    WTF, would you buy something that look like this to drink?:

    Apparently the brand is really popular here in the US, hell Coca-Cola actually bought it last year!

    I decided to give the orange one a shot, it tastes as bad as it looks, if not worse.

    I tried a brand called Vitamin Water in Japan. It was delicious! Not too sweet, citrus flavour. Really, really good stuff for a hangover. Pocari Sweat is also up there. Much better than Gatorade IMO.

    Not this is aimed as a casual drink, like a juice, only that the actual bottle makes it look like a medicine and the taste is close too.

    vitamin water IS really popular in the US
    we sell it at our school and basically any store that sells food or drinks sell this
    its pretty good
    cuz unlike gatorade,
    its healthy enough that you dont have to exercise to sweat out all that sodium(? not sure if its sodium. but its just like, if you drink gatorade you have to exercise or you'll have too much salt intake)

    All that I have read and seen would indicate most supplements only create expensive urine. The one exception was so called vitamin lollies, those things were tasty.

    This being said having spent quite some time in the US over the years I could probably drink this at some points: "sports drinks" and fruit juice for some reason do not hold a candle to squash (think tang but in liquid form and usually less sugary).

    Why is regular water and fruit juice so hated? Call me old-fashioned, but energy drinks taste like piss.

    Old fashioned? Not too many people drink energy drinks for the taste.

    Oh, and for those people who say that's what gatorade is for, gatorade only has electrolytes, which is a fancy way of saying salt. Gatorade barely has any vitamins.

    i prefer those natural smoothies drinks with fruit juices, they provide more vitamins as well as other stuff that the vitamin water won't provide, i'm sure that vitamin water is full of sweeteners and artficial flavoring anyway.

    Going to go off topic but Dragonfruit as in:
    [​IMG]

    Shortly after blood oranges they are my favourite fruit but I have not seen them around for quite some time. Now I know it comes in liquid form I am going to have to go looking.
