Top Ten Best Gatorade Flavors


The Top Ten

1 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)

As mentioned by another, it's mild and is closer to water, so it's been my favorite for years because it's easy to drink. It's also the only one which I can make in very weak strengths to encourage me to drink more water, without all of the sugar--and it doesn't taste bad like other watered-down flavors or disgusting G2, even in weaker strengths than the G2 version. You'll have to work your way down to half, to quarter, then lower strengths to get used to it...then it just tastes really good, with barely any sugar at all, and I'll chug it.

I use the 32oz bottles, buy the larger canisters, and use between 1/5 and 1/20th (I haven't busted out my caliper yet) of a scoop (a full scoop is normal strength for 32oz). It deepends on whether I've worked out or am just ensuring that I drink enough water, daily. Watered-down Glacier Freeze tastes better, and is much "healthier", than any G2 which has more sugar AND disgusting artificial sweeteners.

This sweet, refreshing water flavor is natural and helps your body recover well.

It's so refreshing I can't stop drinking it help I'm drowning in it it's so cold a

2 Lemon 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 - hockeyguy2100

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.

Best flavor easy

3 Cool 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

It tastes like tooth paste for me, if you like cool blue don't get mad at me. We both have different tastes

4 Orange

The BEST! Hands down, bar none, undeniably, and no questions asked.

Refreshing and quenches your thirst, for immediate energy and power up

Always a classic! Absolutely the best choice when you need something light, like if you've been sick.

The most refreshing Gatorade to ever exist - tommydougherty

5 Fruit 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.

All the flavors.

6 Fierce 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.

Fierce Grape is my personal favorite, but I think overall, 6th place is probably pretty accurate

Grape is my favorite gatorade flavor. The taste great and refreshing

7 Riptide 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!

Best flavor out there! I hate that it's so hard to come by. This one is definitely my favorite!

This is the best flavor out there it is so refreshing. I am also drinking this flavor now as I type!

I'm drinking this one right now - Gynidz

8 Ice 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.

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.

This is the best of all the flavors! Extremely refreshing and sweet, but not that easy to find. I don't see how fruit punch, orange, and lemon-lime are in the top 5 unless their just old-school voters. Maybe in the 1980's or early 90's, but there's just way to many other flavors that have come out since then. Branch out and live a little.

My favorite flavor!
Why is it so hard to find?
I buy it out whenever I can find it, but eventually, they will quit restocking it!
Sales would boom from me alone if this were as readily available as the "common flavors"!

9 Lemonade

Becasue I have always liked lemonade and this tastes like old fashioned lemonade with the added benefit of the electrolytes.

Hands down the best flavor of Gatorade! Perfect flavor not too tart or sweet! Difficult to find so have to seek it out. Wish all stores would stock this flavor. Have to watch carefully so as to not pick up lemon lime because so close in color!

I would like to know where I can buy this flavor of Gatorade in Knoxville I drink nothing but lemonade Gatorade in Mexico and haven't noticed it in any stores in Tennessee. I have to say this as one of my top favorite flavors of Gatorade I like it better than lemon lime and equal to fruit punch I drink Powerade as well but gatorade is My preferred daily beverage

10 Fierce 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

The only one I like but very hard to find.

The Contenders

11 Glacier Cherry

I was requesting my mother to bring rain berry gatorade before she went to the store. Instead, she came home and brought me this flavor. She said they were out of rain berry and got me glacier cherry, which I've never tried. The next day, after I completed my daily exercise, I decided to drink it. I thought it was so delicious that I couldn't stay away from it! I absolutely love it! It has topped my previous favorite flavor rain berry. And since I love it so much, my mom brought me two more bottles the following day.

I could drink Glacier Cherry all day every day. I love the white color too!

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

By far the best Gatorade Frost flavor, and my second flavor after the Gatorade Fierce Grape. When I go to like a 7/11 with my dad before my basketball games, since Glacier Cherry is more common to find than the Fierce Grape, this Gatorade Frost flavor is one of the first flavors to my mind.

12 Lime 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).

The most refreshing flavor by far! But you either love it or hate it. People who don't like it think it's disgusting usually because they don't like the cucumber flavor. Freeze it and blend with a good agave tequila (clear, not the gold or aged styles) for a tasty margarita.

