I was had. I am in Florida, Cape Canaveral to be exact. No, I am not here to see space stuff. NASA stuff would be cool and it's actually pretty close but I'm here for a cruise. An exotic cruise to the Bahamas. Part of me thought that the Bahamas was a place that only rich people went to. Since I'm able to go, it couldn't be further than the truth. So, back to why I was had.

It's night time. I am in a hotel the night before the cruise. I need to look around for drinks when I am away from home. There isn't much to pick from around here and I do not know the area. There was a gas station a quarter of a mile away and a 7-Eleven a half mile away. I made the poor decision of taking the shorter route. I'm overreacting, of course, but there was nothing here. I chose a melon Powerade because Florida. We had done sour melon so I thought; I'll do the regular variety. I am pretty sure that the execs at Coke said, "You know what, Johnny? We're not selling anything to those weaklings as "sour melon" so let's drop the "sour" part of the name and keep selling the same thing." This is sour and tasted like the melon did. I'm going to call it a different review because in the case that it is different, you now know what the non-sour one tastes like. In short, this tastes like sour...I don't know...honeydew? I don't know what melon it actually is. Picking from watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe it is closest to some sort of man-made honeydew. It’s that mixed with the same thing that makes sour apple Jolly Ranchers sour and you've got it.

Florida. You're mostly fine. Don't try to pull one over on me. You're fine.

I’ve always had a great dislike of Powerade. No, that’s not right. I have always had a great disinterest in Powerade. When it first hit the market in Western New York I was in high school and I remember getting one and thinking that it tasted like Gatorade, with even less flavor. Back then there weren’t many varieties of Gatorade and I wasn’t a huge fan of it to begin with, as it lacked in bursting flavor that my teenage taste buds craved. I curbed that craving by making my own iced tea at home with a mix and about seven times the recommended amount of sugar. I should have a giant hole in my head where my teeth should be. Back to the point though, I had Powerade once, wasn’t impressed and this may be the first time since then that I’ve had it. You know what? I was wrong. This tastes pretty much exactly like blue Gatorade. It’s a watery berry drink with a bunch of sugar in it, but not enough to think that it’s insanely sweetened. I can assure you that there is probably 1/20 the amount of sugar in this than what I put in my high school tea. God, I’m so disgusted with myself for that. Ugh. I’m lucky I don’t have diabetes.

Powerade ION4 Sour Melon

When I was in high school, I drank Powerade almost every day because it was the only thing besides water in the vending machines before 1pm. I know a lot of people hate the taste, but I don't mind it at all.

Nowadays, I only drink Powerade (or Gatorade) when I'm sick. I made an exception today because I am a big fan of sour drinks so I had to try this. While it does have a slight sour flavor, it's definitely not as strong as I hoped it would be. When I drink/eat something sour I want my lips to pucker. Sadly this didn't happen.

Also, this really doesn't taste like melon. It might be the color that's throwing my taste buds off, but it tastes more like green apple to me. Overall it's a decent drink, and probably the best Powerade flavor I've ever had. It's super refreshing and makes me feel like I should be playing kickball at the park with a bunch of my friends.
