The secret to getting this nasty stuff down is to down it in one shot, and then chase it with a swig of something tasty like juice. What I do is open my my mouth, dump in a scoop of pure BCAA, and then quickly take a drink of juice, and swallow everything in one go. Takes a second or two, and that's it. No agonizing drinks to down. Just booom!
Yes, me too. A spoon full in the mouth, then swig a few mouthfuls of fizzy drink to wash it down.
