People have been asking us for months why we’ve not reviewed any of the Propel products. We’ve actually been drinking Propel longer than we’ve been doing these reviews. Unfortunately, the first few years in the Propel history were marked with lots of flavor changes. This happened so often that as soon as we settled on a favorite flavor it would disappear. Late last year we started hearing that 2009 would hold big changes for Propel, so we decided to hold off until those changes seemed stable. We’re finally to that point.
We’ve been purchasing Propel Grape for months now. The new bottling is nicer and more eco-friendly, and now that some customer feedback has led Pepsi to get back to the original sweetener mix, we’re very glad to say that Propel Grape is an awesome low carb sports drink. Actually, we’ve never been disappointed with a Propel drink at all. We do think the grape flavor has now risen to the top of the group however. It’s got a really smooth quality with the right blend of fruit flavor and sweetness. Nothing beats it for rehydrating, especially when it’s ice cold. We highly recommend this low carb sports drink.
Each eight ounce serving of Propel Grape provides just 10 calories, 75 grams of sodium, and 2 grams of sugar. Each serving also contains 20mg of potassium and 59mg of phosphorous. Propel Grape is also a good source of B Vitamins. Propel sports drinks are sweetened with sugar, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium.
Be sure to let us know what you think about the other Propel flavors in the comments. If you think we missed the boat, and one of the other flavors is the best, then let us know about that too!
