Posted on February 17, 2019 in Announcements

As if we need an excuse to enjoy our favorite tequila cocktail, February 22nd is National Margarita Day!

A margarita on the rocks can pack anywhere from 450 to 800 calories, but Sparkling Ice makes it easy to make great-tasting margarita with only a fraction of the calories (aka more room for chips and guac!).

½ part Cointreau

3 slices of Jalapeño pepper

2oz pomegranate juice

1oz lime juice

1oz simple syrup

Strain into glasses and top with Sparkling Ice Classic Lemonade, stir lightly to combine. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Sippin’ The Beet


1 ½ oz silver tequila

½ oz Agave

½ oz beet juice

1 oz lime juice

Salt for rimming the glass

Kiwi slice, for garnish

Sparkling Ice is all new

Posted on February 6, 2019 in 2019 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Sparkling Ice has a new formula, featuring naturally sourced colors and flavors, in addition to an updated logo and packaging design.  My son loves Sparkling Ice, and now he loves it more, with the naturally sourced colors, and flavors.  He says it tastes great!  My 21 year old, daughter, loves the taste as well.  They fight over who gets to drink the last bottle all the time.  I can’t keep Sparkling Ice in the house.  And, they love all the flavors, not one more than another.

Over the course of two years, Sparkling Ice conducted extensive marketing research and sensory testing with over 8000 consumers. This consumer driven project resulted in Sparkling Ice updating their flavorful, zero sugar sparkling water to now include colors from natural sources. With this new formulation, Sparkling Ice is proud to be one of the first brands to successfully transition to natural colors while maintaining the vibrant look and long shelf life that Sparkling Ice is known for.

You will love Sparkling Ice, whether you’ve had it before or not.  It tastes great.  My favorite flavor is the Sparkling Black Raspberry.  It’s delicious.  Jacob, and Sarah, will drink any of the flavors, as will I, but we each have a favorite.  And, you get 17 fluid ounces per bottle.  That’s a fantastic drink!

Sparkling Ice launched a new “Sparkling IceMaker” voice skill with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to provide consumers with Sparkling Ice cocktail and mocktail recipes to make in the comfort of their own home. Consumers can quickly engage with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant by sharing which Sparkling Ice flavor and spirit they currently have on hand to access a variety of different recipes on behalf of the brand.

October is National Apple Month

Posted on October 21, 2017 in 2017 Halloween Gift Guide Reviews

What better way to support Apple Month, than with a bunch of great Apple products.

Sparkling Ice Crisp Apple made my 6 year old, son, so happy.  He loved it.  Well, he loves apples, but he said this Ice was delicious.  “Tasted just like apples, Mommy.”  He’s loved Sparkling Ice for so many years, and now, with the Crisp Apple, he is thrilled.  Sparkling Ice is inexpensive, and found at your local Walmart.  And has Zero Calories, Zero Carbs, and is Gluten Free.

Welch’s Fruit Snacks also has an Apple Medley, that Jacob just loves.  This one is also loved by my 20 year old, who also loves the Sparkling Ice.  The flavors include:  Granny Smith Apple, Pear, Golden Delicious Apple, Red Delicious Apple, Apricot.

Munk Pack has Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, that I, personally, adore.  It’s so delicious.  I put it in a bowl, and heat it for 45 seconds, and presto, a perfect breakfast.

Other products, pictured above, that I haven’t tried:  Viki’s Granola (looks yummy), and T-fal’s Ingenious Apple Wedger (looks easy enough to use) can be purchased at the links highlighted.

You can find all of these products on Facebook, and Twitter.

Back To School Snacks for Lunch or Before Bed

Posted on August 20, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

Lunch Time Made Easy

The brands, that were sent to me, are all great.  I’ve never been so happy to receive a package, for my 6 year old son, as I was to receive this package.  School hasn’t quite started yet, but I know he loves these snacks now, so I’ll be picking them up, when we go to the grocery store.

Welch’s new Fruit Rolls went over very well, with Jacob.  He loves anything Welch’s so when I offered him a fruit roll, he immediately took it.  He said, “Mommy, this is so good”.  So, I will be putting one of these Fruit Rolls in his lunch every day.

Fruit is the first ingredient in these Fruit Rolls.  That’s a huge thing with us.  We want Jacob to eat healthy, being that he has a couple heart issues.


Go Organically has been a favorite of Jacob’s for a while.  These fruit snacks are delicious.  The best part, you can get a coupon from their site.  Your littles will love Go Organically, as much as my Jacob does.  He always asks for them, by name.

Details of Go Organically can be found on the right side of their page, here.  Including Gluten Free, GMO Free, and USDA Organic.

