Whether you’re hitting the gym or just trying to stay hydrated on a hot summer day, a cold bottle of Gatorade can be a great way to get the fluids and nutrients your body needs.

With its expertly created blend of electrolytes and carbohydrates, this sports drink has been helping people to rehydrate and refuel for decades.

In fact, the very first Gatorade flavor introduced in 1965 was lemon-lime. It was the only flavor available for over 15 years.

While the original lemon lime flavor is still available and undoubtedly beloved by millions, there are now so many different Gatorade flavors to choose from.

When it comes to sports drinks, Gatorade is probably the most well-known brand thanks to its long-standing reputation and iconic bright, bold colors.

So in this article, we thought we’d have some fun and explore all of the best Gatorade flavors by color!
