We offer many different perspectives here at the City of Ate, and on occasion we even dabble in being good Samaritans. This is one of those times.

If you order Gatorade by color, you must stop. Immediately.

"Hey, I'm at the store need anything?"

"Yeah, can you pick me up a Gatorade?"

"What kind?"

"I dunno. Lemon-lime or whatever. Something green or yellow."

See, that's too vague now. Because then you may end up with green Lime Cucumber Gatorade. And it's horrible! Because it actually tastes and smells like cucumber. Now, I'm a friend of the cucumber when it's in a salad or simply sprinkled with a bit of salt. But, it has no place in proper hydration. At all. Ever.

Please, Gatorade, make it stop.

If you don't trust me, here's a review from Bevreview, from Raybo15:

"In all honesty, I love gatoraide but this made me puke , I ran off the field from playing ball, grabbed the bottle took a big swig and puked, I had never tasted anything so bad in my entire life. I hope they find another flavor to replace this as i passed it to 3 other teamates and they all had the same reaction ! Not good ...."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
