When Xander was little back in 2007-2008, I remember seeing all those "cool moms" who had their kids drinking water out of a bottle that had it's own filter, and I felt like a failure when my son was drinking his apple juice from a sippy cup.
Was he drinking too much juice? Am I giving him too much sugar? Does he get enough water?
All things that made *me* at that time feel like a bad mom, but I remember thinking I can't afford those water filter bottles, but how nice it would be to be able to stop at a drinking fountain and have pure clean water any time for him.
Then, a couple of weeks ago, I came across the site Cool Gear Inc. and noticed they had all kids of cool--haha--no pun intended, stuff for kids and parents.
This was the first thing that caught my eye.
WOW! Not only could I be the *cool mom* but I could also keep the water cold while keeping it pure and clean.
When the bottle came in the mail both Xander and Riley (and myself) couldn't wait to get the "stick" part into the freezer so we could start enjoying some cold water.
After about 2 hours in the freezer, we pulled it out and stuck it back in the bottle and filled the bottle with tap water.
Riley had the first drink and squealed "it's cold!" then Xander tried and his reaction was "it tastes like it comes out of those bottles you get at the gas station!"
When I tried it, they were both spot on. It was cold, and it tasted great.
The best part is the price. $12.99!
I can actually afford to buy one for everyone in the family!
The 32 oz EZ Freeze Pure also comes in smaller (24 oz) and larger (64 oz) sizes.
You can also purchase replacement filters for the EZ freeze on their website.
Xander wanted me to tell everyone he thinks this bottle is the coolest
and Riley likes this
It keeps milk cold by using a gel filled freezer container at the bottom, and it has a snap in/off spoon!
Another product that I am hoping to review someday is this
Casey and I are both starting a weight loss plan in 2013 and I think this would make taking salads with me when I go out SO much easier, and at only $11.99 it's definitely in my price range!
Disclosure: I was given an Ez Freeze Pure Water bottle to help with my review. All opinions are 100% mine.
