    Same here. I can't tell a major difference between the two when I tried powerade zero, but I'm not really a big fan of powerade in general, so it was still meh.

    My personal opinion is that all diet drinks except the cola flavoured ones ( Pepsi max etc) taste too chemically.

    YMMV.

    Whenever I have Gatorade, the carbs are part of the reason I have it (usually before, during, or after strenuous exercise), so the idea of a zero calorie version doesn't really appeal to me.

    I had some of the berry flavored yesterday and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I've been looking to add a little more variety in my drinks rather than strictly water or tea and this was a good addition.

    Yeah I love Powerade zero, the Grinch punch variety. I will sometimes drink the caloric version on long hikes.

    Just looking for something with some good flavor. Love regular gatorade but had seen the zero kind so was just wondering.

    Vitamin Water Zero is pretty good. I like the lemonade flavor...although I usually squeeze some actual lemon slices in there to make it taste a little more "natural".

    I’ve only had them when they were freebies after a race and thought they were vile. That is the case with most artificially sweetened drinks that I’ve tried though, I just don’t like the taste.

    I just realized that this autocorrected from fruit punch to Grinch punch. Lol. Surprised no one called me out.

    I was gonna seriously ask what that was because I only know of the fruit punch :D

    Its good. I like it from time to time. Try it and see. You can get in the 32Oz varieties which are like $1 or less than that. That way you can try the flavors without buying an 8 pack.

    Gatorade zero cherry glacier flavor (white one) tastes pretty decent (better than powerade zero). I find myself commonly recommending this for off-label OTC (cheap) colon preps using PEG & bisacodyl for people who don't want to take in tons of carbohydrates & to avoid (red, orange) dyes

    I bought the berry flavor and the lemon lime one. Hopefully it’s good.

    I recommend Propel drinks. They have been my favorite as far as getting a variety.

    The only time I normally drink Powerade or Gatorade is when I'm sick & getting dehydrated or when I'm outside pushing carts at work.

    I usually drink the Powerade Zero Mixed Berry or the Fruit Punch.

    I personally only like the white cherry and orange Powerade Zero. Something about the mixed berry and fruit punch just doesn't taste good to me (I like the full calorie versions of those the best, however). It's really just about you trying and figuring out what you personally like!
