Battle of the Berries

by Cascade Ice on May 19, 2016

     BoB

Big news, Cascade Ice fans! We’re having a contest to see which berry-flavored beverage you love best! Each day, a new pair of contestants will go head-to-head, but only one beloved berry will come out on top. Voting rounds will repeat each day until the final showdown where the most popular berry flavor will be crowned champion!

Competing in this year’s Battle of the Berries smack down: 

·         Cranberry Pomegranate
A stern contender among the group, packing a powerful 1-2 punch of flavor
with tart cranberry and sweet, sweet pomegranate.
·         Strawberry Orange Mango
A true triple threat, don’t discount the electrifying flavors of super-strawberry,
out-of-this-world orange, and marvelous-mango.
·         Raspberry Lemonade
This summertime classic is not to be messed with.
Definitely a crowd favorite, but will it stand up to the fierce competition?
·         Strawberry Banana 
       Not many flavors work better than the enticing sweetness of
strawberry and the rich deliciousness of banana. Watch you backs, contestants!
·         Pomegranate Berry
What better to boost pomegranate’s power than the juicy flavors of
earth’s candy: berries! A tempting treat, and our dark horse pick of the pack.
·         Strawberry Guava
Intensely tropical and irresistibly sweet, this strawberry/guava
team promises to put up an all-or-nothing fight for flavor.
·         Blueberry Watermelon
The David and Goliath of this competition, but this time, they’re fighting together!
With mighty flavor comes mighty responsibility.
·         Strawberry Lemonade
Our final contender reminds us of simpler times, picking fruit and sipping lemonade,
but this underrated berry hopeful is pulling no punches… if you can even see them coming.

Ditch the Water Bottle! Creative Ways to Stay Hydrated this Summer

by Cascade Ice on May 5, 2016

When we hear the word summer, we’re quick to associate it with some of our favorite things: diving into pools, the smell of a freshly-made mimosa, and the sound of crickets on warm evenings. On that same note, we can’t help but also associate the word ‘summer’ with things like mosquito bites and practically hopping into freezers while grocery shopping to escape the heat. Here are some of our favorite and tasty methods of hydration that keep us happy and healthy.
___
Fruity Ice Cubes
Yes, that’s right: fruity ice cubes. The recipe we found suggested adding them to regular water, but we think they pair even better with Cascade Ice Sparkling Water.
fc-2
Pink Cubes: Juiced watermelon, muddled raspberries, a touch of mint and Cascade Ice Blueberry Watermelon
Clear Cubes: Small basil sprouts, 1 lemon juiced and Cascade Ice Strawberry Lemonade
Purple Cubes: Softened blueberries (we soaked them in water for 3 hours) pomegranate seeds, kiwi, and Cascade Ice Coconut
 ___  
Coconut Water
n-COCONUT-WATER-628x314
Studies have shown that compared to regular water and sports beverages, coconut water is just as comparable in terms of hydration, but with significantly fewer side-effects while running around in the heat of the day. We like to mix in our flavored waters for taste! Our favorites to add include:
·         Cascade Ice Strawberry Banana
·         Cascade Ice Pink Grapefruit
·         Cascade Ice Coconut Pineapple
___
Super-Food Smoothies

Fruits like watermelon, strawberries, peaches, and cantaloupe & vegetables like cucumber, celery, and zucchini contain extremely high amounts of water – which is where most of the nutrients are stored. To reap the benefits of these water-rich foods, keep them raw and blend them into smoothies with Cascade Ice Lemonade for a refreshing beverage to beat the heat!

If you try our recipes, feel free to let us know what you thought or post a picture of it to our Facebook page!

What Exactly is USDA Certified Organic?

Here at Cascade Ice we’re very proud to have the stamp of ‘USDA Certified’ on our Cascade Ice Organic flavors. But other than a fancy stamp, what does it mean for you?

To put it quite simply, USDA Certified reflects organic standards and is a labeling term that indicates that our beverages have been produced through approved methods. The organic standards describe the specific requirements that must be verified by a USDA-accredited certifying agent before products can be labeled USDA organic.

Our organic operations demonstrate that we are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved substances in our Cascade Ice Organic flavors. There’s no additives, synthetics, GMOs or dyes. Cascade Ice Organic flavors were made for you to enjoy to the fullest and live an organic lifestyle!
