Ordered the summer fruit flavour which is extremely palatable and seems to be easy on the stomach. Seems to maintain nice stable energy levels, early days of use but quite impressed.

I was rather skeptical about the use of quick release quick release carbs such as maltodextrin and dextrose etc, but after using this 3 weeks now I would recommend it to anyone. Personally I take about 30mg in my protein shaker full of water and sip during my workout (2 compounds, 2 isolated and HIIT). Before I used Tricarbs, by the time I got to HIIT I had relatively short sprint periods due to fatigue. My first session using Tricarbs changed this, I felt more energized throughout my session, especially during HIIT. Over the course of my session I top the solution up with water then when I am complete I have a shake consisting of 30mg of Tricarbs (Summer fruits), 5mg of creapure and 1 scoop of unflavored whey (I actually like unflavored whey for making smoothies etc, but Tricarbs adds a bit of flavor which is a refreshing change) . Altogether I feel this product fueling grueling sessions and is great at recharging for the following day. I will be investing in two flavors next time to change up my post workout shake every so often and reap the rewards during sessions.Goes Well With:Water, Impact Whey Protein, Creapure, Thermopure
Go stuff, bit sweet so I just use half the amount with the water! Will be buying more for sure! Helps get that little bit more out of the gym.Goes Well With:Water
I have 700ml an hour and a half before football, and another 700 during and after (as instructed) and it makes 60 mins of 5 a side feel like 20 mins. I could go on and on! I have the Unflavoured option and it tastes great! Mixes easily, stays mixed for a few hours too. Goes Well With:Cold Water, A Bottle
Tri carb is a great product. For cycling I drink half the recommended amount an hour before going out and the other half while I’m out. I can definitely tell the difference, my energy levels are high and consistent, no flagging towards the end of a long ride. I mix it with diluted orange juice and you can barely taste the tri carb plus no upset stomach.
Really impressed with this product. Gave me a big energy boost during workouts. The unflavoured tastes fine and mixes well. Highly recommended.
Mixes well and taste depends on cordial/juice that is added as only unflavoured available, have had summer fruits previously and this was nice. Helps when playing 11aside football at half time and at the end of the match.Goes Well With:Cordial
Unfortunately I am allergic to a lot of pre-workouts on the market, even some of the MP ones. However, I believe this is because of the flavourings used, this is why TRI CARB is great! It provides long lasting, effective energy release which have helped me push through PBs in endurance training, strength training as well as climbing and kayaking trips. I only wish this stuff came in a bigger bag.Goes Well With:Water and lemon juice
Tastes incredible and you can really feel it working! Easy to mix and dissolves pretty much instantly.Goes Well With:Water
Love Tri Carb tropical. Really nice flavour and gets me through a good cycling workout. Great for endurance sessions.
Tastes so I'll take with to work and drink throughout the day! All friends have tried it and now use it.Goes Well With:No need to cover up taste like some others I've had will be back again soon.
Used this product after feeling my energy levels drop towards the end of a football match. Much cheaper and more effective than lucozade or other sports drinks. Keeps me hydrated and allows me to push and play harder over the course of 90 minutes. Would recommend to any footballers looking for an alternative to more expensive sports drinks on the market.Goes Well With:Water
I lift around 8am, recently I've had a large scoop of Tri-Carb pre-mixed with 700ml of water waiting by my bed, to take as soon as I wake up at 6.30am. I've noticed a huge different in my energy levels before and during my workout. Highly recommended, especially for those early morning workouts!Goes Well With:Creatine
It's a good tasting in berry blast and it mixes easily, no need to use with a shaker. Does it's job and gets the carbs in quickly.
I have been using this product for a month, an the increase in energy pre workout has been amazing! I'v been mixing it with my whey protein and instant oats in the mornings with a bit of cinnamon, tastes like a comfort smoothie! I would recommend this product if you are needing to boost your energy levels during workouts. Goes Well With:Whey Protein and instant oats
Not sure about this product yet. It mixes well, tastes OK and performance appears to be enhanced since using it. However, I'm not sure if it's a coincidence since starting to use it but there may be a laxative effect I did not know or read about.
I have been using TriCarb for the last 3 weeks or so, and from the very first time I used it at the gym, I noticed that I was less tired, and improved my time doing interval on the treadmill. Every time I work out now, I use this, and it always makes me feel more ready for my workout, because I know I'm always going to have a good one now. I was following the directions and having a 700ml an hour or so before, half during and half after. I haven't ever used any other energy and endurance supplements so I can't really comment, but I know I will be buying Tri Carb again, especially for the days where I have 2 gym classes. When you mix it properly and with the amount that they suggest, it isn't as sweet, possibly try and mix with ice water to take the edge of if you don't like sweet things.Tastes very similar to Refresher bar sweets!Goes Well With:Hard work.
