    Question how does LG BC+EAA taste?


    ive been looking to substitute xtend for something with a better profile, however i do not want to sacrifice taste at the same time. i tried purple wraath and even though the profile is perfect, the taste isnt =/ so i was wondering hows LG science BC+EAA?

    well its a lighter flavor than xtend, not as overwhelmingly sweet, but a very nice blue raspberry flavor.Think of it as a less sweet version of those blue raspberry icee's we would all drink as kids.

    purple wraath grows on you within the first couple days. then it becomes crystal light for your water

    purple wraath not growing on someone is unheard of lol, first serving was
    "wow they made grape cough medicine flavor", second serving was
    "this stuff is addicting" lol. Have you tried both lemonade and grape?

    i tried the lemonade yesterday in 32 oz of water. it tastes funny when it actually goes down. i dont know how to describe it exactly. i guess its not "smooth" i dunno. as i was finishing it i kept wondering if i could drink this everyday. "I" feel that every xtend flavor outdoes purple wraath.

    bc+eaa is not very sweet, how many scoops would be recommended for to fill 2L jug? normally 20ish grams does me fine with xtend.

    In a 2L jug id say about 6 scoops would work for sure.

    ryaroberts, I've been using Xtend for a few years now. I just ordered a tub of LG BC+EAA from NP. My favorite Xtend flavor is watermelon and second favorite is apple. I'll tell you what the LG tastes like compared to those two - I think it will be good and tasty.

    I too have been looking for EAA with flavor. I may just have to buy bulk and flavor it up myself if I don't like the LG.

    ryaroberts, NP FedEx order is "on vehicle for delivery" today, so it should be here by the time I get home from work. I'll keep you posted.

    Edit: Never mind, the tub is being shipped separately and it is still processing at NP

    Good product overall. Taste is very mild depending on your scoop to water ratio. I typically mix about 3-6 scoops in 32oz of water to consumer during my workouts and the taste is pronounced, but not sweet like xtend. I would recommend it.

    Yeah I find it pretty good during workouts, just I find products with to much taste tend to leave me feeling slightly sick. Glad you enjoyed this product though man

    On the plus side, I got two tubs of Xtend back. I gave them to my workout partner early last year, one Lemonade one Grape and he never used any of it. I'm almost out of Watermelon and asked him how he liked his Xtend so far and he tells me "I'm not using it"... !!! So, I politely asked if I could have them back if he's not going to use them at all and I got them back today, and they're the large tubs

    lg's is a nice smooth flavor. try to find your sweet spot in terms of water and you will be all set (of course based on the amount of scoops)

    your friend is retarded. (hopefully not literally) those two flavors are my 2nd and 3rd favorite next to watermelon.

    Nah he is pretty awesome, he is the closest thing to a best friend I have right now. He simply could not down the Xtend during/after exercise - he said it stirred up his stomach and made him feel like vomiting... So no worries, but I do wonder how he can drink 2+ scoops of BSN NO-Xplode 5 minutes before lifting and not get sick; if I ever did that (and I have a couple of times) I'd be projecting Xplode all over the wall... not good.

    Either way, now I have four large tubs of Xtend to last me for at least 1 1/2 years (watermelon, apple, grape, lemonade; I forgot I had unopened tubs of watermelon and apple). If I could just get my LG BC+EAA I'd be set

    I enjoy the taste of bc+eaa. I've only used a few servings because I am trying to finish up the Xtend I have first....but it is a smooth taste. If you drink too soon after shaking you do get that always present foam like most bcaa products...and the foam does smell like amino's....but do not let that smell mask the taste. I was worried once I smelled it because usually with protein's i've had that give off that scent, the taste is usually awful...in this case it was different.

    For optimal taste and workout supremacy, pre w/o I mix 1 serving bc+eaa with 1 serving of warrior melon ragnarok. The taste is out of this world.

    youll like that combo even more now that we have watermelon/kiwi flavor coming out, as well as grape! (in addition there will be an extra half gram of bcaa's per serving, making it 4.5 bcaa, 4g eaa and 2g glutamine!)

    I find it to be very mild in taste, and quite pleasant. Obviously, you can make it stronger or more diluted, depending on water ratios. Definitely not as overpowering as Xtend. It mixes well with others too. Good luck!!

    So I just opened it and fixed me a serving. It tastes pretty good, since it does not have citrulline malate like Xtend it does not have a tart taste. I like it and I'm glad I ordered it because I'm taking a break from citrulline malate.

    Is watermelok/kiwi a flavor by itself or are they two distinct flavors coming out?

    ... so I could not resist and so far I've had three servings today. Is it possible I'm addicted to this already?

    yep, one flavor as the two are supposed to accompany each other and work in synergy to please our taste buds to the max!

    Consumer feedback: It would be great if the powder actually dissolved 100% in water. No matter how much water I add it always leaves blue particles on the shaker or glass, even if I shake the container before scooping out the powder to ensure near-equal distribution of ingredients.

    yep, even the instantized bcaa products dont mix any better than ours. amino acid supps wont mix fully no matter what we do, again, in a shaker ive had zero problems whatsoever with the mixability of this or almost any bcaa or eaa product.
