The story behind Gatorade

Gatorade is the drink that we usually rely on when we need a sudden burst of energy. The sports drink is currently distributed in around 80 countries and its manufacturing is done by PepsiCo.

While the magnitude of Gatorade’s reach is evident from these two facts, it had a very humble beginning.

In fact, it was initially made by the University of Florida physicians. The idea was to combat fatigue among the players of a football team based in Florida. And in case you were wondering the name of the team: It’s Florida Gators.
