Kronik Chill

Kronik ChillWe see a whole lot of products out there designed to help people keep their drinks cold. From coozies to Beer Hugs, everyone seems to be trying to come up with a way to avoid losing the chill in your cocktail. To be honest, we don't have a lot of problems with keeping our drinks icy - they're usually inside us long before they have time to warm up.

We did learn about an interesting product recently called Kronik Chill, however, that made us sit up and take some notice. As far as we can tell they're lined styrofoam cups that you keep in the freezer, and they're different than anything else we've seen. For one, they market themselves as "reusable and disposable" which means you can wash them if you're up for it but they're cheap enough (a case of 24 for $24) to toss if you want after the party's done. For two, according to the test on their site, they keep the chill much better than a regular old keg cup.

We like the concept that styrofoam will keep your hand from getting cold, the fact that you can stack 'em in the freezer, and that you can toss 'em when you're done (environment? what environment?) so we're thinking about getting our hands on some for our next office margarita party. You can check them out and pick up a case of cups at KronikChill.com.

Update: After concerns were raised in the comments of this story about the shipping price for Kronik Chill, the company lowered its shipping price from $10 for 2 dozen cups to a $5.99 flat rate. That works out at less than a quarter per cup for shipping - not too shabby! Viva la revolucion!

So basically $1.42 per cup. So you mean to tell me that you would shell out this much per "Disposable" cup? This cup is easy to make. It's a styrofoam cup, with a bit of refrigerant gel (available at a ton of places online) and a plastic cup inside. I can make 10 of these for what it costs for 1. Great idea but too easy to make.

Well played sir. Thanks for the due diligence when we were being too lazy to do the math.

Shipping is costly these days. This example is from St. Louis to Beverly Hills:

UPS 12lbs. $14.04

FED EX 12lbs. $11.54

DHL 12lbs. $9.74

Even with $10 shipping they are still less than $1.42 per cup.
