We preferred the Tropical flavor of A Game. There’s a pleasant note of mango, which pairs nicely with the added honey and salt. In addition to honey, the product uses sucralose (to cut the calories and carbs) and crystalline fructose as the sweeteners for the drink. As compared with the Citrus flavor, this one has a slightly more unique flavor (at least in terms of other sports drinks that we’ve sampled). That said, it’s still a very mainstream flavor -- anyone who likes sports drinks could definitely pick this one up and enjoy it. Functionally, the product, which labels itself “vitamin fortified hydration,” features electrolytes, electrolytes, and carbohydrates. While the levels vary for sports drinks, this one appears to be within the realm of what’s normal for the category. Visually, the product has a polished presentation, with bold colors and a front panel that is easy to ready and instantly identifiable as a sports drink. “A Game” is certainly a name that is synonymous with sports, but it’s hard to say if trying to use a common saying is a good or bad approach in the long run. Beyond that, the technical approach doesn’t have a ton of personality, which is more in line with health and nutritional channels rather than the mainstream. Still, we like what’s inside the bottle and feel like they have a good starting point to expand from.
