The flavours are tasty without being overly sweet

Skratch Labs’ Hydration Sport Drink Mix performance

These drinks are designed to promote recovery and supply electrolytes that were lost from sweating during prolonged activity, such as working out or even just doing outside chores in the heat.

I tested this drink in both situations and found it to not only be refreshing, but effective at increasing energy. It was beneficial as an intra-workout and recovery drink, and it was refreshing after several hours of lawn work.

Taste and solubility

The pineapple flavor was my personal favorite, but the other four I tried (Lemon & Lime, Orange, Strawberry Lemonade, and Fruit Punch) were all tasty as well – without being overly sweet. It mixes very well with just a spoon or a shaker cup, and there is no leftover powder at the bottom when you’re finished. On top of that, it’s a simple formula with less than ten ingredients.

Skratch Labs also makes other sports nutrition products such as Energy Chews, Wellness Hydration Drink Mix, Crispy Rice Cakes, and more.