My 20 year old, daughter, loves The Little Kernel.  She will put it in baggies, and take it to class, at College, with her.  She says that way she’s not making noise opening the bag, and she can portion control.  So I put some in a baggie for Jacob, and he went nuts.  He loves The Little Kernel, just as much as his big sister.  I’ll be sending this in his lunch, too.

You can read “What’s Inside” The Little Kernel, here.

We also received some awesome drinks.

I LOVE Sparkling Ice, and now they have 8 oz cans.  This will be great to send in lunches.  Sarah said she can take it in her book bag, and open between classes.  Ice has been a favorite of ours for a while.  I just couldn’t drink one of those plastic containers though.  There’s so much in there.  These little portion sized Sparkling Ice are great.  The regular bottles have so many flavors, you will definitely find one you love.


For the first time, I got to try Brooklyn Organics.  It’s also a great drink.  It’s a craft Ginger Ale, and Jacob was just sick the other day.  We gave him Brooklyn Organics to sip, and he loved it.  He’s not big on Ginger Ale, but he did say it had a “super” taste to it.


Then, there’s Aqua Ball.  My daughter loves Ariel, and you can get the Disney Characters on the Aqua Ball.  She says it’s delicious, but she also likes the Princesses, so this is a 2 for 1 deal.

Aqua Ball naturally flavored water is the only zero-sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative children’s beverage around. Available in four flavors and featuring fan favorite Disney and Marvel characters, AquaBall is not only fun for kids, but also smart for parents.

Check out all of the products websites listed above.  You will love that packing lunch just got easier.

Strawberries, And More Strawberries

Posted on June 18, 2017 in kids Reviews

Strawberry Month

May was Strawberry Month.  And, we celebrated Strawberry Month with Sparkling Ice, and Welch’s Strawberry Fruit Snacks.

I LOVE Strawberries.  I don’t know about you, but this is the perfect time of the year to have them.  I even have my 6 year old, son, hooked on them.  He loves Welch’s Fruit Snacks, and Sparkling Ice; but being that there is Strawberry flavors, he loves them even more.  My daughter, age 20, has been downing the Sparkling Ice.  She loves the Strawberry Lemonade.  I, myself, love Sparkling Ice, as well; but I have not been able to get my hands on any.  The kids are drinking it too fast.  It’s that good.

Welch’s has great flavored Fruit Snacks, and more than just Strawberry, incase Strawberry isn’t your thing.  Check out the link, to see all the flavors available.

Welch’s® Fruit Snacks come in 10 mouthwatering varieties and a range of package options to fit your needs. You can count on the great taste and quality that can only be Welch’s®.

Sparkling Ice has been around for a while, but this is the first time that I’ve seen the Strawberry Lemonade.  My son says it’s yummy.  There are so many great flavors of Sparkling Ice, that you must try it.  They even have Strawberry Watermelon, Yummy!  The Strawbery Kiwi is delicious, too.  You really need to try some Sparkling Ice the next time you are out.

Luscious strawberry and sweet watermelon make quite the pair. In fact, we think they’re getting married.

Have the Perfect Picnic

Posted on May 13, 2017 in kids Reviews

Go On a Family Picnic Today

Picnic day was April 23, did you go on your picnic?  If not, take one soon.  You will love the fresh air, and the good foods I’m talking about in this post.  It’s inexpensive, and the person you plan it for, will love it.


Explore Cuisine is the perfect addition to any picnic.  The Bean Pasta is delicious, and it is quite filling, as well.  I love everything about it, and have even bought some, since my picnic (April 23).  The pasta is quite tasty, with a great texture.  Making you get filled on just a little.  It’s perfectly put in a container, and travels quite well.


Sparkling Ice is the perfect beverage, for your picnic.  My 5 year old loves it so much, we just bought another case last night.  His favorite is the Raspberry.  I love all the flavors, I’m not as picky as my five year old.  He is so infatuated with the Raspberry, that he won’t touch any other flavor.  My husband even takes a case to work, to have for his guys.  One bottle will go a long way.  It’s the perfect size, and inexpensive (I found at Walmart for $1 a bottle).


Go Organically Fruit Snacks are a great snack for a perfect picnic.  These fruit snacks are delicious, and loved by the kids I shared them with.  My 5 year old, and his friends couldn’t get enough of the Go Organically Fruit Snacks.  They always go over well.  My favorite is the tropical.  I even send these as a treat in my son’s lunch.  And, my 19 year old, daughter, loves them too.  She takes them to college, to eat when she needs a snack.


The Little Kernel Popcorn is another great snack.  We took this on our picnic, and it was gone in minutes.  Everyone loved this popcorn.  Great addition to any party, or picnic.  The flavors are so unique, and the popcorn tastes delicious.
