"Taste: So far I have tasted orange and grape flavours and grape is not the best tasting. I'm wondering if grape is a hard flavour to synthesize. I once had a grape flavoured pre workput by another company and it tasted even worst than this flavour. Very chemical.
Orange on the other hand tastes like cordial. Concord Grape is still drinkable but I tend to gulp it down to help mitigate the taste.
Does it work: I use this as a pre workout and have found that I need 2 servings (4 scoops) for it to work. And it works great. For some people this might be a draw back as it makes it 15 servings per canister but then the price is under $20 so in my mind it is still worth it. Obviously 65 servings is better value.
Why I buy this: The caffeine -- 25mg per scoop-- is quite low and is taken from green tea and green coffee beans.
Also it contains BCAAs so I don't use an intra anymore, I just rely on this and my post workout protein shake for BCAAs.
And .... I trust ON as a company. They have been around for a very long time and use quality ingredients."
"No jitters. No heart palpitations. Starts working immediately so I can wake at 0400 and begin my workout with lots of energy, and does not keep me up at night bc it wears off by dinner time(using 3 scoops). Got me through intensive INSANITY workout and I was NOT in great shape (just had ~10lb baby, 5'4", 217lbs). My husband and I should have stock in this product bc we buy so often. Tastes great! I even added sparkling water and made a soda! Gets me through an 8 hour workday at a preschool, with only ONE serving. Does not have a bunch of unnecessary chemicals. I have recommended to so many people and everyone loves it! SO GLAD VITACOST SALES IT NOW!! :) I would recommend individuals to test their tolerance to caffeine and start with 1 or two scoops first."
"I have tried all the flavors and by far this is the best tasting. Like grape Koolaid! I use it before and during my workout. Definitely notice a difference in my quality of training and recovery too."
"I have used this stuff twice, about 6 months. Once it was for a 3 hour mountain bike race, the other was a 27 mile mountain bike ride. The only two times I've ever cramped during a ride was the two times I've used this amino energy. I will not make that mistake again. I've used BCAA's from a national chain store, and had really good luck, although it was straight BCAA's, without the energy blend.
I will say it tastes better than most BCAA's, that's why I gave it a 3. Maybe it works for other people, just not me."
"The taste is amazing, the results are too. I drink this for a casual energy boost, and for pre-workout(just add more scoops) and man does it do the job. I don't get jittery at all and I feel energized and ready to do work in the gym."
"I love this stuff!! It taste great and it doesn't give me the jitters like so many other energy drinks. It mixes up perfect. I tried another brand that was cheaper and it left little balls of mix (yuk!)."
"Love this product! Tastes great & gives me extra energy & increased endurance during my workouts. No jitters. Reccommended serving is 2-4 scoops (which are about the size of a teaspoon). I only use 1 scoop & it still works great. 2 scoops are ok, but it starts to taste very sweet. I can't imagine what 4 would taste like."
