Just a quick review of this product.
Nathan Catalyst drink mix tablets from Runners Den and threw them in the gym bag. After running hills yesterday, I tossed one in my water cup and after about 1 minute of fizz fizz, it was ready for consumption.
These tubes contain about 16 tablets, and each tablet prepares 24 oz's of sports drink. Each tube costs about $7 or $8 so that comes out to about... mmmmm..... well the cost is not the important part. I felt refreshed and balanced in hydration after drinking it, and I like the ease of preparation.
You can read the ingredient particulars, but it has all the usual stuff and tastes pretty good. The big bonus (for me) is that it is effervescent and I love bubbles. Looks like I've been wearing an Al Qaeda hostage hood all summer. Must work on face tan.
It goes flat after a short time but still has a good flavor.
Overall Rating assigned: Cake
And here is the new product review rating system you have been waiting for:
Cake = it's great and I highly recommend this product. Keep your fingers away from my mouth.
Cupcake = pretty good product, take it for what it is worth, leaves me wanting MORE
Fig Newton = it's good for you and tastes ok, but who really wants it? Survival food.
Cow pie = not on your life, but it's sometimes fun to watch others interact with this.
