231962231962B002QTWTFWA18ZPP69YWE9O9TheBlacks0051314748800Yummy!My little ones love these gummies. They are easy to chew, natural and have great flavor. We use these as a mini dessert after dinner most nights. The boys always look forward to them.
231963231963B002QTWTFWAO1BX0HIK7IG3jane0051309132800delicious!!!there's always something different about organic snacks. You can tell there is a difference in just the way they taste as well as how you feel after eating organic. These snacks have a nice texture to the gummy-they're not rubbery and chewy like most gummy snacks. And they don't leave a nasty after taste like a lot of foods that contain chemicals and other who knows what ingredients. I've also found that Wal-Mart is selling these snacks as well other fine organic foods, FYI.

231966231966B002QTWTFWA3J5EW4FA5SA6LL. Dannenberg1251304294400Neuro Toxin FREE!Want to keep nasty neuro toxic food colors out of your little guy's (or gal's)brain. Then fight the pressure to buy dora or diego snack and go for annie's bunny fruit snacks. My son loves the strawberry flavor (they all are good). The best thing is I don't have to worry about his ears gettin all red and cheeks turning bright red in reaction to the food coloring. Lots of people think that sugar makes kids act wild and uncontrollable - and while this may be true - take out the artificial colors and you have an entirely different child.

I have tried in vain to cancel this item since February of 2011. Yet Amazon continues to charge and ship a product I don't want.

The product doesn't taste good. Amazon is horrible to work with.
231969231969B002J9AZSCA2SINQWJ5X3CTDB. M. MCCOY "castleb"1111286928000unbelievable price ripoff at AmazonAt other sites (e.g. kmart) the cost of a Hunt's 4-count (chocolate or vanilla) is $1. The cost for six of these 4-counts, then, would be $6. Amazon lists the cost of 6 packs of 4-count at $30! Amazing. They must be made of gold at that price. True, Amazon is the only one that offers butterscotch flavor, which I am looking for. Why does butterscotch cost FIVE times as much. Amazon's price is rip off. Buyer, beware

231971231971B002RSVOLMAHNHLGKIZ2N3BD. R. Jeanclerc "Reader, Listener & Obsessive...131621269475200Know What You're Drinking and Use with CAUTIONCelsius drinks claim to be "negative-caloric", which is to say that you actually burn calories by drinking it. Hmmm. . . Sound too good to be true? Well, of course it is. It's low-calorie because it's made with Sucralose (Splenda to the average consumer) and it promotes weight loss because its a combination stimulant (taurine) and diuretic - so basically, it works on your body like any over-the-counter diet pill. That said, the Raspberry Acai flavor does taste pretty good, but it will be up to the individual to decide whether or not any potential benefit justifies the downside.

Unlike many other reviewers, I actually liked the taste - I thought that it was a smooth blend of green tea and berry flavor. However, there is just enough of that artificial tang at the end to tip you off that it's sweetened with Splenda. But the absence of any fizz or overly harsh flavors made it easy to drink - which is good because it comes in full-size cans and leaves you feeling pretty full (i.e. just shy of bloated) afterward.

So is it any energy drink or a diet aid? It's a little of both. Most of the crucial ingredients are lumped together into a single line item (i.e. their secret, proprietary mix), but taurine is listed and the caffeine content is obvious. I found that while Celsius could beat back an afternoon energy swoon, it didn't really make me any more alert or focused - just instantly awake, albeit in semi-zombie form. This effect came on quickly and did last for a couple of hours at least.

Now for the bad news - the "crash" effect that a lot of these drinks try to pin on their competitors was overwhelming with Celsius. As a little bit of background, I'm a grown adult in good health and am very caffeine-tolerant. However, during my testing of this product, I made the mistake of drinking two cans about three hours apart and ended up unable avoid my first all-nighter since college. I was completely awake and pretty functional throughout, although I wouldn't have operated any heavy machinery at the time. But by the morning, I was suffering headaches, muscle twitches and even a flutter in my chest. I'm completely sure that this was all temporary side effects of the outrageous amount of stimulants and not permanently harmful, but it was still enough to make me wary from that point on.

