Here’s a tailgating situation you have probably been through before:
Your friend shows up at the tailgate party but his “contribution” to the effort is a 12 pack of Natural Light. Adding to the pain is that it is still warm. You offer him the opportunity to cool off his warm beers in your cooler. While they are getting cold he, of course, helps himself to your expensive imports. You know, because he doesn’t want to drink warm beer and it will take about 45 minutes before HIS beers are cold enough to drink. By the time his beers are ready, he has already downed eight of yours and the only thing left in the cooler is his crappy beer.
Whether that has happened to you or not, you can totally picture it I am sure. If there was only a way to take a warm 12 oz. can and in two minutes make it just as cold had it been sitting in the cooler for hours.
Introducing the Frost Boss.
As you saw in their official video, the Frost Boss is a contraption that spins a regular 12 oz. aluminum can in ice and takes a warm can to cold in roughly two minutes. On top of that, after the can is chilled, there is no fear of the beverage can exploding or bubbling over because the liquid inside gets cold but not shaken up. Sounds crazy, right? That’s what we thought too so we just had to test it out for ourselves.
The Frost Boss sample we were sent is the newest design that includes the official NFL logo and has laces on the side like a football. Obviously they had football tailgaters in mind when getting the product licensed. We took a number of photos of the product which you will find below. Click on the individual images for a larger, more detailed view.
Sure the Frost Boss looks like it works in a slickly packaged video produced by the product manufacturer. Sure the Frost Boss looks good in photos I personally took. But does it really work? We can honestly and without hesitation say, yes. After testing it out a number of times we can easily say the Frost Boss is “Tailgate Approved”. Check out our own video we shot testing the Frost Boss while out tailgating before an Angels/Dodgers baseball game in Anaheim.
There are a number of benefits to the Frost Boss in a tailgating environment. The most apparent is that no matter how warm your beer is, you are only two minutes away from being able to drink it cold. That’s the obvious part. One aspect we really liked is you do not need to use any type of special ice. Ice from your freezer at home works just as well as store bought ice. And the biggest surprise was the lack of foam and mess. You would think a can spinning at 500 RPM for two minutes would explode when you open it but it doesn’t. It’s not magic. It’s physics but I am too lazy to go searching on Wikipedia for a layman’s terms explanation. You saw in our video that after the can stopped spinning we immediately opened it and there was no loss of beer.
No product is absolutely perfect and we did find one down side to the Frost Boss. The spinning base only fits standard 12 oz. cans. That means skinny cans like Coors Light, Keystone and those smaller energy drinks like Red Bull will not fit. But if that is the only drawback I guess the Coors Light drinkers will just have to plan better to ensure their beers are cold when they arrive.
The Frost Boss is available online for purchase for under $30. As of today, their site says they are having a summer sale so that price could possibly go up. In looking at their website, I did not see the NFL themed Frost Boss option available for sale so I am not sure if that version is more expensive. (Maybe we got one of the first NFL licensed ones as our sample from the manufacturer?)
