Some of my favorite things are so simple, like ice cube shapes for example. Here’s a list of some of my favorite Ice Cube Trays and related inventions, not including the previously featured Global Warming Ice Cubes!
1. Cool Shooters
2. Bone Chillers
Drink from a stein that’s been chilled to the bone with this Skull and Cross bone Ice Cube Tray! There’s nothing more fun than talking like a pirate, unless you have these cool ice cubes in your glass.
3. Ice Princess
Ice Princess is made from 100% pure food grade silicone, packed in recyclable, peggable clear boxes. This unique ice tray creates magic wands fit for a fairy princess, or if your name is dale from electronics.
4. FishBone Ice Cube Tray
Make crazy fish bone shapes to float around in your glass. These are great if you are mixing Swamp Drinks for kids birthday parties, have them floating around in the punch bowl if you normally mix really horrible drinks like me.
5. FOSSILICED Dinosaur Bones
Fossiliced dinosaur bones ice cube trays are pretty sweet. How about getting even more creative? Why don’t you half set some Jello and add some FLAVORED pina colada ice cubes into your Jello? This way you’ll be digging bones in your dessert, and they will taste great!
6. AK Frozen Bullets
AK Frozen Bullets are either the most perfect way to commit a crime and leave no evidence, or a wicked way to cool a drink. Not that you’d ever add an ice cube to your beer, but the silver bullet probably couldn’t get any worse if you did.
7. Frozen Smiles
Frozen smiles is probably the fastest way to get brain freeze if you actually put the whole thing in your mouth. If you are having a hip hop party, I highly recommend making them out of orange juice so everyone can have a grill.
8. Gin and Titonic Ice Tray
Gin and Titonic, Titanic Ice Cube Trays. It his highly recommended to yell “I’m the King of the world!!” as you slam one back.
9. Ice Invaders
Ice Invaders Ice Cubes. Live your Atari glory days with these bad boys. They actually have little angry faces to boot and will be mad at you for the entire duration of your beverage consumption.
10. Cool Jewels Ice Cube Tray
Cool Jewels Ice Cube Trays. Now you can have diamonds and rupees everywhere. Fruit Punch Rupees, Ice Diamonds, Kool-Aid Emeralds. You get the picture.
11. Lego Ice Trays
Lego Ice Cube Trays. So you like these hunh? Well how about learning how to make them all by yourself right here!
Update: New Lego Ice Cube Trays have once again been made available online at the lego shop and these can be found right here.
12. Water Bottle Ice Cubes
The Water Bottle Ice Cube Tray is a great invention. They fit perfectly inside your water bottle to keep your water cool on the go and they are big enough to last quite awhile.
13. Shark Fin Ice Cube Tray
The Shark Fin Ice Cube Tray is great for those tropical, Hawaiian, or surfer summer beach parties. I’m not quite sure why they never used a blue drink to show off these little Shark Fins, but they’d probably look the best if the water were blue, don’t you agree?
14. Ice Cube Bags
Ice Cube Bags.
They can be found at pretty much any Save-On-Foods, Safeway, or Superstore now. Apparently they have been around for 2 decades! But it’s new to me.
Just fill the bag up with water, put in the freezer, pull them apart and there you have it! A bag full of crushed ice.
15. Stone Cold Ice Tray
These stone cold statuesque Moai of Easter Island Ice Cube trays are the newest from Fred & Friends products which will be available everywhere this fall.
Update: They are now available here
