It tastes exactly like you'd imagine a lime/cucumber beverage would taste.

I tried it a few weeks back, and it certainly wasn't the worst Gatorade flavor I've tried. I would not call it "excellent", but it was not bad.

But then, I enjoy the very common Mexican snack that consists of cucumber slices with lime juice squirted over them and Tajin seasoning sprinkled on top. (Pepinos con chile)

So I'm already used to the lime/cucumber combination flavor. But I can certainly see why it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea.

I can tell you it tastes like SHIT. I picked up two large bottles of the stuff thinking it was just lime. I realized when I mixed it with the Miralax for the colonoscopy prep that it was lime cucumber. I was not about to go back to the store. It was simply god awful.

You’re supposed to drink the Cucumber-Lime Smart Water. That has to be one of the most refreshing things I’ve had in a long time. Wish it wasn’t so damned expensive (for water).

Yuck.
We bought a variety of Gatorade when my daughter had her tonsils out.
This was one of them & she was not a fan.

I begrudgingly downed them (mini-bottles luckily) after doing yard work & pouring sweat.
But, I feel the same about most grape flavored drinks, especially Gatorade. Reminds me of children's chewable Tylenol. Razz

It and original are my two favorite Gatorade flavors.

I thought it tasted like ass the first time I tried it but it has grown on me. I grab a bottle or 2 occasionally for something different. As was mention, I like the smart water flavored better.

Cucumbers are like 85% water with very little flavor to begin with so I’m confused as to what is “cucumber” flavor?

I tend to love any food with lime or cucumber o r both combined. There's no way, imo, to make this Gatorade flavor drinkable. It goes along with watermelon flavored stuff. Love watermelon, but hate when it's a fake tasting watermelon flavor. This flavor just tastes off and watering it down didn't help.

To me cucumbers have a lot of flavor and I pick up on it immediately when there's cucumber in something I eat.

Personally I like to slice them and let the slices soak in a bath of vinegar and sliced jalapenos or banana peppers.

Good stuff.

Yes, cucumbers definitely have a noticeably distinct flavor.

If you don't believe me, and plain cucumber doesn't have any taste to you, an easy test is to try making cucumber water. (Made by soaking cucumber slices in water then drinking the water; it's a fairly common drink served at fancy-ish summertime gatherings.)

Then drink some of the cucumber-infused water alongside some plain water from the same water source as a control sample, and tell me you can't taste the distinct cucumber flavor. Big Grin

It is a favorite.

My wife soaks the slices in a salt water bath, then drains and mixes the cucumber with sour cream or yogurt (plain, un-flavored yogurt) and dill. Very tasty.



Any cocktail can be a shrimp cocktail if you put your mind to it, and if you carry lots of loose shrimp in your pocket.

My roommate bought a juicer some years back. He put carrots, cucucumbers, potatoes and celery in the thing and then drank it. I refused to even taste it. Yuck...

Cucumber Gatorade tastes like surprise! Big Grin

Like me, I think most people try it accidentally thinking it was another flavor.