I bought the Tropical Flavour Tri Carb. If you follow the instructions you end up making quite a strong tasting drink, which although has all the carbs you need for me it was just too strong. Use a little less powder and you are set. I start drinking one about 2 hours before I go swimming/running/cycling giving it time to go down. If I plan to do a particularly long session then I take some with me in a pre-made drink or a home made sachet to add to water. I think it's great and I have definitely noticed the difference. My swimming sessions in particular, I was instantly able to go harder for longer and is now paying off. My times are dropping.Goes Well With:Water
I take this before a morning run if I am not having breakfast. I find that it gives me the energy to do a long run when without it I would start to flag approaching 10k. Taste is good if not spectacular. Mix with water, down it, get changed and go out whereas before I'd have to eat breakfast then wait half an hour for it to go down before heading out.Goes Well With:Caffeine
Serves good for intended purpose, I use it during boxing training, keeps me energized to perform at max level.
Tri Carb is great. Sometimes I have really early starts at work, and a scoop of this into my water bottle just picks me and makes work a lot easier.Goes Well With:Water and even in juice.
I'm a diabetic and before I began using Tri Carb, I would always find my blood sugars becoming unstable and deteriorating rapidly before becoming a hypoglycaemic attack. I needed something that would stabilise my blood sugars half way through my training and Tri Carb does exactly what I need. It gives me a quick-acting boost which halts any further dips in blood sugar levels, and then the slower acting carbs act as a bridge, giving me enough time to drive home, have a shower and then get solid food. Tri Carb has given me the confidence that my health will not be such a major concern or danger to myself when training, or to others when I'm driving. I chose the tropical flavour, and I find it quite sweet but refreshing.
Tri Carb gives you a lot of energy but I've only used it once just cause the taste made me feel ill and the immediate aftertaste was disgusting! I wouldn't go for the orange flavour!
I haven't been to the gym for months until this week and it definitely kept me hydrated. I will be buying this Tri Carb again.
At first I'm always a bit speculative about the promises made by sports drinks manufactures, but hey, so far so good it does what it says. Gives me that little kick to get me going and definitely helps me stay and recover. I think different drinks have different effects on the whole spectrum of people, you just have to find one that works for you.
Tri Carb is a great product, the unflavoured version mixes well and as expected, doesn't distort the taste. I'll be getting this again as it just gives me the peace of mind that I'm fuelling my body correctly.
Purchased Tri Carb as I was taking part in a cross city bicycle ride, after seeing that this was a recommended product in the 'Your Sport' section of the site. Tastes great and the rest of my team loved it too, it certainly seemed to help us on our way. We made up sachets to add to our water as we refilled along the route. Very effective! Goes Well With:Pure Energy Bars
I used this Tri Carb as part of a recent cycleathon over 60 miles and found it an excellent product (tropical flavour). It certainly made a difference during the last 10 miles. I usually carb up the night before but found this kept my energy levels up just as well and also taking into account it was 21 degrees out on the road so rather warm as well. The flavour was very impressive and easy to mix.
Tri Carb does exactly what it says on the packet! It has a superb flavour and it's quick and easy to use.Goes Well With:Mixes excellently with USN Pure Protein
I used Tri Carb for a continuous 24 hour trek across three peaks. It's a good mixture for muscle recovery and to keep my legs from aching too much afterwards.
Just started using Tri Carb and have to say that as well as giving you boosts in performance during exercise, it also simply makes me feel better in general. I mixed/added it to some Fructose and Dextrose too in order to make a powder and boy does it do the job! Tastes great, very sweet but overall I've been very impressed!Goes Well With:Anything!
It's definitely worth spending the extra money on Tri Carb as it is delicious! This is nice to have with ice while working out.
Since redundancy I had no choice and was lucky enough to be given a job back in the factory setting CNC machines, which means getting up earlier than working in an office. Tri-Carb gives me a massive lift and keeps me energised all day as it is a very physical job I now have to do & the flavour is great. I also use before run - great boostGoes Well With:Impact whey
Certainly does the trick for me, taste is extremely sweet (tropical flavour), but I suppose that's to be expected. Keeps glycogen levels high during my endurance cycling events, which is exactly what I wanted it forGoes Well With:Hard work
I got the unflavored version of Tri Carb, mixed about half a scoop with 400ml of water as soon as it came as I get impatient to try stuff, it tasted like sea water so I spat it out. Later on, before cardio workout I mixed 3/4 scoop with 2 scoops of oats, 300ml of whole milk and some molasses and blended, tasted like sea water and oats. Downed it anyway and proceeded to run on treadmill for nearly double my usual time, and feel great afterwards. The next day, I tried it with some juice cartons I saw in a vending machine at college, 1 carton pineapple + 2 cartons orange + 3/4 scoop tri-carb. It tasted like mildly salty orange juice, but by far more bearable than the previous taste experiments. same effect on my cardio workout, mild increase on weight workout performance. Next day added 1/2 scoop sugar to the juice mix, was better. Conclusion: brilliant effect, will make you feel invincible during cardio but take care to have some strong flavored juice like orange or pineapple on hand or some double strength juice concentrate to mix with (a small amount of) water otherwise what you drink will taste salty. Goes Well With:any drinkable liquid with a strong enough flavour to mask the saltiness. a good cardio workout,
Tri Carb is definitely my favourite MP product! It provides you with so much energy and makes you feel so hydrated and helps you to maintain performance throughout a 70 minute hockey match. I can definitely work harder for longer! And it's great tasting too!
