Mango Iced Tea



Taste : Taking that first sip just takes you back to childhood when momma used to make you that sweet lemon iced tea and you would put 5 scoops of sugar lol .

A good comparison of this would be starbucks mango tea, but this i would say is balanced between mango & tea ..just perfect .. I got home from gym around 7pm and took me about 5 mins to rip through the package and get to this.



Mixing : I only did half scoop as it was late in the day and i like to hit the bed around 10:30-11PM .. Mixed it with around 6oz with couple ice cubes .. since it was half scoop it'll be hard to judge .. but can def tell wouldn't be an issue knowing SNS track history of when coming to flavors / Mixing.





Pink Star Candy



Taste : I really can't place a finger and compare it as im not big of a starbust guy .. taste is good but hard to compare it to anything for me. I felt it was light i did do 12oz with ice, so im sure that plays a huge factor.



Mixing : Mixing not an issue .. few shakes of 1 scoop in 10-12oz w/ ice. I think i had too much ice as my 1st experience.

Tomorrow morning, i will be doing it again before leaving for work but will do just cold water and maybe 8-10oz .. as i think i went overboard with water lol


Overall : Super happy with initial taste .. Will be trying this as Intra on Fri & Sat to gage the caff/energy complex.

I think the Pink Star Candy tastes about as close to a Pink Starburst as you can get at 1 scoop in 8 oz. I haven't tried it in 12 ounces as I generally like my flavors stronger.

The Mango Tea I think is spot on.

I'm hooked on the Strawberry Limeade myself but I'm a huge Limeade fan.

Pink Star Candy in 8oz felt right .. I think i over diluted it 1st time i tried it and have found out where i like it now and can taste that lil starwberry creme from starbust.

Will be doing Mango Iced Tea as intra drink later in the day and report back tommorow.

Nice initial thoughts on taste. Sounds like you enjoyed both flavors. I love pink starburst so definitely will be picking up a tub of these to try out!

I think 8 oz. is right for 1 scoop of the pink star candy.

The challenge is making 1 scoop taste strong/good enough without 2 to 3 scoops being overpowering. Of course for 2 to 3 scoops people would add more water, but we didn't want it to be where they had to drink too too much.

So my favorite drink for the last 2 summers have been starbucks dragonfruit mango .. its so good but im sure very unhealthy with all the flavoring & sugars.

So i had myprotein clear dragonfuit .. i mixed a scoop of that with sns mango iced tea and created a nice little isolate/amino drink and mixed well and tasted good .. dragon fruit ofcourse took over all the flavors but it was very refreshing.

Tried the pink star candy myself this weekend... LOVED this flavor. I used about 10oz (had to dial my normal amount down a bit as I usually try to use as much water as possible) and the flavor for me was a perfect balance of sweetness without being overpowering or diluted. I did add some more water to the second half just to see how far I could stretch it but it def watered it down to where it was not as good... that said, you could def still enjoy it here if you wanted to sip it slower or just like less flavor.

This truly does taste exactly like what a melted pink starburst would taste like... its basically like sucking on one and swallowing a mouthful of the juice (don't even think about making a dirty joke here, you animals) ha. Easily one of my all time favorite flavors for a product like this!

Also i felt that this tasted better for me in like a room temp/a lil colder .. not ice cold w/ icecubes ( how im drinking mango iced tea )

I've actually found that the warmer the liquid is the stronger the flavors are... no idea why tho ha

Could just be taste buds in general. We tend to perceive more intense flavors as temperature goes up.

Intra Workout Experiment.

- What i was taking previously to compare Effectiveness:
Prev Intra Drink : Scivation Xtend Perform ( Black cherry )
Taste : 1/10 .. Effectiveness: 8/10 ( I react very well to peak02 ..only reason i tolerate this bad tasting drink)


Now to SNS Intra
Taste : 9/10 .. Effectiveness : ill say around the same ball park 8/10 as i have only taken it 3 times

Mango Iced Tea - I can drink half and refill it to top and still tastes amazing.

Pink Candy - I couldn't refill as intra .. so i am taking this as a mid day energy drink or morning wake up if i feel like i can go without focusXT.

Overall every happy with the sustained energy. kinda shocked that lil caffeine plus theacrine works very well .. and gets through 1.5-2 hrs workout without ease and recovery have been the same as before ..so nothing negative .. maybe with prolong use i will notice better recovery and can rate this more then 8/10.

But for quick 3 uses as intra, It does everything you can ask for .. yeah it doesn't have electrolytes blend and all .. but i never go for that .. I need amino's and some sort of endurance blend .. which SNS will hopefully accommodate me soon with bringing out peak02 .. lets all bug bis boss for it so GQ can be happy lol

For the past 2 days .. Ive only been able to sleep 5-6hrs on and off due to my 8months old teething .. so have been doing 2 scoops of amino's in the morning with bagel/cream cheese from dunkin ( no coffee ) and 2 scoops have been awesome sustained energy.

I thought about doing Bubble Tea with it myself. My daughter has done it with just the regular tapioca balls and she likes it. She's done it with the Mango Iced Tea and the Pink Star Candy.
