If you haven't heard about how Ice Shaker was started, here's a little recap...Former NFL Fullback, Chris Gronkowski had recently retired from football and was back living in a suburb just outside of Dallas, TX. If you have ever been to Texas in the summertime, you know it is HOT! Chris was on his way to the gym and had filled up one(of many) of his plastic shaker bottles with ice and water. He placed the bottle in his cup holder and by the time he got to the gym(only a several minute drive), most of the ice had melted and his cup holder now resembled a tiny swimming pool due to condensation. He thought to himself, "There's got to be something better than this!" After his workout, he scoured the internet, looking for something that would not only serve to shake up his supplement powders but, to keep ice for extended periods of time without the bottle sweating all over the place...As you can imagine(pre Ice Shaker days, of course) he couldn't find anything that offered the versatility that he needed. Right then and there he decided that he would have to solve this problem on his own and set out to create...The Ultimate Bottle.
A mere six months after that, Chris found himself face to face with five incredibly successful entrepreneurs on the hit ABC television show, Shark Tank. After presenting the Ice Shaker, it was evident that all five sharks wanted a piece of Ice Shaker. Offers were made by all five and Chris ultimately decided to partner with Mark Cuban and Alex Rodriguez. Nearly two years later, here we are. Ice Shaker is thriving and continually making waves in the insulated drink-ware industry. We have made several improvements to the 26oz Ice Shaker bottle since it's inception and people are taking notice(lot's of people!). Initially created as a supplement shaker bottle, it has quickly realized a competitive position in the insulated water bottle category. It offers everything that competitors in the industry have, plus A LOT more!
So, aside from mixing your supplement powders, what can the Ice Shaker bottle do? Well, for starters, it can hold ice for over 30 hours putting it ahead of most in the insulated water bottle category. Due to the airtight seal featured on the lid and tapered bottle design, it locks in the cold and keeps your beverage icy for longer than most anyone may require. In addition to being airtight, spill, and leak proof, the lid features the traditional "pop-top" opening mechanism that has been found on traditional shaker bottles for years. It is easy to open with only a flick of the thumb but is secure enough to ensure it won't open up in your gym bag, purse, backpack, etc. Ice Shaker has taken the best elements of insulated water bottles and traditional shaker bottles and combined them into one, utility bottle.
Moving on to another feature unique to Ice Shaker, the removable agitator....For those of you who have used plastic shaker bottles in the past, you are likely familiar with the "springy ball" for mixing supplement powders. You are probably also familiar with the rattling sound it makes when the bottle is not full. Every time someone walks into a room with one of these bottles I feel like yelling "Yahtzee"! Late for class or an important meeting and trying to sneak in undetected? Better ditch the plastic bottle for an Ice Shaker. We wanted better way to mix supplement powders so we came up with the removable agitator! It screws on to the bottom of the lid and pulverizes any powder that it comes in contact with, all while staying completely silent in the process. Great for mixing supplements, it is, but it also adds to the versatility of the Ice Shaker bottle. Pack the agitator with fresh fruit and allow it to bask in the ice cold water within your bottle for a refreshing, fruit infused drinking experience. Like mixing up cocktails? Use the agitator as the perfect mixer and strainer as you shake up your ice cold martinis throughout the evening. Ready for this one? Use your Ice Shaker to mix up pancake/waffle batter and pour it right into the pan or waffle iron for the cleanest breakfast making experience of your life!
