Here’s What Gatorade Flavor You Are Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Gatorade may quench that “deep-down body thirst” (a real, actual ad campaign Gatorade ran back in the ’80s and ’90s), but will it quench your deep-down thirst for friendship? Heck no. But why have just Gatorade or just friends when you could have both and tell your friends which Gatorade flavor matches their vibe based on their zodiac sign? If those two things sound great to you then read on, because this article is about to quench your deep-down thirst for Gatorade-based zodiac sign vibe checks. (Oh, and if you’re curious whether your zodiac sign’s corresponding Gatorade flavor is one of the best Gatorade flavors, read this.)

Aries (March 21-April 19): Gatorade Fruit Punch

I mean, of course. People who hate fruit punch-flavored things are simply wrong and they know it. Just like people who hate Aries folks are, a.) rare, and b.) kind of mad at themselves for it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Gatorade Grape

Grape is comforting, familiar, and nostalgic, but somehow when it comes in the form of Gatorade after a long workout or day in the sun, it just hits you like a bolt of lightning to the dome. This is just like Tauruses, who love a good cozy, calming moment but will also jolt you back to earth with their cool, logical brains. Nothing like purple-flavored sugar and salt and your Taurus friends to keep you from spiraling.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Gatorade Lime Cucumber

These are two flavors we don’t always see together in the wild, let alone in a sports drink, but, boy, do they combine to create one of the coolest Gatorade flavors out there. Geminis are known to be curious, clever, and a little unpredictable, and those are the three words I would use to describe this Lime Cucumber Gatorade. Three more words I would use are refreshing, spa day, and green. One more word I would use is “that last one was too many words, oops.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Gatorade Frost Glacier Freeze

“Why are Cancers Glacier Freeze?” I hear you cry. Well friends, it is because this is a blue Gatorade, but it is not the blue you are expecting. Similarly, Cancers are awesome, but it’s never in the way you expect. You see a Cancer and think maybe they like reading cool books? Nah, turns out they love scuba diving. You meet another cancer and think, “Hmm…maybe this person loves spending weekends crocheting their own sweaters?” Nah, they spend their weekends roller skating and crocheting sweaters. Cancers will never not surprise you.

Leo (July 23-August 22): Gatorade Lemon Lime

Leos, lemon, lime—what do these things all have in common? They are all zesty. Plus, Leos like living in the lemon-limelight and we love that for them.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Gatorade Orange

This one just felt right—Virgos are bright and sharp but also sweet, just like oranges. And they may be busy but they always have a little pithy bit of wisdom to share.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Gatorade Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit Gatorade is so balanced that it doesn’t even taste like a sports drink. It is tangy, sweet, and lightly floral, and since Libras are the sign of balance and harmony, there really is no better matchup. Also, Libras are supposed to be outgoing and have almost magnetic personalities, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t drawn to passion fruit over other fruit flavors when given a choice.  

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Gatorade Mystery Flavor

What could be more mysterious than a Mystery flavor Gatorade? Nothing of course…except maybe Scorpios. And the rules of American Football (what’s the yellow handkerchief? and what’s the reverse orange exclamation point? we’ll never know).

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Gatorade Frost Icy Charge

You might be curious what an “Icy Charge” tastes like, and I’ll bet all of your Sagittarian friends are curious, too, given that they’re the most curious and knowledge-seeking of the signs. This one is for all you Sagittarians out there: Turns out the light blue liquid is pineapple-lime flavor! What a choice given the name. It’s all very baffling—a perfect web that I’m sure Sagittarians would love to sit there and unravel.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Gatorade Frost Glacier Cherry

Okay, I try not to do too many of these literal ones, but hear me out: Both glaciers and cherries take and incredible amount of patience. Glaciers because, I assume, they move at a glacial pace, and cherries because they are only in season for a couple weeks a year and then you have to wait all year for them to come back again. The only people with patience enough for either of these things? Capricorns.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Gatorade Cool Blue

Here’s the thing: Most blue-flavored things try to mask the fact that they are “blue flavored” with a fruit name (blue raspberry) or a drink name (blue curaçao) or a nonsensical unrelated-to-blue phrase (lookin’ at you, Icy Charge and Glacier Freeze), but Cool Blue? She’s not like the other girls. She owns her blueness. She is “blue flavored” through and through, and we love that for her. Honestly, there is nothing more Aquarius than owning your own particular brand of absurdity. Also, I am an Aquarius and my favorite flavor is blue, and no I will not be taking questions at this time.

Pisces (February 19-March 20): Gatorade Frost Riptide Rush

gatorade zodiac pisces

Pisces are the most romantic of the signs and there is certainly a romance novel out there that has described the act of falling in love all at once as a “riptide rush.” Not only that but the actual flavor of this Gatorade is grape and berry, which are both extremely nostalgic flavors, perfect for our Pisces friendos who love to reminisce about the good ol’ days.

  • You really did Gemini wrong! Lime Cucumber is literally the WORST Gatorade flavor out there! It just further goes to show the never ending hate for the most understood zodiac sign. Frankly I’m beyond over the Gemini slander, do better!!!
