Rated 4 out of 5 by Anthony V Not bad
Its really still not bad, i never had the old formula, but i wish i could... However, being the 16 year old kid i am doing insanity i really like the boost it gives me to my workouts the following day! The taste can be somewhat overcome by mixing half of it with orange juice and drinking half at a time, (i also plug my nose) i would still say its very good:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sunfitgirl loved this stuff, but afraid to order new one
I MISS having my Recovery drink- I love the test (of the old one) and getting on here to order more I see that it isn't the same.
I am afraid to order the new one if it doesn't have the same taste- that is one of the main reason to drink it (and to keep reordering it, it has an amazing taste (the old one) I have not tried the new one) that was perfect after a hard workout and helped with recovery! please bring back the original formula- so I can order again!! please?!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RideTheRockies This product worked for my entire team
I used the recovery drink after my p90x workouts and found it very effective. So much so that when my team rode the Ride the Rockies bike tour in Co., 545 miles in the Rockies, I told everyone to try the recovery drink after each days ride. Everyone loved it and felt it worked really well to recover from the day and be prepared for the next days ride.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aking3 Just add a little vanilla to get the old flavor
Like so many people here, I loved the old formula, and the new tastes very different. But here is what I've found....new stuff + 1tsp vanilla = exactly what the old one tasted like. With all the benefits of the after workout drink, this is a quick and easy fix to alter the taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NowIHaveAMachineGunHoHoHo taste- weak orange juice; energy boost
the drink does provide some quick energy; i felt energized once again drinking it after Insanity. the taste reminded of orange-flavored vitamin C i took as a kid or a very weak orange juice. I enjoy the energy it gives me after Insanity, but the taste doesn't help. i would not say this is a bad product, but i will not be buying it again because of the taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by browntown420 Not sure what all the 1 star hate is about.
I've just received my third supply of the R&R formula. It tastes amazing, goes down easy. It honestly feels like I'm cheating with an orange creamsicle smoothie. Like I said, I'm not sure why people think "it tastes HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I can understand if some people don't like it, to each their own, but "horrible" is quite the exaggeration.
My only complaints are a) the price is a bit steep considering I have to order from Canada, and b) the drink tends to have a small odour once you've stirred it in water for a while. These aren't dealbreakers, though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Snareman BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL TASTE!!!
I REALLY looked forward to drinking the recovery drink after my first round of p90x. After taking a break for a year and buying some more I thought maybe the tub had sat in a warehouse for a long time and spoiled. Turns out there is a new flavor which is much more acidic and bitter tasting than the original refreshing formula that as Tony puts it "is worth doing the workout just so you can drink the recovery drink". Sadly the new one is far from tasting that good. The functionality of the drink might still be as good, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the original formula.
As mentioned in another review, if you never tasted the original you wouldn't know the difference, but its immediately noticeable if you know the original .
