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.

I really love all of these products but they recently did something to the Green Apple which previously would've gotten a 10/10 as well but I don't like it anymore. I highly recommend these as they as just great for a morning/midday pick me up for people (me) who don't like coffee because of everything you have to add to it to make it taste delicious.

Delicious anytime of the day. Pre-workout, early in the morning (not a coffee drinker) or when I'm going on a long road trip to keep me alert. Wish there were more flavor options for the single serving packaging.

This is by far the best caffeine and amino product I have purchased. It has an amazing taste for all the flavours I have tried. The product works just as good as a coffee in the morning. Gives a great kick start to the day and a bonus of getting some amino acids in at the same time. Its great alone, on ice or blended with vanilla protein. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The Concord Grape is a strong subtle flavor that eases onto the pallet. The Juicy Strawberry Burst is a good after flavor but beware because it is very tart at first. The Watermelon flavor is slightly tart but has a great flavor that can be compared to watermelon bubble gum. Regardless of flavor, all the products provide a great pump without the jitters. I have started off with 2 scoops and have moved up to 4 as the bottle indicates and improved my endurance and strength. I love this product and it works great for pre and post workouts.

Overall energy effect is good. Been using the Fruit Fusion Flavour for the last year or so. Wanted to try a different flavour so I went with Peach Lemonade. IMO it tastes awful; something similar to axle grease. Won't be getting this one again.

I love this stuff! It’s the only Amino acid that didn’t make me nauseous. It gives me energy to keep me awake. I like the Strawberry burst, watermelon, orange, and apple. I recommend all of them.

Clean energy, no jitters, all focus. Take it as recommended on the container and you'll be good to go for a long session at the gym. Provided your not already drinking caffeine all through out your day, this energy works great.

This Product was one of the best Amino acids I have used, whenever I am slump or too sluggish to workout this kicks me right in my game, it gives me the energy I need to complete my workout with a sick pump I have already recommended this item to a couple of my buddies so I would highly recommend this product

I use this to wake up at work because my stomach does not like coffee. It works well without giving me those pins and needles most pre-workouts give me, maybe its because I don't use a large dose though. I bought watermelon and fruit punch after trying one that I enjoyed from Costco (I cant find it on the website so I think it was discontinued?). I haven't tried the fruit punch yet but the watermelon is NOT good.

This product is awesome. Great to drink any time! My complain is really with the manufacturer. The 65-serving containers don’t have a seal under the lid. EVERY time I order one, it gets shaken around during shipping and a lot of it comes out. Everything in the box gets covered with it and you lose a lot of product. I only order the 30-serving size now.
