Top 10 Best Gatorade Flavors

The Top Ten
1 Glacier Freeze Glacier Freeze Product Image

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.

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)

This flavor is nice and crisp. I have always enjoyed the Frost flavors more than the original lineup because they are much less salty and closer in taste to Vitamin Water. If you enjoy the any of the Frost flavors, this one will surely impress.

Drinking one right now! One day my dad decided to be adventurous around two years ago and picked it and I've been addicted since. I usually have 2 bottles in my fridge at a time. This honestly tastes like heaven and is my favorite drink to boot.

2 Lemon Lime Lemon Lime Product Image

This one isn't for everybody, but I personally like it enough. Recommended if you want a salty lime aftertaste, but it's pretty much a lemonade overall flavor.

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.

When I tried this flavor, I was shockingly surprised by how it didn't taste super sour that you couldn't even drink it. I literally thought that it would have tasted awful. For me, it's not the best, but the perfect lemon lime drink.

This is the best flavor ever!
Also, this is scientifically proven, lemon lime gatorade is a booty juice. That means that it will help your butt get bigger. Win win scenario. Trust me, I saw it on the internet once.

3 Cool Blue Cool Blue Product Image

I tried the zero sugar version and it's great. It tastes like how the Berry Blue Jelly Belly car freshener smells like. Very nice.

I tried Gatorade because I drink way too much pop and I don't like water, so I had to find an alternative. I like drinks with a lot of flavor unlike water which is why I hate glacier freeze. I've tried glacier freeze, cool blue, orange, lemon lime, fruit punch, green apple, and some purple one that I forget the flavor of. Cool blue is by far my favorite and the only one that I can finish quickly.

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.

I love Cool Blue, I've drank nothing but Cool blue since I was diagnosed w cancer 3 yrs ago! Not that I have too, I just want it all the time, I have done this special thing where you take the sports bottle & only fill it up half way, then lay ( I always put at least 4-5 because I drink a lot) it down flat in the freezer let it freeze then pour Gatorade in the bottle and it fills up and when it starts to melt it's cold Gatorade also you may want to put just a tiny bit of water in the bottle before u fill it up. I cannot think of the name of it but it's a purple Gatorade it's not grape or glacier freeze but I love it so much and I beat my head against the wall trying to think of this other great gatorade.

4 Orange Orange Product Image

At first, I thought it is orange juice because it looks like the same. One of the best flavors of Gatorade as well as the blue one.

Please bring back Orange G2! That is all my husband and I use to drink! It was always in such high demand that we couldn't hardly find it on the shelves... then it was discontinued... I don't get it!

This gatorade flavor is beyond the best I drink at least one every single day. It helps get tasks done. This also cools off the body on a hot day. This is the thirst quencher beverage!

The best ever Gatorade flavor. All I remember from it was getting home from school, going to play Basket ball, and slurping one of these

5 Fruit Punch Fruit Punch Product Image

This is THE best flavor, hands down! Something about this drink, this flavor works the best against fighting a hangover. EVERY time I've taken this flavor, I feel revived and back to my old self in record time! It really does replenish your energy! Keep up the good work Gatorade!

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.

ITS awesome! It's a tangy sweet mix that give off refreshing flavors and taste its good its at number four but it should least be number three or two well if you like sweet flavors its up to you

6 Riptide Rush Riptide Rush Product Image

This is the ONLY gatorade flavor I will drink. All the others are too chemically tasting, overpowering and honestly make me feel more thirsty. When I drink Riptide Rush, I feel quenched, and the flavor is subtly akin to Purplesaurus Rex Koolaid, and it tastes good. The only one I will drink ever. If they do away with it, I will just eat more bananas and stick to only H20. Sad. The newer light purple flavor tastes like chemical pineapple. It's too sweet and gross. I bought it by mistake. Got poured straight down the drain. Boo.

I'm pretty sure the "secret" flavor is pineapple. Next time you drink it, close your eyes and smell it. Tell me if you don't smell pineapple. It's even more obvious if you're mixing the powder. I believe it is grape and pineapple and maybe one other flavor. Thoughts?

This flavor is awesome, it has a mild grapey flavor with a hint of raspberry I only drink this or citrus cooler. I mistakenly grabbed an icy chArge this evening because the color is pretty close but I realized it as soon as I smelled that trash. Rr all the way!

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!

7 Ice Punch Ice Punch Product Image

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.

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.

This flavor is so awesome. I love how good it tastes. I wish they would sell it in 32 ounces, it's a real pain to buy it in little 12 ounce bottles. Why did Gatorade discontinue selling it in large bottles? They used to sell it in big bottles in the 80's. WHY NOT NOW!

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.

8 Grape

This one's massively overhated. I tried the zero version and it's really smooth. Very nice. Would choose this one WAY over Fruit Punch or that godawful Arctic Blitz one.

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

So much better than Fierce Grape!

One of the best flavors for sure.

It is the best. All other flavors are crap!

9 Berry Berry Product Image

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.

This is the ONLY FLAVOR I'll drink. It's getting harder and harder to find!
Please make it easier to buy this!
I add additional sea salt and a hydration packet of Normalyte.