Only used this product a few times so far after some seriously hard sessions or runs. I do American Football and this stuff certainly seems to help me keep going during practices and refuel after. Taste-wise, make sure you mix it right, JUST UNDER a large scoop otherwise it's overpoweringly horrific- but mixed right it will still take a bit of getting used to, I have a bottle of water with me in my bag as well just to keep things even.
This is the first time I've tried the unflavoured Tri-Carb and I have to admit I was a bit sceptical at the checkout - however, I had no reason to worry. The flavour is absolutely fine and to be honest, I've been enjoying it more than I have the flavoured versions. I will definitely be buying this again. This is a great product.
I've only tried this Tri Carb once so far. I mixed it in a 700ml bottle and took it on a 20 mile training run along with a couple of gel packs. I felt great for the whole run so definitely think it helped. I find it tastes extremely sweet so will only use it for very long runs or races.
I have been using Tri Carb for the past six months, before indoor rowing, spinning and Fit4Pump. I have just ordered another two packs as I wouldn't be without it. It gives me that extra boost to maintain my form over a fairly long session.
Tri Carb is great tasting. I think people are finding it too sweet because they haven't added enough water. It says 700ml to under 1 scoop, which is a lot! Using it as a pre-workout, for me personally it doesn't work I don't feel any difference. I'm using it as a weight gainer, it's a good product and I would buy it again.
I bought this Tri Carb for IM triathlon training and have used it on 4-5 occasions. It tastes foul - it's very artificial and very sweet and every time has given me an upset stomach within 4 hours of taking it - not good. My partner has had the same problems.
I have been useing tri carb for about 3 weeks now and what a great taste in summer fruits flavour and for the product it works a treat i use it when im out on my mountain bike.over the past few years i have used loads of diffrent energy drinks and powders and ttri carb is one of the best.and for the delivery was very fast by dpd and they email you what time your parcel will be there.great service all round.thanks scott
Good for maintaining energy during long workouts but it only helps if you are willing to work hard anyway - so it's not going to make you work out longer if you're lazy Important for recovery as well since you do need a bit of energy to recover
"It's interesting how, judging by these reviews, people seem to be buying this stuff without understanding what it is. It isn't a miracle super-pump muscle-tearing energy-boost-deluxe super-powder. It's just a combination of a few simple sugars to replenish muscle glycogen before and after workout. Gymbeciles."
Tri carbs is a great product and super value for money. The summer fruit flavour is very nice and not at all sticky when making like the peptopro berry blast is. I take it pre cardio training with Creatine Ethyl Ester and during training. It gives a super boost and gets you through any hard session. Top product!!
"I buy the summer fruit, taste is good. Mixes well Use this before and during my rowing, only on hard days when I take my HR upto 80%+ ave"
"I used this for a mountain bike race in the summer called the Mega Avalanche (google it) mixed with caffeine, absolute bloody rocket fuel! however be careful with your measurements with the caffeine."
Been using this for a few months now and I have to say it helps a lot. Pre-workout take with a drink hour before and during exercise and its brilliant. I bought the unflavoured one because i'm a tight a$$! LOL
"I have been using this to fuel long bike rides. It's great value and performs very well. Add my own flavouring and a teaspoon of ribose to a litre bottle, and even a scoop of impact whey on occasion to give some extra fuel. Very pleased with the results."
did a 100k off road bike marathon and this stuff got me through great product and a great price keeps your carb levels up and aids recovery nice one MP
Bought this for bike ride from London to Paris. Very good source of carbs but the taste was too sweet so got really fed up with it. Would buy again but unflavoured to add to a more refreshing flavour.
"Tri carbs is excellent and amazing value for money. I used the summer fruits flavour and found it to be very nice with a flavour that was tolerable even in the middle of a heavy training session. The people who are saying it didn't give them a pre-workout boost are probably right, i don't think it's intended too! What it does do is give you readily available carbs during longer gym works out, or more specifically cardio! Would they expect normal carb drinks to give them a boost? No, if thats what you're after just get some caffeine!\nThis works out at under £10 for over 11 litres of drink, a bargain. On hot days or when training indoor i use it mixed 30g to 700ml and it becomes even better value!\nAmazing product and highly reccommended for anyone involved in endurance sports!\n"
"I bought the summer fruits version, not nice. Will buy this product again but unflavoured.\n"
"I have been using tricarb mostly for mountain biking but also in the gym. The taste is fine, not too sweet for the amount of carbs, and quite neutral so you can mix in squash or juice to add flavour. It works well as a source of carbs for both short and long training sessions."
"I have been taking this for a month, and, although i only notice a slight increase in energy pre work out, i find that it is the perfect, affordable suppliment to take post work out to restore glycogen. \nKeep it up My Protein!"
"Had hi hopes for this product by wanting to use it as a pre-workout drink before i trained, but didnt notice the slightest difference to my energy levels during my workouts after using it for a fortnight total waste of money."
