    In the mid 80s, there was a strike against the company I worked for. Being salaried, I was ‘sent’ to staff the operation. I spent 6 weeks doing 12 hr days during June/July in Arkansas. They had endless bottles and cans and Gatorade available to keep us hydrated. I drank gallons of the stuff during that time. Have not touched a drop since.

    I was out of school by the time Gatorade became big, but I do remember those orangish, yellow salt tablets we took for cramping.

    I love pickle juice. I drink it at night if I have leg cramps.

    Am I the only one that has probably 3-5 half eaten jars of pickles in my fridge at any one time? :roflmao:

    Damn, I'm old but fell in love with Gatorade about 15 years ago so I never knew about those caps. Besides beer and water it's all I drink. Still convinced Gatorade Zero has sugar in it because IMO it taste just as good as regular Gatorade. Now as for Powerade, yuk.

    Got to have pickle with it and it seems incomplete if I don't have some chips with it.

    Ever have a shot of Jamesons followed by a shot of pickle juice? It's called a pickleback. Not my jam but a favorite of frat boys every where.

    I gobbled those salt tablets when I worked in the mill on an open hearth

    Working there you could drink quarts of water and still never have to pee

    A new moonshine bar/grill opened in Slippery Rock a couple of weeks ago. They have the Pickleback shot there. And yeah forget getting anywhere near it on Friday or Saturday nights it's packed with college kids.
