    I hear it's really awesome and was thinking of getting some. Does anybody here take it? What are your opinions on it?

    It is the greatest fruit known to man. Actually it's a very nutritious berry with an awesome taste. It's usually combined with guarana for flavor and to energize you.

    Acai is a super antioxidant. I agree it tastes great and its good for you. However, if you are already eating lots of fruits and vegetables (like a person should be), it will not have a "tremendous" impact on you.

    I have never had acai berries fresh

    I have had Acai Juice before and it was good.

    Acai it one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world so its definetly good for you.

    I agree with you. Juice It Up is so much better. Plus they serve it in the traditional bowl with bananas and granola. But they don't make it as thick as they should. I watch them break open two Sambazon packets for each serving.

    It's easier and cheaper to just buy the packets and make it yourself. My wife and I enjoy a big Acai bowl everyday for breakfast and occasionally as a light snack. There are lots of places you can buy the packets from cheaply. I know Henry's Marketplaces in Orange County were selling 52 packs for $50 dollars.
