Water water water; often times, we're told that it's healthy and that we should drink it in abundance for hydration purposes. However, not only do people never seem to talk about sparkling water outside of LaCroix, but I find most water boring and lacking in flavor (with the only discernable flavor being "carbonated"), but with the help of Sparkling Ice, partaking in "being healthy" isn't so boring anymore with their new look.

What's the deal?

In honor of the company's transition to naturally sourced colors and flavors, Sparkling Ice has released a new look to the company's products. The actual product that Sparkling Ice produces is flavored sparkling water, which has absolutely no sugar to it and now has not artificial dyes, so now you don't have to worry about processed colors dyes entering your digestive system. The transition from artificial to natural doesn't impact the product's look and long shelf life that the company's known for, which doesn't really matter, but is worth noting.  

Sparkling Ice first launched 26 years ago and just rolled out a new "Integrated Campaign" to support the new look and culture of the company. You ind find more information and posts of the campaign by searching up the hashtags #SparklingIceLife, #NATRLLY, and #GetFizzy on social media... because who doesn't love a good social media campaign, amirite?  

To accompany the campaign, Sparkling Ice now has a "Sparkling IceMaker" that's essentially a voice skill made in conjunction with Google's Assistant and Amazon's popular Alexa. This has been developed to provide consumers with a cocktail and cocktail recipe from Sparkling Ice. The drink can be made at home, which is great since going out's a pain in this cold weather that has me questioning spring's presence. In order to use said feature, just let your assistant know which Sparkling Ice flavor(s) and spirit(s) are in stock at home, and said recipes will be spewed out at your convenience.

What else is there to know?

Sparkling Ice's new formula is available in retail locations nationwide and consists of no sugar, sparkling water, real fruit flavor, vitamins and antioxidants. Flavors include Black Raspberry, Orange Mango, Pink Grapefruit (aka the flavor that my mom swears by), Kiwi Strawberry (another flavor that my mom swears by), Coconut Pineapple, Pomegranate Blueberry, Peach Nectarine, Lemon Lime, Crisp Apple, Classic Lemonade (my personal favorite), Strawberry Lemonade, Cherry Limeade, Strawberry Watermelon, Black Cherry, Grape Raspberry, and Ginger Lime. In terms of pricing, each bottle starts at $1.19 and flavors can be located here. All of the bottles are 17 ounces, which is more than the standard 12 ounce LaCroix can.

Sparkling Ice holds a special place in my life and in my local Walgreens that never seems to have my flavor of choice in stock and its new look is just the cherry on top. Grab a bottle to keep hydrated!
