The flavor I chose tasted awful & I hope to have better luck with a different flavor. Bad taste with the Lemonade but the effects from it weren't bad. It has a less caffeine than my old pre workout (25mg less) so if you are used to a ton of caffeine on the daily, this is not going to work for you right away until your body adjusts. I like that there aren't a lot of other ingredients in it but that's a personal preference. Not a bad price either.
