I had the watermelon flavor, it was yummier than I thought it would be! Would buy it again. Not too much notice in the hydration benefits, but I'd buy it just as a yummy flavored drink.

I got the lemon lime flavor and enjoyed it! It tasted like a healthier Gatorade. I don't usually love these kind of drinks but I liked Barcode.
My biggest problem with Barcode is that it wasn't clear on the packaging that it contained adaptogens. I don't particularly mind that but I do think it would have been helpful to know vs. starting to drink it and seeing it on the packaging. Obviously there's not a lot of clarity on those ingredients but I would have liked to know.
I absolutely love this drink! The branding is genius, but it tastes SO GOOD! Usually adaptogen-powered drinks don't always taste the best but I love this drink. Reminds me a lot of Body Armor if you've had that!
Thought this might be gimmicky but no, it's the real deal. Tastes fresh/juicy & is very hydrating. It was developed by a former NBA trainer who fed this recipe to his players & I can see why - it tastes amazing and is way healthier than Gatorade!
I am obsessed. From flavor to the AR of the bottle to the community they are building, Barcode is an example of a brand who is truly innovative and rebuilding a niche and following their own playbook. I love the watermelon. It tastes like a jolly rancher without all the unnecessary sugar.
I would just love to see this everywhere and can't wait for more flavors.
If you have a watermelon flavor you win in my book. This drink was really tasty! I felt well hydrated after drinking it, plus it's much healthier than a lot of drinks in that category. I'll be getting more for a post workout (or hungover) drink!
More flavors please! I'd love a berry one.
