Sometimes gives me a very terrible stomach ache, like terrible... I’ve never had such awful stomach pains in my life. They only ever happen after I drink this stuff, so all the signs point to this product. If you have a sensitive stomach, I wouldn’t suggest getting this.

I've tried a handful of flavors of this product. Makes my face and fingers tingly, which i dont mind. The feeling goes away after you start working out. The energy it provides last through my workout after a long day of work. I've had experiences where I opened and mixed a new container and the mix is gritty as I drink it. If you purchase this product, make sure you purchase a light color. The blue raspberry is extremely dark, dyes my mouth and lips, and dare I say it...my number 2's are also green and blue. Please use less dye!!

I have been drinking this stuff for at least the last 5 years. I like it. It tastes good. Works good. Not sure if this can continue. I can kinda see they are adjusting the formula a bit. Lately they seem to be doing better on the clumping, so that’s good. I like the icy blue raz and the fruit punch. The only problem is that the amount of dye. This stuff is soooooo bright I mean they cranked the dye up to 11+. Please take some of the dye out – it does not need to be so intense. There is no reason to be drinking this much dye – I mean … dude - holy crap that’s a whole lotta dye. Just cut they dye back like 80-90% or so and the stuff will still be super bright. Seriously though, I loved the Pineapple flavor. I hope that comes back. It was really good and was not loaded with so much artificial color.

If it isn't used regularly the powder will lump up and make it impossible to scoop out.

The Tart Candy Explosion has a great taste and doesn't stain my lips when drinking it. 8/10 only because I need 2 scoops of Original to actually help. If this was offered in the extreme energy line I would use that. But the taste is so good it's hard to go away from it!

Product mixes well and tastes good. Helps me power through those 5am workouts. Plenty of energy, alertness, and drive without feeling jittery.

Purchased Icy Blue Razz. When I mix it in water, I felt it has too much of blue color and it leaves my shaker stained with the blue color. Also after drinking my tongue is all blue which is too bad. Doesn't sound healthy at all considering too much color being put in this. Disappointed with C4 on making such a product with too much of color in it. Have used Fruit Punch flavor before and that was fine and not much color.

Used this for years since I started working out. Moderate caffeine level and it kicks in 15mins or so. One of the best ways to wake up your body after a long day at work. Highly recommend (especially for beginners).
