What Color is This?

I just though this would be a fun little subjective experiment. What color is the original lemon/ lime Gatorade?

From working concession stands and stuff, I realized that people see this color very differently. I would be asked for the ‘yellow’ Gatorade and the ‘green’ Gatorade both meaning the same thing. So what color is it, yellow or green? I see it as green.


I think it’s more of a green-yellow

Yea. Thats yellow green. Its not that people see it as yellow or green exclusively…they just arent gonna get all “crayola” while in line ordering…

I’m seeing kind of a brick red here…

Definitely chartreuse.

Pat thought he was opening a bottle of Gatorade, but it ended up being a can of worms.

Does it taste nice? We dont get it here. I imagine its like powerade or something?

It is the color H.P. Lovecraft was trying to describe in “The Colour Out of Space”.

Yellow-green was the first thought that came to mind, and I intentionally thought of the color before reading your OP.





And on that day, not a serious answer was given.

The human eye is able to detect green more so than other colors so its expected that there would be many more shades viable, meaning more interpretations by individuals.

I’d say it’s chartreuse, although if ordering it, I’d ask for the flavor “green”

Has anyone had Limon Pepino Gatorade aka lime cucumber? Best flavor ever.

I remember about 15 years ago, Gatorade had an Ice Tea with Lemon flavor that was nasty. I also thought their Frost flavors were good, but that Frost Alpine Snow, which was opaque white, tasted like Pine Sol.
