Gone are the days when you’d slink hungover into a CVS for Pedialyte on a Sunday morning making vague excuses about needing it for your sick small child or niece or whatever. The company has finally leaned into its role as the ultimate hangover cure and blessed us with Sparkling Rush Powder Packs: “a fizzy way to quickly replenish fluids and electrolytes lost to dehydration.”
Yup, the new packets (which come in grape and cherry flavor) are made of potassium, sodium, chloride, and sugar, meaning they are exactly what the body needs when it’s depleted from running a marathon, or spending hours at the gym or, IDK, drinking so much spiked eggnog to get through the holidays you couldn’t see straight. Any of those scenarios, really!
All you have to do to make the packets drinkable is pour them into cold water. From there, you’ll have a sparkling cherry- or grape-flavored drink with the perfect hangover-curing balance of electrolytes and sugar.
