Make A Splash With These Summer Pool Party Essentials


(NAPSI)—Summer is here and everyone is diving into the season by beating the heat at the pool. Whether you’re planning a pool party at home or attending a friend’s, it’s time to gather all the essentials for a day of fun, starting with staples like your favorite swimsuit, a towel and your go-to sunglasses. Beyond these everyday necessities, add a refreshing snack to your checklist that all your family and friends will enjoy, such as HI-CHEW™, the immensely fruity, intensely chewy candy.

HI-CHEW™ provides a bright burst of vibrant, real-fruit flavor packed into each chewy bite. Made with concentrated fruit juices and purees and 100 percent free of gluten, cholesterol and artificial colors, there’s a chew for any flavor preference. The candy is available in a variety of flavors and convenient formats.

For an assortment that will please everyone at the party, pick up the HI-CHEW™ Sweet & Sour Mix including fresh and zesty Grapefruit and Lemon flavors alongside HI-CHEW™ Watermelon, a tangy and tart take on the classic, thirst-quenching fruit that is a staple at pool parties across the country. Each refreshing, juicy chewlet in this mix brings the taste of summer with a slight puckering effect, a touch of sweetness, and the perfect balance of true-to-life fruit flavors.

To satisfy bigger groups, pick up large mixed bags such as the HI-CHEW™ Original Mix including the brand’s most popular flavors, Strawberry, Green Apple, Mango and Grape, or transport your taste buds to an exotic island with the Tropical Mix including fan-favorites Mango, Kiwi, Pineapple and Dragon Fruit. The chews are also available in on-the-go 10-piece stick packs that easily fit in your pool tote, which come in Strawberry, Green Apple, Mango, Grape, Banana, Kiwi and Açaí flavors.

Make a splash for the adult party-goers with a refreshing, easy-to-make, candy-infused cocktail. To infuse the candy, simply dissolve one piece of HI-CHEW™ in one ounce of liquor and mix in your favorite cocktail ingredients. Try this fruit-forward HI-CHEW™ Watermelon−infused take on the Julep cocktail:

Watermelon Julep

2 oz. HI-CHEW™ Watermelon−infused bourbon

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ cup fresh mint leaves

In a cocktail shaker, gently muddle the sugar and mint to release the oils in the mint leaves. Pour in the bourbon, shake with ice, and strain over pebble ice in a julep cup. Garnish with a large bouquet of fresh mint and serve with a metal julep straw.