It is very good,Just very hard to find

13 Berry

I love this flavor although its not the most popular flavor its gotten me threw my childhood. whenever I'm sick it helps me feel better whenever I'm thirsty I go to my fridge in the garage and get a chilled bottle of delicious, tangy, thirst quenching berry gatorade.

Gatorade normally has three ingredients: sugar, water and some strange fruit flavor. Rain berry eliminates one of those variables, it is just sugar water. Although it could probably be better described as Nectar.

Just delicious, my favorite after a long game or hike in the mountains!

the best

14 Citrus Cooler

This flavor actually beat Orange the flavor that I had been drinking for years as my favorite. Until I had Citrus cooler! This flavor is lighter and more quenching. #1 Citrus cooler #2 Orange #3 Mandarin/Tangerine flavor

I love all the classics, but when you can find it I grab a Citrus Cooler. It has a taste that's so unique you will never forget it, it super refreshing, and just flat out amazing. No other beverage can compare.

I have not been able to find this flavor in years. How I miss it so much. I still get cravings for it. It is by far the best flavor Gatorade has ever made!

15 Raspberry Lemonade

It's so good for refreshing

Best flavor in the world

Tastes like cat booty

Love it and wish I could find it- usually get 4 to 6 --8pkg 20 0z bottles every couple weeks. so good where can I get it now?

V 2 Comments
16 Grape

So good! Why can't I ever find it? Only ever find "fierce grape" which clearly is not as good!

How is this at 20? My favorite

So much better than Fierce Grape!

One of the best flavors for sure.

17 Green 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.

If people actually tried this flavor it would easily be mine 1...

I never really liked any of the flavors until the other day. I had to get Gatorade to prep for a Colonoscopy. I stopped by the store saw the green apple and tried it. Wow! I love it. Now I will buy Gatorade, if I can find it. Hope I can find it in powder form, so I can mix it on the long bike rides.

Best flavor hands down!

V 35 Comments
18 Watermelon

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.

Light and refreshing. The best of them all. Wish they had this flavor everywhere they sell Gatorade.

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.

Gatorade Watermelon was the bomb in the 90's
Just plain Watermelon No flavors just Watermelon.

19 Cool Blue Cherry

My new favorite flavor. I can't get enough. Bought it on a lunch break, and haven't bought another flavor since.

It's a great mix of the original cool blue flavor which is my number 2, and an added mix of a cherry flavor to put it on top, it's just as good the the name itself

This is my favorite and I now can't find it in stores! What's up with that ;(((

Just tried it right now.. it's amazing!

20 G2 Grape

Great after a late night. Even before going to bed. Wake up and feel like you've just come out of a 10 year coma. Refreshed, healthy and ready to hang with friends. That's if you have friends. If not, at least G2 Grape is friendly. Well kind of. Its friendlier than the other flavours by at least 40%.

Grape Gatorade is so much better than fierce grape but so much harder to find these days

Best of all Gatorade taste best frozen

The best but all of a sudden I can't find it I the stores! Hope they don't discontinue it!

21 G2: 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!

I love this flavor! It is the best Gatorade ever! I normally do not drink Gatorade, but if this flavor is on the shelf I will buy it! Fabulous flavor! please continue to make this flavor

I love this flavor but suddenly I can't find it on the shelves, why is that?

V 16 Comments
22 Strawberry 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

This is the best Gator flavor ever... But it is gone from the shelves in markets around me. What gives?

This is the only one worth buying. Can't find it. Tried to find a replacement and tried many, but they are all horrible. Please, please bring back Rain Strawberry Kiwi

Come BBaackkk@!

23 G2 Orange

I love it my favorite flavor of all

It's the best ever, I'm having real trouble finding it though!

Normal orange is better

I love its flavor also!
Why is it so hard to find?

24 Melon

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.

It was hard to find for a while, but is now back. This is hands down the BEST flavor of Gatorade and definitely my personal favorite.

This is the best flavor and it's always so hard to find. My college roommate and I bonded over fierce melon.

Fierce Melon is the best, agreed. I also like rain lime and frost white cherry. That melon though

V 23 Comments
25 A.M. Tropical Mango

The fact that NONE of you said this flavor makes me lose a little hope in the pallet of humanity

The best by far, but extremely frustrating that I can never find it

Great smooth fruit taste of mango. One of my top 5 favorite.

THE BEST HANDS DOWN GATORADE TO EVER EXIST I drink it like every day I have it right next to me right now

V 6 Comments
26 Arctic Blitz

I don't think the name fits the color or flavor a tropical sensation came to mind

Tastes exactly like a starfruit to me, love it

Smells good tastes good, cool color, FULL PACKAGE period. BEST!

