Heads Up *Cuckoo Exclusive* Sunday at 8am EST

Heads up there will be a cuckoo exclusive for Large Slow Melting Ice Cube Trays – Set of 2 Tray for $3.20 after the code I post at 8am EST Sunday, 02/01.  These are reg. $15.99. They would love an honest review!

• This square ice cube tray allows easy removal of one cube at a time as it is made of silicone
• Since the ice cubes are large, they melt slowly and therefore do not dilute the drink but simply make it nice and cool
• These ice cube molds are easy to clean and are dishwaser safe
• The non-slip silicone design allows the tray to securely sit alone or be stacked making it freezer and dishwasher safe
• To prevent freezing odor, once the cubes are made, do not store ice in the tray in the freezer, instead remove the cubes
from the ice cube mold and put them in an airtight container

I haven’t tried these yet but will order some when the exclusive goes live, but I did see this part of a 5-star review by Dre a top 50 Amazon Reviewer:

“The large, square ice cubes do a great job by cooling drinks quickly and melting slowly. I can get through two entire cans of room temperature Coke Zero on two ice cubes.’

So I think these would be great for parties!
