1,000 mg Energy C with Electrolytes
Works, a bit hard to get down
I bought this for a mid-day pick me up. I liked that it was sugar-free and orange flavor... however I think they aded a bit too much citric acid since its a bit sour for me. But it works so thats what counts! I find its more enjoyable with less water, contrary to what I would have thought.

Great product and much less sugary taste than the EmergenC. However, why the heck did you guys put the orange coloring in there? That stuff sticks to the walls of my glass and is hard to clean off. There is absolutely zero need for a colorant to make this look like orange juice. It is NOT orange juice, so it does not need to look orange. Please keep the products PURE. No additives please.

This is good tasting and convenient. No sugar or other junk.

Swansons Ultra 1,000 mg Energy C with Electrolytes
I am just finishing up my first box on Swansons Ultra 1,000 mg Energy C with Electrolytes and will be ordering more in a few days. The price and quality of this product is very good and I prefer it to other similiar products I've purchased in stores or other sites. I use it along with adding MSM also purchased from SwansonsVitamins.com and consider both worthy to keep purchasing from their site.

Great product for the price
I was very happy to discover Ultra Energy C sold at Swanson and the price can't be beat. I used to spend a fortune on similar products at local health food outlets.
For anyone who wants an after workout drink this one is loaded with nutrients. I drink it daily and the individual serving packets are very handy to use and carry.
My only complaint is the taste. It has a slight mineral taste likely due to the zinc, magnesium and potassium, but I don't drink it for the taste and if it's a big deal the powder can be mixed in some juice of your liking.

Has the same vitamin and electrolyte nutrients as that stuff off the shelf, but this one doesn't have any sugar or corn syrup in it. That'll do it for me. And it's just as inexpensive.

Other brand replacement
I had been looking for something to replace Emergen-C because the new manufacturer started adding additional sugar. It was already sweet enough. I started looking for a replacement when I found out about it.
I decided to try the Swanson Energy C with Electrolytes. Instead of sugar they use Stevia and that impressed me. As it turned out it works very well and it taste good. Now I'm looking forward to some other flavors coming out...hint, hint!
I recommended it to my Chiropractor. He uses muscle testing and the Energy C with Electrolytes is testing positive on several people including me.
I would recommend it to anyone.

Great flavor, reminds me of how Tang tastes but with a little fizzy kick to it, and I know I'm getting some good nutrients as well.
The packets dissolve quickly, no clumping at all.
This will be a staple each month for me, and the price is reasonable. Very satisfied customer.

Supplement WithOUT Aspartame
I love the convenience of the vitamin C 'fizzy' supplements and all the additional vitamins, minerals in them.
And I am always on the lookout for those that use natural Stevia as the sweetener in lieu of nasty artificial sweeteners.
Unfortunately this product still has SUCROSE in it and I will be switching to the NOW brand that has only stevia as its source of sweet. For this reason only is why I did not give it the full 5 leaves rating.
The rest of the ingredients in the product are fantastic, which is why I purchased it. Especially the amount of Alpha LIpoic Acid and vitamin A.

Electrolytes and portable too!
These portable Electrolytes are so great. Spring is here and with it the usual activities; also the usual pollens and heat. I just open my bottle of water and pour it right in and I'm ready to go. These Electrolytes prevent me from getting dehydrated and give me a real pick up..

Tried these while ON SALE
These little packets of drink mix are convenient to carry on the go but I use them one at a time in my iced tea batches for the health benefit of adding nutrients to what I'm drinking. I'm making every effort to move away from sugar free sodas. This helps.

Better for you
I like these much better than the other brands because Swanson's is the only one that I've found without fructose which is a no-no.

Works for me!
Convenient... handy... tastes good!

Good pick me up
Not quite a cup of coffee, but helps me through my afternoon slump!

ok but not great
I used this and found it effective but the aftertaste is terrible so I won't be buying it again. I have to mix something in with it to drink it.

Very good comparison to Emergen-c...
I love this product! I use to always use Emergen-c but they use Fructose for a sweetener. This product dissolves the best when mixed with a little hot water first to dissolve and then mix with cold water! Tastes great.

Swanson Ultra Energy C
I wanted to try this Swanson product and compare it to Emergen C since I have taken that for many years. I LOVE the Swanson Ultra Energy C and would highly recommend it to others. The taste, quality and value are superb.

Not "Emergen-C" !
Unfortunately, the failure of this formulation to easily dissolve makes it extremely inconvenient. I'll stick to my fave, "Emergen-C" (Lemon-Lime), after which this product is essentially patterned. It dissolves much better and tastes much better. About the only thing going for it is the skinny packet which is easier to pour the ingredients into a water bottle.

Little too sweet
I liked this product and appreciate no fructose being used but it was a bit sweet or tart for my taste. I will continue to use but will dilute a lot more next time.
February 16, 2013
I love it!
I just really like the flavor and effectiveness of this energy C drink. I am so glad that there is no added sugars or preservatives. I like this better than another product that I use to use.
