PUBLIC OPINION > Lock Up Your Ice Cream
Fun 2012/05/23 18:00:00
Ben & Jerry's is almost perfect, but their delicious, variegated ice cream has one glaring flaw: It's too easy to steal. Well, that's what the Ben Jerry's Euphori-Lock is for. The Euphori-Lock is quite simply a three-digit code lock that fits onto the lid of a Ben & Jerry's pint. That's a one-time fee of $5.50 for a lifetime of secure Cherry Garcia. We asked the public if it was a good idea.
Once again, the dairy duo have come up with a brilliant product. Not only did the majority favor the Euphori-Lock, but many of the respondents who didn't were only opposed because they either wanted access to an alluring pint or because they could still get the thing open. The Top Opinion suggested a knife to get it open, and some tin foil to keep it fresh until the unsuspecting victim found their compromised container. But it would take a special kind of nasty to carry that out.
Women Want Their Ice Cream Secure
Everyone loves ice cream, but for some reason, many women seem to take it to a different level. It's a source of comfort and a not-so-guilty pleasure. So we weren't too surprised to find that women were 20% more likely to think the Euphori-Lock is a brilliant idea. If you take anything away from this recap, it's this: Don't get between a woman and her ice cream.
Not as Appealing When You're Older
For some strange reason, enthusiasm for the Euphori-Lock dropped consistently as voters got older, from 69% among teens to 40% with voters over 65. That could mean people are less likely to enjoy ice cream as they get older, or it could mean that older people are more willing to share their ice cream. Either way, we don't want to grow up.
Vital If You're in a Relationship
This could be related to age, but there was a large gap between respondents who were in a relationship and those who were married. Voters in a relationship were also more enthusiastic about the Euphori-Lock than singles, suggesting perhaps young couples are prone to stealing each other's ice cream.
