The hugely popular drink is available to buy in Aldi, Asda, Sainsbury’s and Spar stores nationwide - and there’s even an app that can track stock levels

Stocks of energy drink Prime Hydration, which has been causing a stir among shoppers in the UK and US for months, is now available to buy from a third supermarket giant, and will soon be on the shelves of a fourth big name supermarket. Stock levels of highly sought after drink can now also be tracked online as shoppers continue to scramble to get their hands on it..

The drink, which is available to buy online and in major supermarkets in the UK, has been so popular with shoppers that fans are struggling to bag themselves a bottle - despite queuing from the early hours to try to get one. Prime hydration drink has been created by two Youtube stars Logan Paul and KSI, who were former boxing rivals but have now become business partners, and it’s become an internet sensation.

The drink has also been such a hit in the US that stocks on the official Prime hydration drink website sold out within hours with it being launched. So, it’s no surprise that the drink has also sold out minutes after being released in UK stores too. But, what exactly is the drink, where can you buy it in the UK, and how can you access the stock checker app for it? Here’s what you need to know.

What is Prime hydration drink?

Prime hydration is a sports energy drink. When they launched the drink, Logan Paul and KSI said they were aiming to “rival some of the biggest companies on Earth” with their new drink, including “Pepsi, Coke, Gatorade, and Powerade.” The YouTubers revealed that their biggest goals for their drink are taste and hydration. Paul said that the drink is made up of 10% coconut water.

Where is Prime hydration drink available to buy in the UK?

The Prime hydration drink is now available to buy in three major UK supermarkets - Asda, Aldi and Sainsbury’s. It’s also available to buy in some Spar stores. Fans of the drink have been able to buy it at Asda since the summer, but it has been available to buy in Aldi since Thursday 29 December. Some Spar stores have also been stocking the highly sought after drink since the beginning of 2023.

The Daily Record reports that from Tuesday (21 February) fans will be able to buy the drink from Sainsbury’s shops. It is not confirmed which Sainsbury’s stores will stock Prime, however, and customers are advised to check their local store for bottles. Another supermarket giant, Morrisons, has also confirmed they will sell the drink in future, according to The Grocer, but no further information such as a date has been revealed.

Customers can, however, now grab one bottle of each flavour while stocks last, Aldi said, and the drink is priced at £1.99 per bottle.

After a request from Aldi to ‘meet you there’, KSI responded: “Na I can’t, I’m training but glad there’s other options besides just Asda now.”

Asda meanwhile sell the drink for £2 per bottle, while Spar have been accussed by some of making profit out of the success of the drink by allegedly selling some bottles for up to £18 per bottle.

In response to the complaints on Twitter, Spar said: “We are working closely with our network of Spar UK owned stores and independent retailers to ensure fans can get their hands on Prime drinks and investigating reports of increased pricing. Customers are advised to contact their local stores for more info on stock.”

Logan Paul and KSI thrilled their fans in spring 2022 by announcing that they would be collaborating to release the Prime hydration drink on 4 January. Initially, Prime hydration drink was available only in the USA, however, making it was not possible to buy it in other countries like the UK, Australia, and India.

Back in January, the pair had teased fans on Twitter that the drink would launch in February in the UK. That never happened, however. In March, they once again took to Twitter. Logan Paul retweeted a tweet from KSI who had tweeted “Why isn’t it in the U.K. yet?!?!?” In his response, he said: “It MAY come sooner than you think…”, leading fans to think the capitalisation was a hint that the drink would be released in the UK in May.

Then, on 11 May, the duo excited their fans again by finally making the official announcement that the drink is now available to buy in the UK. Writing on the official Drink Prime Twitter account, they wrote “The wait it over. DrinkPrime.UK.”

In his most recent video, uploaded on his official Youtube channel on 10 May, KSI revealed that Prime drink will be available in UK online stores initially, and then in UK shops. He said: “I am actually sick of saying this; Prime’s coming. It’s coming in the UK. So, You can get in online in the UK, and soon you’ll be able to get in in stores.” According to Logan Paul, 50,000 bottles were sold out within five minutes of being launched online.

The duo then declared in June that drink is available to buy in Asda stores.

Taking to their official Twitter account again on Saturday 18 June they wrote “OUR FIRST UK RETAILER! Thank you for showing up for us this week & thank you @asda for the support. Shop all six delicious flavours at ALL locations within the next week or so!”

How can I check stocks of Prime hydration drink in my local UK store?

The Prime Tracker UK app shows branches of Asda, Aldi and Spar where the drink is in stock. It says it will tell users of changes within 30 seconds of stock updates.

According to the description on the Apple App Store, a team monitors and contacts the three retailers to create an accurate database of where Prime is stocked. It also sources information from a Discord server with other 12,000 users and regularly post updates on its Twitter page. The app costs 89p to buy.

What flavours of Prime hydration drink are available?

Paul and KSI have celebrated the launch of Prime hydration drink in the UK with a new flavour, Ice Pop. Paul, who is from America, tweeted: “Introducing Ice Pop! @PrimeHydrate Our new delicious flavor, just in time for the Summer. @KSI and I are proud & humbled to announce that Prime is officially the fastest-growing hydration drink in America, represented by the ICE POP colors — red, white, and blue.”

KSI, who is British, responded with a tweet of his own.

He said: “Erm no, the colours are representing the United Kingdom. In fact, because we took so long to get PRIME to the U.K., we should get the flavour first before the US.”

Other flavours which are available are blue raspberry, tropical punch, lemon lime, grape and orange.

How much does Prime hydration drink cost?

It appears that the Prime hydration drink is being sold in packs of 12 on the official website for the drink. The packs are sold according to flavour. A pack of 12 costs £24.99, meaning each bottle costs around £2.08. Individual bottles are also being sold on the Asda Groceries website for £2 each.
