Here is an old ad showing the Penguin doing it's thing! I, honestly, never knew it was anything but an ice bucket either until I came across this ad. The penguins on it kinda say 'cold server'. However, showing up at a potluck with your hot or cold foods in this presentation would be so awesome! Why not just show up with ice in it? At first , maybe the host will be pissed, but when they see the cool penguin container... You'll be the hit of the party! That's my plan anyway!
Thanks so much for all the comments and sharing your nostalgia. I love reading it!
