Mugz The Ice Cream Maker by JUPITER CREATIONS INC
Mugz The Ice Cream Maker by JUPITER CREATIONS INCMakes ice cream or slushie in only 3 minutes. There will be a whole lot of shakin' going on with the the Ice Cream Mugz from Jupiter Creations. That's because a little bit of shaking results in frozen ice cream, juice, or yogurt in just 3 minutes...a mere 180 seconds. Simply place ice cubes and regular table salt in the mug bottom and milk, chocolate milk, juice, or yogurt in the aluminum cup. Then cover and shake, shake, shake. When the salt melts the ice cubes, the resulting ice water is actually colder than the frozen ice, and when this super cold water comes in contact with the aluminum cup, the aluminum gets cold enough to freeze the liquid. The result is both a yummy frozen treat and a science lesson, too. (Watch the Mugz The Ice Cream Maker Video Watch Video) 3/8/2012 (Price: $9.99; Age: 4 and up) [Add to my Inquiry Basket][?]
