    Endurox R4 Flavor Opinions

    I've consumed dozen or so 5lb cans of the Fruit Punch flavor over the past five years and never tried any other flavor. I was a bit turned off by the supposed flavor enhancement they rolled into the formula a year or so ago. The original was already repulsive and they just made it worse, IMO.

    So what's the consensus on the most tolerable flavor? I noticed they have a Chocolate option now -- anyone tried that?

    Have tried Orange, FP and Chocolate - Fruit Punch is the only tolerable option for my tastebuds.

    Chocolate

    Chocolate gets my vote for best flavor. Tried the others before and had to choke them down. I make it a little stronger than called for to make it taste more chocolate-y.

    Lemon Lime gets my vote. I started out w/ Fruit Punch but a buddy turned me on to Lemon Lime and I really like it. Try it.

    Oranj!

    I really dig the Orange flavor...I mean I truly enjoy the taste.

    I also like the chocolate. After a cold ride heat up some water and and the choco powder for a warm recovery drink.

    Am I the only fruit punch person? I dono, I've only had the fruit punch, mainly becuase there was no need for change, it tastes fine, espescially after they made it "ALL NEW BETTER TASTE!", before that I must admit, it was much like choking down chalk mixed with water, but now I actually kind of like the taste.

    You prefer the new fruit punch? Ack. I'd be quite happy if I could find a stock pile of it in the old version (any shop owners out there want to sell off some old Endurox stock???). It had a curious taste for sure, but I find the new F.P. is overpoweringly and artificially tangy and somewhat salty as well, even when I mix it fairly diluted.

    Anyway, I appreciate the responses but it looks there's no universal conclusion here. Just when I thought I could at least assume orange was unanimously hated, cbass replied. At least there seems to be a strong lemon lime following. Chacun à son goût.
