Brian: I was fortunate enough to have access to the PowerICE during one of our heat waves. I used it after several workouts of various lengths and intensity. Each flavor tasted great, not too sweet or tangy. They were easy to open and eat, always a bonus after an extremely tough workout. Easily supplanting my favorite post hot run snack of watermelon, the instant refreshment was awesome. I actually can think of no drawbacks to this product.
It’s hard for me to get enough fluids in after a long run. I can only drink so much water and with the weather heating up, it’s even more important to keep your fluids in check. I can’t believe I haven’t heard of PowerICE sooner, but they are my new favorite way to end a long run on a hot day. Basically, a frozen hydration treat, I’m so excited to discover these. I don’t like the taste of drinks with electrolytes, but when offered as a frozen concoction, they are quite tasty and refreshing. With an assortment of flavors including, Lime Kicker, Orange Blast, Grape Score and Raspberry Rip, these are like a treat. They are the perfect size to replenish electrolytes and a much better alternative for me, since those sugary/salty drinks make me gag. PowerICE are perfect for hot work outs, soccer games, daily doubles and sick kids. I used them to help keep a sick kiddo hydrated while he was running a fever. They kept him hydrated and cooled his sore throat.
These sell on their online store for $5.99 for a box of 6.
