The Kickball Ice Cream Maker from Hammacher Schlemmer lets users burn calories while preparing their tasty, home-made treat
The summer heat is taking its toll, and ice cream sounds more delicious than ever. Instead of waiting in line to buy your two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough, you can now get in some physical activity before consuming your creamy scoop (or two) of calories.
The Kickball Ice Cream Maker from Hammacher Schlemmer is a device that lets users kick around a ball filled with ice cream ingredients with the promise of creating a pint of ice cream.
To start, users simply place cream, sugar, and vanilla or other flavoring into the ball’s four inch wide ingredient compartment, and insert ice and rock salt into a second compartment. After the compartments are sealed, the ball can be kicked, shaken, thrown, or hit, and the ball’s rubber exterior prevents it from breaking. After 20 minutes of play, approximately one pint of ice cream is ready to be eaten.
Weighing less than four pounds, and about the size of a volleyball, the Kickball Ice Cream Maker can be taken on-the-go to the park or the beach, or used in one’s own backyard. It’s a creative way to spend time with family or friends, and brings just a bit more excitement to a simple day in the outdoors. Growing up, we’ve always been told not to play with our food, but in this case, doing so seems perfectly logical!
