I ordered the product directly from the company. The product was delivered quickly and ahead of schedule. I ordered the variety pack which included three flavors—Lemon Lime, Acai Berry and Passion Fruit. There were eight packets of each flavor.
It is recommended that each packet be added to 16 ounces. or 0.5 liter of water. At first I found it a little difficult to open the packets cleanly. I then realized that I needed to completely tear the top of the packet across the top to expose the opening. After opening the packet, pour the powder into the water, then mix or shake the solution vigorously. The solution dissolved and mixed easily.
Liquid IV claims that their solution has three times the electrolytes of traditional sport drinks. It is non-gmo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and made in the USA.
I first tried the passion fruit flavor because I thought that it was the most unique. The flavor was rather light. I then tried the lemon lime flavor and found it to be stronger. The acai berry was somewhere in the middle.
The flavors of Liquid IV are not as sweet as other mixes like Gatorade or PowerAid, which is a good thing. I've stopped drinking traditional sport drinks because of their high sugar content and overly sweet flavor. The Liquid IV solution was about right for me.