So, the bottom line is this - if you're looking to occasionally avoid getting sleepy mid-afternoon at the office, or if you need to stay up late once in a while, Celsius may be an option for you to try. As a prolonged weight-loss regimen, I wouldn't take on the potential health risks in order to grab at some too-good-to-be-true advertising come-on. There's still only one way to lost weight and keep it off, and it ain't fun and it ain't quick, but it works: eat better, eat less and exercise more!
231972231972B002RSVOLMA3JPFWKS83R49VBryan Carey "Bryan Carey"4431271462400A Beverage That Burns Calories? Is it Too Good to be True?Celsius Raspberry Acai Green Tea beverage is a decent- flavored beverage loaded with nutrition, with minimal calories, low sodium, and none of the bad qualities that make so many other beverages so unappealing. Oh, and one other thing: The manufacturer claims that consuming this beverage will help you burn extra calories. This product is decent in flavor, with the light taste of green tea backed with a small amount of raspberry and some medicinal properties. It is non- cabonated, smooth, and as easy to consume as a glass of water.

The key difference between this and your average green tea beverage is the calorie- burning claim. The manufacturer claims that this beverage helps you burn about one- hundred calories per can and when you consider that there are only about ten calories in each serving, it would therefore mean that consuming this beverage will actually result in negative calories. This almost sounds too good to be true, but a quick examination of the ingredients makes it easier to understand why this is possible. This product contains added stimulants in the form of caffeine and taurine. These stimulants will give your metabolism a boost, and this extra metabolism will likely lead to added caloric loss. The manufacturer is cautious when it makes this claim, pointing out that results are best when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. I can see how this drink could contribute to some extra caloric expenditure, due to the added boost of energy, but like the manufacturer claims, it takes more than ingesting stimulants to lose weight. You still need to control your eating habits and exercise for maximum effect.

The added stimulants could discourage some people from trying this beverage, but another potential turn- off is the price. Purchasing a couple of cases of this product would be almost as expensive as buying an inexpensive piece of exercise equipment. Unless I was seriously into losing weight and wanted any little bit of help I could get, I am not so sure this product would be worth the money.

Still, when all things are considered, Celsius Raspberry Acai Green Tea is a good beverage that is worth trying. The nutrition is much better than that found in most beverages and the taste, while it does have an artificial sweetener finish, is pleasant nonetheless. I'm a little cautious about consuming anything that contains multiple stimulants and increases my heart rate, but this is still a good product; better than the vast majority of beverages on the market and certainly worth trying if you're looking for a liquid fitness companion.
231973231973B002RSVOLMA14638TGYH7GD9Rebecca Haden3331271116800Relatively healthy caffeine delivery systemIf someone tells you they drink this because they like the taste, they may not be telling the truth. I shared these with quite a few people, and the taste was never one of the good things people said about it. That doesn't mean that there aren't any good things about it, though.

It contains some vitamins and minerals. A test at a university found that volunteers saw some improvements in body composition. It claims to burn 100 calories per can, and who can say it doesn't?

It assures us that it works best (in its claims to increase muscle and lessen fat) with diet and exercise, and I'm sure that's true. None of the guinea pigs in my house noticed any effects, positive or negative, though we drank it before exercise as instructed.

Here's what it does for sure: it gives you a kick of caffeine. If you prefer a sweet, cold drink to coffee or tea, then this is probably better for you than colas. If you start or end your day with a doughnut and coffee to get the caffeine/sweets combo, then this could be a more wholesome choice. And if you believe in it enough, it could encourage you to work out harder or longer, because faith can do wonders, and there are benefits to increasing exercise.
231974231974B002RSVOLMAQ49VETGBDYPNRobin Mickler2251296691200Great TasteIts a great tasting energy boost. I've tried a few of the energy drinks out there and never liked the taste or the jittery feeling I got. I highly recommend the Raspberry Acai drink!
231975231975B002RSVOLMA11R8Z92FVB84GRoxy "Bloop"2241277942400It helps but you should know the facts.This product cannot and will not make you lose any noticable amount of weight. At best it can assist in burning up 100 calories but in order to lose even a single pound you must burn off 3500 calories. So in order for this product to help you lose one pound you must not eat or drink anything else for 35 days or you would have to take in the exact same amount of calories everyday with one of these drinks.

It is ment to ASSIST you in losing weight while doing a healthy diet and exercise program, NOT make you lose weight.

I personally love the product, I found it helped me get through a good 1-2 hours of exercise easier and it makes my work days go by smoother.
231976231976B002RSVOLMA4UFU4WKYEUGORhonda Roberts1131285200000Good tasting but nothing specialHydration is a very big deal to me now as is staying awake. I had no experience with these energy drinks - this was my first one. I did not have an issue with the taste like some other reviewers have stated. There is that after glow of artificial sweetener. Altogether, that is outdone by the berry/green tea flavor. It was pleasant to drink with a glass full of ice. Refreshing. No carbonation so you can sip on it as long as you like.

