Ice is a fickle substance—it keeps its cool when faced with an army of parched cocktail glass-holders but melts instantly when greeted by a smiling sun. Explore ice's elusive nature with today's Groupon: for $10, you get 12 bags of self-service ice from Padre Ice LLC. Customers can redeem their ice at any of the six locations.
Padre Ice's fully automated frost factories dispense 20-pound bags of clean, fresh-chipped ice 24 hours a day year-round. Customers can journey to one of the company's five commercial parking-lot locations, where automated shoots instantly fill coolers with the glacial sustenance needed to fuel parties or backyard ski jumps. Chips are produced by 100% food-grade stainless steel materials and never handled by human hands, making them highly sanitary, safe, and starved for affection.
