The Icee -The Frosty Cold Drink loved by millions of people from all over the world - Tasty, delicious, very icee and refreshing. Nothing can be better then that!
The first ICEE ever was invented by Omar Kendlik, in the late 1950's. He owned a Dairy Queen somewhere in Kansas, but didn't have a fountain soda at his shop. So he would buy bottles of soda and place it in a freezer! People loved the soda frozen drink and soon Mr Kendlik realized that he can make a Icee Machine for this purpose! And here his success began.
In our days there are 23-flavors of IcEe and all of them are very tasty.
Back to our subject of the Best and the Coolest bongs from all over the world - we made a research of this wonderful drink to see how we can bring it closer to our matter. And that's what we found - some people actually add the Icee drink inside of their Bongs.. instead of ice cubes. As they say it works pretty good and its more like a thick water consistence inside of your bong, however taste is a little bit weird, but worth an experiment.
But the best part of our research is this Cool Icee Bong
Anyone, who can get a big promotional Icee Cup can make a bong like this, but there is the story to this particular bong.
As someone claims, that her friend's dad worked for ICEE Company. So this friend's dad got a huge plastic display cup from work and his son got an idea to make a huge bong out of it. They don't specify the construction that they put inside of the Icee Cup (probably en extra bucket or a bottle for the ice), but he, for sure, used his high school's Trumpet Mouthpiece as an inhaling straw. He also made a hole on a side and placed a smoking bowl there. So this huge Icee Cup Bong has been traveling all over the North Carolina State from friends house to a friends house, from a party to a party. The Black Book has been traveling along with this legendary Bong, so everyone who hit it had to sign in it.
Last time this legendary bong has been seen at UNC back in 2003.
Now days no one knows if that bong is still alive and if it is, then no one can prove that it's original. But if you see the Icee Bong at your party - Hit It, because it might be the the Only One and the Coolest Big Icee Bong!
Holy Crap! That's my bong!
All of the description in the article is incorrect (maybe they were thinking of another similar bong, but the picture there is definitely mine).
I just googled "Icee Bong," and came upon this page.
Here's the real story:
I made that sucker when I was a student at UC Santa Barbara. The plastic Icee came from the snack bar at the UCSB basketball stadium, the Thunderdome. While the snackbar was closed, I hopped the counter and yanked it off the top of the Icee machine. I sliced the cord with a lamp cord and used it as a cool light-up decoration for my dorm room. We are talking 1993. During the next school year, I turned it into a bong. The whole thing does not fill with water. The "straw" that you can see goes all the way to the bottom of the Icee, then a hose comes from near the bottom up to the surface of the Icee, where you can see the bowl piece.
The bong traveled with me from Santa Barbara to Orange County, Lake Tahoe, Tucson, AZ. It is not exactly an everyday bong, but has graced many a party and has always been a great device to start a conversation or, well, get stoned! The picture above is from Lake Tahoe. It is still alive, and now is lovingly cared for by a friend in Orange County (I quit smoking a few years back), who was my roommate at UCSB way back when I made it.
I sent a picture of it to High Times magazine, and they published it as Bong of the Month in, I think September 1994. The issue has the Spin Doctors on the cover. That turned me into a local celebrity, of course!
Holy Crap! That’s my bong!
This story is clearly about a different bong, but that picture is definitely the one I built.
Here is the real story: The plastic, light-up ICEE came from the snack bar of the UC Santa Barbara basketball stadium, the Thunderdome. After some intermural volleyball at the Thunderdome, I decided I needed that ICEE, so I jumped over the snack bar, and yanked the Icee from its perch on top of the Icee machine. We are talking 1993, but I can still clearly remember pushing it back to my dorm room on my skateboard.
It lived as a decoration, casting a pleasant red glow over my room, until the next year, when I made it into a bong. From the beginning, it looked pretty much exactly as it does in the picture above. The entire ICEE is not filled with water. The straw you can see protruding from the top is a skinny bong that goes all the way to the bottom of the bong. A hose comes out of it, from near the bottom, up to the surface of the ICEE, where the bowl piece sits.
I submitted a picture of the ICEE Bong to High Times magazine, who published it as their Bong-of-the-Month in September (I think) 1994. The Spin Doctors were on the cover. I. of course, became an instant celebrity, in the right circles. The bong travelled with me from Santa Barbara to Orange County, lake Tahoe, Tucson, AZ. It is not exactly an every-day smoker, but came out at all of the parties, and was great for starting a conversation, or, well, getting stoned!
The ICEE Bong lives to this day! It is back in Orange County, under the watchful care of a trusted friend – I don’t smoke anymore – who was my UCSB roommate when I built the bong. The picture above was taken at Lake Tahoe, around 2002.
Cheers, and hope you all get to one day smoke from an ICEE!