As for the other effects from the caffeine and caffeine-like additives (like taurine), I never got it. I do drink coffee and soda on a daily basis. A huge cup of coffee has a definite effect whereas this just gave me a little tiny bump. I found myself reading and re-reading the contents, trying to figure out what was going on, or not going on.

If you are a person who avoids coffee or other stimulants, this may do it for you. I'm thinking that the additives (which all source out as healthy) would be what attracts you and the taste is what would keep you. The middle part about losing weight or giving yourself a late afternoon buzz I can not attest to. The price is reasonable for energy drinks in this category. These are easily $2 a piece at the corner grocery. Buying them in bulk with subscribe and safe gives you a good bit of savings.

Weaning yourself off coffee and taking up Celsius is a strategic bargain. I do believe that bump is there, although I did not experience it. The other stuff makes it a wiser choice than roasted beans run through hot water, although roasted beans sure are fine :)
231977231977B002RSVOLMA28CCN6VYHRUKSAndrew Gray "Beezer Review"1121279065600Not very goodI tested this product and inititally wasn't impressed at all. So, I had several friends taste it and see what they thought. Maybe it just wasn't for my taste buds.

At the end of the day about 90% of the people that tried it didn't much care for it, for a variety of reasons.

Some didn't like the taste and prefered regular green tea.
Some experienced a 'crash' effect after drinking it
Some had doubts about all the health claims surrounding it

I think those were the main three complaints with this drink. As I said before I was not impressed in the least. Maybe for someone out there this is the right product for him, but there seems to be so many other (better) options out there.

This one just wasn't for me.
231978231978B002RSVOLMA3OXHLG6DIBRW8C. F. Hill "CFH"1131275868800Effective Energy Drink, But The Cola Flavor Is Better!Celsius Calorie Burner Green Tea Raspberry is every bit (or more so) as energizing as any of the other energy drinks (Monster, AMP, etc), but it has a bitter aftertaste. We tried this after trying the very good Celsius Calorie Burner, Cola, 12-Ounce Cans (Pack of 24), but we were sadly disappointed by this flavor.

While I can't really confirm that this actually burns 100 Calories just by drinking a whole can, it certainly would not surprise me since this does pack a serious kick. I drink a can of Celsius about a half hour before my workouts and it does seem to give me more energy throughout the whole hour and half or so. On occasions where I don't have time to grab a cup of my morning coffee, one of these does the job of waking me up just fine.

A note of caution: I do have a high caffeine tolerance (cultivated through years of drinking "too much" coffee) so while this is fine for me, my teenage son tried one before his workout and got "jittery". Also, while not an issue about the drink, the can is made of very thin aluminum and is prone to ripping if you crush it, causing sharp edges that can (and did) cut fingers.

Overall, this is an effect energy drink but it isn't as good tasting as the Cola flavor (which I even put it on automatic reorder). The Orange flavor is also better tasting.

Highly Recommended!

231979231979B002RSVOLMA1ACM1CBGORBN1Sherry Berry1131273017600While good tasting, leaves my tummy feeling sicklyThis is a pretty good tasting tea in gernal. It is not too sweet and actually has a tea taste to it. I am not sure if it really helped me burn that much more calories in general but I do know that I can feel it working. I get hungry faster after drinking this. The only down side, which knocked it down a few stars for me, is that it leaves a sickly feeling in my stomach. It feels like my stomach is almost hollow and just very uncomfortable in general. Almost like a slow heartburn. Otherwise, this is a pretty good tasting tea.
231980231980B002RSVOLMA3H6NNGCINPLECA Customer1141271030400Good, but Needs Improvement...With the right proprietary blend for energy, Celsius is a good beverage needing improvement. The non-sugary taste and absence of carbonation, along with the lack of High Fructose Corn Syrup makes this a favorable choice!

However, the sweetener used is disappointing (Stevia would be a healthier choice); and the use of Calcium Carbonate ("chalk") is no good for the body either. But with improvement, this drink would be near perfect.

