Taste OK - Ingredients Most Important
 January 20, 2013
"Taste is fine, especially when mixed with something. Taste additives are usually sweeteners and would reduce its benefit as a pre-workout drink and completely cancel any benefit as a post workout recovery drink."

"The taste is horrible. I do not say this lightly as I have a limited sense of taste and can stomach a lot of different exotic food, but I have trouble drinking a mix of the recommended values.
After I have forced down 4dl my urine gets very yellow, almost green even if I drink a lot of water during the day. So there is a lot of nutrients going straight through you."

Great ingredients, horrible flavor!
 December 6, 2011
"I would have no problems giving this product a full 5 stars based on the nutritional/supplemental content, but the flavor of this powder is excruciating! It takes everything I've got to choke it down. If it didn't have the ingredients it has, it'd be in my garbage can."

Great idea...HORRIBLE tasting
 November 16, 2011
"This is my wife's account, but I have to comment...This could be the perfect product...BUT, the tastes is the worst that I have experienced in protein/supplement powders. If I were to describe the flavor, it would be: sour/buttermilk/vanilla. YUK!
It is an excellent blend, but I can't get past the flavor.

Whoa this actually tastes good!
 September 24, 2011
"My son (20 years old, I know, I know...but he still lives with us...) can not swallow vitamins so I have been trying to get him every liquid and gummy vitamin on this site. He will skip days taking the liquids because he hates them all. Then I found this- this magic solution of vanilla goodness! My god this tastes good! I can't imagine anyone not liking this, the vanilla flavor is very strong. I used 2% milk and mixed it in my magic bullet. ~Smooth and perfect!"
