OPTIMUM TRUE STRENGTH

QUALITY

There are times when you want a hefty dose of caffeine for pre-workout performance. But on other occasions, like first thing in the morning or a late afternoon pick-me-up, what you’d get from a cup of coffee is more appropriate. ON’s Essential Amino Energy™ offers the best of both with a formula that delivers 100mg of caffeine from natural sources per 2-scoop serving. Decrease or increase the energy level as the occasion demands. Each serving provides 5 grams of micronized amino acids.

I used to drink ZipFizz every day instead of coffee/tea/soda. I now drink Amino Energy. It's about half the price per serving than ZipFizz (though I still drink ZipFizz on occasion). I found Amino Energy in the Fruit Fusion flavor at Costco (they no longer sell it). So I found it and a plethora of other flavors on bodybuilding.com. Below are my individual reviews of the flavors. I just ordered a few new ones that I haven't tried yet and I will add reviews of their flavors later. Grape - tastes like a grape Gatorade or KoolAid (not really concord), but it is really good. Blueberry Mojito - very refreshing and not too minty. One of my favorites so far. Fruit Fusion - Kind of a fruit punch that is way better than most fruit punch flavored drinks. Really good. Peach Lemonade - This is the only one I have tried that I won't buy again. Not bad, but more of a peach iced tea flavor than lemonade. Still refreshing and drinkable. Watermelon - So far this is my favorite. It tastes like a watermelon Jolly Rancher.

There is no yucky after taste which is amazing! It mixes really well and quickly as well. It looks, smells, and tastes like a regular grape drink. One serving size(two scoops) has 100mg of caffeine. One scoop in the morning was more than enough energy and focus to power through my morning routine. I would recommend starting with one and only using 2 if it is necessary.
