The Perfect Family Gathering With Sparking Ice® & S’Mores
You know what we have at almost every Summer family gathering?! That’s right, we have Sparking Ice®! If you’re interested in trying some, click on the button below. And for dessert, our go-to is s’mores. I love starting a bonfire when the sun goes down and roasting some marshmallows whenever we go out to the suburbs. Living in the city, a bonfire is almost impossible so I purchased a portable s’mores heater. That’s how dedicated we are to having s’mores haha.
Benefits of Jewel-Osco
We always do most of our grocery shopping at Jewel-Osco. There are several stores close to where we live in Chicago, and they’re in almost every Chicago suburb. They have everything we need, so it’s pretty much a one-stop shop for us. Hence, why we do most of our grocery shopping at Jewel-Osco. Plus, their employees are always so helpful and kind, especially the ones behind the meat & seafood counter!
What’s cool is that in the Jewel-Osco app they offer weekly deals and coupons. If you have specific items in mind, just type it in the search bar. If there is a promotion going on with that item, it will pop up in the app. Or you can also search deals based on category, too
What Is Sparking Ice®?
Do you know what Sparking Ice® drinks are? They’re naturally flavored sparkling water, and they have at least 18 different flavors. Everyone in my family has a favorite flavor, so we always make sure we have a variety of flavors at all family gatherings haha. My personal favorite is the Sparkling Ice Strawberry Watermelon. To me, that’s what I think Summer tastes like, and it’s so refreshing! Tre loves the Sparkling Ice Grape Raspberry.
I was introduced to Sparking Ice® about 5 years ago. My mother-in-law just happened to have it when Tre & I visited and we thought we would try it out. After that, we were hooked! We always purchase our Sparking Ice® drinks at Jewel-Osco. You can find them in the same aisle where all the flavored sparkling waters are located. They’re hard to miss!
Not only is Sparking Ice® delicious, but there are so many other reasons why we love to drink them..

Picnic Family Gathering
Since we are social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic, one of our favorite ways to get together in the city is to go to the park and have a picnic. That way we can still have family quality time while practicing social distancing.
Not only did we get our Sparking Ice® from Jewel-Osco, but we also bought all of our s’mores ingredients from there too. If you haven’t made s’mores before, below are the must-have ingredients.
- Graham Crackers – we got the Honey Graham Crackers from Signature SELECT.
- Chocolate – I always get the chocolate bars with hazelnut in them
So simple right?!

It’s for sure our go to beverage!
I remember drinking these ALL the time just a few years ago, but it’s been too long since I’ve indulged in one. They’re really refreshing and perfect for summer. I love that you paired them with s’mores. Such a fun summer activity to enjoy while social distancing!
I think now is the time to indulge in it again! haha!

Perfect summer drink!
You two are adorable!! I’ve never tried Sparkling Ice, but they sound and look delicious.
I’ve never thought to try Smores with HAZELNUT chocolate! And, I need that little smores-maker in my life! Where did you get that?
Omg you need to have it with chocolate hazelnut. It’s amazing! Also got the portable S’more heater from Amazon.
Uhhh!! this looks so yummy! Plus, It seems to be very healthy which is something I’m currently trying to do: don’t drink sodas and this kind of stuff, but just natural and healthy drinks.
Thanks for sharing it 🙂
