You are not like the other Powerade Zeroes. They are vaguely medicinal, but their underlying flavors are too well defined--strawberry or grape. You are mixed berry. You allow no questions as to what berries, besides blueberries are actually BLUE.
There are other regular power-ade flavors. Pink Lemonade comes close to you, as do those weird light green and cloudy white ones. But they are named after weird emotions.
You had a competitor in powdered blue Gatorade once, but Sam's Club stopped carrying it. Then Gatorade got Tiger Woods's endorsement. He is from Stanford. I hate Stanford. Plus Gatorade is too sweet tasting to feel like it gives you a charge.
And you are frequently on sale, five for a buck, at Jewel, easing the exorbitant 3% Cook County beverage tax.
Veritably, you are to sports drinks as Ny-Quil is to cold medicine.

I don't drink energy drinks very often. But when I do, I do like the blue ones because they taste so much better thn everything else.
Haha. Cook County's sales tax is like 10%. -_- Which is why when I'm done with school, I'll hopefully be moving back home to a much more superior county.
Are you from Chicago? =D

You should be from Philly. We don't have food taxes in Pennsylvania.
I was going to say that I drink Gatorade, except whoops, Gatorade doesn't exist anymore. Revised statement: I drink G.
I think Powerade should change its name to P.

And when they do, schoolkids the world over will chuckle when someone says "I'm going to go drink some P."
It's Wii syndrome all over again!

Wolfqueen--I'm officially "from" Indiana but I've lived in Chicago a lot. Lots of people do find other places to buy food etc because the taxes are so high. I don't have a lot I want to buy that falls in the new tax bracket, thankfully.
Suskie--Fortunately the food tax is only 2.25% so that is not so bad. And I think Chicago has one thing on Philadelphia according to the wags: "Chicago and Philadelphia are both corrupt, but Chicago's corruption WORKS BETTER!"

My football team used to have Red Bull as a sposer, so I'd get a crate of it every month or so. When the deal went out, I had to quit cold turkey. It was hard.
Powerade are involved in a lot of roots football, so I often nab freebies. I always make a beeline for the blue, too.
