Cozy, a company that has a variety of clever solutions for managing Apple accessories, recently released its latest product, a whimsical "Drink Different" ice cube tray that makes ice shaped like a vintage Mac.

Cozy sent me some of the Mac molds to test out, and I can confirm that they work well and result in Mac-shaped ice cubes that Apple enthusiasts are sure to like.

The $12.99 Drink Different molds are made from a malleable food grade silicone material, which you fill up with water and then put in the freezer, much like a standard ice cube tray. These are larger than the standard cubes that you get with an ice cube tray, so one or two are ideal for a regular cup. For something like a glass of whiskey or scotch, one will suffice.

On the outside, the molds read "stay thirsty" and "stay foolish," and on the inside, there's Mac detailing that creates the classic Mac shape, which includes a "Hello" script, an indentation for the display, and small cutout for the disk drive.

You can get the mold in three colors: space gray, classic beige, and granny smith green, all of which are identical and make the same shape. Once frozen, you can peel away the silicone to get the ice out. It's not quite as easy as cracking ice out of an ice cube tray, but it's not much more involved, either.

The mold results in a fairly accurate representation of a Macintosh Classic in ice form. Mine didn't look quite as perfect as the ones in Cozy's photos, but the cubes weren't too far off. I think it takes a little bit of trial and error with water level to get the ideal shape because mine were bulging a bit, but even then, the cubes looked decent and all of the details came out right.

I'm not too fussed about the small imperfections because the Mac shape lasts for just a few minutes in liquid before melting into a more standard cube shape. In most liquids I don't think you're really going to see the Mac shape unless it's filled just a bit as in Cozy's scotch example.

Most ice is not completely clear, and the cloudiness can sometimes make it a bit hard to see the detailing of the Mac design. It's difficult to get clear ice at home, but boiling distilled water will get you close. Taking pictures of details in ice is also not particularly easy, so I'd like to point out that these look better in person with crisper details.

As with most silicone molds like this, you can also potentially use them for candy making and chocolate, but it's going to take a lot of chocolate to fill one up. Theoretically, food grade silicone can also go in the oven so you could make little mini Mac cakes, though the details might not come out. Popsicles are also an option, as are soaps given the versatility of silicone.

Bottom Line

$12.99 is expensive for an ice cube tray, but it's right in line with other novelty ice products that are on the market. If you're looking for a gift for an Apple user or want to spice up your own drinks with some Mac-shaped cubes, the Drink Different is a fun choice.

This is the longest ice cube tray review that I have ever read. This is also the only ice cube tray review that I have ever read.

Version 2 could be the Mac mini cube, and version 3 the Mac Pro 2013 :D
And version 4 will be the 2019 Mac Pro cube!

Not gonna lie, this made me chuckle. I'd probably pick one up for when I do some booze.

Also, it's a reaaaaaaally slow news day.
