Hell, I'll crush some potassium, cell salts, etc. tablets and mix it with filtered tap water before using Gatorade or Powerade.
You'd think they'd want what's best for their players.

Maybe they just use the containers and put their own mixtures in it.

A lot of sugar, water and a bit of salt. Gatorade is fine in the middle of a heavy exercise.

Sure, any other situation it's terrible for you, but for the intended application it's fine.

Does GNC still carry G Series Pro? The Gatorade used on sidelines for pro sports. The electrolyte complex is enhanced in that.

I haven't been to a GNC in a while.

Do they sell coconut water or a brand? Or do you just make it yourself?

Purple, yellow & light blue Gatorade is great.

Yellow and purple powerade is not

Gatorade wins it for me.

Anyone remember All-Sport? I was dying of thirst at one point this past summer and that was the only sports drink offered at the general store.

It tasted like 1997.

Powerade is slightly cheaper, so I'll go with that.

Powerade is cheaper, you can get a bunch for 50 cent each when on sale. Plus, Powerade is part of the coke rewards so every cap has a code which adds to some cooler gift certificates/rewards. Gatorade is usually over a buck each with no rewards. I like the sweeter taste of Gatorade but...going with Powerade for bang for buck.

coconut water is also a natural laxative so it will make you go to the toilet. Probably get you more dehydrated in the long term.

I can't believe some of you are using price as a decision-making factor. How much of these kinds of drinks do you consume? Are you purchasing mass quantities? The discount you're getting is negligible.

Powerade has high fructose corn syrup in it, so that's why I don't drink it as often as Gatorade.
