I’ve been using the Juicy Candy Burst - Candy Shop Series flavor of this product. As with all Cellucor products I’ve tried, the taste is outstanding. The pwo mixes well, leaving no floaters / chunks to swallow. The product is great as a light pwo with only 150mg caffeine and 1.6g of Beta-Alanine. You won’t get any crazy energy or pumps from this, more like a smooth pick me up. If you’re looking for more of an intense pwo, try C4 Extreme Energy. If you’re looking for a lightly stimmed pwo, this product is for you.

Just tried the Juicy Candy Burst flavor of C4 and it's hands down, the best flavored supp I think I've ever tasted. It tastes exactly like you took every flavor of Skittles and let them melt in your mouth. Outstanding. That being said, performance wise it's lacking, C4 in general compared to a few other prime pre workout supps. The label used to say to take 2 scoops for the max effect, but my last tub didn't have that on it, it was only at 1 scoop. Still, I dosed at 2 scoops to get close to what I am used to. That's 300mg caffeine, 3.2 mg beta alanine, and 2 g creatine nitrate. Almost what I like in a pre at that dosage. Needs more pump in it and the focus aspect simply isn't there for me. I would recommend someone who is new to the preworkout world take this pre, or a typical 2 or 3 day a week gym-goer. It is a quality product however, just under dosed for my personal taste. Maybe with the 4 lines of C4 they can come out with a max stim/pump line for tolerant people like myself that competes with....well I won't name them.

Let me start off by saying that Cellucor did a fantastic job with this flavor. It tastes just like a pink starburst, it's a true delight to drink if you're into sweeter supplements. Onto the effects: C4 Original is more of a basic (using that loosely) pre-workout centered around some light stims without much for pump. In this regard, it does fantastic and provided good energy/focus for me despite being on the lower side of stims. I think this is a result of the addition of teacrine (which wasn't in it the last I had C4). Love the flavor and when paired with a pump product, it gave me a steller workout while being enjoyable to drink.
