It was a happy day when the nice delivery guy dropped these off at my door. Just in time for some beautiful warm weather. PowerICE is a company who makes frozen hydration bars and I am super happy review their product. They sent a generous amount that has allowed me to share the love and get some good feedback! Two big things that caught my eye about this product: they don’t have high fructose corn syrup or artificial preservatives. You can see the ingredients here.
Years ago I stopped buying these for my kids
because of the HFCS and dyes
and there was much sadness in my house.
So as you can imagine, I was really hoping these icy pops would be just as good and exciting as the ones that have been banned from my house. The kids were pretty pumped about trying them, so I packed them on ice, threw it all into my cooler bag and we took them with us on our hike.
This was really our first time to try them… and we all thought they were really yummy and refreshing. I left the cooler bag in the hot car for about an hour, then I took it out when we went down to the river. After that amount of time, they were melted some, but still very frozen and I was happy about that.
WE TRIED ALL THE FLAVORS
Pomegranate Raspberry Rip
My girl didn’t love the Pomegranate Raspberry so much but really liked the Grape and Orange, my little man was all over Orange Blast and Lime and my fave was Pomegranate Raspberry and Grape.
I shared PowerIce with my class after doing a great cardio/toning workout using Tye4® wearable resistance. Everyone really loved the PowerICE bars. Here are some of the things that were said:
“The texture is great, like sonic ice. Really good.”“… not so salty and more refreshing then Gatorade”“Doesn’t leave an after taste like products with artificial ingredients”
Thought that was great feedback and I
happen to agree.
I also put them to the test at the ball field. As you can see, I was hard at work reviewing this product. It was very difficult not to sneak into the cooler bag and help myself to a second one. I did think it nice of me to practice self control and share with the kids after their game.
Excuse me as I go off on a soap box for a moment:
Parents, if you have kids playing sports, teach them at an early age to be an intentional athlete. They can learn to give 100% on the field and off the field as well. This will develop character and life skills that will follow them into all areas of their life. As a parent, you have the opportunity to teach them how to fuel their body before the game and teach them what they need to do to repair after a game or practice. This is a fun experience for the kids. I’ve seen it first hand. This is a great way to empower our kids to take responsibility over their own health. Post game snacks are fun and exciting as the kids celebrate their game, but as parents we can choose healthier options to give them. These PowerICE bars were PERFECT for this b/c I knew they were getting some good stuff to replace electrolytes and they were excited to get a fun treat!
Win Win… Win.
To sum up this PowerICE review, I really like them and so does everyone else I shared them with. Bam.
