What Exactly is 'Original' Flavor Surge

I’m surious what original flavor Surge Recovery actually tastes like. Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks

I had bought Surge Original flavor because somebody on here said it was their favorite. To me, it tastes like stale bread with sugar.

My advice? Add some honey to it.

Original is OK, way to sweet. Raspberry is OK, barely. Chocolate’s great though. In fact, I hate root beer and now they’ve removed the vanilla, but the chocolate is actually so good I can drink it in perpetuity!

Original reminds me of sponge cake flavor.

It tastes exactly like angel food cake.

“exactly” is an overstatement, for sure!
my vote would be for chocolate, unless you’ve tried one of the other flavors and been happy with it…

Very similar. I personally love the original flavor.

I agree that it tastes like angel food cake.

Personally I have tried the Original Flavor, Raspberry, and the now defunct Root Beer Float and all of them have tasted good. I find that with protein shakes after a few servings I just adjust to the taste. (I cant wait to try chocolate though)

i would say it SMELLS exactly like angel food cake. But the taste, waaaaaaay different.

Raspberry for the winner.

… ??? … i mean, i’m speechless…you hate root beer? everyone is entitled to their own opinion. i’m just in shock because i was just talking to my girlfriend about how i could drink that all day long. it is soooo good, and i could not believe they discontinued it. i bought a dozen containers of the stuff when they put it on sale. i actually got on here tonight to see if i could find anything on why they discontinued it, and then i saw your comment about hating it! lol anyway. i’ve never tried original, but good thread!

Original tastes like sugar to me, I love it.

Root beer takes the cake though, it is by far the best. It was of course dropped from production last year.

I like the original. I had the rasberry and used the whole thing and the sweetness kept making me want to throw up post workout. Not sure if it was the sweetness, the workout, or both. Anyways, the original tastes a bit like angel food cake but it’s way easier for me to drink
