Anyone using FRS?

http://www.frs.com They have an offer to try it for free, but I'm curious if anyone is using it or has firsthand experience w/ it?

I love it. I like the low-cal versions though.

If you do try it go for powder. Same amount of stuff, but less empty calories from sugar.

I got the samples they were offering. I tried the low cal wild berry flavor. I thought is tasted horrible. I couldn't spit it out fast enough.

I guess everyone is different. That's my favorite.

The local GNC has (full sugar) orange and berry, orange is OK, but was way sweet and I thought the berry was terrible as well, one drink and I dumped the rest. I ordered a sample of the orange concentrate and will be mixing it very thin!
