I was skeptical to try this because of the price, but it was worth it. I switched from no xplode to this with no issues, and I noticed an impressive difference in energy, strength, and focus, with no crash afterwards. Raspberry flavor is smooth, and the burn is very minimal.

This pwo is ok for some, but not so for me. The ingredient profile is a mixture that doesn't sit well with my stomach and made me feel nauseous. About 40 minutes after taking the upset stomach subsided and aside from previous feeling of sickness the vasodilation is pretty good. By the end of my workout my skin was definitely tighter, but prob wouldn't take because of the sick feeling it induced for me. Good pump though.

I only had a sample - it seems to give good energy but aside from that, nothing too special. The Capsimax seems to be there just so you can "feel" it. They say it doesn't interfere with flavor, but you can still taste the spiciness in your throat.

This has to be one of my favorite pre-workouts to take. It's has research based dosages of ingredients that actually work. The flavors is okay, and can seem a little bitter towards the end when you get the grainy stuff that didn't really dissolve. My only down fall for this product, it the fact that I seem to get really congested after my workouts when I take this. I'm not positive if it's actually the Platinum PRE of something else, but it sucks. Overall, I love the varities and flavors and the effectiveness of this product and would s****est others to try it out!

I like this product. Works well and got good pumps with it. Only discrepancy I have with it is the peppery, burning sensation it gives when you drink it. Must be something they put in it, like putting black pepper in your mouth. Other than that it's a great pwo. Would recommend

I bought a sample of this stuff and it was insane the gains I had with it! I became focused and determined. Also, I became daring. On all of my lifts I upped what I had done the previous week, expecting I'd be able to lift it due to taking the PWO. However, after lifting a heavier weight I was like "Hell! That was easy! Let's crank it up some more!" and I did even better! Great muscle pump that I'd never experienced before. I will say, once you've finished it, don't workout and drink the little bit left in the bottom when you get back to the car - after sitting for a bit the flavour becomes pretty PHWOAH 0_o

Gave me a lot of energy and focus. Tunnel vision, and the urge to just smash weights. Great for energy. Flavor was terrible. Burned my throat the entire time, and tasted awful. So if your looking for flavor, it's not here. But the product itself was great. Absolutely loved the energy and focus. The beta alanine was incredible. And it was a nice idea for the glutamine.

Phabster did not leave a written review for this product.

Let me just start by saying that I got this free because I bought the protein, even though it was free I still expected more from this. But it didn't give me much energy and the taste its horrible. I got dizzy ended up vomiting this . The taste burn my throat.

This has got to be one of my all time favorite PWO's. It does have a hot-spicey kick to it, but I like that, so if you can't handle the heat then this one is not for you. When I train, I train insane and I want a PWO that's going to be intense as well. I never did like the smooth calm focus from other PWO's. This stuff kicks me in the butt and takes me from beast mode, to an in your face, wanna completely annihilate the weights warrior mode. As for flavors, I could care less what the products tastes like as long as it works, and that goes for any supplements i take, if I wanted something tasty I'd go for a glass of tea.

I've given lots of reviews but this will be my first honest to God bad one. This stuff literally burned my throat, lips and tongue. Wth? I can only think the good reviews are by paid reps or someone affiliated with ON. Sure, taste isn't even 20% of the equation to me, but if it pains me to drink it, why wouldn't I just drink just about any other pre workout ever made that doesn't hurt to drink. Total crap product

I got a free sample of the Twisted Apple flavor. This was beyond disgusting. I mixed it properly as per the directions, and it was a pretty colour that didn't s****est "apple". One swallow, and it was quite acidic and bitter. This wasn't "sour apple" - this was "rotten apple". I stayed with it, thinking maybe it would get better. It didn't. At the very bottom of the shaker was all this gritty stuff and when I swallowed it, it burned my throat and esophagus so badly I almost brought it back up. Gave me a bad headache for a few minutes too. I had a good workout regardless, so that's why it gets a 4 for overall quality. I would not buy the Twisted Apple, and based on this experience, I would not be interested in other ON preworkout drinks.

this is a seriously underrated pre-workout. does it have a spicy aftertaste? yes. do i really like it? yes. the taste is very good and unique. i will be using this in the future.

Got a free sample of this and couldn't finish because of peppery after taste. First time I have ever not been able to finish any sort of supplement drink. Average boosts, but taste was awful.
Feb 13, 2014
used this instead of usual pre-wo. worked really well. gave me a super sik pump. as far as taste, the raspberry lemonade wasnt anything to write home about...standard pre-wo supplement taste. twisted apple was a bit better tho. to give u an idea of what i think tastes good - CREATURE: cherry limeade and pink lemonade.

I have mixed feelings here. While it does the job as far as getting a tingling feeling and pump, I despise the spicy after taste it leaves at the bottom of the shaker. Also there are much more effective pre-workouts out there at a more competitive price per serving. I tried it out of my respect for ON's quality products but I was disappointed here.

Typically I stay away from pre workout drinks. After a couple of years I realized if I just took some creatine, BCAA and a cup of coffee, there was no need for it. I've tried many products over the years whenever one is highly recommended. I've been using ON whey ( gold standard) for years and think they provide high quality products that deliver results. So, after reading the label and speaking with friends, I bought the twisted apple. I have to say in impressed! The taste is decent, good for a pre workout drink. It has just enough caffeine to get you going for that after work gym session, with plenty of energy to spare should you decide to up the intensity, which you will! I'm a firm believer in beta-alanine and it has a good quality form, along with citrulline, potassium, and a couple of other established, results driven ingredients. It does NOT have 30 different "proprietary blends" that have a bunch of nonsense fillers with a known supplement in the amount of a mcg just to put the word " creatine" or something in the name. It's a no frills supplement that delivers. I DO wish it had creatine just to be the cherry on top. But if you want a no nonsense pre workout drink, that is simple, effective and clean, try PRE

For those complaining that: it's "too spicy" or it "burns",. SUCK IT UP. Looking past that, it's a great pre. It clumps if not swirled thoroughly, but after 30 seconds of good swirling and chugging: no burn. Raspberry lemonade tastes and smells great. Being as I view supps from a biochemist perspective, this pre- met my neurological / physiological standards. ALL KINDS OF GAINS. tunnel vision kicked in 5 minutes into it. the beta alanine dosage is pretty big and tends to kick in within 10 minutes, so deff time that correctly. the caffeine seems to break down slowly too, so i know it's quality caff, but i wouldn't take it @ night. I used to be a big fan of Jack3D's old formula, then jumped to ASSAULT and Bullnox, but ON's Pre- is similar to those levels and doesn't fall far behind..

Product mixes fine and taste great. No spice here.... Good response time and nice energy boost. All around good product. Put it in a shaker and mix for 30 seconds. Also keep the pillow pack inside, keeps moisture out. Use common sense and the supplement works.

My all-time fav preworkout. Raspberry lemonade is by far the best flavor I've tasted. Great feeling (prob from the caffeine). Gets me motivated. A little spice at the end from the pepper extract. Greatness! Gets ya through a workout!
