Gatorade vs. Izzes

bce734e6feb811e194d322000a1cbaf4_6

Gatorades and Izzes are both served every day at San Mateo High at lunch. Which drink is better for you? Factually speaking, Izzes are far better for you than Gatorades are. Yet, people seem to favor Gatorade over Izzes.

Gatorade is a sports drink. It was made for sole purpose of rehydrating people after vigorous workouts. It contains a large amount of carbohydrates and electrolytes to help replace the ones lost during your workout. That being said, if you don’t work out, drinking Gatorade isn’t good for you. You don’t need any extra energy.

Izze is a carbonated fruit drink. That’s it. It’s 70% pure fruit juice and the rest is carbonated water. It contains all natural ingredients and contains no preservatives, plus it tastes like fruit soda.  Each can has one serving of fruit.

If Gatorades are so bad, they why are they served here? I guarantee half of the people who are drinking the Gatorade don’t participate in sports. These people are drinking Gatorade like water, which is not healthy at all. Students are being supplied with extra carb and energy they don’t need.  Serving Gatorade is nothing, but harmful in the long run.

I interviewed students from every grade and asked what they’re favorite drink. Gatorade won with twenty votes, while Izzes only had five votes. Peoples’ comments about the two drinks were very diverse too.  Sophomore Isaiah Adams claimed, “Izzes are fake.” Maeve Flynn said, “Gatorade tastes like sweat.” Could it be people don’t like Izzes because they’re healthy?

Now comparing Gatorade and Izzes. A bottle of Gatorade costs two dollars and a can of Izze costs a dollar and fifty cents. A can of Izze has 90 calories and a bottle of Gatorade has 130 calories. Izze is a better choice if you’re trying to save money and calories.

Overall, Izzes are healthier and cheaper. But, Gatorade is better in terms of popularity.  If you’re one of those avid Gatorade drinkers, next time try an Izze.
