I love Theraflu when I'm feeling terrible. I try to avoid taking these packets unless I'm really REALLY sick as this stuff is extremely potent. One packet puts me to sleep for hours and usually works well at reducing flu-like symptoms. Mixed with hot water, this flavor tastes okay. Its not the best taste, but its also not the worst. I keep half a pack at home and the other at my office for when I get sick (I'm a city dweller and can walk home and quickly go to bed). Definitely don't take this if you plan to drive or operate heavy machinery.
