HDX Grape Berry Performance Formula
Last Updated: 3/30/2011 3:07 PM
HDX Hydration Mix is a powdered hydration product that was designed with the action sports community in mind. The stevia and crystalline fructose sweetened formulation contains 25 calories per packet. As far as powdered beverages go, the flavor is quite good, with a pleasant tasting “grape berry” fruit flavor that’s on par with a sports drink. Fortunately, there’s minimal after effects from the stevia, which blends in with the fruit flavors and sugar. Functionally, they’ve used a proprietary blend of amino acids, minerals, electrolytes, and a small amount of sugar. It’s definitely a thirst quenching product, which is obviously a good thing for a product that calls itself “hydration mix.” Packaging is a 0.39 oz. packet that is designed to be mixed with 16.9 ounces of water (or something close thereto). Mixing it with this amount of water makes for a formulation that’s competitive, at least in terms of calories, with low calorie sports drinks. The branding is cleanly executed, with a minimalist looking blue flame image and block letters for the HDX typeface. It gives off a vibe that the product is technical (and, therefore, functionally credible), but approachable. Again, if we’re comparing it to other stick packs that are on the market today, it’s among the best out there. Overall, some of the best flavor and packaging that we’ve seen in the stick pack category and one of the few that might be able to cross over and compete with RTD products.
