Default Gatorade Or Powerade?
Which of these sports drinks are your favorite? If there is another brand you prefer, what is it? Also, what is your favorite flavor?

I like both. My favorite Powerade flavor is either orange or lime in white label. My favorite Gatorade flavors are BlackBerry rush and cool blue.

None of the above. If forced to drink one or the other because no water is available, then I would go with Gatorade. Powerade is just plain nasty tasting stuff.

I prefer Gatorade, but I often buy Powerade because they are sponsor E.K.U football. I usually like orange, grape,.or lime.

Gatorade tastes better but Powerade isn't bad. Powerade is cheaper to buy than Gatorade. Orange and Glacier Freeze are my favorite's.

I sell Coke products so I have to go with Powerade. But Body Armor beats them all. It’s taking over.

I looked up Body Armor and it doesn't have any artificial flavors or sweeteners. It doesn't sound that good. Have you tried it? If so, what did you think and how does the price compare to Gatorade and Powerade?

Haha. We do. Bought majority share in 2018 to distribute it. And unfortunately they donít let us take those new new products out of the facility. But we will get some sent to the plant when they first come out into the market and then Iíll get whole cases. Y

Our middle school football coach was big in the Pepsi plant here in corbin. So we were always raised that coke was the devil. I remember once for an away game we stopped at Arbyís, which I think he also was associated with some how, but they served coke at that location, so he literally brought trays and trays of Pepsi. Would NOT serve it to us.

Maybe that fueled the rivalry between corbin and middlesboro back in the day haha. Coke vs Pepsi.

I knew a Pepsi man that would carry a case of Pepsi in his car when he traveled so if he ever went into a place to eat that served coke. Heíd always been prepared.

So far im through half the flavors and im not really impressed. They all seem to taste bitter to me, some more than others.

Tropical fruit, strawberry banana and fruit punch were not bad.

I liked the tropical fruit. I donít think I could handle the banana. Never liked the flavor much in anything.

Yes with the bitterness, it could be the coconut water that is in them.

Thatís what it is. The coconut water makes them all have a familiar taste to them.
