G Natural and G2 Natural

A couple weeks ago I was contacted by a PR firm to see if I wanted to try two new Gatorade products, G Natural and G2 Natural. I love G2 and love free stuff, so of course I said yes!

Here is an excerpt from the press release:

For athletes who thirst for natural products, Gatorade® has harnessed its 45+ year competitive edge in sports performance to introduce G Natural™ and G2 Natural™. Made with natural flavors, colors and ingredients, G Natural and G2 Natural have the same performance and hydration benefits as original Gatorade Thirst Quencher and G2, with a great taste that athletes will love. The new, natural offerings are now available exclusively at select Whole Foods stores.

Like I said before, I am a big fan of G2, so obviously I drank the G2 Natural first. In general, I like G2 more than regular Gatorade because it is lighter and not at all syrupy. I have an aversion to drinks that leave my mouth feeling sticky and heavy (umm gross), and G2 does not do that. G2 Natural is also very light and did not taste any different than G2. Given that it is made with natural flavors, colors, and ingredients, I definitely recommend G2 Natural. G Natural also tasted the same as regular Gatorade. If you like Gatorade, you will like G Natural. Given that G2 Natural has 40 calories per bottle while G Natural has 100 calories, I am again more inclined to like G2 Natural more. Either way, the Natural products are a good choice for anyone looking to rehydrate and replenish their body while working out!

G Natural and G2 Natural are available exclusively at select Whole Foods stores. Visit to find the store nearest you. Suggested retail price for a 16.9-oz bottle is $1.49. (Via Press Release)

  1. Grrrr. we don't have a Whole Foods here. Bummer. B really likes G2- I'm more of a Propel girl myself. G2 is better than regular gatorade for sure, but it's still pretty thick for me. I often pour some into a glass and cut it with water if that's all we have at home.

    Fun one to try! I'll definitely look for it the next time I'm in a WF!

  2. I try to stick to water... but lately I have been pouring a little bit of crystal light powder (WHICH IS SO NOT GOOD FOR YOU) in my water bottles... just for the taste. I also like water with lemon and mint leaves.

  3. They've been giving them out at the gym lately for free! I love them!
