Review for: Amin.O. Blue Raspberry more...
Optimum Nutrition has done it again. Another high quality product. I use Amino Energy to keep up my momentum during my workouts and sometimes as a nice pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon. Blue Raspberry is a delicious flavor among all the rest of the flavors under the brand. Very reasonably priced around $20-$25 dollars depending on the vendor, and lasts me about a month and half.

I really like this product. I feel like it really does make a huge difference in my energy, my ability to get up and get moving in the morning and my ability to concentrate on the work I need to get done. Unfortunately, I did have to stop using it because the caffeine is too much for other medical issues I have going on. I recommend trying it though!!

Review for: Orange Cooler more...
Loved it! First time I tried amino energy I bought it at the gym in a pre-mixed bottle, from that point on I was hooked. 15 calories and packed with natural energy, I drank it during my morning workout most days and a few hours after to keep my energy level up. Only great things to say about the entire product line. I would highly recommend this for energy that doesn't give jitters and can be consumed at any point of the day, and great to get you through a workout when you keed the extra kick or just want to feed muscle. Whenever your regular water is getting boring a scoop of it really gets to the point, orange is the perfect amount sweet tangy strange your mouth is looking for!

I love the taste and they give the right amount of energy. I tried so far watermelon, green apple and this is peach lemonade. I can drink them all through the day. It doesn't have horrible acid after taste. The next one will be blueberry mojito) .

Review for: Concord Grape 30 Servings more...
Have been using this product for five years now and it is definitely my favorite ! Not only does it taste amazing but it is super cheap . For someone like me who can not do a lot of caffeine the serving size provides the perfect amount for me to get the extra push I need before a workout . I order this product off of amazon . They have a wide variety of flavors !

Review for: Essential Amino Energy more...
I picked this up on a whim about a year ago because it was on sale at my local 24 fitness. The price being $20 lol. During the past month I decided to change my entire lifestyle and I had been using this to get me into the habit of getting up and into the dance room! I used this to Zumba and I am a happy dancer in that room, without any side effects; sometimes I can get an irregular jumpy heart with these types of mixers. Rhythm not included with drink just with my hips lol. Definitely put it on my wishlist for the days I am am needing an extra punch. The flavor is blueberry mojito and boy does it taste amazing!

High quality product.
When you look at the ingredient, every single one has a purpose. I wish they could get rid of the sucralose but it’s alright.
Usually, caffeine upsets my stomach but I can chug 4scoops after training on an empty stomach with no problem at all.

The blueberry lemonade flavor is great! And actually covers my yucky protein powder so it’s perfect!

I got the pineapple flavor of this and it’s not so bad. I wish I got another flavor but for the cost and the quality it’s not a bad deal. It gave me enough energy to make it through my workout and then some. I got it from GNC and I would recommend it.

Gave me a ton of energy, but didn’t give me the shakes or my heart race. I was not a fan of the taste, it reminded me of a sweet tart. It’s super easy to use. Just add water and shake up in a bottle. Would love to try a different flavor.

I have looked all over for these at decent prices. Amazon sells around $20. And that's the cheapest so far. Has anyone found it at a better deal?
