Silver Ice Cream Containers: Love It Or Hate It?


I'm all for useless and unnecessary covers that personalize or beautify gadgets, foods, and everything in between. But when I saw these silver plated ice cream containers I thought, wow who would honestly buy them?? The idea is to slide the regular old Ben & Jerry's into these silver holders to hide the ugly carton. These containers not only promote extreme excess but over eating as well. Since when did a pretty little bowl become old fashioned? Are we really too lazy to scoop ice cream into a bowl? Before I rant about the horrible eating habits of Americans, tell me silver ice cream containers: love it or hate it?

they're almost $100? omg. i could buy a cheap coat with that rather than two pointless buckets. UNLESS they were for homemade icecream?

Oh goodness. Those are for *serving* ice cream, not *eating* from. They are covers to unify a nicely designed table as opposed to just plonking down some random sticky-coated container from the freezer (which is covered with what? And how would you serve it?). How funny that you would turn it into a fat American rant.

I think it's meant as a fancy way to serve something regular out of a carton at a party. I don't see their target audience being someone lounging in their sweats eating a pint of Cherry Garcia.

"there is nothing wrong with the regular ice cream containers!! why waste precious time moving ice cream from its original container to a shiny container? JUST EAT THE ICE CREAM!" ^^Was that directed at me? If so, just because I like the way something looks doesn't mean I would buy it. Not once did I say there was anything wrong with the original containers. As I stated above your post, I'm still all for using a bowl. There's no need to scream at a person for having an opinion. I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate someone doing it to you.

I think they are super cute. They would be great for a party and the guest could take them home as a party favor.

I like them. I would never buy them though. Just a thought, would the silver not freeze your hands? If so (which I'm assuming they would), it would defeat their whole purpose. I'm still all for using a bowl. ;)

They are cute, and you can use it for many other things than ice cream!

I seriously don't see the point. Just eat your ice cream!

Love them! They're adorable, but I don't know if I'd ever realistically purchase them.

For an ice cream taste testing party perhaps? I think they're cute for serving to groups, but I agree that it's terrible for personal use.

I think it would look nice to put out if you were having a little get together or something. I mean, I'd probably never buy them, but they look cute
