I have to say its a really good size tub this comes in, its the size of a 2lb protein tub and its filled over half way and uses the regular protein scoop, I just opened this evening and first thing I did was smell it.. I cant make out what this smells like.. at first it resembles fruit punch but something else takes over the smell... I also wanted to taste it so i licked my finger and scooped some... I could feel the fruit punch taste but quickly it fades away and leaves me with a cinnamon taste... ohh, and my mouth felt numb for a while, i think that the beat alanine kicking in, if not then I'd like to know what it is
I took my first serving 30 minutes before my workout, I mixed AS with 8oz in a shake bottle and mixed it, the taste was good I could definitely fell an initial spike in taste of the fruit punch, maybe thats b/c the that was when the drink felt the coldest, I can tell this will really taste better mixed in cold water, mixability was really good considering it was mixed in that small amount of water i did not get any lumps at the bottom of my cup, there was one thing i did not enjoy, it was the foam at the end of the drink, I liked the drink flavor but when it came to the foam it just didn't taste the same. One my second drink I found the sweet spot for mixing AS, use a spoon instead of shaking the bottle.
One thing I noticed while I was shaking drink the lid wanted to come open, my suggestion to LG Sciences is even if they resolve the foam taste to add a warning in the label stating "Do no shake", this will not encourage ppl to shake AS and create too much foam!
