The Top Ten

Glacier Freeze
I like this the best because it is the most mild tasting and refreshing. I'm not the biggest fan of Gatorade to just drink (I prefer water), but in the summer when I get dehydrated, I need it and this flavor is probably the best (followed next by fruit punch, which just tastes heavier, relatively)
Is this the light blue Gatorades? Because if it is then it's the best and my favorite flavor. But, I think the light blue is like frost or something,
This sweet, refreshing water flavor is natural and helps your body recover well.
[Newest]The Absolute Finest... Period

2Cool Blue
When I was in Kindergarten, my mother and I went to Minnesota for a week or two to visit my cousins. On day two, I caught the stomach flu and threw up all day. After I drank some Cool Blue, I began to feel better. This flavor has been my favorite because of how when I was little, I thought Cool Blue was the cure to everything, even cancer.
YUMMY! I love this stuff. Gatorade is so good! This is much better than lemon lime! Thank you whoever made this flavor
Cool blue is amazing I love it. Its much better than glacier freeze.(side note to people I've seen posting that the light blue flavor is frost, NO laugh out loud frost is a series of flavors glacier freeze is the blue version of that series just like there is a purple version too of frost) I digress I Want the gallon size of cool blue do they make it and where can I get it or even a powder version
[Newest]It is just delicious

3Lemon Lime
The (ONLY) Flavor I Drink almost every day. I usually carry up to three medium sized bottles in my service van.
Lemon-Lime is good all the time


Any other flavor is just because you didn't have lemon-lime available. Not only does it taste the best, it also happens to be the most thirst quenching. That makes it the best flavor to have when you're actually playing sports.
[Newest]Any citrus-flavoured drink of this variety is good.

4Fruit Punch
I drink a lot of gatorade. Never drinking just one flavor. Also drink other sports drinks such as powerade and all sport but mostly gatoraid and mostly fruit punch. Fruit punch is always a good choice.
It is a simple fact that Red Gatorade, aka Fruit Punch, is by far superior to other flavors, such as yellow pee. There is no dispute on this matter; it is a fact that people, especially boys of the eighth grade, must come to accept.
I love this flavor! I drink it all the time especially after horseback riding. When I'm sick, I always drink this flavor and only this flavor. Also when you mix it with orange, half and half, it's amazing.
[Newest]I think that this drink tastes good when you are really thirsty or when you are in class.

The BEST! Hands down, bar none, undeniably, and no questions asked.
Yummy! Love it. It's so delicious. Perfect after a swim meet because it tastes great and helps replenish
Refreshing and quenches your thirst, for immediate energy and power up
[Newest]I'm all about that orange. Bout that orange. No tremble

6Fierce Grape
Pretty Much the only flavor I drink! It is really good tangy/sweet not to sweet and not to dull. Its one of my top favorites it never gets old
TOP TEN please
My ALL TIME Favorite

Don't know why it taste so much better then regular grape, but its simple orgasmic.
By far the best flavor Gatorade out there! Keep voting for Fierce Grape!
[Newest]Drink this EVERY MORNING on the way to school, simply amazing!

7Riptide Rush
It's got a more subtle sweetness to it's flavor. The taste isn't strong but it's got enough so that you can enjoy the flavor without getting sick of it. I think Riptide Rush is comparable to purple cool-ade. It tastes great!
This is the best flavor out there it is so refreshing. I am also drinking this flavor now as I type!
Best flavor out there! I hate that it's so hard to come by. This one is definitely my favorite!
[Newest]This is the best flavor that they make and if you freeze it until it is just slushy even better

8Fierce Strawberry
By looking at it's ranking, I'm sure not many have tried Fierce Strawberry. You rarely see this flavor in stores but I must admit, the one time I did get to drink it, it was probably the best Gatorade I've had by far.
Fierce Strawberry is the best, I blessed this holy drink. Even though it's true by saying it's rare, it's still the best drink there is. I enjoy the drink just by both it's taste of flavor & color. I think this drink should more common in certain stores like wal-mart or your corner gas station to get it instead of certain 7/11's. God Bless Fierce Strawberry.
Fierce strawberry should be number one. This is by far my favorite flavor from Gatorade. Among others but this is number one for me

9Ice Punch
This flavor is really awesome. Yeah... It's only at my school, too. But I think it is really cool. It looks like water, but with and extra ZING to it. I drink this EVERY day, literally. And I drink it at lunch, breakfast, and I buy one and bring it home for dinner! This gatorade should be #1.
just discovered this flavor but can only find it in 12 oz bottles, would like to find larger size - great flavor not over powering 1 1111111
Love the flavor but disappointed that I usually can't find it and when I do find it, it's only in the 12oz size. Please make it in the larger sizes. I first tasted it when I donated blood, they gave it to me with a snack during the recovery.
[Newest]The best- only problem is every time I want ice punch I have to ruin the environment because it is only in those little bottles!

