    I thought this was very good. I found it very refreshing after my power walks on hot humid days and it tasted great... very grape-y! - 7/8/14

  • Could I use splenda or stevia in place of sugar? is there any value to using real sugar other than taste? - 8/20/14

  • Question: why does the description state this is designed for "endurance workouts or exercise in hot, humid weather"? It's hot where I live - we recently had two weeks of 100F+ high temperatures - but it's dry. When the air temperature is over 100F, the humidity is usually 20% or less. - 8/19/14
