I have been using a different brand for my morning pre-training energy powder so I was curious how this brand and product would compare.
The taste was good. It mixed well-I made sure to follow the directions to not shake it. Gave me the energy I needed and I did not feel jittery or weird during/after taking it. My only complaint is that this product has red dye in it and my other workout powder does not. :-( For that reason alone, I will probably not buy this product. If the dyes doesn't bother you, I would recommend this product for your pre-training needs!

The Original Pre-Workout Igniter. Re-engineered.
In 2004 BSN® changed the landscape of sports nutrition forever when we introduced the first complete pre-workout supplement, N.O.-XPLODE®. BSN® pros have been hard at work over the past year to deliver the next evolution of pre-workout supplements.
We talked to supplement users, heard the feedback, and crafted a formula designed to help deliver explosive energy, enhanced endurance and maximum performance through our new Master Performance Blend. In fact, over 75% of consumers who sampled the formula during the development process told us the product delivered the right level of energy, endurance and muscle pumps.1 We also took our work one step further and enhanced the taste, ensuring the new N.O.-XPLODE® delivers on the BSN® promise of great taste and superior mixability.
Featuring a more concentrated formula (over 17% reduction in serving size2) and advanced ingredient technology, N.O.-XPLODE® has been re-engineered to help push you and your workout past previous limits.
Push yourself and your workout as far as you can.
Then, push further.