Becasue I have always liked lemonade and this tastes like old fashioned lemonade with the added benefit of the electrolytes.
Lemonade is the best it should be # 4
Tried it while on vacation in Mexico... Wish we could buy it in Cincinnati.
It's the best, but hard to find

The Contenders

11Glacier Cherry
Last year after PE I was super thirsty and the drinking fountains were down so I drove to a local gas station and saw this flavor for the first time. I literally gulped the whole thing in 30 seconds so I had to get another. To this day my #1
I could drink Glacier Cherry all day every day. I love the white color too!
This flavor is WAY underrated. Tastes like a cherry popsicle aka delicious! There are only 3 flavors of Gatorade that I actually like and this is the best one!
[Newest]The only flavor by Gatorade that I really like. Sometimes hard to find but always worth it.

Just delicious, my favorite after a long game or hike in the mountains!
I want to know y I can't find any were here in saginaw no berry fruit punch gatorade any more. That is a great drink. Need to start making more. I clould use to find it every were I went but now you can't find it what going on?
A good refreshing drink during a hard day of practice
[Newest]Simply the best flavor I have ever had.

13Lime Cucumber
The #1 Gatorade flavor for mexicans. Mix in a little bit of chile salt, and it tastes exactly like a real cucumber mexican style. Simply delicious. However if you don't like cucumbers, you should stay away from this.
Yes it is refreshing great flavor. But very hard to find. Mark (oregon).
This is so good with a cup of water, half cut of Lime Cucumber, and a shot of Kettle one, Titos or your favorite Vodka! My new Favorite drink in the world and great when on the lake in the sun. Very refreshing! I use to drink orange gatorade and vodka on the lake and now I drink this and have all my friends addicted to it as well. It was hard to find last year but much easier to find now. Every convenient store in the DFW area has it now. My second choice is Riptide rush which is also good with vodka and water. You just don't need as much water with any of the other gatorades like you do with the cucumber flavored one.
[Newest]Where have you gone

14Cool Blue Cherry
My new favorite flavor. I can't get enough. Bought it on a lunch break, and haven't bought another flavor since.
This is my favorite and I now can't find it in stores! What's up with that ;(((
It's just more refreshing, and tastes better than most flavors.

15Green Apple
This one is good for horses, horse electrolytes are way over priced. Just add water with powder and give in bucket. They need it before big ride and after to rehydrate.
I go to the gas station just to buy 4 of these at a time. It's my favorite drink ever
If people actually tried this flavor it would easily be mine 1...
[Newest]We need it in Baton Rouge!

16G2 Orange
I love it my favorite flavor of all
It's the best ever, I'm having real trouble finding it though!
I love its flavor also!
Why is it so hard to find?

17Citrus Cooler
Can't find very often but been around for long time
How is this so low on the list?! This was the original flavor! Best of the best!
So glad they brought Citrus Cooler back! Love this flavor. Also Michael Jordan's favorite flavor.
[Newest]Ah memories. The taste of band camp. My favorite of all flavors!

18Strawberry Watermelon
Its better frozen but is really delicious any kind of way
How is this not the best? It tastes like pixie stix!
It's better frozen definitely but it tastes good
[Newest]Its is very good

19G2 Mixed Berry
Wish you would make this available again; it was my favorite.
So good, sweet with a bit of an almost coconut taste. Hard to discribe but very tasty. By far trumps all other flavors I've had.

20A.M. Tropical Mango
The fact that NONE of you said this flavor makes me lose a little hope in the pallet of humanity
Great smooth fruit taste of mango. One of my top 5 favorite.

