I got really sick at the end of my college career and turned to Emergen-C to get me through. I'm very picky, and at the time, didn't like anything fizzy. I picked this up at the local drug store for more than it costs at Walmart but I was in a hurry. While this product didn't cure me, it certainly kept me alert and made me feel a little less sick in the process. The raspberry flavor is so much better than the original in my opinion, and was easier to drink.. Overall I like the idea of this product and would buy again, although I'm not 100% sure that it's worth what they charge considering it didn't feel like it fought my cold(s), only alleviated the symptoms a bit.
