Ben & Jerry’s ice cream lock

Gadgetflow.comGeeky kitchen gadgets image 2

Ben & Jerry's ice cream is so delicious that the merchandising team struck upon the idea of creating this lock for the company's ice cream tubs.  Katie O’Brien, from Ben & Jerry's merchandising team said that the idea actually came from one of their customers who said that the ice cream should be sold in stainless steel tubs with locks on them to prevent pudding theft. 

This gadget features a three digit combination lock, but is probably more of an amusing deterrent than an actual security device as a determined thief could easily just cut to cardboard tub open if they were that desperate.
