Ok guys.. So I bought some Vitargo S2 carb powder and besides the fact it tastes like s**t it DOES NOT mix at all.. It is impossible to keep mixed.. Anyway, can anybody throw some suggestions my way on a good carb mix that either tastes pretty descent or maybe flavorless that mixes with an intra workout?? I have not tried any except the S2 and I personally do not like.. Any good suggestions???

I've successfully used Optimum Nutrition's Glyco-Maize before. Doesn't really taste like anything, but it shakes up well with whey and casein powders. If I recall, it was pretty economical too.

Karbolyn from All American EFX is pretty good. I've used 2 tubs right after workouts.

I've used ON's GlycerGrow. NOW's got one: CarboGain. Both are the same. Fine powders that get everywhere with just a whiff of air, so, be careful. Both mix well, too.
They come in handy. You can also grind up some oats in a coffee grinder and use that for carbs.

This is first time I have been in market for carb powder. I guess it's like anything else, which is a lot of selections.. Ideally, it would be nice to mix with my bcaa grape intra workout because I don't want to mess with my protein post workout shake... I like it too much, and I hate to mess with the combo, lol!!!

Give it a shot. They're inexpensive and you can try out the 2lb tub ON has to see if you like.

Raro or something. Why spend money on expensive carb powder?

Probably the only carb supplement I'd use would be Gaspari Glycofuse, but I wouldn't pay for a carb product. I'd rather eat whole foods.
A post work out protein shake is not necessary. Again, I'd personally rather eat whole foods.

Carbogain. Don't use cold water though cuz it make it harder to mix. But carbogain is like 40 bucks for 2-3 months worth.

How many carbs are you trying to consume via this powder? Some people do not tolerate larger amounts of the first generation carb powders such as malto and dextrose. Do you want something neutral tasting or sweet?

Alri chained reaction taste amazing. Digests super quick, no stomach bloat and mixes great.
I also love Karbolyn. Tastes great and my stomach has no problems with digestion

If I am not going to dilute the drink vary much I use maltodextrin. If I am going to dilute it a great deal I just use Gatorade powder.

I thought karbolyn was way too sweet.
If I want sugar, ill just drink koolaid. Cheaper.

Matt's Glycomyx is far and away my favorite carb supplement.
If looking for a fast/postWO type of carb instead, Karbolyn always gives me wicked pumps and fullness.
