G-Force Mango & Pineapple
Wait, wasn’t this a kids’ film about super-guinea pigs? Oh well.
Brought to you by the hydration specialists behind Pepsi, V and, er, Dilmah, it has to fight hard to distinguish itself in the sports drink market, and I’m not sure it succeeds. It has 5.2% real fruit juice, 23% of your daily carbohydrate needs and 14% of your energy needs… and a generous 79% of your sugar needs in a 650ml bottle.
To its credit, the packaging doesn’t claim to be anything it isn’t. It’s a carefully-phrased “fruit drink with added vitamins”, a “supplemented food” with a rather neat flip-cap and unfortunate metallic aftertaste. The only extraneous copy is a bit that says:
Want to know why this delicious mango and pineapple fruit drink is green? We wondered about that too.
