Tired of reaching in your freezer only to pull out your half-eaten ice cream when it was supposed to be full? Ben & Jerry's has created a solution to that pesky, ice cream-stealing roommate problem: a lock for your pint of ice cream.
Ben & Jerry's re-introduced the Euphori-Lock, a lock that slide over the lid of your ice cream and locks it.
Worried the dessert desperados have their eyes on your favorite ice cream flavor? Ben & Jerry's wrote. Hate to leave home for fear of cold-hearted pint-nappers? Tired of vain attempts to conceal your favorite passion behind the frozen peas? Ben & Jerry's wants YOU to breathe easier!
The lock is a two-part plastic security ring that deadbolts the lid of your ice cream which can only be unlocked with a secret code.
The best part? The Euphori-Lock is inscribed: I'm terribly sorry, but there is no 'u' in 'my pint.'
The idea came, according to Ben & Jerry's head of merchandise Katie O'Brien, from a disgruntled ice cream-eater.
This delightfully tongue-in-cheek concept actually came from one of our customers, who suggested we start selling our ice cream in stainless steel containers with little padlocks on them, O'Brien said.
The Ben & Jerry's Euphori-Lock can be purchased at any local Scoop Shop, according to the Burlington, VT-based company, or through the website for just $6.64.
