Powerade Option is now discontinued and replaced with Powerade Zero. RIP Black Cherry; we'll miss you.

I edited the words that seemed to be biased toward the drink. Trivial, but whatever! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 12.203.20.240 (talkcontribs) 01:39, March 22, 2006 (UTC)

Removed the line at the bottom, "* Powerade is also a 60 priest on rexxar a sever of World of Warcraft" Because let's face it, nobody cares.--SunWuKong 00:17, 28 November 2006 (UTC)


[edit]

Can someone put up the Powerade logo? They article looks bad without one.

Powerade and olympic games 1996[edit]

When i read the page, it said that Powerade became the sponsor in 1934. I changed it to 1994, but i can't find a confirmation. Seems logical enough, though. Feel free to correct me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eazy-O (talkcontribs) 00:41, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Powerade and olympic games 1992[edit]

The official sport drink in the 1992 olympics in Barcelona was Aquarius not Powerade...

FROZEN BLAST[edit]

There is no mention whatsoever to the "Frozen Blast" flavour which I guess could be the Mountain Blast but... I'm not sure, and which happens to have the B3, B6 and B12 mentioned in the advertisement... But tastes like some sort of bubblegum... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 200.106.69.208 (talkcontribs) 13:22, June 18, 2006 (UTC)

Koolaid[edit]

In the article, this line appears: "Kool-Aid also holds a fair share of potential sports drink consumers." I think it is very debatable--and probably not true...Kool-Aid is marketed towards children while the later two really aren't. Modor 18:52, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Modor

Flavours[edit]

The Powerade flasks in Sweden has a "New" tag now. Also saw "Mountain Blast" and "Snow Storm" (new name for Ice Storm ?) and those aren't listed in the Europe flavour list. Any other Europe country seeing the same ? (Forgot to sign) 194.68.126.35 (talk) 07:33, 19 March 2008 (UTC) fagol I don't know if it was widely marketed, but Powerade Play was around our area for a few years (2007-2010). It was a lighter calorie version of the regular. Coke never gave me an answer to the question of what happened to it, but it disappeared off their MyCoke Rewards page early last year.204.108.0.11 (talk) 04:29, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Vegitarian?[edit]

Is powerade Vegitarian, as it only contains the milk of mammals? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.22.193.134 (talk) 19:35, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was Consensus for move and in keeping with naming conventions.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 10:59, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Move request completed. Please discuss this move here. After a few days an admin will come along to determine whether consensus exists for the move. Thank you!--Aervanath lives in the Orphanage 17:17, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Comment. Can someone please specify which part of WP:MOSNAME applies here? Thanks. --Born2cycle (talk) 17:33, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. The MOS clearly states trademark names "in full or partial uppercase (such as Invader ZIM) should have standard capitalization (Invader Zim)". --Born2cycle (talk) 20:17, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Support. Seems pretty clear cut under MOS:TM and MOS:CAPS. Page was originally at "Powerade" until May 2008. Station1 (talk) 03:52, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Are these energy or sports drinks?[edit]

I didn't initially believe that Powerades are energy drinks, however on the labels on some of the flavors, they are supposedly energy drinks (for example Mountain Blast, Arctic Shatter, etc.). Are these energy drinks, or sports drinks, or does it depend on the flavor? 71.233.247.70 (talk) 02:22, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

sponsorships[edit]

is powerade not the official drink of the NHL? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.25.180.159 (talk) 05:54, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Griefed[edit]

Some guy relabeled Powerade and Gatorade to "Connorade" in the first part there... can anyone fix that?

Yes check.svg Done You could do that yourself by opening the History tab & clicking "Undo" on the last edit. Rodhullandemu 20:15, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! I hate when people grief Wiki.MatthewBlacke (talk) 20:16, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Two WikiProjects tagged on the same talk page[edit]

Specifically on this talk page itself, is there any reason that could explain why there are two WikiProjects tagged at the top of this talk page? --RossSLynch (talk) 19:22, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Powerade. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
