IceSoKool Cup Review

Margarita in IceSoCool CupAbout 10 years ago, I traveled quite a bit with a previous job that took me all over the United States. I traveled heavily during the summers and visited the south eastern portion of the United States frequently. During one of those travels we stopped in at a Hooters in Gainesville, Florida. We ordered a pitcher of beer and when it arrived at the table, the busty waitress also had a small bag of ice in her hand. She tied the bag to the handle and floated it in the pitcher of beer keeping it cold while sitting on the table but did not dilute it with the melting ice water. Genius idea, we thought. If only someone could come up with a way to do that for a cup while out tailgating.

It took 10 years but someone apparently has already taken that concept of keeping your drink cold without diluting it with melting ice. We recently discovered the IceSoKool cup. Take a look at their “How it Works” video and you will see the concept of keeping your beverage ice cold without watering it down.

As you saw in the video, the IceSoKool cup is a dual chambered cup with a cylinder in the middle. You place ice cubes in the center cylinder and as the ice melts, keeps your beverage cold

IceSoCool cups work in a 1, 2, 3, 4 step process that takes 10 seconds.

  1. Remove outer cup by unscrewing it from the inner cup.
  2. Place ice in the cylinder of the inner cup.
  3. Screw the outer and inner cups back together.
  4. Pour in your favorite beverage

Now that your IceSoKool cup is loaded with ice, you are free to fill with your favorite beverage. The claim we heard was that even in the hottest conditions, it will keep your beverage cold longer than other cups you have to freeze prior to use. And when it comes to tailgating, having a freezer in the parking lot is next to impossible but there are tons of ice chests full of ice available. Compared to those mugs that have gel crystals in them that you have to remember to freeze prior to use, IceSoKool is so much more tailgate friendly. Open up the cup, pop in some ice, fill it up and your drink stays cold.

Seeing how the IceSoKool people make these bold claims against those other cooling cups, they have dome some pretty extensive research. Of course, call us skeptical or whatever you want, but we at Tailgating Ideas have always wanted to test products for ourselves to ensure their claims are really true. We requested a sample of the IceSoKool cup and tested it out for ourselves. Without going into exhaustive detail and photos of digital thermometers, we will cut to the chase and say it works.

IceSoKool Cup

We took two beverages out of the fridge at the same time and poured them into cups. (Just because the center cylinder penetrates the inside of the cup, you can still pour 12 oz. of liquid in there.) One was poured into a regular plastic party cup (don’t start singing the Toby Keith song in your head) and the other was poured into the IceSoKool cup. We tested the temperature to ensure they started out at the same temperature. 45 degrees. We then walked away and let them sit in 80 degree temperature for about 15 minutes. Once we came back, the party cup was significantly warmer. The temperature on the IceSoKool cup was unchanged. We then drank equal amounts out of each cup and then walked away again.

Upon returning to the cups after another 15 minutes, the party cup was almost room temperature and was undrinkable. The IceSoKool cup was still cold and we proceeded to drink the remainder. We concluded that if it takes you longer than 30 minutes to drink your beer, there is a larger problem that can only be solved by getting a bunch of infant bottle nipples.

In conclusion, the IceSoKool works well, keeps your drink cold without watering it down and is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. A single IceSoKool cup will run you $16.99 and you get a discount if you buy a pair, two for $31.98 and free shipping on the second cup.
