  • Nope. Not at all! You drink the drink they give you. It wasn't all that great tasting to me...but it wasn't terrible either. Then you wait for awhile. They draw your blood. And your done.

  • It is not bad, I have taken the test going on 5 or 6 times. The way that I would explain it is a super carbonated orange soda with not quite as much sugar as would normally be in a soda. Its no big deal you will be fine.

  • I know this isn't normal, but I actually crave that stuff. I think it tastes awesome. Just make sure you get orange instead of lemon lime. The lemon lime flavor is kind of gross (I think).

  • I think it sucks. I think it is nasty, and it made me feel sick to my stomach. And being stuck in a little room for 3 hours was pretty lame too.

  • It's not bad at all. I just put mine in the fridge as soon as I got it. It tastes like flat Sunkist to me.
