Okay, I’ve got to ask: “What’s up with Ice chewing?”
I like ice, no problem with it at all, in fact, I even like to chew ice. After I finish my drink I usually end up munching away on the ice. It is just something to do as far as I am concerned, I don’t consider it a hobby or a delicacy or anything and I am certainly not an ice conoseur or willing to go out of my way for a special type of ice (though admittedly of all of my friends I am the one most likely to make an out-of-the-way journey to some random location for a special type of ice).
Apparently though there is a rather large community of Ice-eaters, folks who are very serious about their ice, some going as far as to have special ice machines installed in their homes or willing to go to specific restaurants for specific types of ice. The Wall Street Journal just ran an article on Ice Chewing and from there I even learned about a website specifically for ice chewers (though I am not sure why this surprises me, there are websites for pretty much everything).
If there are any ice chewers out there reading this over could you explain this craze to me? Is ice you version of a low-fat snack? A quick cool down? Do you consider yourself an ice chewer? Or is just something you do and realized other people have the same obsession?
Then there are all the questions about the ice itself…