If you haven't tried FIERCE MELON then you haven't tried gatorade. It's the best flavor, extremely refreshing, light, sweet taste that just makes you crave another sip.
This is the best flavor and it's always so hard to find. My college roommate and I bonded over fierce melon.
Best flavor, if it's not your fave, it's because you've yet to try it.
[Newest]I'm on this site because I'm trying to find out how I can get some Melon Gatorade! Absolutely the best of all!

22Rain Berry
This is my #1 flavor. Seems to be getting more difficult to find this flavor. Even had a Grocery store stock person tell me they quit making this flavor. Not true thos says PepsiCo when I inquired.
It's refreshing, slightly sweet and has a tart little kick at the end! This flavor is by far the most satisfying because it is light, cool and delicious!
Best flavor since the green rain was discontinued. Now its hard to find Berry rain.

23G2: Blueberry Pomegranate
This is by far my favorite flavor and I can never find it. I have actually driven an hour to a store that I knew stocked it just to stock up on it for my house. I get really bad leg cramps and the only thing that makes them go away is Gatorade. Thank you thank you for making your product and the g2 is a lifesaver because I'm diabetic
I love this flavor and can't find it anywhere now! Don't you guys still make it? This is the best ever and I'm almost out. Please stock the shelves at Martin's again with Blueberry Pomegranate!
This is the best thing ever... I mean I don't know how Gatorade could ever produce a flavor better than this one.

24Strawberry Kiwi
By farrr the best. and I can't find it anymore all I can find are these stupid G2 drinks. Gatorade tried to hard to compete with life water and energy drinks they should just stayed like they used to be
Love this kind when I got sick with the flu only kind I drink. EVERYONE SHOULD GO OUT AND BUY THIS KIND YOU'LL LOVE IT
This is the best Gator flavor ever... But it is gone from the shelves in markets around me. What gives?
[Newest]Strawberry Kiwi should be number 1

25Tropical Cooler
Such a good flavor! I just had to get it because I never seen it before, now I better go get more! This is delicious!
This is my favorite Gatorade! Tastes just like a fruit cup but it's hard to find.
Really wish I could find it in the small bottles again... it wasn't distributed properly "enough" in my area
[Newest]It has such a good flavor inside. I think it is one of the best gatorade flavor they made so far!

26Cascade Crash
Best in the Frost Series and overall flavor! Hands down! Refreshing and has that subtle fruit taste. Hard to find but Costco has the three Frost flavors in a variety pack.
This flavor can be hard to find, but it is well worth it. You owe it to yourself to try it if you say you like Gatorade. It has always been my fave and always will be.
The best in the Frost series period. So hard to find, only place to find it is in costco in the 3 different flavor pack of the Frost. Very good drink I inhale them on a hot, humid day. Wish they sold them in 32oz at 711! The company should also reintroduce the "Rain Cherry" flavor as well, I know it was popular.

27Blue Rush
This one is probably the rarest Gatorade bottle out there. I haven't seen it in years but even when I did it was extremely rare to find. It is known as the Dark-ish blue flavor, and has a strong but very sweet taste to it. By far way more tastier than cool Blue and I don't know why they are so hard to find!

28Lemon Ice
There isn't a flavor sold in the US that I haven't tried and this one is my overwhelming favorite. The only reason this is so low on the list is the fact that it hasn't been in stores since the mid 90's. Most people have never even seen this let alone tried it.
Glacier cherry is the best one now but Lemon ice was heavenly. Not sure why Gatorade decided to take it off the shelf. To have it again would make me a very happy man!
I'd punch my mama for one more delicious sip...
[Newest]The best gatorade flavor of all time! I still pray for the day they bring it back

I swear tangerine and citrus cooler are the same. Either way... my new favorite! Old was riptide rush. I like tangerine because it's not too sweet and a little tangy. Perfect. Sill think they're the same though...
I drink this one 3 times a week while I am working out. It is sweeter than the orange and it is my favorite. I can't believe it isn't on this list!

30Raspberry Lemonade
Its so good for refreshing
Best flavor in the world

31X-Factor Lemon Lime + Strawberry
This is the best flavor so far
Best flavor out there, but super hard to find.
Best flavor ever. I wish it was easier to find!
[Newest]The BEST flavor of all time! Hands down.

