During talks with your folks or at the end of corny moralistic movies there’s usually a line which suggests that money can’t buy happiness. While it may be true with material objects like zebra print carpets and that weird china budgie you use as a doorstop, those mighty moralists have obviously never appreciated the divine deliciousness of ice cream. Harness that happiness every day (or every hour – up to you) with a Play and Freeze ice-cream maker for R199 from Seagull Industries.
Another moralistic murmuring that does apply here is that in life you should enjoy the little things – and oh how you will enjoy this little angel of modern pudding engineering. The Play and Freeze ice-cream maker is lightweight, portable, easy to clean and doesn’t require electricity to run – not that you’ll be letting it run anywhere. That means that you can take the Play and Freeze anywhere, whether it’s to that overdue camping trip, a picnic or a party; heck, if you are going to miss it that much you can carry it under your arm to the grocery store or fashion it its own carrier bag.
If you’re worried about the pure mission of making ice cream – it’s way easier than driving a car, which you would have to do if you wanted to go buy an ice cream. Just add ice and rock salt in the one end of the Play and Freeze and then add your ice cream mix to the other end. Your mixture can be as simple as cream, sugar and vanilla or as unique as peanut butter, jelly beans and unicorn dust, but you can mix and match with all the different flavours that come in the recipe book included in the packaging. Just shake it, pass it and roll it and in as little as 20 minutes you’ll be able to enjoy the satisfaction of eating home-made ice-cream.
Yum Fact: Peanut-butter and Jelly-Spizzle flavoured ice-cream is said to be the most delicious ice-cream on earth. Rumour has it that whenever someone gets hold of the rare flavour and takes a bite, church bells can be heard ringing all the way from Notre Dame to the Mariana Trench.
