To most people ice cream is not a big deal, but others will defend the frozen treat with their life. Ben & Jerry’s has come up with what appears to be a simple solution: the Euphoria Pint-Lock. This is a plastic three digit pad lock that protects your precious pint from roommates and children that might be scheming to eat all of your delicious ice cream in the middle of the night.
But how well does it work?
We are still not entirely convinced that this Pint-Lock would not just pull off due to sheer brute force. Tom recalls his favorite Charleston pizzeria, Andolini’s, used to serve ice cream by the half pint, and by half pint that means they would saw the container in half. Clearly the Pint-Lock would not stand up to that sharp bread knife hanging on the wall. The really question is…will it fit on a Talenti plastic gelato pint? That might be a winning ice cream protection combination if you so need one. Unfortunately, according to Unitasker, this is not the case.
Tom is happy to say that he is no longer in a situation where he would need one of these, but at one point this might have come in very handy (and it doesn’t seem like it would have fit on a pint of Steve’s either). What is your ice cream situation like? Do you need a lock, or better yet, your own personal freezer?
One thing we are sure of though is that the tag line “I’m terribly sorry, but there is no “u” in “my pint”.” will only make a potential ice cream thief angry, and probably drive them to desperate measures.
The Ben & Jerry’s Euphoria- Lock can be purchased from B&J for $6.64 plus shipping if you want to try it out.
