Tasty, and good for you
I started using this stuff about a month ago, and have really liked it. The vanilla tastes great (to me--YMMV), it mixes amazingly well with water, and it really does help take the edge off after a long workout or day of hiking/climbing. I often find it hard to eat solid food after a really hard day, no matter how hungry I am, but this stuff goes down easy, and it helps you rehydrate. I drink it on the drive home after long hikes. If I'm still hungry when I get home, I eat a normal meal. But in the mean time I've avoided resorting to fast food.

The real deal
So, I must gloat/confess that one of my family members is now in charge of Quality Control at cytosport. and i get their products for free.

I LOVE this after a super hard day in the mountains or training.
I have a big problem getting enough calories after an endurance workout, but this is part of my solution. I really do feel better if i use this after a long run or intense climb.
Tastes quite good.
