NFT: Gatorade Zero

Route 9 : 8/13/2019 5:15 am
Anyone try this stuff yet? I got myself a second job (so I can attend as many away games as possible this season) at the "ol barnyard grocery store" overnights and for some fucking reason we cannot keep this Gatorade Zero stuff on the shelves.

I read somewhere it was going to be limited time only and now its here to stay?
The only thing I know of it is that

It is very popular in low carb circles. Plus some people see it as a healthier substitute to Gatorade, whether it is true or not. See: Diet Coke
We buy this by the case at Sam's...  
BamaBlue : 8/13/2019 7:31 am : link
kids love it for sports drinks. No sugar, no calories, no carbs... shortly we'll probably find out it will kill you.

Bill L : 8/13/2019 8:44 am : link
I don't like the gatorade zero flavors very much. Also, gatorade is very cloudy whereas powerade is crystal clear. I'm not sure what it means, but instinctively figure that clear is purer.
I like it  
Beer Man : 8/13/2019 8:53 am : link
Been picking it up at Sam's. I don't drink the original because of the sugar in it. If it stays popular, I'm guessing they will keep it in their product line.
seems ok to me.

Maybe. But most evidence right now points to it being pretty safe, while too much sugar is almost universally seen as harmful. So if the choice is between Zero and regular, I'd go with Zero.

Of course, water is the best choice, but if you're drinking out of a plastic water bottle you're going to be judged in a way you won't with your plastic Gatorade bottle. Funny how that works.

G2 has had the same impact on me. I canít drink regular Gatorade anymore. Itís too sweet.....kinda slimy.
It uses sucralose which has a glycemic index of ~0  
Scyber : 8/13/2019 10:23 am : link
And it contains electrolytes, so its popular among the low-carb diets.

I've been mixing Tito's vodka and Pedialyte over ice.

it just makes me feel like whatever dehydration effect I'd have from the alcohol is immediately counteracted by the electrolytes in the pedialyte.

and it's refreshing.

Titos and pedialyte > Red bull and stoli

And I feel like I'd call it a Flaming Moe if I had to name that drink.

No. I mean I wouldn't select it as a drink if I wasn't trying to replenish electrolytes, but it doesn't taste awful. Just slightly syrupy and a little strong.

They have many flavors. For classic I like the grape, mixed fruit, and strawberry. I do not like bubble gum or unflavored.

In the advanced care and advanced care plus I like them all except kiwi berry.

Plus over ice and mixed with vodka it dulls the flavor a little and just makes a refreshing summer drink.

Not at all. I sometimes drink it if I've had a few beverages - usually does a good job of warding off the morning nastiness.

I dilute it with some water, though - fill a big glass ~30% of the way with pedialtye, fill the rest with water, add some ice and you're good. It just tastes like a light gatorade without being too syrupy and sugary.

Gatorade zero (nor pedialyte) contain aspartame. They both contain sucralose.

and in moderation neither has been proven unhealthy in any way.

BH28 : 8/13/2019 4:58 pm : link
Nobody needs that shit to stay hydrated. What you really need is sodium, but sugar is way more addicting so they pack in the sugar to get you addicted to it.

Gatorade finally realized that people are catching on to the sugar scam and offered a zero sugar option. It's why Pepsi started the Bubly sparkling water brand.

Hey, Dunk...

Haha. Jeez. Unusual mention. But ok...

You're still overly concerned on that Thanksgiving throwaway post from almost 2 years ago? Bungle and I used to joke around with one another for years on here. Funny thing is, after ripping on me for posting on Thanksgiving in 2017, I think he posted on Christmas a bit that year too. I cannot honestly remember, you would know better than me.

Buzz off. Actually, here is an idea...

Since you're this expert on BBI poster history, the road goes both ways and I got some of my own advice for you: why busy yourself in other ways by going head-to-head with the latest "Simo dupe"?

Or, you know, whatever other mindless shit that usually preys upon your mind.

Hey, I'm sorry that "what can brown do for you" doesn't include "killing it financially" anymore, but you'll have to do better than pointing out the fact that this board does, in fact, have a particular troll that continues to return under different handles.

I don't really see what my past mention of Simo dupes has to do with any sort of BBI lesson though. Is that supposed to be some kind of insult? Come to think of it, I do seem to see you coming to the would-be heroic rescue of every handle that ends up getting banned for being a dupe, though.

In the meantime, somebody please pass me a bottle of Gatorade Zero so I can get rehydrated from that sick burn!

I mean I'm no Warren Buffett by any means but I always work a side, overnight job in the summertime, so I can attend away games (look at my OP) in the fall and I don't have to use the money I do have saved. Weird concept, huh? I'll stop when I get to see all 32 teams on the road.

Come on man, you know how expensive airfare is. You're the one getting pissy over literally nothing and bringing up old shit on a thread about Gatorade, lol. This took a weird turn because of ...you. Are you upset because you weren't mentioned? You're really going to give someone shit for working two jobs?

Rescue for trolls part. Nah, I was likely getting at the fact you should be fair to newer posters and not quick to label them as a troll, doing so would discourage people to post more. If someone is an obvious dupe, fine. You were called out on wrongfully accusing someone a troll before and you did apologize.

Regarding the money and your highfalutin opinion of my jobs, I'm actually doing better "financially" than I was. Weird how that went up in the 2 years since that big moment in your life when you read my comment on a BBI thread, during a year in which the Giants had two wins.

I might go to more away games this year. Or do you have an issue about that? I'd be more than happy to discuss it, or we could do it some other time in the middle of a thread about Rutts Hutt. Whatever you shall choose, my girl.

Bought some of the Zero based on this thread. And I have to agree, very impressed with the drink. But man.....opening the bottle bordered on the ridiculous! Im not a weak guy; im 6'3" 250 and lift almost every day. But I literally had to cut the top off of this thing! Luckily I remembered the old hot water method for hard to open bottles for the second one. That was THE hardest top I have ever tried to get off of a bottle in my 56 years on this planet:).

Anyone else have a similar experience with Gatorade bottles?

I ended up running hot water over the lid for about 30 seconds and it came off like a NORMAL bottle cap would be expected to do.
