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.

This is such a terrible product. It's outdated formula and ON doesn't care about your goals otherwise the formula would have been updated years ago. They care about the money you're giving them. The formula is frontloaded by Turbine, Beta-Albanians, and Glutamine. You're barely getting any BCAAs and EAAs from taking this. If you're serious about your results than I would suggest you spend your money on a higher dosed EAA product. Also, don't take this post workout. Not a post workout whatsoever. Stop taking this if you're actually serious about recovery and increasing your muscle protein synthesis. The only thing this product is good for is flavoring your gallon jug of water or when you're too lazy to make coffee.

I’ve been using ON Amino for over a year now and boy let me tell you, I have influenced almost 20 people within my workplace in Marion, OH at Whirlpool to drink this stuff! It’s purely awesome. The only change that I hope ON does soon is GET RID OF THE COLOR DYES!!! We don’t need this to look pretty, just taste good. I don’t care if it looks like poo, get rid of the color dyes please and I’ll buy more lemon lime. I will not buy lemon lime anymore until the yellow 5 and 6 are gone. Other than the food dye request, this is awesome stuff!! I highly recommend all of these to everyone. I personally have been buying watermelon, juicy strawberry burst and black raspberry tea mainly because they use beet extract for coloring. I used to drink 1-2 energy drinks a day and drink pop constantly and this has helped me completely get rid of pop. I buy packs of water bottles, put two scoops and drink one in a 10 hour shift. This stuff helps with focus, helps your body repair muscles quicker, helps rid of body aches, it’s awesome!!!

LOVE the Grape! Blue Mojito is a good change up. I like the quick rush I get. Not overpowering to where I get jittery and does not last too long so as to affect sleep. I will drink it during the day at work as a pick me up.

Love it. Although, I will try naturally flavored since they seem to have a lot of sugar and they don't disclose the amount of sugar you get per serving.

Juicy Strawberry burst is easily the best tasting. Tastes just like a pink starburst.

  • 3 White Peach Tea

The white peach tea is much left to desire for... The concept of adding this flavor in their line-up is a great idea but the taste is ... "somewhat lacking". I thought this would taste like a Snapple white peach tea (expected to be artificially sweetened like the other basic flavors) but I was sadly mistaken. Mainly, it is the strange AFTERTASTE that got me somewhat "dissatisfied". First, always use cold water for the tea series, room temperature water just makes it disgusting. However whether you use cold water or not, you can smell that particular aftertaste; I can't put my fingers as to what this taste like but sort of like the tea bag is left sitting in your cup for 2-3 days with the tea leafs out of the bags with a very slight fermentation of baby poop (this is the best way to describe it in my opinion?). You do taste the actual peach flavor for 2-3 seconds and then its that aftertaste. The taste isn't nauseating or make you want to vomit but its a bitter, 'not too good' taste. If you want to try go ahead, its certainly "manageable" to drink if you train your mind to forget the aftertaste. Preferably, I rather would like ON to reformulate the tea series to actually tasting like "snapple-ish" without any bitterness or 'off-taste' to it (whether its artificially and/or naturally flavored); all I care is how it taste like with the same amino energy preworkout content I get with the other flavors.

My little trick is to mix the ON Iced Mocha flavor ENERGY with the ON 100% Whey Extreme Chocolate flavor PROTEIN powder. Helps the flavor tremendously, and is a pretty good iced coffee substitute.

  • 1 Half & Half Lemonade & Iced Tea

I love the peach lemonade and the vanilla latte but the half and half lemonade iced tea is absolutely disgusting. The flavor is terrible and I can’t even drink it. Not only does it leave a bad after taste, it’s hard to drink to begin with because the way it tastes. I will stick with my normal flavors but I would stay far from the half and half. I will note the vanilla latte seems to have changed in flavor slightly. It’s still good but I just think the mix has changed.
