There are times when you are at work where you have the best ice cream parlor in town around the corner from your office. But you want to take the ice cream home and enjoy it there. Is there a way to keep the ice cream from melting at work without storing it in a refrigerator or ice box (which is unavailable at work) for at least 6 hours ?

P.S: The ice cream is given in a plastic container.

Buy a thermos, they are generally cheap and they help insulate things to stay cold, not just hot!

P.S Also put some ice in the thermos to have extra coldness.

    Mostly because the answer to the question wasn't a lifehack. Don't blame the player, blame the game ;) Commented Sep 8, 2015 at 16:05

Instead of buying the ice cream at the start of your shift, buy it at the end of your shift. If there's some reason you can't do that, then bring a cooler filled with ice. If a cooler doesn't work, then buy a mini-freezer and bring it to work.

  • A cooler with dry ice in it works well too, but it will make the ice cream especially cold. Commented Jun 3, 2015 at 16:56
  • Not really much of a lifehack tho. Commented Jul 10, 2015 at 11:39
