A while back I got an email from The Clymb about a hydration drink being sold on their website. I had no idea what it was and felt it was a reasonable price to give them a shot. They came in the mail not to log ago and I decided to test them out. I was pretty sure it was going to taste like flavored chalk or not have much of a taste at all. Especially since one serving was to be mixed with 16 oz of water. The serving size is quite small and I figured just like I do with other hydration powders. my personal serving size was going to be several scoops.
So what is Skratch you might ask. The kind I decided to try was the exercise hydration drink. They also have an everyday hydration mix. It comes in powered form in several flavors. The flavors they offer are Lemons and Limes, Raspberry, Orange, and Pineapple. They also come in single serving tubes, 1lb or 2lb bags. The only option available to me was the 1lb bags which is not an issue as I can repackage them into single servings on my own.
I followed the instructions and put in a serving into 16 oz of water and gave it a few nice shakes and gave it a try. I sure did not expect things to turn out how they did. 1 serving size was perfect it gave the water a nice taste without the sugar flavor kick that many other powdered hydration drinks have. It also had a quite nice after taste. One of the one things I will warn you about is that you have to give it a nice little shake before every swig. Some of the powder takes awhile to dissolve and settles to the bottom rather quickly.
Overall I was very impressed with the Skratch exercise hydration drink I would highly recommend it to anyone and if you would like to know all of the technical stuffs and medical stuffs please check out their website.
