The first few glasses went down okay, but it kept getting progressively more difficult. When I was about halfway through, I began to get very cold, then my fingers started tingling.

just taking sips made me dry heave.

Tastes like plastic and chemically soap flavor even with the apple flavoring.

The first liter I vomited just after getting it down. I was only able to get down 20 oz of the second liter. After continually trying to drink the rest, I have vomited again. This stuff is horrible. Once I am finished with the test, I will never use this stuff again.
