OWater Sport (Strawberry Pomegranate)

Since we are looking at beverages this week - so far with some success and some duds - I decided to turn my attention to sports drinks. These are most often enhanced with electrolytes and vitamins. As I was looking through a local grocery store, I saw OWater Sport Strawberry Pomegranate flavor, and decided to try it next.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 35
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 25 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates: 9 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugar: 9 grams
Protein: 0 grams

Since I wouldn't be "riding (cycling) 50-60 miles of the beautiful Berkshires" as the bottle describes, I decided to do the next best thing ans use this as fuel after my 10 mile run. And it really hit the spot. The taste is slightly sweet and very refreshing. There really is no pomegranate or strawberry flavor though - just slightly sweet with a little tartness.

Each 8 ounce serving of this "natural electrolyte drink" provides 35 calories from 9 grams of sugars. There is also 25 mg sodium (1% of the daily value), 90 mg of potassiumm (3% of the DV), 60 mg calcium (4% of the DV), 102 mg magnesium (6% of the DV) and 10% of the DV for zinc.

The ingredients are purified/ distilled water, pure cane sugar, natural strawberry and pmegranate flavors, electrolytes (magnesium chloride, calcium lactate, sodium citrate, dipotassium phosphate, potassium chloride), citric acid, vitamin E acetate, vitamin A palmitate, folic acid, zinc aspartate and rosemary extract.

I purchased a 20 ounce bottle for $1.49 - but I saw other similar sports drinks for $0.99. Still, I would buy this over G2 Grape Electrolyte Beverage for example, as that has artificial dyes and is sweetened with aspartame, and at just 15 calories less per serving.
