I didn't have any issues with the flavor of Somnidren. I thought it tasted like orange with a slight tropical aftertaste. Something like orange/mango.

Sadly, it had the opposite effect on me with sleep. I emptied the packet under my tongue and held it there until there was enough saliva to swish it around, probably a total of 45 seconds in my mouth. About 15 minutes later I started getting that anxious feeling and when I did go to sleep, I woke up 5 times in a 7 hour span. Worst night of sleep I've had in a while. I've had great results with MST's other products, but I can't recommend this one...
