  • i have influenza and this is the best shit evaaaaaa. my headaches are going away and im starting to eat again lol. i was getting worse and worse for a few days til i drank this shit

  • They’re judging it negatively before they even drink it, that’s how you know this video is full of shit. Same awful tactic that The Fine Bros use.

  • Lovely Video clip! Apologies for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Weyannah Reyharlotte Method (google it)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for getting rid of IBS and irritable colon Immediately without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my good mate called Gray after many years got excellent success with it.

  • This is the only thing that saved me during my morning sickness during pregnancy.The cold grape is delicious I had it cold and immediately I felt good it’s unbelievable I swear by it.

  • gatorade is basically just sugar water with some salt added. they don’t even use the original formula any more because it got too popular and they wanted to make it more cheaply to increase their profits. yah. no. gatorade in 2018 is basically just a big flavored sugar water marketing scam with the money to pay popular athletes for their commercials to make us buy more. however, it certainly tastes good soooooo i’ll probably keept drinking it. but again, let us not be fooled by the actual lack of nutrient balance in gatorade

  • I’m drinking the strawberry pedialyte right now with the stomach flu. It’s REALLY not that bad and worth it considering the electrolytes it provides compared to Gatorade.

  • I’m glad for those who love it! If you do, you are doing no harm to others. As for me, absolute EW! I forced myself to drink the two bottles in two days to not waste it ( and I confess I need to do much better in that department, not wasting ). I’m sure Pediasure would be dynamite…if…I….don’t….gain….weight….off….it….

  • Youtube is not getting my LIKE!!��⚠️⚠️! PEDIALYTE IS BETTER, MUCH BETTER FOR MY SON, HE RECOVERED MUCH EASIER FROM HYDRATION THIS TIME, AND I’VE USED PEDIALYTE MAX (and I dont receive anything from no one,to say that, before someone ask)

    no mom pedialyte
    Mom:OHHH that orange fluid??
    Mom:Ok let’s go to shoppers to get orange juice!
    -_are you kidding me

  • I get hangovers worse than anyone I know. But even when I push my limits with alcohol one of the advanced care pediolytes at night before I sleep and on in the morning and I have zero hang over.

  • Does anybody know if I can substitute food with pedialite?? Not willingly of course! My anxiety makes it so I can’t eat even thinking about eating makes me feel sick

  • Who are these people?! Pedialyte is SO good! Grape tastes like grape kool-aid. It’s literally a miracle drink when you have the stomach flu.

  • These people act like Pedialyte tastes horrible. After sweating out 10 pounds for a weigh in, Pedialyte is literally the best thing god has ever blessed my tongue with touching.

  • I work construction and seen this on a job site once and normally I work with a lot of Mexicans and just assumed this was some odd Mexican drink lmao

  • They are a bunch of whiners. It’s not like you would like it so much that you will randomly crave it, but it’s definitely not bad. And when it’s cold is even better.

  • The red Gatorade (Fruit Punch) gives me a headache in the summertime as soon as I take a sip of it. I take Pedialyte with me when I go cycling in one of my bottles.

  • Chilled Cherry Pomegranate is the flavor i’m currently drinking right now. Been sick most of the day and drinking it cool is really refreshing.

  • I am allergic to this product. It’s better that I have antihistamine at home. I experienced skin rashes, throat, nose, eyes and ears irritation, lips swelling and the worst was hard to breath.

  • I love all the pretentiousness in this video… I’m drinking some right now because I have the flu and I don’t mind the taste at all. Its not the greatest, but to compare it to windex is beyond stupid!

  • Well I just spent the last 24 hours puking and shitting my ass out after getting food poisoning. My muscles started twitching and getting pins and needles, and my lower back felt so painful to touch all because I couldn’t keep a single liquid down and was getting seriously dehydrated. I tried water, vitamin water, 7up and every single mouthful came back up within seconds.

    My husband went and got me Pedialyte in Walgreens and I managed to take about small 10 sips and then fall asleep for an hour! Then I woke up insanely thirsty and sipped on a large glass of it over 30 minute period. That was an hour ago and my muscles feel less sore, my headache is duller and more importantly I haven’t puked it back up!!!

    Is the taste amazing? Nah, it tastes like jello before you put it in the refrigerator to set… but I don’t care! This stuff just saved my life when I was about to vomit or shit my internal organs out. Thanks Pedialyte!! (ps I had the red strawberry one, but I’ve one of the blue and orange in the fridge for later!).

  • Banana bag is better but pedialyte will work in a pinch, I think pedialyte is to sweet. I swear somebody saw me drinking pedialyte in a Walgreens parking lot and then they started advertising to adults, it’s a alcoholics bag of tricks.

  • I did exactly what you said. It worked ����. It was really bad and I was so sleepy from having to get up at night to relieve my bug. Thank you

  • Blue raspberry pedialyte is the best, shit reminds me of those kool aid squeezers from the mid 2000s, im drinking it right now just cause I like the way it tastes

  • Gatorade for me works quicker then medication with a stomach ache

    it helps keep my energy up,whilst giving me Somthing to actually throw up instead of just dry heaving

    I usually water mine down tho so that I can get more water

  • My daughter four months old won’t take this stuff. but for pain and fever and everything like that she takes infant ibuprofen mixed into her juice. if your kids refuse pedlyte just give them infant ibuprofen

  • “Its the color or pool water so that’s concerning”.
    Jesus lady it’s just a color! you going to be all paranoid parenting and be concerned your kid is drinking something blue?

  • Pedialyte is a must for anyone who has played any sport at a high level, which obviously doesn’t include anybody in this video. It’s what Gatorade pretends to be.
