Gatorade...have we seen this before?

Is it just me or is this new Gatorade 'G Series' something what we (as triathletes and long distance fools) have seen before? I have yet to try any of these products - but the 'prime' reminds me of Hammer Gel, GU, or any of the other yummy handy gels we all love so much. And the 'recover' kind of brings back the feelings of ONE or any other recovery drink.

Does anyone else feel this way? Has anyone tried this product? Thoughts? Feelings?

This has been bothering me since I saw the first commercial. Brings back the same feeling I had when Nike got involved with the sport of swimming.

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Hmmm...I heard it's the Gatorade endurance drink re-packaged and re-priced. I wonder if that's true.

I can't get a lot of these products up here, but I am always a little suspicious of "Latest" products, or "New and Improved"

I sure would like to know if anyone else has the skinny on this.

Never tried any of them but that Gatorade prime is just a gel right? I guess Gatorade is just jumping into a different market.

I havent tried the 1 or 3, but the 2 is regular old Gatorade. They are just trying to get into the market. I havent look at the nutrition side of it, but I wouldnt be surprised if the prime is high in sugar, like powerbar, I cant go high sugar.

Looks like a money churner to me.

I think they are just trying to jump on the bandwagon and have repackaged products.

I havn't seen any of these products yet. I loathe gatorade and only buy or use when desperation strikes. Interesting.

Haven't seen it and don't plan on trying it. I'll stick with the originals from our sport. :)
