I’ve never been a fan of Gatorade or Powerade. I don’t really like drinking my calories and I’m not a huge fan of the taste. As a mini reward after my workouts, I tend to drink Propel’s bottled beverages, for less calories (I believe there are 25 in an entire bottle vs. more than 100 in other sports drinks) and better taste (in my opinion).
Because I buy a lot of the bottled Propel, Giant Eagle decided to award me with a coupon for a free box (10 count) of Propel Powder Packets. They are like the Crystal Light on-the-go packets (another love of mine) but “vitamin enhanced” as the package claims. I decided to buy the kiwi-strawberry flavor, because it’s my favorite of the bottled flavors.
My advice – these are great if you don’t like carrying around a water bottle with bright red or orange liquid as these are virtually clear and look like regular water. It suggests pouring into a 16 oz water bottle but I poured it into my 32 oz. nalgene for a great, slightly flavored beverage. It’s a keeper! I’ll definitely be buying these. The only downside is that they are slightly more pricey than the other options I use to flavor my water (crystal light, store brand options, veryfine, etc.). Try them out in all flavors!
