Some electrolyte tablets are more of a necessary evil than something you look forward to, but we’re glad to report that’s not the case with these new PowerBar flavours. Somehow, the sports nutrition stalwart has managed to all but eliminate the gag-inducing medicinal quality of the effervescent tablets, leaving a refreshing hit of Pink Grapefruit or Mango Passion Fruit.

The zero-calorie tablets, which come in tubes of 10, are designed to help keep your mineral levels – sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium and calcium – replenished.

The Pink Grapefruit version also has a caffeine boost. Although they both taste a bit salty when drunk normally, we found the flavour morphed during hard sweaty training to become exceptionally palatable for a tablet-based drink.
