The 6th Day of Ice Cream: The pint cozy

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on December 19th, 2011




FACT: Turkey Hill makes a wide variety of ice creams in pint sizes. FACT: Eating ice cream from a pint is fun, but often results in frozen fingers (which isn’t fun).

It’s true, Turkey Hill does make pint-sized ice cream and eating ice cream from a pint does result in a mild but totally worth it case of frostbite. Today’s prize — the ice cream pint cozy — is designed to eliminate the frosty fingers while also insulating your ice cream and keeping it nice and cold. The Etsy seller behind these little ice cream sweaters, A&B Originals, describes them like this:

Our sox are very different from others … they have a bottom. The entire ice cream pint is covered, and the crocheted cover will absorb any moisture from the container as the ice cream is eaten.

We’ll choose one comment from all the comments left on this entry to win this ice cream insulator (your choice of colors — check them out here). As always, we’ll throw in some free Turkey Hill ice cream. Good luck!

UPDATE: If you’re interested in purchasing one of these cozy’s (only $10!), the crafty lady behind A&B Originals had this to say in a comment on this entry: MENTION TURKEY HILL ICE CREAM in your message to seller while checking out and get a 20% discount refunded to you. Thanks again Turkey Hill for featuring my wild and crazy ice cream cozy, I have enjoyed reading all of the comments !!!

    I never had frostbite from eating a whole container, pint size, of turkey hill, BUT it probably is why I have a bigger BUTT than most of my friends

  8. Lisa Hoffman says:

    Love it! No more cold hands…and now no one will the flavor that I am eating so I wont have to share!

  9. Lisa says:

    This is perfect for the winter months, since I get pretty chilly eating ice cream as it is, this will keep my hands from freezing as well.

  10. Tim Lintz says:

    We are such an innovative society. For every thing you think you need, someone has already invented it.

  11. Karen says:

    Very cute I just hope it fits my nightly mug.

  12. wendy crane says:

    cute idea! how about a sweater for the big ice cream containers too when you are too lazy to dish it out to a bowl ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Bonnie says:

    How clever!

  14. Thanks so much for featuring my Ice Cream Cozy on your blog, contact me please so I can donate the cozy to the cozy winner on your blog !!!! Thanks again !! Angela

  15. sandra smith says:

    Wow! Now a sock for the ice cream container. But don’t hid it- please let me visualize the box to know what the flavor is.

  16. Who stops at a pint? Wish I had the pattern, could make one.

  17. Traci says:


  18. FranZ says:

    The cozy is really cute. With or without it, I would eat the ice cream out of the pint.

  19. Jennifer Barr says:

    cute idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Carol Y says:

    Sounds like a great idea!

  21. Denise Wilson says:

    Too cute!

  22. pati m says:

    This is different! lol

  23. Mary says:

    Pints are great for sampling something you aren’t sure you like, BUT if you like the new flavor you end up eating the ENTIRE pint.

  24. Anne King says:

    Never saw one before! Would love it; what a novel idea!!

  25. Jim in SOMD says:

    It looks like a Christmas drum. One that the Little Drummer Boy would play.

  26. Rebecca says:

    Oh boy, I can see myself getting some milage out of this one considering how much I hate frozen fingers!

  27. Vijay says:

    Wow, you learn something everyday! I did not know it is possible to get Turkey Hill in pints!! Now, on to the search!!!

  28. Lesley says:

    this would be perfect for me. I love eating all kinds of ice cream especially the pints.

  29. Emilia says:

    Now I’ve seen everything. Interesting concept…if you only want a pint.

  30. Cindy Youtzy says:

    Delicious Turkey Hill ice cream AND warm hand while eating from the carton. What could be better???

  31. sue says:

    a VERY cute idea–perhaps i would pick colors that match one of my favorite teams!!…the Phillies or Eagles

  32. MC says:

    Hope it comes with a matching scarf!

  33. Bob Derkis says:

    Wow, this would be great with my Turkey Hlll ice cream. Now, all I have to find is a “sock” that will fit a “half gallon” of Turkey Hill Black Cherry.

  34. Sally says:

    I’ve never heard of an ice cream cozy. What a wonderful idea!

  35. Katryn says:

    Hahaha, this is probably the best invention EVER.

  36. linda says:

    o-vay! What next? These prizes keep getting weirded every day!

  37. Chris says:

    What a cute way to eat ice cream.

  38. Christine says:

    Very cool!

  39. Mrs says:

    I think that I would need a bigger sox for my bigger container of ice cream. Although, I guess that hopefully I’m not eating All of the bigger container myself ….

  40. Carolyn says:

    That is too funny! A nice solution to my cold fingers!!

  41. Harriet G. says:

    My first reaction when I saw the ice cream cozy was “How adorable”. I do not eat a whole pint in one sitting, but I would use it on pint containers when I scoop out ice cream.

  42. Phyllis says:

    Oh, how silly, cute, and useful all at the same time!

  43. andrea says:

    That’s brilliant!
    I think I need a few to match my different colors of ice cream ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Ruth Matthews says:

    Sox it to me with Turkey Hill ice cream.

  45. Keely Hostetter says:

    I think my mom would enjoy this one!

  46. Jean Marie says:

    What would they think of next of next!!!!

  47. Pauline says:

    Hmmm…. a pint sized ice cream knitted coat…..strange and wonderful:
    strange outside, and wonderful Turkey Hill ice cream inside!

  48. Betty says:

    could use this

  49. Val says:

    A very oriiginal idea. I love it.

