Excellent flavor and easy to mix.
Great product.
Excellent flair, not too sweet and not too light. Mixes well and easily with no clumping. Will definitely continue using this product.

Gets it done ?
I'm used to more of an AGHHHHH feeling from other brands. It's nice though that it burns off without jitters or that weird 'internal' feeling.

Blueberry Lemonade is like a popsicle in summer
Hands down my favorite flavor of any supplement. I've tried all kinds of flavors from watermelon, fruit punch, strawberry, chocolate to vanilla and across multiple brands. I usually struggle to keep drinking them because they're just so bad. As soon as I tried ON's Blueberry Lemonade, it was just like having a rocket pop from my neighborhood ice cream truck I had as a kid in summer. It might be sweet for some people, but for me it's easy to gulp down every time.
I recommend not taking it during or right before working out if your sessions last 60 mins or less. If you drink coffee regularly, either cut back or take this in place of your coffee as long as it's within 30-45 mins of your workout.

The taste is delicious, dissolves fairly well. Only using 1/2 scoop, may try increasing to full scoop.

Love it!
I'm really happy with this pre-workout. I maintain a lower caffeine tolerance so I don't need as much. Some days I take a half scoop, others a whole. It's not overwhelmingly powerful but I definitely feel the effect and it really helps power through workouts. The flavor is also really good! Only tried the watermelon so far but it tastes just like a jolly rancher and I look forward to drinking it. Dissolves well in water too.

why does make you jittery what does it contain?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Beta alanine
Does this have sugar???
A shopper on May 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Maybe you should tweak your algorithm that diverts questions to customers vs. answering directly. This is just an ingredient question - I would think you would want your customers to answer questions related to how they use the product, or how effective it was for them. Do you really expect customers to go look at the label and answer this type of question???
