I couldnt put the taste to a product but now that you say it, it DOES tase just like Robitussin! I have been loggingand I like it thus far...only on day 2 but it has been pretty good to me. I usually us a pre with 1,3 in it and this isnt as but it is cleaner and smoother than 1,3. I feel the affects for atleast 3 hrs after wo with no crash in appetite. How has your appetite been so far?
