Taste was definitely "off"
I was surprised that I did not like this product, since I had a good experience with the vanilla and chocolate collagen flavors. I did not like the smell when I first opened the canister, but I tried it first straight up, 2 scoops with 12 oz hot water. Nasty aftertaste! Could not get it down, so I diluted it with milk and it was somewhat better. Better still in coffee with cream, or with cocoa, but dilute (1/2 scoop per cup) Still experimenting with ways to use it. I think it has too much allspice.
