I am a 31 year old male, my mom had the same problem with me when there was much less variety in formula. I drank from a bottle until I went to school…..the thing that worked for me was to mix the formula with lemonade. I would never drink it from a cup unless I used a straw. Something about the straw helped me get past the taste and smell. You grow into the taste as the years go by.
Good luck
