Powerade Play Review

      A few weeks ago, I was offered the opportunity for my family to try POWERADE PLAY.  POWERADE PLAY is the first sports drink that is designed for children ages 6-12.  Since my daughter Future FBI,  is very active and it can be difficult to keep her well hydrated, I decided to give it a try.  She will drink water, but water is "boring". She prefers a thirst quencher that has taste, so she will grab a soft drink or juice, well, that was until we received the POWERADE PLAY.  She loves the taste and I love the fact that it has 25% less sugar than the leading sports drink.  Along with having less sugar, POWERADE PLAY is enhanced with Vitamin C (100% of Daily Value) and Zinc (20% DV) to help support a healthy immune system.  It is loaded with B-Vitamins (20% DV) B3, B5, B6 + B12, and has 100% natural flavors. 

     POWERADE PLAY is the official sports drink of little league baseball and softball.  I think this fact is very cool, because it offers the kids a sports drink that has fewer calories and sugars than other sports drinks.  POWERADE PLAY also features POWERADE’s ION4 advanced electrolyte system which helps replenish four electrolytes lost in sweat, sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. 
 
     When the POWERADE PLAY arrived, Future FBI  put one bottle in the freezer and the others in the refrigerator.  She went outside to practice basketball and to play a game or two of tether ball.  When she came in, she grabbed the ice cold  POWERADE PLAY from the freezer and she loved it!  My hubby and I also gave it a taste test.  We were pleased with the flavor, and decided that it would become a new staple for our family. 
 
POWERADE PLAY is available in Fruit Punch, Mixed Berry, Grape and Orange flavors. It is available in  6-pack 12 oz bottles, which is the perfect size for your young athletes!  The suggested price is $3.19 per 6-pack.  That's pretty average for a sports drinks, but when you break it down to about 53 cents each, that figure sounds much better!  For more information on POWERADE PLAY, visit http://www.poweradeplay.com/.
                                                      
                                                        
 
The opinions in this post are solely my own!   Thank you to POWERADE  for providing me with the samples.  I was not compensated for writing this review.
