I actually like and bought Gatorade's dropped Tiger Focus sports drink
So word has it Gatorade will stop selling their Gatorade Tiger Focus drink. News of this surfaced two days before Tiger Woods’ mysterious Thanksgiving weekend car crash and Gatorade officials said they planned this move months ago.
I actually bought the drink quite a bit and will be sad to see it leave the shelves. I liked the bold, cherry flavor to it. I’ve always been partial to Gatorade over Powerade (except when Powerade is much cheaper, which is often the case in the grocery store). In the morning I like Vitamin Water’s pink Focus drink (or about 48 ounces of Whole Foods coffee if I’m staying at home), but usually before or after physical activity, if Tiger’s Gatorade drink is available, I usually scoop it up.
Now it looks like its back to the purple Gatorade drink with no scowling, intense eyes on the label. I’m surprised the drink isn’t selling as good as I thought it would. Maybe there’s just too many dang Gatorade flavors out there. I noticed a lot of beverage carts at golf courses all over the world carried Tiger’s drink. Surely I’m not the only golfer out there who got attached to it.
I’m not sure whether or not it made me a better golfer, but it did replenish my fluids and tasted mighty good doing so.
But I should mention…One side effect of Gatorade’s Tiger drink is that I found myself uncharacteristically hitting on cocktail waitresses after my round.
