SPARQ Whiskey Rocks and Appetizer Plate Review and Giveaway



Summer has finally arrived. Children are out of school, Parks are full, Neighbors are barbecuing and the taste of fun is everywhere in sights. I love nothing more than to have a hot summer day, invite friends and family over for a pool party with lots of food and special drinks. When it is hotter than a boiling egg outside, (I live in Kansas you never know.) we like to have some nice, relaxing, ice cold drinks. This is where SPARQ comes in and truly makes a difference.

We had the opportunity to review two products from SPARQ the first being the whiskey rocks. The great thing about using the whiskey rocks is that unlike ice it will not dilute your drinks, the will hold their temperature for an hour or more outside of the freezer, they are also tasteless and odorless. I like to put this in my Vodka to keep it cool. I am a sipper so it keeps it good and cold until the last drop. Mr.K on the other hand loves to use them in his coffee. It keeps his coffee hot until he has time to drink it. They are awesome to use when having friends over and you want your drinks to stay ice cold while swimming, playing volleyball or even a good game of horseshoes. 

The second item we received to review is the Soapstone Thermal Appetizer Plate. I absolutely love this plate! It keeps my cheeses and veggies cold but also is great for putting hot cinnamon rolls and biscuits on for keeping them hot. I use this almost on a daily basis and it sits directly on my counter because I also love its looks.

A huge Thank you to SPARQ who has offered (1) of my readers 1 set of Whiskey Rocks and 1 appetizer plate.

    I thought it was great that they didn't want all that waste from their kitchen counter top business to end up in the landfills so they figured out a new product they could utilize it for and marketed it.
    I really like the Soapstone Thermal Appetizer Plate. With the rising cost of bread I started making homemade bread again because we are all big bread eaters. We actually eat a loaf with our dinner and the Appetizer Plate would be great to keep the bread warm on the table every night. Plus I love the look. It matches my counter top so I would keep it out and handy to use every day. Thanks for sharing this really cool review and giveaway~!
