Gatorade thirst quencher is a brand of sports drink currently manufactured
by PepsiCo that is distributed in over 80 countries. It was first developed
in 1965 by researchers at the University of Florida, to replenish the
combination of water, carbohydrates, and electrolytes the school’s
athletes lost while sweating during rigorous competitions. The name 
was derived from nickname of the university’s athletic teams, the
“Gators”, The drink was originally produced and marketed by Stokely-
Van Camp.
