Just heed the advice given in this thread: drink it cold, use straw(s), have a candy nearby. It doesn't taste bad at all and worked fine for me.

It was not the best taste but it was like drinking alcohol for the first time. Anyway I had an asthma attack after drinking it. The attack may have been caused by the suprep or a canned chicken broth I had around the same time.