231981231981B002RSVOLMA2W9I628I6SE1UKort "Art, Music, Book & Movie Enthusiast"1141270771200Burn Baby Burn!Celsius is a reasonably tasty and healthy supplement drink. It claims to help the drinker burn up to 100 calories with each can by raising your metabolism for 3 hours in conjunction with excercise. I cannot vouch for that, but it seems plausible. Drinking a bottle certainly gives me a blast of energy. I become markedly more alert and energetic. Whereas sometimes I would drag at the beginning of jog, after drinking Celsius I'd be spry from the get-go. I would caution against drinking too much though. I had two cans in the space of 6 hours and I got very fluttery - almost dizzy. These cans pack some powerful stimulants, or maybe my tolerance for them is low. Anyhow, keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that Celsius is more effective if drunk 15 minutes before exercise. It might burn some extra calories if you're only sitting at a desk but I doubt you'd see any results. To lose it, you've got to move it! I consumed case of the stuff with and without exercising, and I can't say I've noticed much of a difference.

As a drink, I found Celsius to be decent. Not the best thing I've ever tasted but not bad. The tea flavor is there, but the raspberry acai flavor predominates. Even that isn't overdone though. I wouldn't say it is watery but it is a lighter beverage than say pure fruit juice. One thing I didn't care for was the fact that it contains sucralose (Splenda). While I have not noticed any ill effects from consuming sucralose, others have. I'd rather not have artificially proceed sweeteners in my drinks if possible. That said, it doesn't effect the taste in a negative manner, as you can see from the photos of my co-worker in the user submitted images above.

Celsius could be a good part of a diet/exercise program. It certainly is a stimulant. I felt it's effect more strongly than with 5 Hour Energy, which I also like. At only 10 calories, it isn't going to hurt in any event. It's a little expensive but it is more than just a tea or soft drink so it that's understandable. If you don't mind consuming Splenda and can tolerate the stimulant ingredients, I would give it my qualified recommendation.
231982231982B002RSVOLMA36K2N527TXXJNDr. Bojan Tunguz1151269648000Tasty and refreshing energy drinkA bit to my surprise, this turned out to be a very pleasant-tasting drink. In my experience sport drinks or energy drinks are either too overpowering in their taste, or have an unpleasant "medicine"-like aftertaste, especially if they are low in calories. This energy-burning drink has none of those characteristics. The taste of raspberry is very obvious, but not overpowering. The drink is not as heavy as a fruit juice though, and hence much more suitable as a light refreshment. The fact that it is not carbonated is also a plus, as it will not leave you feeling bloated. This is especially important if you are drinking it during or before a workout. I cannot ascertain how effective this drink is in terms of burning calories (they claim that one can burns up to 100 calories), but it sure did energize me and gave me an extra jolt. In that respect it is probably no better than any other caffeinated beverage. However, this drink is flavored with an artificial sweetener, which to me is not the best of an idea for a supplement that is designed to supposedly burn calories. Recent research has shown that artificial sweeteners actually have the opposite effect from the one that they are designed for - our bodies adjust to misinterpreting the sweetness to be associated with low calories, so we end up retaining more energy from "regularly" sweetened products.

The shape of these cans is also convenient for storage or transport. I find it easier to put one of these in my bag than a regularly sized soda can.

Overall, I enjoyed these drinks a lot, but I am a bit skeptical of their calorie-burning effects.
231983231983B002RSVOLMA1ER6IYOMM8VCT! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b "DR SHOCK"1151269648000SIMPLY AMAZING!I am the biggest skeptic when it comes to fads and power drinks etc, but with a free trial I decided to give this stuff a go. I have been working out for a little over a year after a long break from an exercise program. I have been seeing very good results, but after a year of working out, I haven't been able to add to my workout in a while. I also wasn't losing any weight after losing 90 pounds in the first 6 months. Whenever I would do a longer workout I found that my legs would be tried the next day and I couldn't do a very good workout that day.

This month I decided that I needed to step up my cardio from 35 minutes to 70 minutes. I had no problem doing this the first day,but I knew I would be tired for the the next day workout. My shipment of this drink came in and I tried a can in the morning after a light breakfast. My workout went surprisingly smooth with no fatigue what so ever. I have been drinking one in the morning for a week now and I love the results.

I am someone who can't drink much coffee as it effects my stomach. I found that this drink doesn't effect my stomach at all. The taste is pretty good, but it's not something to flip over. I can't say if it is making me burn more calories either, but if I can double my workout, I know it is helping me a great deal. I also find that I have a lot more energy throughout the day. I only drink one a day before my workout and that's all I intend on drinking. I don't want this to become a crutch, but if it can help me to exercise more than I think it is worth it. I do not intend on drinking this stuff forever, but until I get used to the extra workout I think this is the best energy drink I've ever used.

