Epica Classical Ice Spheres {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Have you enjoyed the incredibly cool weather this summer, and taken advantage of the temperatures by throwing lots of parties?!  I’ve been honored to review several of Epica’s products, and they all seem to be fabulous for entertaining and quickly become a topic for conversation when we have guests over!  The Extra-Large Ice Ball Silicone Double Mold has proved to be exactly that, while also being a fun toy for my kids!

These are an alternative to the traditional ice cube tray.  These work the same way, as in they are effective in cooling down your drink, but because these spheres have less surface area than the cube, they are slower to melt.  Slower melting ice means less watering-down, which means tastier beverages longer.

Plus they look so fancy!  The instructions are simple and completely intuitive.  Just put the two pieces together, pour water through the hole at the top, freeze for 5-7 hours, and open the ball.  Make sure the seal is tight.  One of mine leaked a little as I was finding a space for it in the freezer, but I don’t think I had ensured a tight seal.

When we first pulled these out, I thought how fun these would be when we have guests over, but also, how fun it would be to hide toys and objects inside to make little activity balls for my boys!  I dropped a few surprises into the water before putting them in the freezer, and they created fun little activity toys.

I let my boys play with them in the bathtub and they were a hit!  They melted fairly quickly, but it was pretty warm bath water.  I’m sure in a lukewarm glass, they would not melt so fast.

The frozen balls were easy to release, especially because these are not made of plastic.  The flexible silicone makes it easy to pop out the balls, and still makes them dishwasher safe.  The directions don’t indicate being able to use these in the oven, but I wonder how they could handle baking, since silicone really is the wonder material that can do practically anything.

So fun!
