euphori-lock

At one time or another, we’ve all been victim to one of the most heinous crimes imaginable. It starts as an innocent trip to the freezer to pull out a pint of Chunky Monkey but ends in tragedy as we realize that someone has beaten us to it.

Well, no more. Introducing the Euphori-Lock from Ben & Jerry’s

According to a press release, “The all-new Euphori-Lock from Ben & Jerry’s is designed to promote family harmony – and salvage your peace of mind!” The company states that the idea for the device came from a clever customer who suggested they sell the ice cream in stainless steel containers with padlocks attached.

Clearly, she knew the heartbreak of living with an ice cream thief.

The plastic two-ring locking mechanism fits securely on your choice of flavors in the pint size and then locks with a secret code.  Look closely, and you’ll notice that the inscription reads, “I’m terribly sorry, but there is no ‘u’ in ‘my pint’.”

And while we can’t attest to its impenetrability, the Euphori-Lock itself is no joke; you can purchase one from the Ben & Jerry’s online store for a mere $6.64. A small price to pay for peace of mind.
