Is there room in my routine for a serving of something like the mass attack without packing on any fat or should I avoid it?
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks.

    Neither - get a normal whey protein.

    Whey isolate for me. I eat whenever I feel hungry though keep the fat off with cardio.

    Looking at the whey isolate from myprotein it looks very similar in nutritional values to the stuff I have bought.
    One issue I have is how many calories etc should I be consuming and also how this relates to muscle growth?!
    I need to find some articles.

    Well hypertrophy can occur when in a calorie deficit, especially when on a cycle, though better to be in surplus for maximal gains. I never bother counting calories personally.

    I struggle with the whole concept of the off-the-shelf weight gainer type stuff.
    If you are at a point where you are struggling to consume enough whole food, then make a smoothie (or eat more eggs).
    The answer is usually a combination of addressing gut/digestive health and finding foods which are easier to digest.