This drink is certainly not good for you, but sometimes something bad can be used to do some good. One can of this stuff has as much caffine as an entire six pack of Coke! I do not recomment you start drinking this stuff every day, but if it can get you motivatied to start a life goal then give it a try, just know your limitations with addiction and do not use it all the time.
231984231984B002RSVOLMA34UVV757IKPVBjustsomeguy3421269475200Tastes like cough syrup from 1979.Remember that stuff your mom used to give you to stop your cough when you were a kid? Well, this tastes VERY MUCH like that. Ugh. I am drinking this now trying to come up with adjectives to describe what I am tasting to you.... watery, non-carbonated, slightly-grape-ish, dry, and weird. That best describes what this stuff tastes like. I would never purchase this on my own.

As for the claim on the can "burn up to 100 calories and more" - how does one prove that? I certainly can't tell you if it will help me burn 100 calories. There's no way for me to prove or disprove that statement. By the same token - shouldn't we slap that on black coffee as well? Certainly coffee ups your metabolism as well, right?

The can is really trying to sell itself; "NO Sugar" "No Aspartame" "NO Artificial Colors or Flavors". Yah but that doesn't mean it TASTES any good. It's really like a light watered version of old corn syrup.

I would drink this over a period of a week or so to see if there is any difference in my weight, but wow, I can't - I can't get past that flavor...
231985231985B002RSVOLMA3II1ZLJENJ96NJulia A. Antoon "shamoonya"0051342828800Celsius is the best drink everI always have one Celsius every morning at breakfast. It is refreshing and delicious. It is the best way to have green tea.
231986231986B002RSVOLMAANPVIZHB8CG7pat10660051315353600This is the best!Great energy drink. I drink it just before playing tennis and it keeps me going for three sets! The Rasberry Acai flavor is very good. I tried the orange spritzy one and didn't like it at all, so I'll stick with this one.
231987231987B002RSVOLMA38KO3KKR7GF4VPolly0260041282521600Good for energyThis drink will definitely give you energy before your work out but to lose weight you still have to watch your diet and exercise. This flavor tastes okay, haven't tried the others yet
231988231988B002RSVOLMA3CLWZGMC7M9Z1Hippie2MARS "Hippie2MARS"0041271894400Great Energy Kick, but Weight Loss? Not So Much...I waited to review these until I had used the entire case so I could accurately report their effect. First of all I like the way they taste. They are very similar to all the diet green teas on the market and didn't have a chemical taste, like some energy drinks do. Compared to Red Bull, these are a taste treat! I got a great energy boost from these, but invariably I also crashed about 5 hours later. As for weight loss, I weighed the day I had my first drink and I weighed on the last day. I made absolutely zero changes to my diet or lifestyle and, not surprisingly, I didn't lose a pound. I weigh exactly the same as I did before. So, as far as weight loss goes, this is probably not a good choice. However if you are looking for a tasty, quick energy boost, these are great. Just be aware that the crash WILL come in a few hours!
231989231989B002RSVOLMA2L35P0VQE7LBNnowann0031271808000Probably won't notice 100 calories, okay as an energy boostThe main draw of this product is the claim it helps burn up to 100 calories per drink, but will anyone really notice 100 calories? I know I wouldn't. So don't let yourself get drawn in too quickly on purchasing this product based on that fact alone. I certainly noticed no difference in my body shape with "extra" calories burned during the time I drank these once a day.

My initial impression of the drink (raspberry acai) was it had a slightly herbal-medicinal aftertaste to it. The first can I had, I noticed a very slight energy boost after drinking, but all drinks afterwards, I noticed no difference - but then, I'm the kind that caffeine doesn't have much of a noticeable effect on anymore. Perhaps this will work as an energy drink for most people, but it was nothing besides a fizzy drink in a can that tasted slightly off for me.
231990231990B002RSVOLMA2V2URLB31HG59JT0041271289600Competent Energy DrinkI tried out Celsius Raspberry Acai for about a month, a can a day. Not sure if it helped me lose any weight, my pants are actually a bit tighter than a month ago but that might be from all the Easter candy.

Typically I have an energy drink a few times a week, usually Diet Red Bull. I found the Celsius to be a competent replacement for my energy drink fix. It has a decent amount of caffeine to inspire me to get out of bed and go to work. The taste is decent though not overly impressive, hints of fruit but slight sugar-free aftertaste (and when I put it in a wine glass and swirled it around I found it had good legs and a pleasant aroma). It did not have enough carbonation for my tastes...I like a bit of a carb bite along the lines of Red Bull. My wife actually likes the taste more than I do.

Overall, a good energy drink that does the job. Tastes decent, low calorie.
