It all started with Gatorade and hos now expanded into a million brands and flavors of drinks which contain minerals, herbs and vitamins supposed to enchance physical performance in athletic pursuits. I still prefer a good cup of really hot tea.

The primary ingredient of most sports drinks is high fructose corn syrup. To this is added water, some desultory artificial flavors, and electrolytic minerals. As far as I can determine, sports drinks taste like sweetened sweat. Bleh.
