Power Ice Product Review

Although PowerICE did send me samples to try in exchange for my review all opinions are my own, but pfft y'all already knew that ;)

I'm not sure about you but I used to LOATHE running on the treadmill. Unfortunately, the entire country is in a winter wonderland and most are reduced to running on a human-hamster-wheel like myself. It became a necessary addition to continue my Glass Slipper Challenge preparations. What I have noticed about my treadmill is that I can place everything I need right in front of me (slightly obsessive, yes) When I laid out everything for my run I had a nice little flashback to Princess Half Marathon weekend. The beautiful towel on the treadmill was a great swag snag by my Best Running Friend Kristy! Thank again Kristy!! It's so fabulous!

So had everything I needed to in order to have a successful run. My iPad, a water bottle and my fabulous Princess towel, as well as my running coach if you can see him in the bottom left corner. Everything was there for me, except for my secret weapon.

This being my first run back after vacation I planned on taking it easy 3-4 miles tops. I made sure to hydrate properly in my Glass Slipper Challenge Sweaty Band.

I stopped around 3.5 miles. One of the downsides to running on my treadmill is that it gets so hot that I constantly sweat. It feels like it's to the point of dehydrating myself badly, no matter how much water I drink. I'm sure you can see in the picture how red I am because of the energy being exerted haha. At least no one can say I wasn't working hard.

Remember that 'secret weapon' I mentioned before. Well this is it. PowerICE.

When you are done with your run, you'll feel like this.

But knowing you have PowerICE in your freezer, makes you feel like this.

There are two flavors of PowerICE. One is Orange Blast and the other is Lime Kicker. Both are totally delicious, I am not in love with one over the other, it'd be like choosing a favorite child...yeah I went there. Power Ice will come to you unfrozen and all you need to do is toss it in your freezer before your run, give yourself time though. 

The first thing you will notice about PowerICE is that it's just like your favorite ICE Pops you had as a kid, BUT BETTER. It's like the 'Ade's' out there had a baby with those ICE Pops. The flavor is out of this world, it's not watered down at all. The point of PowerICE is that is a different way to get your electrolytes after a work out, with an added benefit. Now although I choose it for AFTER you can use it before or during your workout.

I have found nothing else cools me down like PowerICE. Obviously as you can see I get red and heat up very fast when I am working out. This product brings my body temperature down to a comfortable level in record time AND it tastes better than anything else. 

And if you are ready for even more pluses for this product... 
-It's only 30 calories per bar
-It's Gluten free
-100% of your Daily Vitamin C in each bar
-No caffeine 

Ace was wondering why I wasn't sharing...but to be honest, you can't share something this tasty. Sorry babe.


  1. I got some of these in a Stridebox this summer, they are delicious! My company carries a similar product with lots more flavors too. Love me some frozen electrolytes!

    1. Aren't they amazing!

      What company is that!?!?

  2. I wonder if you could make these by freezing Gatorade in the shape of Popsicles?

  3. Awesome review - sounds like a great product!

    1. I recommend it 100%, they are so incredibly tasty!
