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

    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

    Read the related article. This is meant to be a sports drink for athletes who need it (as an alternative to Powerade or Gatorade). http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrit
