Cascade Ice Sparkling Water Sponsor Spotlight Review


 
You are gonna love this new company called Cascade Ice Sparkling Water! They have so many flavors to choose from you won't know which one to pick first or even second! We were very fortunate to get to try 5 different flavors:

1. Blueberry Watermelon
2. Strawberry Lemonade
3. Coconut
4. Peach Mango
5. Orange Mango

I will tell you right off that Mike's favorite was the Blueberry Watermelon. Not that he is so crazy about Blueberries but he is crazy about Watermelon! Evidently, it was enough to overtake the Blueberry because he loved it! I took a small sip and the drink was really good, I just don't do watermelon anything! Never have liked any of the melons for that matter so it's not just watermelon. I know it is good for me and so is cantelope but I just can't stomach either one of them. Then came the really bad news for me: loaded in potassium!!! I was heartsick. So, Mike got all the pleasure while I watched. Most of you know I can't drink potassium because it messes with my chronic bladder condition. I don't know why all these vitamin, sports drinks, etc. have to have so much potassium in them, it is killing me. Anyway, so for this adventure, Mike was the man in the driving seat and he loved it!

There are three categories that the Cascade Sparkling Waters are divided up into and they are Sparkling Cocktail Mixers, Zero Calorie Organic Sparkling Water and Zero Calorie Sparkling Water. What a mouthful that was! All three categories are Sodium Free, Caffeine Free and Gluten Free. But the best part is that there are 31 flavors to choose from! Are you kidding me? No! Have you ever had that many flavors to choose from before? Wow, you should see some of the names, well like: McIntosh Apple, Acai Pomegrante Dragonfruit, Cherry Guava Blueberry, Organic Mixed Berry and Mojito
Cocktail Mixer to name a few. You will just have to check it all out for yourself because there are way too many to talk about.

The one that I liked the best if I had been able to drink it was the Peach Mango. It was one of the best zero calorie drinks I have had that did not leave an awful tasted in my mouth, you know, that sacchrine awful taste. I only got to take 2 quick sips so it would not be enough to set my bladder off, but I can tell you that if you like peaches and mangoes, this is gonna be your drink!

Mike really liked the Strawberry Lemonade also so that was his second choice and unfortunately, Mike is not a coconut fan. I felt bad that the drink would just sit there so I gave it to friend and neighbor to test. She absolutely loved it! She said if you like coconut cake, then you will want this one. She said it did not leave that bad after taste and was actually pretty good to drink by itself or mixed with some of the others. She said she would have tried to pair it with the Mango drinks to see what happened but I am not as brave as she is.

That left us with the Orange Mango. Thank goodness Mike eats oranges like crazy, especially in the winter around Christmas and then after that. The Mangoes give this Orange drink a tropical like flavor so it cuts the edge off a little of the orange so it's not too orange tasting. I had to take everyone's word on this one for sure because Oranges are definitely a no-no with all of that citric acid. I know we need it for our bodies but mine just won't cooperate so I am missing out on all the good things that oranges do for us.

 
Oh, you can get the variety packs also if you dont' want to get stuck with just one flavor all the time and they even have an Ultra Pure Water to choose from also for those who just like Sparkling Water without the taste. The cases come with 12 bottles and the price is pretty reasonable at $17.00 a case. You can check out all the options on their E-store as far as flavors and other products they have that can be mixed. Unfortunately, they cannot ship to Alaska or Hawaii. You can also use their Store Locator to see if your area sells it in any of the grocery or convenience stores.

 
You can also go to their recipe section and make all kinds of nifty things like this Tropical Rum Cocktail. You can even leave them some feedback comments on what you think about their drinks or offer some new recipes or even maybe some new flavors, who knows?
