Fact: Ice cream can melt. And unless you’re a serious napkin hoarder or savage enough to lick those trickling lines of gooey sweetness, you’re at risk of getting yourself spoiled. Luckily for you ice cream lovers, 14-year-olds Oliver Greenwald and Sam Nassif from Colorado have provided an effective, yummy solution to your ice cream problems.
The Drip Drop, an edible ring made out of waffle ingredients, is an ingenious idea conceived by the youngsters at an amazing age of 10. It’s basically a ring that catches any ice cream drips which you can easily slide onto the cone – and it comes in two flavors: Original and Chocolate. The two teenage designers already won 2nd place at the Gates Invention competition for the design and have scored a U.S. Design Patent just last 2015.
Oliver and Sam believe that with the use of the delectable Drip Drops, people can forego using napkins and in turn save “approximately one million trees” every year.
