Cool Citrus tastes like soap, Tropical Fruit tastes like shampoo.

Great for reducing build up of lactic acid in muscles during workouts and is wonderful as a recovery drink.

Been using this product for over 10 years on long distance rides, including centuries.

Flavor Name: Tangy OrangeSize Name: 4.5 Pound
As a distance runner, I have been a dedicated user of Cytomax since 1994. It's smooth, tastes great and delivers an even dose of the right blend of carbohydrates to help sustain energy levels. More importantly, it doesn't leave me with a "sugar crash" the way that some other popular name brands do.

The effect of Cytomax and reduction of perceived exertion/lactic acid buildup is evident anytime; however, it is most pronounced during summertime, when the body is working harder during longer training sessions. I would recommend following the product's directions to consume this before, during and after the training periods to obtain maximum effect.

Before the advent of the Internet and E-Commerce, I had tried others that were popular and commercially available, when I could not obtain Cytomax. Even recently, I obtained a sample of the EAS equivalent, which was highly touted. The bottom line is that all else pales in comparison to this product.

Flavor Name: Cool CitrusSize Name: 4.5 Pound Verified Purchase
Remember when Coke came out with their new formula. It was a disaster for them. The company finally relented and brought back the original formula after losing significant market share. This is the same situation. I have been using this drink for years (Cool Citrus and Tropical Fruit) and I have been very happy with it. I am even subscribed to these mixes through Amazon's subscription program. I am ending those subscriptions and I'm not getting this stuff anymore. I recently received 4.5 pounds of Cool Citrus through the subscription program and didn't know that they changed the formula until I went on my ride and took my first few sips -- YUK!!! An excellent description another reviewer used to describe this stuff. The graphics on the packaging has changed with a small caption "Now with Stevia". I mixed 2 scoops with 24 ounces of water just like I used to except now this stuff with Stevia tastes like a rotten grapefruit. Maybe I'm mixing it too strong, but this is the amount stated on the label. I don't know the reason the old formula was abandoned. Did it contain potentially banned substances or dangerous ingredients? I hope not, but I know I can't stand the new formula. I would give the old formula 5 stars, but this stuff isn't worthy.

New Coke?...seems the Cytosport folks are going to have to learn this lesson the hard way. I'll not purchase Cytomax again until they return to the old formula or at least improve the "new" one as it currently tastes terrible.

Hate!!! the new cytomax with stevia. If I wanted weird sweeteners like stevia, I could buy Hammer products, which I also despise. You have lost my business cytomax, and I'm really bummed because you had one of the few products that didn't upset my stomach.

I have been drinking the former formula for years and I loved it. Now the new stuff tastes like crap. I ordered 4 large containers and will return all of them, it is the worst tasting stuff ever. Bring back the old formula.

Been using this product for over 10 years on long distance rides, including centuries. Have tried them all. As another reviewer said, this isn't a "tasty" drink to have on the patio, but if you want to keep your legs from cramping, this stuff WORKS!! I won't go on a long ride without it.

I have been using Cytomax regularly for about six years now. I cannot preach the benefits of this product enough. It really does beat the burn. The percieved exertion levels, the lowering of lactic acid levels in muscle and the subsequent enhanced recovery are all truly part of the package. I frequently use it before bed when I know I will only have a limited time to sleep (i.e. 3-5 hrs) and have found that I will have deep restful sleep and awake feeling invigorated. It is also a handy hangover drink according to some of my past roomates. I have been encouraging other fellow runners, triathletes, cyclist, backpackers, mountaineers, etc to try the product and have recieved similiar feedback. Many nice climbing/outdoor gear shops have the individual packets available if you wanted to demo the product.