32X-Factor Fruit Punch + Berry
This is my absolute favorite, that of my family as well. I cannot find this flavor in stores in my area, Portland, Oregon. Please let me know where I can purchase.
This is a good flavor.
This is in my top 5 Gatoraid list, but it is hard to find, I only see them at CVS drugstores in 32oz and occasionally at a grocery store. Excellent strong flavor!

33G2 Grape
Grape Gatorade is so much better than fierce grape but so much harder to find these days
Best of all Gatorade taste best frozen
I dink at least 3 bottles everyday! I think you can call me addicted
[Newest]I drink at least 3 bottles a day!

Mango > Lemon Lime > Lime > FruitPunch
The best of the best. I love it really teasty during
A taste of the islands, not too sweet, refreshingly satisfing

35Raspberry Melon
People you got to try this, it is so good.
Great stuff but hard to find
Reaally good.
Taste is so blended it does not taste like gatorade at all.

36Rain Lime
This is the most refreshing flavor. I do not think that they make it anymore, but when they did it was always sold out in the gas stations and supermarkets around my house.
G2 Rain Lime is crisp, clear, and smooth. Best tasting of all so far. Don't get it mixed up with the sour Lemon-Lime.
They still make it... I special order it all the time!

37Sandia Citrus
The best. Delicious and refreshing.
Love it wish I could get it at home
So good with vodka!

38All-Stars Tropical Punch
Do you remember this one the Shiz Net.

39Protein Recovery Shake Chocolate

40G2 Tropical Blend
My favorite is G2 Tropical Blend. It is emerald green (not red). After determining this is my favorite, no other flavor refreshes as well. Now I can't find it ANYWHERE! Please don't tell me the Gatorade folks have stopped producing this?
This is without a doubt my favorite flavor of Gatorade! The pretty emerald color and the refreshing fruity flavor is the best! Its sweet without being too sweet so the flavor comes through. I can't get enough of this stuff, I always stock up on it whenever I see it!
We LOVE Tropical Blend but can no longer find it! So now we rarely buy any Gatorade... we have ONE bottle left in the fridge and at some point my husband and I will split it and enjoy... We sure hope they bring that flavor back!

41Strawberry Lemonade
Can't find it any more!

42 Passion Fruit
Awesome. Saw it in Brazil. Can't get Gatorade to market it here.
Had plenty of it last year - can't find it this year! Gave my last six bottles to my granddaughter.

43Cherry Rush
Remember this as a kid, had it all of my soccer games. They should bring this back
Absolute best flavor of all time. Bring it back!
Best 90s drink ever!

44Fierce Blue Cherry
New In My Area But It's The Best Among Whats Available!

45Rain Cherry
This is the BEST Gatorade of all time. I've tried searching for it everywhere even online, no luck. Last time I had it was maybe 07'? But I do remember when it came out in late 05' I believe. I might have to get on the horn with PepsiCo. and see what the deal is.. (that's how much I miss this flavor) and I'm sure I have many backers on that. I pray that one of the ceos or analyst people see this and reintroduce this beloved flavor! -Matt (Florida)

46Blue Blast
I don't know if it's the same as Cool Blue.

47A.M. Orange Strawberry
Reminds me of a taste from my childhood infant quite pin down this is my all time favorite

48Blue Bolt
So Good! Makes me so refreshed when I drink this flavor! It should be way higher than this.


Amazing! This flavor tastes so original and that's what I like about blue bolt
This is what I drink when I'm sick and it also tastes delicious!

49G2: Watermelon Strawberry
This is definitely not the best but it depends on what you like. Try it for yourself but it taste like cucumber water too me.

50Lemon Lime with Strawberry X-factor
Live in Indianapolis and can't find this one either

I have not seen this flavor in years, but it was far and away my favorite Gatorade flavor. Especially when partially frozen to a slush consistency.
I miss this flavor... Was the 1st Gatorade I ever drank way back when, and I literally cried when I couldn't find it anymore. This needs to make a come back, not that strawberry watermelon crap. If I ever found it at a store, I would buy in bulk, its that good.
Light and refreshing. The best of them all. Wish they had this flavor everywhere they sell Gatorade.
[Newest]Its called Watermelon Ice and it's the best

52X-Factor Orange + Tropical Fruit
It tastes exactly like Melon, my favorite flavor
