These electrolyte tablets are a great alternative…

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $30 for 3 tubes (48 tablets total)

Summary

These electrolyte tablets are a great alternative to messy powders to bring along when hiking. They dissolve easily and even add a little fizz to your water. The flavors are all natural and delicious.

Pros

  • Yummy flavors
  • Dissolves easily
  • Add fizz to your water

Cons

  • Not enough flavor options in the all-natural variety
  • Tube of tablets could be considered heavy for backpacking

I purchased three tubes of these Nuun all-natural tablets on Amazon after reading about them on a blog. Previously I had been using electrolyte powders which inevitably you always end up opening the wrong way or spilling half of it on the ground.  Tablets are the perfect, non-messy solution!  

I purchased the Goji Berry Green Tea, Tangerine Ginger, and Lemon Chai. They are all delicious, but I would say that the Tangerine Ginger is my favorite since it has the most flavor. The flavors are not strong but definitely improve plain old water.  

Living in Florida, I do a lot of hiking in intense heat and keeping your electrolytes up is important. I will definitely continue to buy these in the future.
