Pocari sweat
      #266366 - Mon Nov 03 2008 02:50 AM

Just sitting here drinking an ice cold Pocari Sweat drink. Wondering if anyone else has become hooked on them since being in bali?

I got ill over there this year and the hossy put me onto them. They're a electrolite replacer drink. I have found an asian grocery store over here which sells them, I buy them out every time I go in. hehehe

I sweat heaps when I am in bali, so live on them now...

It is in that little street where the Vic Market is. Therry St. There is an asian supermarket there. As you walk into it, there's the fridge on the right.

I was also out at Box Hill for work last week, and the BH plaza has it too. Two of the asian grocers had it in there if you're over that side..

I am talking about over here in Australia/Melbourne.

I know everywhere sells it in Bali, but I meant I have found it over here in Oz.

Yep we went to Tommy's for iced coffees last month and even then had to whip next door to the mini mart to gulp down a couple of pocaris as the iced c's just didn't quench the thirst enough.

I gave some to my nephews a couple of months ago, now they're hooked to. Seeing they play heaps of sport. They are relatively cheap over here in Oz too. Next time I go into the market I am going to try to order a box of them.

It's a real weird taste. Sort of like flat...dunno, flat something. But if freezing cold, it's divine...as it is out of my fridge...

Most supermarkets and chemist shops in Bali sell it in powder satchets. Much lighter to carry home and Aussie customs allow it in. G.

And here I'd been thinking all these years that you'd hung around at Sydney just to see us again.
Never seen you with a board in Bali since then Trace.

Pocari Sweat also comes in sachet form. You can add it to water and it tastes the same. When I travel to jakarta, which seems to be every 10 weeks, I buy Pocari Sweat in the sachet form, usually 10 or 20 at a time and bring them bak to OZ.

No probs for that pocari fix.

I took a can of it to work yesterday. I had a managers forum to attend and I had it on the desk. Everyone asked me what it was. A few said, there's no way they'd pick something like that up off a shelf. I gave them a taste and they all loved it.
