You can finally stop pretending that bottle of Pedialyte is for the child in your life.

Have you ever slid into Walgreen's on a Sunday with huge shades on to grab a bottle of Pedialyte for your hangover? Well, the makers of Pedialyte have embraced their role as hangover saviors with new Sparkling Rush Powder Packs.

Pedialyte describes the packets as "a fizzy way to quickly replenish fluids and electrolytes lost to dehydration."


The flavors are grape and cherry, but more importantly, each pack is full of potassium, sodium, chloride, and sugar—basically all the things your body needs after a night of pounding too many vodka cranberrys. This dreamy product couldn't have come at a better time, as the holidays are known as a time where we tend to overindulge in the adult beverage category. (NYE, anyone?)

The packets don't take much effort because all you need to do is pour them into cold water. At that point, you have a flavored hangover cure, perfectly balanced with electrolytes and sugar.

It's being reported that the packets are back ordered in some places online, but you may have luck in your local grocery store or at other online retailers.
