Non bike topic, but related,,,

Hi everyone,
Just wanna ask if there's a Gatorade here in Japan?
The most famous flavored thirst quencher and not the common local sports drink here.
Anyone has a source?

Thanks,

'Poor Man's Gatorade': fistful of sugar, pinch of salt, half litre of water. It works for emergency cholera treatment, it should be fine for a 100k loop.

Alternatively, plain water and a chocolate bar will work just as well. Mg/Na/K salts are pretty common in all foods. Keep eating and drinking and you'll be fine.

Half-Fast Mike, nothing special sir, its just that i prefer it more than the local sports drink like Pocari Sweat and the like.
I'm more used to it because, and it quenches my thirst more.
Well ive tried looking @ Costco but didn't find anything.
thanks,,,
Amadean, thanks for the input, actually i substitute chocolate bars for power bars, lol.
Since power/ energy bars are not available anywhere...

I've seen some gatorade in vending machines, but its not the flavored one, its the same local sports drink.
I mean when on the run, energy/power bar is not avail in convenient store,
I substitute choco bar for an instant energy bar, or let it melt first in your pocket for an instant power gel. LoL
Havent tried calpis soda on the run yet, maybe ill give it a shot tom.
kiwisimon powdered is much better i think. Thanks for the link.
