Have tried, unflavoured, Tropical Punch and Green Apple and am now hooked on the Green Apple flavour - soooooo tasty!
The unflavoured one is pretty palatable in my opinion but I don't think I will ever get passed the Green Apple flavour from now on.
I mix this with Spirulina every single day. Helps take the "pond" taste away from the Spirulina and makes one hell of a healthy drink!
