Whatever happened to the tea-flavored one?

Pros:Many flavors, sold everywhere

Cons:no longer sell the flavors I like

I loved this stuff! My junior year of high school I suffered from heat stroke right around time for finals to begin. My doctor told me to drink gatorade or water for a few weeks to help my system recover. I practically lived on the grape and tea flavors of this stuff. Now, a few years later, it's nowhere to be found!
But, I've tried most of the other flavors and tend to prefer gatorade over the other sports drinks out today. The others tend to have a saltier taste to them and offer only a few flavors.
It's worth it when you're hot, exercising, or really active in sports. When I played basketball in high school, I tried several of the different sports drinks available and found that gatorade seemed to help me feel more refreshed and less thirsty. But, you don't have to limit yourself to drinking it only when you are active. It tastes good enough just to grab it out of the cooler at the store and drink it when you're just riding along.
I do recommend that you keep it really cold though, as it begins to come to room temperature it starts taking on that salty taste.
