Review for: Concord Grape more...
This is by far the best tasting pre-workout powder I've ever tried. It completely Blends into your water leaving no chunks behind and the grape flavor is really good. The salesman at GNC recommended this when I asked for the best pre-workout and I think he was spot-on. I can feel a difference when I work out with this onboard beforehand. It gives me a really good rush of energy but not too crazy jittery, and it helps with endurance too. This helped me get in good shape and I highly suggest trying it out.

Hi hello, I cannot live without this stuff. We have 4 flavors in the pantry at all times because it's such a staple. Way more effective and tastes better than energy drinks. My favorite flavors are watermelon, green apple, and blueberry lemonade, but my husband is really into the vanilla chai. Excellent product, definitely recommend for workout boosts and mid-afternoon slumps.

I love this pre-workout, the taste is great, the price is good for the quality, and it doesn’t make you feel like your heart is going to explode. I had issues with finding a pre-workout that helped my energy level while not making me feel like my chest was going to cave in and THIS IS PERFECT! It’s decently priced and works like a wonder I would recommend and buy again!

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...
Bought this a my local vitamin shoppe, i usually sip my bcaas throughout the day. Flavor is good, helps give a sweet taste to your water if you’re craving something that’s not plain water. Not sure that i would buy again as i didn’t see any benefit to my muscle recovery or energy levels. But flavor is 8/10.

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 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?
