PowerICE Review

From time to time I get requests to review products on my blog and my typical answer is "no thanks" or "sorry, that's not my thing" but when the nice folks at PowerICE asked me to review their frozen hydration bars I said YES! I was drawn to the fact that they're a Colorado-based company and I'm a sucker for anything resembling a popsicle. 

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!
