Where there's Prime Hydration on sale, crowds tend to follow.

Long queues from the break of dawn have become a regular sight outside shops and supermarkets, including Aldi, for the in-demand drink. In April, hundreds of customers were spotted outside Aldi stores across the UK to get their hands on slashed-price Prime Hydration energy drinks.

The drinks were restocked by the supermarket chain for £1.99 each following their debut last December which saw the drinks sold out within minutes. Aldi told customers that six flavours of the drink would be available in all stores nationwide but as it’s part of their Specialbuy promotion, and they added that once the drinks are gone 'they’re gone'.

Launched by internet celebrities Logan Paul and KSI in 2022, the popular drink was initially only sold in Asda, but huge demand led to shortages, which fuelled massive resale prices online and in other stores. In February, Sainsbury’s was forced to issue a warning asking people to stop contacting their customer service line for updates on stock after they were inundated with calls.

Wakey Wines in west Yorkshire went viral after charging over £100 for a can of Prime energy drink after importing the beverage from the US. The shop’s TikTok account was even temporarily banned in January.

However even more retailers are adding Prime Hydration to their stores - giving fans more opportunity to purchase the drink. Here is all you need to know:

Some customers were successful by trying more than one supermarket. Kaden Lucas, 18, woke up at 4.40am to re-stock his collection of the drink and successfully managed to get nine bottles from a store in West Surrey. He first headed to Asda at 5.30am this morning, bought three bottles and then went to Aldi where he got six bottles after queuing for an hour and a half.

Kaden said: "I queued with my mate and got there about an hour and a half before it opened. We were the first in the queue so the first to go straight in and there were about 20 people behind us.

"There’s been many times where I’ve been to Asda when I’ve woken up early and attempted to go when it opens at 6am and they’ve not restocked it."
