Default Looking for drying agent for freezer/lager chest

I thought I saw a post on here a while ago about combating the humidity in a lagering chest/freezer with some sort of desiccant that came in a tub and turned pink when it was saturated. Does this ring a bell with anyone and do you remember the name of the stuff?

Thx!

You can buy the stuff in a sealed bag that even has a hook on it to hang it inside your freezer. It is called Damp-Rid. Any hardware store will have it.

Thanks - I probably could've just asked the guy at Home Depot, but it was killing me not to remember it!
