Cocoknits is shocked, people, shocked to learn that there are households in America which do not contain a single pint cozy! How do you keep your fingers warm and your ice cream cold while eating directly out of the pint?
Once you try one, you’ll know this is the ultimate practical gift… forget the spa, roses, diamonds… hand someone a cozy, a spoon and pint of the good stuff. Need I say more?

Size:

To fit a Ben and Jerry’s pint, other pints may vary slightly: 10 in / 25.4 cm bottom circumference, 11.25 in / 28.6 cm top circumference and 2.75 - 3 in / 7 - 7.6 cm tall.

2 or more Ben and Jerry’s pint-sized Ice Creams, 1 to shape the cozies, 1 to eat; see note.

Note: the pints need to be full, an empty pint container will collapse under the pressure of a damp cozy.
