caffeine pills are so much more portable.

This is cheaper, more healthy, quite tasty, and-more compact as well:

Various formulations and other similar brands are available elsewhere. The vast majority of soda drinks are liquid garbage.

I avoid caffeine sodas because I have to go easy on the caffeine.

I'll look into it as an alternative.

What about the Zevia I mentioned on Page 2?

Definitely sounds like a "First World" survival problem.

Indeed. Those of us living high on the hog will fall the hardest when the delivery trucks stop coming, and money becomes worthless. That's why I'm making a parachute.

Zevia? Not familiar with the prodect,although it sounds like it mike contain stevia. Are there any electrolytes listed on the product label. That would be critical.

Forced to imbibe water with your meal rather than tea? Horrors! The naked brutality of it all. Be thankful you have H2O. The real problems start when you run out of water (experience speaking).

electrolyte tablets would be significantly better than sweetened water, aka Zevia. and considerably less bulky and expensive

We have Emergen-C at home. I drink it whenever I feel I'm about to come down with something.
