The Find: a set of ice cream cups that are 100 per cent carb-free
American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale) once scolded his secretary, Jean, for nearly placing her spoon on his coffee table, instead of inside an empty Haägen Dazs carton. We’ve used coasters and remained cautious about drips at dinner parties ever since. But now we no longer have to worry about angering potentially homicidal clean freaks—or even the meticulously tidy people in our lives—because we found these Japanese art deco–inspired ice cream sets at the Drake General Store, with cups that perfectly fit their matching spoons, preventing unexpected spills. The cups are sold as a set of five, each with its own unique pattern, which kind of reminds us of wine-glass charms that help us ensure we’re drinking our own malbec and not someone’s inferior merlot. Only now, five people can enjoy their favourite ice cream without the extra carbs from a cone or the shame from eating out of the tub over the sink. $85 for a set of five.
