Changes over the years
Gatorade has come a long way since its lemon flavor. There has been 61 more flavors created since then. Gatorade has also developed many different types of drinks, bars and chews. These products help people get energy, re-hydrate and recover from physical activity.
This company grew fast and could not keep it going in the university lab so it was bought by Stokely-Van Camp. Then it was purchased by Quaker Oats Company and finally by PepsiCo in 2001. Still today the inventors and the university of Florida get money from the sales of Gatorade because of a trust created in 1973.
