OK, theres an ad that plays for Gatorade AM that features a milkman delivering Gatorade AM to different people, like Peyton Manning, and Mia Hamm? Anyway, My wife is convinced that the Milk Man is a pro athlete, or at least a celebrity.
Original lemon-lime Gatorade wasn’t all that sweet and was very salty. I think once the Coke company bought the name and started making it with high fructose corn syrup in multiple flavors it started tasting like Kool-Aid.
I wonder if you can even get the original formula anymore (jumbo packets of powder to be mixed in giant coolers)?
I like the original Gatorade but I didn’t know anybody in that AM commercial was famous. When I say I don’t know sports I mean it.
You guys remember that commercial where a bunch of people were saying “I am Emmit Smith”? For Visa, I think. I thought it was about identity theft and how easy it is to steal from a guy named Smith. It was years later I found out that guy was a football player. Some folks raise an eyebrow when I admit this, but hey, at least I can name my governor and senators. I even know who my mayor is.
I know that you can still get the big packets for coolers because we had them for football practices when I was in junior high in the late nineties. I can’t speak for the version of the formula, though. It wasn’t bad, considering we used hose water a lot of the time.