I absolutely loved the Fierce Berry! Please, Bring it Back, if only for a short while!

10 Fierce Grape Fierce Grape Product Image

Fierce Grape is amazing it has the taste of grape but a lot more sweet. It's amazing it's the only kind I drink. It has a tangy taste but again it's very sweet. It's at the very top of my list! It never got old at all. Haha I'm watching the evil monkey. Laugh out loud of topic, but you get the point.

Grape is fierce, all right! I used to like fruit punch, but that's so yesterday now to me! I L-O-V-E Fierce Grape, because it's the only Gatorade with a natural flavor. Fruit punch tastes so artificial, don't you think?

Yum. Grape is definitely my favorite, I also like Fruit Punch but I have to say Grape definitely beats Fruit Punch. My opinion, Please don't hate.

By far the BEST flavor... Especially since it's good hot or cold, which is a big thing for me. I have problems with severe dehydration and the only thing that helps is Gatorade. Every other flavor is too acidic or has a watered down flavor. LOVE FIERCE GRAPE!

The Contenders
11 Glacier Cherry Glacier Cherry Product Image

This one tastes like almond extract which is slightly strange for a drink. Not even close of being my favorite, but it's alright.

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.

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.

This is the only one I drink. I keep hoping you guys will make a powdered version so I can always have some on hand. as it stands I usually have 6 in my fridge but it is a standing rule for me to always keep at least two bottles in my fridge at all times, in case I get sick or get hung over.

12 Lemonade Lemonade Product Image

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

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!

My husband loves this flavor. It's the only one he wants me to buy anymore. He drinks gallons of this while working every week.

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

13 Fierce Strawberry Fierce Strawberry Product Image

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.

Always was a die-hard Fierce Grape/Cool Blue sort of a guy ever since I was little, but the moment I tried Strawberry two years ago I was hooked and it became my new favorite flavor! Tastes similar to strawberry Nerds candy in a beverage!

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.

Gatorade Fierce Strawberry is hands down The Best flavor! I have to hunt to find it at a store and rarely succeed - but when I do, I buy the entire stock at that store!
WHY must it be so hard to find?!

14 Lime Cucumber Lime Cucumber Product Image

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.

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.

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.

I tried this flavor a year or two ago just to try it out.. And by god, I get it just about every time I get gatorade in general! It just tastes crisps and is so unique compared to other flavors.

15 Black Ice

This one's a limited edition. It tastes a bit like grape and like dark berries or something. It's really good and looks hardcore. If you see one, please try it. It's worth it.

16 Raspberry Lemonade

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?

My favorite getting harder to find. Gues. Will find another drink.

Best flavor in the world

17 Strawberry Kiwi Strawberry Kiwi Product Image

Since my 81 yr old mother drink this & incorporate it in her daily liquid consumption, she's been more energetic, refreshed & renewed. But she's almost always running out of this drink, it seems like there's not much supply of this flavor.

My pregnant heart is broken that I cannot find this anywhere. I have to resort to the Vitamin Water strawberry-kiwi and it doesn't measure up.

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

I also can't find strawberry kiwi anymore and it's the ONLY one of the gator aids that I like. Please make available again.

18 Strawberry Strawberry Product Image

Had it once but love it!

19 Watermelon

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.

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.

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

20 Citrus Cooler Citrus Cooler Product Image

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.

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 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!

So glad they brought Citrus Cooler back! Love this flavor. Also Michael Jordan's favorite flavor.

21 G2 Grape G2 Grape Product Image

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%.

The G2 series is so smooth and light. The grape G2 has the best taste of all other grape flavors out there.

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

G2 grape is the best gatorade flavor by far! Definitely deserves #1!

22 Rain Berry Rain Berry Product Image

My favorite Gatorade! This one is hard to find because if Wal-Mart sales out I have to go to kroger to find it. Literally the only reason I ever go to kroger is to buy this one particular Gatorade! It needs to be advertised more often and sold in more convenient stores!

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!

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?

This is a more natural tasting drink and has just a hint of a light berry taste which makes it one of the best gatorades. Major grocery store just stopped stocking it and I'm really bummed. People need to try it and there sales would go up

23 Green Apple Green Apple Product Image

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.

It is my favorite, and probably the only reason I buy gatoraide over poweride. Sadly I have not been able to find it this last while, and it was only sold in 7 eleven to start... And to be honest - if I am wanting the green apple and can not find it - I do not buy another flavour as there is maybe only 1-2 other flavours that I would even consider.

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.

How is this on the second page? Green Apple is one of the best flavors, for everyone, size, age, and background.

24 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

This is the best of the blues. The flavor is perfect. One step above Glacier freeze and definitely better than Grape. I was buying 50 bottles a month during my peak training weeks and now I can't find it in any store. What's the problem? I think people need a taste bud adjustment.

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!

Best and hardest to fine. I feel that it's number eleven now because no one else has tried it and if they did they didn't recognize that it was a different flavor. Blueberry Pomegranate is definitely the best. If you haven't tried, look out for it, it'll blow tastebuds back back to life.
