Having a freezer pop on a hot summers day is a nostalgic memory that most people have. The frozen flavored sugar water is a great treat after spending the day in the hot sun to cool down. They usually come in flavors like grape, blue raspberry, cherry, lemon, etc.
Now the summer freezer pop has become not only a fun childhood memory, but a piece of survival for adult summer fun. The newest and most popular food trend for the summer of 2019 is the Pedialyte freezer pop. Yes, that is a freezer pop full of Pedialyte, the electrolyte solution primarily marketed to children.
According to the official product description,”Pedialyte Freezer Pops are an advanced hydration solution specially formulated with the optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes needed to help replenish vital fluids and minerals, which when lost, can lead to dehydration.” So say goodbye to hangovers!
Pedialyte has lots of sodium and potassium and was created to help dehydrated children recover from illness. However, this solution has popped up in pop culture television shows and has been medically proven to include less sugar and calories than sports drinks like Gatorade. In fact, one 33.8-ounce container of Pedialyte has 1,012mg of Sodium and 768mg of Potassium. It also has 100 calories and 24g of carbohydrates.
These Pedialyte freezer pops are marketed as electrolyte replacement options and come in flavors like grape, blue raspberry, cherry, and orange. When consuming alcohol, your electrolytes become deplated quickly and you get dehydrated. Electrolytes help you retain more water, so you can rehydrate faster and recover. So it makes sense that Pedialyte is a good thing to consume to recover from a hangover.
Right now, Pedialyte freezer pops are available to purchase on Amazon.com, in either packs of two or three and they have a retail price of $19.99. Each box has at least sixteen freezer pops in the box as well, in a variety of different colors and flavors.
