Yes, I should have mentioned that REI sells vitalyte. My favorite flavor is orange but I also like punch and lemon. The citrus flavor has the least amount of taste in is most like just drinking a slightly flavored water. You can get a pack of mixed flavor packets and try them all. Vitalyte is the ONLY hydrating beverage sold in the Grand Canyon so you know it's proven and effective.
