I purchased this with some high expectations. The overall flavor is awesome. However, this doesn't seem to mix well and the kick isn't there for me, personally. At first, I tried one scoop just to test it, it didn't really give me much energy. The second time, I did a double scoop and it had a mild effect on me. Maybe this is due to the fact that I am used to using bucked-up, but I am not sure.
