Ice Ice Baby

Thursday, 7 August 2008

PC and I enjoy throwing parties. We don’t get a chance to host as often as we would like. Crazy life…crazy hours…that kind of stuff. Several times a year, though, we do manage to pull it all together and with guests comes the need for drinks. And the need for ice.

Frozen water. Seems so funny to pay for frozen water. But we need ice and we don’t have an industrial ice maker so…eh, we pay for the ice. To tell you the truth, I never thought much about it. After all, it’s such a small percentage of the overall cost of throwing a “small” BBQ for 20 or 30 relatives. Apparently, however, there is quite the scandal in the world of packaged ice.

Apparently there are 3 major ice companies and for the past several years, they have cornered the market on ice. To the tune of $1.8 MILLION dollars.

That’s a lot of ice.
