Ice Cubes

In need of ice cubes for a party, I went to the grocery store to purchase a ten pound bag. I noticed that the bag offered no product information. Our health conscious guests would want that for the ice used in their drinks. I asked the store clerk but was told I would have to call the ice distributor for the answers.

The distributor provided this information:

Cubes origin: Made in China

Cube count per bag: 480 cubes

Serving size: 6 cubes per glass (80 servings per bag)

Calories per serving: Zero

Use by date: December 2030

Suggested Storage Temperature: 32 degrees

Cubes contain only natural ingredients with no gluten, salt or cholesterol

Cubes are 100% organic

Safety: These cubes should not be chewed as a tooth could be broken. Avoid stepping on spilled cubes as a fall could result. Cubes represent a potential choke hazard for children.


I felt reassured about serving ice cubes with the drinks. Why isn’t that information printed on the bag?

    I hope you’re kidding. Chinese ice? Really? Do we have a refrigeration shortage around here?

    Really ‘cube origin” from China!? BTW I think you can buy ice from Zaxby’s and Chik-fil-a and they’re that addicting to crunch soft round ice.


  3. China? Did you say China? Like Allen, I hope you’re just joshing us. Ice is probably the LAST THING I would ever buy from China. I avoid any food that comes from China! Cool post, though. 🙂
