Yeah the pebbles aren't totally solid, it's like they have little bubbles in them or something, so they soak up the fluid around them and retain some taste even after the drink is gone. They get and keep the beverage down to ice temperature faster because they have a greater surface area. And they are very pleasing to chew since they're not solid.
It's like the difference between eating a solid potato and potato chips
