40 "Interesting" Ice Trays!

This blog post is going to be a little different than my usual posts, but I needed to indulge my inner geek a little bit. I had a lot of fun writing this post but I also discovered I have a pet peeve that requires a small rant. First off, when the hell did it become the "it" thing to not have regular ice cubes??? I didn't realize how popular non-cube ice tray had become. So popular in fact, I had a little trouble finding the classic 70's blue, stack-able ice cube trays that I'm pretty sure everyone had at one point. I kind of like this new trend. I personally have the shot glass molds. It is a great idea for parties and what not. But I noticed a trend with these new popular trays that really annoys the hell out of me...

I grew up calling them ice cube trays. Key word there...CUBE! Now I feel awkward saying that being that ice can easily be made into your favorite pop culture references or attached to straws (an awesome idea by the way). But the manufactures continue to call them ice cube trays! Lesson for the day:

cube (noun): a symmetrical three-dimensional shape, either solid or hollow, contained by six equal squares.

Damn it! These trays don't make cubes, so don't call them ice cube trays!! Call them ice trays or ice molds. Okay I feel better. :D

I made a list of my favorites, but this is only the tip of a massive ice "tray" berg...okay bad attempt at a joke. the ice trays.
