    Default G2 released! Low-cal Gatorade!

    I discovered G2, the long-awaited lower calorie Gatorade. It's available in (at least) three varieties: Fruit Punch, Orange, and Grape. 25 calories per 8 ounce serving, exactly half of the normal Gatorade varieties. Although it doesn't appear to be a fully operational site just yet, the new site for the product can be found at INTRODUCING G2 | Gatorade.

    In other Gatorade news, a link at Gatorade® to the press release about the upcoming Gatorade Tiger line has a graphic that may represent the bottle design, which appears to include a silk-outline picture of Tiger, the word Gatorade written small above the T in Tiger, and then the word Tiger larger, with the signature lightning bolt replacing the letter I in Tiger. The link can be found on the bottom left hand corner of the page. I've also included an enlarged jpeg of the graphic.

    I found 20oz loose and 32oz at an off-brand c-store on my way home last week. I tried the grape, it's not too bad.

    Gatorade was smart, playing it safe with mainstream flavors. I remember Coke's Powerade Light - Andean Chill and Aleutian Stream. Ugh.

    I tried the fruit punch, and it was sickeningly sweet - nothing like the light, refreshing taste I've come to expect from Gatorade. I don't see how this could quench anyone's thirst.

    I have yet to see G2 in my parts.
    My guess is that it has some artificial sweetners in it.
    My guess is that there is a small amount of HFCS for the
    carbohydrates. LOL I'm too lazy to do a Google search.

    Oh well another low carb/diet drink that I can't drink.
    Just my small venting but when will "they" develop a low carb
    drink that does not use those nasty artificial sweetners?
    I call them the "toilet" sweetners.....LOL Use your imagination.

    I am looking for the vending machine tabs for the G2 products or the graphics for the flavors, lemon-lime and strawberry-kiwi...
    Anyone have any leads?
