I might have just found the perfect thing to keep your drinks cold this summer. Shop Disney sells a bunch of different ice trays as part of their Disney Eats collection, but one really stood out.
This Mickey Mouse Straw Ice Tray is basically two kitchen accessories in one. It has two reusable straws that sit in an ice cube tray – so when you pop the cubes out, you really get a straw covered in ice shapes!
Not only does this look super fun, but I can't wait to try it out with grown-up drinks. My first plan is to freeze juice in this tray and then pop the straw in a glass of sangria. No more diluting it with ice!
Each straw has space to fit four Mickey Mouse-shaped ice cubes, and the tray is made from flexible silicone, so it should be easy enough to pop each straw out without sacrificing any of the ice. You can pick one up from Shop Disney for $17.32 CAD. It's not dishwasher-safe, so make sure you wash this one by hand.
if you're looking for a greener alternative to single-use plastic straws (and want something you can take out with you), they also sell a Mickey Mouse Reusable Straw Set. It comes with eight reusable straws and a cleaning brush – so you can really get in there and clear out any gunk or lipstick residue.
They also sell an alternative to traditional ice trays: these Icon Reusable Ice Cubes. My family used something similar when I was growing up, and they're super handy whenever you have a full freezer and can't quite squeeze in an ice tray without water dumping everywhere. Shop Disney sells them as a set of 24. Just wash them before use and pop 'em in the freezer. A few hours later, they'll be frozen and ready to use!
