Custom Ice Cream Helmets
By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): The weather is starting to get warmer and spring training has begun! Baseball is America’s national pastime and the thought of going to the ballpark stirs up all sorts of memories. Baseball games have an air of nostalgia about them. And, let’s be honest, many of these nostalgic moments revolve around food. Whether its peanuts and Cracker Jacks, or hot dogs and beer, going to the ballpark is synonymous with eating. One of the most iconic ballpark treats we all remember? The ice cream helmets.
If you’re not familiar, this delicious treat is exactly what it sounds like. Soft serve ice cream served in a mini plastic helmet turned upside down. This minor variation on the serving bowl is, in fact, a stroke of marketing genius. Not only is the customer offered a delicious dessert perfect for a warm summer evening, but they also get to keep the helmet and take the experience home with them. It’s no wonder these mini ice cream helmets have become staples at ballparks across the country. In fact, many of these helmets have even become collectibles.
It’s not just fans that love these ice cream helmets, either. Marketers love them too! These functional, low-cost products serve a basic need while providing a fun, memorable experience. More importantly, they are easily customizable and, as we mentioned before, people often take these helmets (and your logo) home with them. Good news is that ice cream helmets are for more than just the ballpark.
