  • EW sorry i just noticed my grammar was ridiculous.

    I meant "What DOES it taste like" not "What it taste like" lol

  • i thought is was absolutely disgusting. i got to choose from coke, lemon lime, or orange flavor and i chose he lemon lime. i though well i like sprite so why not? i ended up puking in the garbage can. lol but i have kind of a week stomach.

  • I never had a choice- it was like a thicker, much sweeter, flat orange soda and I thought it was pretty disgusting. I'm sure it could be worse, though!

  • Yeah, it's pretty nasty, not something you'd choose to do on a regular basis. When I was pregnant with #1 I had no choice and got the awful flat Sprite kind. With #2 I got the thick, orange crush kind, and that was much more tolerable. Just chug it down and let them get what they need, you'll survive. If they give you a choice, choose the one you like 2nd best...if you love Coke and pick the Coke kind, it'll never be the same, LOL!

  • It was like they took orange soda and poured tons of sugar in it to make it syrupy (is that a word?). I couldn't drink orange soda for a loooonngg time after that, it made me cringe!

  • It's pretty yucky! The two best tidbits of advice I can give you--  1.  Make sure it's really cold (seems to make it better for some reason)  2.  Drink it as fast as you can!

  • Definitely make sure it's cold. Mine for both my kids was the orange kind. It wasn't bad, but it made me a little nauseated because you have to drink it on an empty stomach.

  • I have heard a couple people say they even enjoyed it. It just really depends. If you get disgusted by thick texture than I would chug it.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed mine! Even the techs at the lab where like "eeewww how can you drink that" but I thought it tasted like orange soda. Don't get yourself worked up over it...because if you can't keep it down, they can't do the test and bring you back.
