There was a scene in the cut-down-in-it’s-prime cartoon Futurama where Fry, one of the show’s main characters is eating Oreos. Of course in the future where the show took place Oreos are overpackaged to the point where both the cookie portions and the cream centers each come in their own individual wrappers and require assembly before eating. That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw these Ice Rocks.
From the ‘Water Bank of America Inc,’ Ice Rocks are basically spring water that has been pre-packaged in hermetically sealed ice cube trays that you can buy at the grocery store and stick in your freezer at home for clean, pure ice cubes whenever you need them. Now granted the trays themselves are made from recyclable plastic which is nice but I’m still not seeing the reason someone might need these. The company also boasts their partnership agreement with the Red-Cross on their site but even in an emergency situation I can’t see Ice Rocks being that useful.
When available Ice Rocks will be sold in packs of 4, 24, 48 and a family pack of 200 cubes but no pricing info is available at the moment.
