Trader Joe’s ice-cream fan finds cozy container wrap

Kream Kollar Trader Joe gall ice cream June 2014_72

From a new customer who really “gets it” about our unique Thinsulate insulated wraps for ice-cream containers. That’s kool!

Hi, I searched on Google for Ice cream container cozy. Most cozies ended up being for pints and I was looking for quart size. The others I found, like on Etsy and Ebay were crocheted. The Thinsulate insulation on yours was the top selling point though I liked the choice of designs also. 

I became recently addicted to Trader Joe’s Mint Chip ice cream. For the first time in my life, I started eating ice cream right out of the carton and using a towel wrapped around it because of the coldness. Then last Friday when I bought a new supply, there was a lot of ice cream dribbled over on the sides of the cartons and I wondered if there were cozies for ice cream cartons, hence my Google search. 

Can’t wait to get them, hope they fit. Once warm weather comes, the Thinsulate insulation will come in handy also.

Ice cream at the Drive In

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Two Kup Kollars on Contigo water bottle

Perry and I left Trappers’ Trail and biked to the Drive In at 2309 North Weber Street in Colorado Springs. It’s our favorite place for soft serve ice-cream. I ordered deliciously creamy chocolate with hot fudge sauce in a cup.

Perry ordered a medium-size chocolate cone. After biking in hot weather, this tall cone helps him cool off!

Open seven days a week, the Drive In has been at the same location since it opened for business in 1955.  They have a grill if you want lunch or dinner before the ice-cream!

This is the back entrance from the bike path. They have no indoor seating, but several picnic tables and long benches are available.

Pint and Quart ice-cream cartons with Kream Kollars

The easiest dessert to enjoy on RV travels is ice-cream.  It’s ready to eat, comes in many flavors, and is easy to find. You don’t have dishes to wash because you can eat from the pint or quart cartons. Slip on a Kream Kollar so the ice-cream stays cold while your hands don’t!

Finally, the Fleetwood RV is loaded and ready to go!

Trudy enjoys her hot coffee while Hans drives the RV north towards Alaska to fullfill their ten year dream!

Recyclable cup wraps and sleeves for Earth Day April 22

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Recycle Kup Kollar cup sleeve

Earth Day promotes awareness and appreciation for our planet. It’s a day to ask what you can do to help protect your environment. By using a recyclable cup sleeve, you save trees and don’t add to our huge landfills. Wrapping napkins around take-out cups or using a cardboard wrap doesn’t have the same effect. If you tell your friends about recyclable cup wraps, you help even more to protect our planet.

From Jennifer in Wisconsin: “Thank you! The cup wrap I ordered is a gift for my boyfriend and he will love them.  He hates the fact of wasting paper coffee sleeves and how many trees get chopped down to make them so it is the perfect gift!”

If you use coffee cozies, tea cosies, and cup lids to keep your drinks hot, you won’t have to keep reheating your drinks. That means you save electricity.

Kup Kollar Koffee Kozee

Put Thinsulate insulated coffee or tea cozies on your pitchers of iced drinks and cup sleeves on your cold glasses. The ice cubes won’t melt as fast. You save water because you won’t have to add ice to keep your drinks cold.

Kream Kollar Red Hats

Using an  insulated wrap on pints of ice-cream save trees because you won’t wrap paper towels around the carton to protect your fingers from the cold!

Boulder Ice Cream, a micro-creamery ice cream

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

ice cream wrap  sherbert  sorbet frozen yogurt                                                                                                                    If you’re tired of name brand ice cream but don’t want to make your own, try ice cream from a micro-creamery.  These companies make hand-crafted small batches. They are continually experimenting and adding new flavors.

Here in Colorado we have Boulder Ice Cream. They use a slow churn process and all natural ingredients.  Along with their delicious ice cream, they make sorbet, gelato and frozen yogurts. There are over a hundred flavors such as Boulder Brown Ale and Cranberry Walnut.  

I’ve really enjoyed using my Kream Kollar on pints of Boulder Ice Cream so I could write this blog post!

Protecting your hands from cold ice-cream pints

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

 ice cream wrap  sherbert  sorbet frozen yogurt                                                                                                                         A customer asked if the Kup Kollar Grande would fit on a pint of ice cream. She wanted something to protect her hands from the cold carton. Because I’ve eaten out of pints of ice cream many times, I was intrigued!  

The Kup Kollar Grande didn’t fit so I designed a pattern to create the Kream Kollar. Next, we needed a name for a cow graphic for the web site. At a board meeting (family dinner), Pam suggested Krissy Kow. I drew my ideas for a graphic, gave the sketches to John at Art and Technology, and he produced this adorable cow!

The Kream Kollar is designed with Thinsulate insulation by 3M which slows down the melting of your ice-cream while protecting your hands from a wet, cold pint container!
