You Can Now Secure Your Ice Cream With This Lock: Brilliant or Bummer?

Ben & Jerry's is brilliant. That is, if you're the one buying the ice cream. The new Ben & Jerry's Euphori-lock is intended to keep ice cream lovers in your house away from your personal stash. With a simple three-digit code system, the pint lock is pretty easy to use. That -- and it only costs $5.50.

The idea was actually initially suggested by a fan -- but the ice cream company totally went for it. And we can see why. No one likes ice cream thieves. And now you can do something about it! Do you think the Ben & Jerry's ice cream pint lock is brilliant... or is it kind of a bummer because you're the one trying to sneak some bites?

    It's a bummer because instead of taking a bite they take the whole thing. :(

    Funny...but, brilliant. Perhaps a little taser shock, when someone goes to sneak a bite of your ice cream? Especially when they spoon it directly out and into their mouths, not even putting in a dish. Lock sounds good. Of course, if they really want your ice cream, they could take a knife and cut out the bottom of the container, throw the whole thing away afterward...and just deny knowing anything about it.

    Neither, really. But food stealing pisses me off. I don't know why people think it's okay.

    This is GREAT I live with room mates. HA beat that. Then again they could just cut the middle of the lid off.

    I doubt that would stop some people. From the photo it looks like the container itself is still made of paper. It's so easy to just cut from the bottom to get the ice cream out. Even if it were plastic all you need is something to cut it and voila. This feature in an odd way probably will entice someone more to eat their ice cream.. lol.

    I love this idea! The thought of ppl, putting their disgusting spoons in my ice-cream makes me just toss if I think it's been tampered with. I don't like eating behind most ppl.

    Seriously ..
    I used to just lock the ice cream in my Upright Freezer instead ..
    paid for once .. it is still working quite well indeed ..
    and with the key on me .. there's no way to grab the ice cream by any whom I don't want them to have it!

    Ben and Jerry are socialist jerks. Just cut a hole in the bottom of the carton and EAT IT ALL.

    For the masterminds like myself, all I need is a kitchen knife to circumvent this concoction: that, or to let the ice-cream thaw a little, and squeeze the container out :)

    Take care,

    With my sisters, a bit of wisdom we know.: Leave least amount of evidence that you were in it. We all know better than to damage the carton. LOL



    Though since we have gotten older, we are more aware of missing bits of ice cream. 75% of the time one of the two is lying, I'm the only one who doesn't sneak anymore.



    I'm deprived of my favorite ice cream sandwiches because my mom doesn't want them stealing, now. XD

    It would be a waste of money for that lock. Your ice cream can still be stolen; someone can cut the bottom out of your ice cream container because its paper. ;-))
