New Skratch electrolyte mix at Fleet Feet   
  

This is not a sports drink. This is an all natural electrolyte mix for those times when water isn't enough but a sports drink is too much. Skratch daily Electrolyte Mix is designed to help you maintain an optimal level of hydration in that place between just sitting around and working out. With just a hint of sweetness it's flavored with only real fruit and contains no artificial sweeteners, coloring agents or preservatives. That means it has everything you need and nothing you don't. The result is a simple and clean taste that you'll actually enjoy drinking.
