Review and giveaway: Icential Coolwraps

*Disclosure- I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My family travels a lot these days, thanks to my work as a travel writer. And part of traveling with a family is often traveling with food that we need to keep cool.  However, I am not good at spatial challenges, so find packing a cooler full of food and ice packs to be very frustrating as I try to fit everything in and keep it all cool. Also, I was getting very frustrated by the constant efforts of the ice packs to escape from my home freezer. I can't tell you how many times they've crashed out of the freezer and on to my foot or the floor.

But there's a great new product that has solved this issue for me.  It's called Icential Coolwraps and it is brilliant. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:


The solution -- Icential® Coolwraps, a new all-in-one cooling system that is perfect for today’s busy families, making it easy and convenient to live life on-the-go and at home.

Coolwraps is the first multi-purpose cooling system that replaces old-fashioned cooling products taking up valuable freezer space. Designed with versatility in mind, it can be used for anything – from keeping food and beverages cool and fresh, to soothing a sports injury or providing relief from the heat.

  • Use one to wrap a beverage, a glass, a pint of milk or ice cream, wrap snacks, a wine glass, even an elbow or ankle.
  • Use two wraps connected together to wrap a gallon of milk, a six pack, a pitcher, or to line a shopping bag, a small cooler, even a backpack.
  • Use 3 or 4 connected horizontally or vertically to create a cooling mat for platters, bowls & casserole dishes, to lay on when your back is sore, to cover camping items with a sheet of cold...the possibilities are endless.
  • Cool+ gel is a technologically advanced gel that stays cold for hours. The Cool+ gel is self-insulating, uses food-grade materials, and is non-toxic. Cool+ gel lasts 4 times longer than any other gel and helps our earth save water and energy.


There are so many great things that I love about the Coolwraps.  I love that they don't take up much space in my freezer and fold up nicely for storage.  I also love how easy they are to use. We traveled this past weekend and it was simple to use wrap the Coolwraps around the products I wanted to keep cool, as well as to line the insides of the cooler for extra cooling.  The wraps definitely did stay cold for a long time, keeping my food safely cooled off, even after several hours in the car on a 70 degree day.

I have good news! One lucky reader will win a 2-pack of Icential Coolwraps in either blue or pink. Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.

I can't count how many times my husband has hurt his leg, foot or ankle. I always find a bag of frozen vegetables to wrap around his injury, but that gets messy and isn't very convenient. Coolwraps would make icing injuries soooo much easier!

Every week, one mom brings drinks for the other moms at our kids dance class. this would be perfect to keep the drinks cool instead of packing it with thick over-sized ice packs or a bag of ice.
