G2 Grape Electrolyte Beverage Review

G2 Grape Electrolyte BeverageG2 is produced by Gatorade, who says, "G2 has the same amount of electrolytes as our original Gatorade formula, but with only 20 calories per serving.It is a low-calorie sports drink that helps athletes stay fueled for ultimate performance."

I was never really a fan of the original Gatorade, but I received a sample of G2 Grape Electrolyte Beverage, which, in my opinion is much better than the original.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 20
Total Fat: 0%
Sodium: 110 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 5 grams
Sugars: 5 grams
Protein: 0 grams

The flavor is slightly sweet - a little sweeter than the usual flavored water - with a hint of grape flavor. So what's in this? Water, sucrose syrup, citric acid, salt, sodium citrate, natural and artificial flavor, monopotassium phosphate, sucralose, acesulfame K, red 40, blue 1. I really don't do any activity often enough to have the need to fuel up during the exercise - I'm only up to running about 4 miles a day - so I don't know if this helps performance.

I have to admit that I was very surprised with how much I liked this, having not been a fan of Gatorade previously. Each 20 ounce bottle provides 50 calories and 5 grams of sugars.

I've seen G2 Grape Electrolyte Beverage for $0.99 - $1.69 (20 ounce) and would definitely keep this on hand for a quick post-workout shot of fast absorbing carbs on occasion. As much as I like drinking water, sometimes a girl just needs some flavah!
