Wanted to love these for their uber-convenience

Wanted to love these for their uber-convenience while backpacking and for the reasons every other reviewer seems to love them, but I just didn't. Something about the taste didn't sit right with me, and unfortunately it was the only thing I brought along, so I drank water for the whole backpacking trip, and my buddies didn't want them either. I'll give it four stars, as is seems to do what it's supposed to do, I just didn't care for the taste.

Big Papa, which flavor did you try? I am curious because there are some flavors I love (citrus fruit, strawberry lemonade) and some flavors I would rather not drink if I had another option. There are 11 flavors now, 5 new flavors came out in April, and out of the new flavors, some are super sweet (fruit punch, grape) and others are more mild in flavor (Lemon Tea, Strawberry Lemonade). This stuff is uber-convenient so I would suggest a new flavor before you give up completely! It is great stuff for travel and trail.
