Adventures in Drinking (Pocari) Sweat

"Oh. This stuff is good. I'm going to get one."

"Ok... wait... does that say 'sweat'?"

"Yes. It's good."

"Like sweat that comes out of your body?"

"It's good if you've been sweating."

"So not drinking sweat?"


"Ok. I am trusting you on this."

I learned a lot in Japan. :D

Pocari Sweat

For the record, it tastes like sugar water with a hint of grapefruit.

On their website, Otsuka Pharmaceutical claims it's closer to body fluid than water.

I'm pretty sure they're referring to the salt, potassium and magnesium in the drink. Pretty sure.
