My fridge has cute ice cubes

i never thought ice cubes could be cute

It’s true. My new Electrolux fridge makes the cutest ice cubes. Out of all the cool features on my fridge, is it weird that I kinda love my ice cubes the most? Wait. We’ve already established I’m weird. Let’s continue.

So why is good to have cute ice cubes?

1. They make my drinks look better. They don’t overshadow the fruits I add to a beverage!


2. When you drink out of weird jars like me, sometimes the openings aren’t big enough to accommodate ice dispensers. In my old fridge, I would have to dispense the ice cubes into my hand and then place them in the cup I was using. Now I can dispense ice cubes into the silly little cups I drink out of. It saves me time and my hands aren’t cold from ice cube wrangling.


Oh BTW, this what my old ice cubes looked like. Nothing special…just your average ice cube that would hit the rim of a glass and most likely fall on the floor when dispensed. Sometimes they were stuck together when they came out and it would jam up the dispenser. Totally not fun.

3. When you have a smaller ice cube, it’s easier to drink your drink! Have you noticed how annoying it is having a big piece of ice smacking your mouth when you take a sip of a drink? I hate that feeling. Now when I’m drinking a drink, there’s just a light brushing from a small ice cube. It’s weird how a little thing can make a big difference.

Have I mentioned that they make my drinks look better??!!! They do!!!!!

My neighbor wants me to tell you that she enjoys putting her tongue in the hole of the ice cubes. That could be the gin talking… or maybe it’s not.

    I have freezer envy. Those are dang cute ice cubes!

  • Vanessa

    Definitely jealous of your cubes. I don’t even have a fridge that dispenses ice. I have to use the old fashioned ice cube trays.

    I bet it’s the gin talking 🙂 But is it Hendrick’s Gin?!? LOL, had to add that in.

    So jeals of your new fridge – looks awesome!

    And my vote for the next cocktail you should highlight (if you haven’t already) is the Pimm’s Cup. Yum and perfect for the excellent NorCal weather we’ve been having!

    I love that you wrote a post dedicated to ice cubes! And I completely agree – they are super cute!

  • Charlotte Cromwell

    I may just need to buy that fridge just for the ice cubes :-).. we are in the market for a new one and thats one of my priorities since we don’t have an ice maker in the current fridge..

    My wife is going to die. She LOVES these style of cubes beyond all thought or reason. I am almost afraid to show her this post.

    I can’t stop giggling over the comment from your neighbor. Ahem. I agree though, that is some very cute ice. 😉

  • Jessica

    Ice cube envy! I bought a couple handled mason jars at Goodwill awhile ago and love them for iced coffee. They made me think of you!

    it looks alot easier to fit in your water bottle. are they too round? the kids always want ice in their bottles and i cant fit normal ones so i have to make them melt some first then shove them in…after about three or four I’m done.
