These ice pops are being called the ultimate 'hangover cure' this summer
Remember the simple childhood joy of an ice pop on a hot summer day? Now, what if I told you that could cure the worst Sunday morning hangover you've ever had?
Pedialyte is selling freezer pops that pack a punch to cure your dehydration. With flavors like grape, blue raspberry, cherry, and orange, these treats are for both kids (as long as they're older than one) and adults who miss this childhood snack... and want to wake up without feeling like death.
Pedialyte restores fluid and minerals in the body when water just isn't enough to cure mild or moderate dehydration. According to their website:
"Pedialyte has the electrolytes sodium, potassium, and chloride to help you feel better fast and replenish the electrolytes you lose when dehydration occurs."
Electrolytes are minerals that work in your body to balance its fluids and pH levels. Nixing dehydration means relieving symptoms like headaches, dizziness, tiredness, and general crankiness. Pedialyte's website also reads:
"Pedialyte Freezer Pops can help prevent dehydration caused by vomiting, diarrhea, exercise, travel, and heat exhaustion."
Your sick kids will love this treat that makes them feel better too - and so will you, when you wake up after a long night out. Because although these pops help with dehydration from the stomach flu and exercise, many people claim they can also help with the after-effects of alcohol.
They come in 16 pops per pack at $4.99 per box. You can buy them on Amazon or at stores that carry Pedialyte products. The serving size is two pops, so don't feel like you have to hold back; Pedialyte's website says you can have up to 32 freezer pops per day (although that would be one hell of a hangover!)
These packs come as a liquid, so do be sure to freeze them right away so you can have them ready-to-go when needed, whether that's a night after heavy drinking or an afternoon in the sun.