Tastes like what laundry smells like. I'm addicted to this one and its almost always sold out at any Wawa I go to.

V 15 Comments
27 Strawberry Lemonade

This is the BEST flavor of them in my opinion! Should be a lot higher up on the list.

It is the best! Too bad you can't find it anywhere.. Should be higher up on the list

This is the best. The lemon lime and glacier freeze are close behind though!

28 Strawberry Splash
29 G2 Mixed Berry

I love that it has lower sugar. The taste is light and easy in a sensitive throat. Thanks for this flavor!

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.

At least there's no artificial coloring or food dyes.
And it tastes very good like strawberry/raspberry

30 Rain Lime

Best flavor ever! Hands down. Unfortunately not available anymore, although it popped up at my local Big Lots store in southwest Florida. Bought every last one every time they get it in. Though seems like it's passing out of that store also. Please bring back this flavor!

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.

Rain lime is my favorite gatorade flavor, but unfortunately they discontinued it! I look desperately anytime I get gatorade in hopes they will bring it back!

The second best flavor right behind glacier freeze

31 Kiwi Strawberry
32 Strawberry Watermelon

It's better frozen but is really delicious any kind of way

Definitely top 3 favorites next to Strawberry Lemonade and Fierce Strawberry

How is this not the best? It tastes like pixie stix!

Love this flavor, my favorite!

33 Strawberry

Strawberry is the best! (;

Can't find it!

34 White Cherry

One of the best

35 Blackberry Wave

I love how mild the flavor is.

It's SO smooth. It's my #1.

Perfect mixture of sweet and refreshing with a hint of tang
Best flavor in my opinion

36 Citrus Crash
37 Blue Blast

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

38 Tropical 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.

Love this flavor but I can't find it anymore I would buy a case craving this flavor pleas help let me know where it is available PLEASE

Delicious! Was available only this summer, and now it's GONE! My taste buds are weeping!

39 Rain 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)

40 Mango

This drink is possibly my favorite thing ever

This is the best

The best of the best. I love it really teasty during

Mango > Lemon Lime > Lime > FruitPunch

41 Cascade Crash

I used to buy the Frost series flavor pack strictly for Glacier Freeze and never bothered to try this flavor because I thought it would taste like blue berries. Anyways, I finally tried it and I can no longer enjoy Glacier Freeze because Cascade Crash has a much better flavor! Especially, if you drink it slowly and let the flavor linger in your mouth.

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. Period.

42 Cherry 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!

I wish they had this flavor still! :(

I miss it real bad

43 Blue 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!

44 Fierce Green Apple

The first time I had the chance to get the green apple gatorade it was amazing

It is my third favorite but my friend love it.

its green

45 G2 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!

Why can't I find this flavor anymore? It is the best of all your flavors. I have a very delicate digestive system and need to drink G2 Tropical Blend Gatorade often. Please, please, please -- tell me where I can get this flavor!

G2 Tropical Blend is the only flavor we like. If it's not available. we won't buy Gatorade.

46 Tangerine

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!

One of my favorite fruits and now my number 1 gaterade

47 Rain Berry

The best Gatorade flavor - period. Not too syrupy sweet, not too acidic. Goes down very easy and is especially refreshing. Why don't they make this more available?

It was the ONLY Gatorade flavor that I could keep down while I was pregnant with both of my kiddos. Hydration is problematic when you can't keep anything down at all. I love this flavor!

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!

If god pissed in my mouth... that good

48 X-Factor Fruit Punch + Berry

I usually like the Fruit Punch and when I reach in the cooler and get this flavor by mistake it makes me happy. I'm surprised that it's so hard to find. I usually buy two when I see it but it's not always available.

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.

Favorite flavor ever I have at least 10 of these in my fridge always

I can purchase them at my vending machine.
DELICIOUS! Blue,Green,Orange, and Purple are crap compared to this.

49 X-Factor Lemon Lime + Strawberry

I never knew there were so many flavors up until now so all I can say is this flavor is by far the BEST I've had "so far" (and I've tried a lot of them)

This is the best flavor so far

Just found a couple bottles at a little market. I'm probably heading back for what little they had left

Trying to find this online because I can't find it in stores. So good.

Fruit punch and berry is such a great flavor in my opion.
