I’ve noticed a lot of backlash lately about soda and other sugary drinks. I have to admit, I never gave much thought to drinking them, as I only had one once and awhile. Then, I gave up my coffee addiction and ended up replacing it with a soda one, just to get the same buzz. Unfortunately, coffee has more caffeine per cup than soda, so, I was chugging back numerous carbonated drinks in a day just to get that awake feeling. And my munchkin soon caught onto my habit and now begs for some “tickle juice” whenever one is in my hand. I’ve been trying all sorts of alternatives, and thus, cutting back on my caffeine, but, nothing just tastes ‘right’. I know something has to change and I’ve found the perfect drink to help me bridge the gap between delicious and bubbly!
Sparkling ICE by the Talking Rain Company is a line of sparkling water drinks just filled with goodness. Each flavor is packed full of B-vitamins, Vitamin D, and antioxidants thanks to caffeine-free Green Tea Extract. The B-vitamins help your body absorb energy from food, and, may help your balance your appetite, promote good vision, healthy skin, and a healthy nervous system. Vitamin D is a key contributor to bone strength. And, to top it all off, Sparkling ICE is sweetened with Splenda, making it a caffeine free, zero calorie, gluten free indulgence not loaded with sugar! It’s a drink I don’t mind giving Sonshine and telling him an innocent white lie about!
We were able to try four out of the eight current flavors of Sparkling ICE. All of which were delicious, satisfying, and refreshing. The Orange Mango has an orange taste with a sweet mango undertone. The two flavors compliment each other without overpowering the other. The Lemon Lime was one of my favorites. It doesn’t taste like your average lemon-lime based drink. It’s sweet with a nice hint of tartness, allowing it to outshine any type of soda out there! Although all the drinks are great, I also really loved the Black Raspberry flavor. I felt decadent while sipping on this full flavored sparkling spring water. It was sweet and tart, like when you pluck that perfect raspberry that’s been basking in the summer sun. The flavor I was surprised Sonshine enjoyed was Pink Grapefruit. It wasn’t tart like a real grapefruit, but had an appealing sweet tartness to it. Don’t be thrown off by the flavor, it’s worth a try!
I cannot wait to get to my local grocer to buy the other four flavors! Sparkling ICE has only the best in mind for it’s drinkers. You’ll be able to kick your bad soda habit, while not missing out on any carbonated goodness! You can also find recipes for popsicles to pound cake and, the best part of us adults, the website offers a variety of cocktails using your favorite Sparkling ICE flavor!