  50. michelle says:

    must say this is different

  51. Elaine Garfield says:

    just the kind of sock I need

  52. John says:

    This could double as a hat for a small dog!

  53. william grubb says:

    send me two…my wife can put em on her hooters before we go sledding…

  54. Tammy Hozak says:

    Some people believe in Santa, but I believe Turkey Hill is yummie ice cream!!!!

  55. mary ann e says:

    BABY! It’s cold outside,as FROSTY would say.So let’s COZY up in side with my mint choc.chip ice cream,Hay,Hay!

  56. Caroline says:

    This would save me from finding a pair of gloves to wear instead!

  57. JC says:

    This would be the perfect gift for my wife, a way to eat ice cream right out of the container and keep her hands warm.

  58. Joann Ferguson says:

    Great idea. I love it, instead of eating only half the ice cream I’ll eat the whole pint or maybe 2 maybe 3.

  59. Norma says:

    Very nostalgic. Reminds me of the old fashioned tea cozy, though that was designed to keep your tea hot, not the best idea for Turkey Hill.

  60. Belinda says:

    I love to crochet but have never ever had thought about this idea. Brilliant!!!!!!! Though love to win it if I can.

  61. dee says:

    What a GREAT idea! Now our hands won’t be cold when we eat our favorite Turkey Hill flavors.

  62. angela says:

    Wow! – Why didn’t I think of that?
    I love to try different flavors in pint size and always freeze my fingers if I don’t have a potholder handy.
    Another “cool” prize Turkeu Hill!

  63. marty says:

    Now I won’t have to give “samples” to people if they don’t know what flavor I have! Great idea.

  64. Judy says:

    My Grandmother could crochet in her sleep. If she was still alive I’d ask her to make these.

  65. Roxane M says:

    This cozy is such a cute idea… I think Turkey Hill needs its name on them. What an awesome marketing giveaway!

  66. Robin Ames says:

    Now THAT is a clever (and cute) idea!! I want to win this prize!!!

    Quaint! I am on to the Vanilla with hot fudge sauce today.

  71. pat goodrich says:

    very original and just in time for the cold nights when you are eating turkey hill ice cream and holding the cup in your hand. It beats putting a paper towel around the cup so your fingers don’t freeze while enjoying my favorite ice cream dutch chocolate.

  72. Karen says:

    What a great idea to keep your hands from getting frostbite in the winter!

  101. Alisabeth says:

    Ice cream is great any time of the year! What better way to warm those fingers ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. Meghan says:

    this is not only super cute but its a great invention! and it will help insulate the ice cream too to keep it frozen…which means it will last even longer and you get more time to enjoy it…although with a pint, i could polish that thing off in under 5 minutes…and it would even be worth a brain freeze!

  108. Charlene says:

    Very clever. What will be next?

  109. Well, I thought after the Snuggie, and pajama jeans, nothing else could take the cake and wa,wa here comes a blanket for my ice cream. I could use the free ice cream, but seriously I only indulge in half gallons, so if there is one for that size then sign me up. Merry Holidays to all.

  110. Kathy Flaherty says:

    I love the crocheted cover that fits the ice cream container.
    Hands won’t get cold while eating out of the Turkey Hill ice cream container!

  111. Bonnie Aanonsen says:

    How clever! My hands are always cold.

  112. Regina says:

    That’s so cute but a pint is only an appetizer in my house.

  113. Brenda D. says:

    I actually have something like is insulated,like a piece of foam made to fit around the pint works both in keeping the ice cream cold and helping to keep your fingers from freezing and getting all wet from the sweat on the conatiner.i know this one isn’t exactly like that but………just saying.this is the right idea,in a way.

  114. Laura Royal says:

    That’s perfect for me….I hate having cold hands. I love it, so cute too!

  115. Jen Turney says:

    That is sooo cool!!! Very creative!! : )

    I love the ice cream pint cozy – what a wonderful idea! I have suffered from frozen fingers many times. With the cozy, my fingers will be frosty free!

  121. mindy says:

    Such a cute gift idea!

  122. Bob Kessler Jr says:

    This is practical and useful. If you could knit it would be something you could give as a Christmas gift. You could have a color to match the Turkey Hill flavor you are enjoying at the time. For now I’ll put this on my wish list.

  123. Faith says:

    Reminds me of Grandma

  124. BakerBabe says:

    Have you ever glanced at something, and someone or something instantly came to your mind? Well, that’s what happened with the pint cozy for me. I instantly thought of my deceased Granny who loved to both knit and eat chocolate ice cream (always out of a little blue bowl).

  125. Elaine M says:

    This will lead to additional TH IC for sure! Usually….as my hand gets too cold I know it is time to stop eating!

    Very coooool

  127. Margaret W. says:

    Now THAT’S a cute idea!

  132. JW says:

    cute idea, I like the grey and teal color options

  133. Julie says:

    At first sight I thought that was a little weird, thinking it might warm up the ice cream, but then I realized how many times I’ve had cold hands eating ice cream from the carton!! LOL Great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll take one in pink please! ๐Ÿ™‚

  134. Nathalie says:

    I have had to wash soooo many towels

  137. Christine says:

    I normally don’t buy the pints of ice cream because once it’s gone you can’t enjoy more of the same the next day! I need the big box to make me happy! But on a picnic the pints are super convenient!

  175. Angie says:

    This is something I NEVER would have thought of, but how clever!

  177. Sarah Z, says:

    This would only encourage me to eat the entire pint!

  178. Joshua says:

    Has anyone heard of or used Pint Pal ( before? I’m not much of a crocheter so these seem really reasonable. I was planning to pick some up for friends this holiday. Thanks
