I have used that type of prep before each of my colonscopy tests... NOT much fun at all... do the cherry flavoring... it seems the best... I also found that if you drink it through a straw it helps... also... I did a "pepsi chaser" last time and it seemed to make the taste and consistency much more bearable...
Sorry... no real positives for this stuff... it sucks no matter what...
My thoughts are with you...

Ant34 it is always only clear liquids the day before. Get yourself some chicken broth to drink, jello to eat (no orange or red). One little treat I found that helped was ICEE's or Slurpees (again no red or orange coloring, I liked the coke flavor). Hope that helps a little.
