OMG, I love this stuff! Barely needs sweetener, for me, as I am really into cacao. Taste is better than the mushroom version, to be sure, likely because of the beet and hibiscus. This one's so good, though, that I think I can mix it with the cordyceps one and make up for the taste of the other! SO GOOD, don't hesitate!!! Unless you want to drink at night ... might keep some people up. Mmmmn, from a cacao connoisseur.

I'm sick of everything being saturated with sugar my body doesn't need or want (nor do I want stevia, yuck), so this product is FANTASTIC! Rose hips taste great to me, so that's part of why this stuff is great. Even got a body rush upon first trying it. YAY! I love Madre-C! Real food vitamin C and no extra crap (including stupid colors or other unnecessary additives). Thank you, Madre Labs!

I love this product, as the formulation is superb. The only thing missing from it is schizandra. I have it in powder form and add it myself. Not sure what this stuff is doing for me just yet. I have no idea why others find it too tart or bitter, as it tastes fine to me (not to mention, you can mix it with other things). It's medicine, after all. I'm so thankful it's not sweetened!!! Popular Vitamin C packets as well as some probiotic blends are FULL of sugar. Sugar depletes my immune system in an instant, as well as aggravates yeast, so it's pretty ridiculous to consume a bunch of sugar with either of such products. So I'm thrilled that this product is just herbal medicine and that's it. I will say this: there was ONE time I consumed a certain tincture that rendered my tongue temporarily altered, so when I immediately afterward drank this product, it tasted VERY bitter. But that did not stop me from drinking it, and it only happened the one time due to that unrelated factor. I guess it just depends on how badly one needs medicine ...

I gave it two stars because it was probably great when fresh, but the set I got was bad. Had to wash it off and put something else on to get the rancid taste off. Nasty! Hope to try a fresh batch later. I do NOT recommend the clearance ones near expiration.
