FANS are upset to learn their favorite Gatorade product line has been discontinued.
Over the years, the sports drink company, owned by giant PepsiCo, has launched different lines of drinks to appeal to different types of customers.
These include healthier products that do not contain artificial colors, which studies have shown are a cause of hyperactivity.
That’s one of the reasons PepsiCo created Gatorade Organic.
However, fans of the series received some bad news afterwards questions where the product had been on X.
The sports drink maker responded, “Gatorade Organic has been discontinued, but we will let our team know that’s what you’re looking for!”
Previously, the Gatorade Organic series featured several flavors including strawberry, passion fruit and mixed berry.
Ingredients included citric acid, potassium chloride, sodium citrate and sea salt.
Although there were no artificial flavors, a 16.9-fluid-ounce bottle contained a total of 29 grams of sugar.
Walmart previously sold them in three packs for $18.69, which is 9.2 cents an ounce.
And fans of Gatorade Organic are sad to see it go.
“Fantastic taste. I love having this option for my family. I am extremely disappointed that this has not been restocked,” reads a five-star review from Walmart.
Another fan said: “Best of Garorate!! Excellent.”
And a third wrote: “I love the organic Gatorade. No colors (it’s clear) or added flavors etc. Tastes light, with a nice hint of fruit flavors. I don’t normally like flavored drinks, but when I’m out and about I need Gatorade for long periods of time in the sun and this one is perfect.
Overall, Walmart customers rated Gatorade Organic products 4.2 out of five stars.
A DIFFERENT FIT
But if you’re not a fan of artificial colors, Gatorade may have another affordable alternative for you.
That’s Gatorade Fit, which the company launched last year.
Instead of artificial pistils, Gatorade uses watermelon juice concentrate to create the appearance.
Plus, unlike Gatorade Organic, it contains no added sugar.
It is sweetened with stevia, a zero-calorie sweetener extracted from the plant of the same name.
Gatorade Fit is available in the following flavors: Citrus Berry, Tropical Mango, Watermelon Strawberry and Blackberry Raspberry.
They’re all sold in 16.9-ounce bottles for $1.38 each.
MORE WHERE THIS COMES FROM
However, this isn’t the only item Gatorade recently discontinued.
Another product that has been canceled is the G2 “Blueberry Pomegranate” flavor.
The label described it as a “low calorie thirst quencher” option that all G2 varieties want to bring to the table.
Its ingredients consisted of artificial flavors and colors as well as sugar and sucralose.
Additionally, Gatorade has stopped producing another favorite called Gatorade Flow Kiwi Strawberry.
The drink had a greenish appearance with its artificial colors Yellow 5 and Blue 1.
The product details at Walmart described it as having a “smooth finish and bold flavor” with “proven hydration” and electrolytes.
To learn more about discontinued products, Pop Tarts has dropped an iconic flavor.
And Farilife confirms it has discontinued an entire product line.
