I was wondering exactly how people eat their ice here.
I eat mine in a custard cup, that holds about a cup of ice. I have one the fridges that has ice in the door, so I just set it to crush and fill the cup.
I used to eat it with my fingers, but one time I decided to try using chopsticks, and I don't know how I ever got along without them! It was hard at first, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly. I wasn't very good at using chopsticks when I started, but now I'm great at it!
I like to eat ice this way because:
The small cup keeps me from eating too much, and the chopsticks keep me from eating too fast, which is good.
The cup is the perfect size- I eat the smaller chips at first, and by the time I get to the bottom, the larger bits are nice and soft and crunchy-white, and the chips that were at the bottom are all clear and stuck together...I love it!
The chopsticks are more sanitary, and they keep me from freezing my fingers...they also keep my fingers from getting wet, so it's easier to eat ice and do something else at the same time.
Lastly, it improves my chopstick-abilities, and it's fun. (At least in my opinion! ^_^; )
I'm aware that my method of eating ice is pretty unusual, so I was wondering how most people do! Do you use your fingers? A spoon? Do you just tilt the cup back and open your mouth? How much do you get at a time?
