PrismPopper @MelodyHoff received four flavors of the Prime sports drink to test out, including Lemon Lime, Tropical Punch, Grape, and Ice Pop.
She acknowledges the fact that these hydration drinks are much more healthy than alternatives such as Gatorade but overall wasn’t super impressed. She said that each flavor tastes quite artificial. Her least favorite was the Grape, which she says was too sweet and tasted like artificial grape flavor.
Though there are no artificial colors, there are artificial sweeteners, which makes Prime’s “no added sugar” claim true but misleading. If you like sweet drinks, you will definitely like trying the Prime drinks!
Melody’s favorite flavor was the Lemon Lime which was the least artificial-tasting and very refreshingly citrusy. The Ice Pop Prime drink was also enjoyable, but a little too sugary for a recovery drink, and the Tropical Punch one tasted exactly like Gatorade.
Even though the BCAAs and electrolytes that fill the bottles are crucial to muscle recovery, Melody didn’t notice Prime Drink performing any better than a fruit smoothie post-workout.
