    Focus XT Cotton Candy (4/15 exp date) flavoring?


    I just received this, and it seems the flavor is much weaker than my previous 2 tubs of Cotton Candy from last year, but the effects are as expected.

    Even the smell of the powder is barely recognized as cotton candy. My empty Cotton Candy containers has a much stronger smell than my new one, lol.

    It just tastes like a very watered down version.

    Is it just me?

    Since this tub continues to provide the effects I desire, I will not be asking for a refund. Maybe I would if the taste was really bad, but this is just borderline OK, lol.

    If I remember correctly, the powder coloring of my previous Cotton Candy were much darker, too. Also, the powder was thicker and clumpier. My current one is very thin-like.

    My current cotton candy's pink color looks even lighter than the pink lemonade flavor.

    Is there a way I can get a sample/serving of Cotton Candy from somewhere, for comparison to my current stash?

    Cotton Candy has always been lighter than Pink Lemonade if I remember correctly...haven't had Pink Lemonade in a while though.

    I'd send you some, but I finished my last Cotton Candy tub a little while ago. Another rep may offer, but that's the only possible samples.

    Glad to see MW got you hooked up. I don't have any cotton candy on hand, so it would be a few weeks until I would have been able to get it out.

    I received your package.

    It turns out that it's the same exact thing as my current stash of cotton candy.

    I guess my mind was playing tricks on me, lol. Maybe getting used to the caffeine-free fruit punch has spoiled my taste?

    Anyways, thanks for the samples!

    Glad to hear this was the case and it's settled now.

    Fruit Punch is indeed very good, like drinking Kool-Aid.

    Haha, don't feel bad, one of our reps called me with the exact same scenario a couple months ago about a different flavor. I had one on hand from the same lot and it tasted fine, so I called Steve, had him pull one from the warehouse floor and it tasted perfect as well. flavoring was identical and no complaints were received about the lot from the public

    These things happen, and pulling a tub or shipping samples makes sure we have it on point.
