Unitasker Wednesday: The Fizz

I’ve never been a huge fan of ice cream floats, but apparently there are enough people out there who love them so much that they need the ability to have one on-the-go. The Fizz is a contraption that you fill with ice cream and then attach to a bottle of your favorite soft drink. There is no need to use a glass you already have when you also own this new, very specialized device! The Fizz allows you to mix your soft drink into your ice cream and sip the contents as you go about your day. The kids in the video seem like they just can’t get enough!

The Fizz can make your child as happy as the kids in the video or make us adults feel like a kid again. Either way, your ice cream float will never be the same. You can purchase a six-pack of these cups for $10, or go crazy and opt for a case for $108! 

Thanks to reader Brooke for bringing this unitasker to our attention.

**Each week, the Unitasker Wednesday column humorously pokes fun at the unnecessary, single-use items that manage to find their way into our homes.

    I’m relatively new to the website. Have you ever featured the “Tiddy Bear” on Unitasker Wednesday?


    I saw it on The Soup a few years ago and apparently Ellen Degeneres has had it on her show as well. You can’t make this stuff up.

    Interesting…. Just what the world needs; another novelty device!

    Meaningless trivia: In Australia we call ice cream floats ‘Spiders’.

    Buying a case of specialized plastic cups instead of just pulling a glass out of the cupboard seems a little wasteful and cluttery to me…

    @Demis — All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes.

    We had these when I was a kid in the early 1960’s. They didn’t screw on, of course, because the pop bottles were glass then. They were fun the once or twice we got to use them, but then they disappeared! Smart adults lurked around our house… LOL

    I *love* Unitasker Wednesdays! I expect many of us laughing at this junk do indeed possess some of the items, if only because somebody clueless or desperate gave them to us as holiday gifts.

    What will they think of next? How inovative!

    I love Unitasker Wednesdays, but I think the fun is from laughing at the ridiculousness of the junk we all accumulate in our homes and the absurd fact that the American economic system has allowed these items to develop into profitable products, not from the fact that the items featured only perform one function. It’s too entrenched to change it, but if you were just starting this now I might suggest calling it something else.

    I love Unitasker Wednesdays too. My favourite part though is the comments from people who admit to owning and frequently using, or coveting one of the items. Not because I want to judge or laugh at them, but because it’s interesting to see how something that is junk to many people, can perfectly fill a need for someone else.

    Gosh, some of these Unitaskers have sparked me to actually buy them. I now own and use a purse hanger, for instance.

    I will pass on this fizz thingie but perhaps a Tiddy Bear…
