    Fruit Punch flavor..why why why?


    I think most people will agree that even real fruit punch tastes hideous. So why in the world are most supplements fruit punch flavored? Is it the cheapest way to go? Seriously, there is nothing more nauseating than that flavor and it is rampant in the supplement world.

    I have had some bad fruit punch flavored supps, but I've been using fruit punch compete from I force & it's pretty damn good. Almost more berry than anything else. 1 of the few supps I will purchase again.

    ^^ Fruit Punch Compete is awesome. I'm not really a fruit punch fan either. Don't hate it though. It's actually my favorite of the 3 flavors and I'm a huge Lemon HemaVol fan.

    I think you're in the minority here. Make a list of 5 flavors and ask the average joe if you had to taste a supplement, what flavor would you feel most comfortable trying?

    Personally I'd rather try brussel sprout flavor than fruit punch. To me, most fruit punch flavors are a combination of sicky sweet and chemicals, almost like Hawaiian Punch but with some saccharine thrown in. Or maybe it's just that at 5:00 in the morning I can't handle something that tastes like a melted popsicle.

    I agree. I hate Hawaiin Punch and similar fruit punch flavors. Some are pretty damn tasty though. Alphamine comes immediately to mind stuff tastes great

    OP must have not tried Alphamine fruit punch yet. Raspberry Lemonade is perfect tasting though.

    I do agree though that some fruit punch flavors out there are bad but that can be said for many different flavors from different companies. It is all hit or miss on personal preferences.

    Cherry is too close to cough medicine IMO.

    Fruit punch is great! Do you leisurely drink supplements? For the intended purpose drink and go

    "What are ya having?"

    "What do you have in a creatine?"

    I hate fruit punch flavor also, it's rarely done right. I did find Alphamine's fruit punch to be surprising it was okay. And believe me that's a huge compliment from me. But Enhanced will come in blue razz Yay!

    Genomyx Origin tastes great in cherry flavor (IMO) and Protocol should have a new cherry flavor available at most places soon. I feared it would taste like medicine but I actually really like it.

    As for OP. I used to say I hated fruit punch flavored supplements (had several that were just BLAH), but Alphamine was really good. Test Powder isn't that bad either. I didn't love it but did enjoy it most of the time and never got sick of it. So maybe I don't really hate it or it just is a matter of which companies flavor it and how.

    Hawaiian punch style fruit punch flavors are terrible, but fruit punch is generally nondescript. It can be almost any type of fruity flavor so there is a lot of potential for supplements labelled fruit punch to be very good.

    Alphamine is an good example. It takes nothing like Hawaiian punch, but it is light and delicious. I can't say I've tried other fruit punch flavors because I avoid it like the plague.

    Sign me up for raspberry, lemon or watermelon...every time.

    The thing with flavors are they all depend on how they are done. Chocolate or vanilla is easy to say it makes a good flavor, but haven't we all had disgusting products (especially protein) with these flavors? Haven't we all had delicious ones?

    I've had fruit punch products that taste gross, but Alphamine is freaking delicious. Flavors all depend on what companies do with them and let's face it we are all different with the flavors we think sounds good. For instance I'm not a big candy apple or apple type flavor fan, but some people are. I don't like strawberry flavored protein shakes, but some people do.

    Anything but fruit punch, I personally think FP flavored products always have a "watery" or water down type feeling to me. Maybe that's me, but if I have a choice, def not buying fruity punches, I'd rather take a real punch.

    had to take advantage of this ^^

    and i agree with others. supp companies need to stop with the fruit punch. i never think to myself "i hope they come out with a fruit punch flavor!!!". to me, its the easy way out. lets just throw some fruity flavors in there and call it fruit punch. that way, it doesn't have to specifically taste like anything.

    on the other hand, it probably is a best seller. just because there is a higher risk of messing up a "specific" flavor. and, the consumer would think its the "safest" option when trying that particular supplement for the first time.

    so, supplement companies, i guess it's ok to make FP. Just be sure to include other flavors!!

    also compete fruit punch IS "the boobies". i NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER buy fruit punch flavored anything. however, for some reason, i gave compete a try. probably because i had the tangerine first and figured the FP would be good.
