Why do they have to make the glucola drink so gross?

I have to take the test today, and I'm not looking forward to the sicky sweet stuff(this is baby #2, I remember it from last time..). Anyone else have to drink the orange drink recently?

  • Haha, I know WHY I have to drink it..I just don't know why it has to be so gross. Why can't they just put it in a capsul, or tablet or something? It tastes like super sweet flat orange soda. Eww.

  • It's just the insane amount of sugar in the drink.

  • It's just a really concentrated amount of glucose....no real way to make that taste good. It's the only good thing about being a type 2 diabetic, I don't have to take that drink to see if I have what I already know I have, lol.

  • I know right! Yuck. I'm not even a fan of orange soda so I have to choke it down and try to keep it down. Wish it came with other flavors or something. Even a little carbonation would be nice =P

  • Ours is A Fruit Punch drink.
    They can't add too many addatives or flavorings to the drink. If they did it may throw off the results of the test from the different ingredients. They have to keep it as close to sugar water as they can to get an accurate test.
