PowerICE is a sport hydration bar that you freeze and eat. Think pop-ice for people who work out. It's full of electrolytes and can be eaten pre-workout, during, or post-workout. PowerICE sent me a box of Orange Blast and Lime Kicker and Pomegranate-Raspberry Rip to try.
The one thing I didn't anticipate was having to share them with my husband and son.
Here's what John had to say:
"PowerICE bars were a great alternative to drinking a big glass of water post-run. They taste great, like a frozen sport drink but without being overly sweet. Eating something frozen causes you to slow down a little instead of just chugging a post-run drink. It helped me with the cool down effect."
Will, my sorta-picky seventeen year old loved them and ate more than his fair share! He said they were "a great way to refuel and cool down after running."
I thought they tasted great. I'm not a fan of all the ingredients in most sports drinks so PowerICE was a pleasant surprise. The bars were light and filling without being syrupy sweet and without the long list of unpronounceable ingredients (see full ingredient list here). And like I said, I'm a sucker for anything resembling a popsicle. Lime Kicker was my favorite flavor.
After trying PowerICE bars I've decided they're going to be my new go-to for post-workout hydration!
Now, if I could just find a way to keep them frozen and carry them with me when I hike this summer. Can you even imagine how great they would taste at the top of a 14er?
Thank you, PowerICE for letting us try your product. The LifeAt7000Feet family members are fans!
