If you haven’t heard of the Coolest Cooler, you need to keep reading. It was originally a project on Kickstarter.com, the crowdfunding platform, and raised $13 MILLION DOLLARS! How can a cooler be so cool that people throw 13 million dollars at it to have it?
Well, for one, it’s a self described “Party disguised as a cooler.” Sounds pretty good, right? Here’s some of what you’ll find inside the Coolest Cooler:
- 60 quarts of space
- Built-in ice crushing blender
- Waterproof Bluetooth speaker
- USB charger
- Cooler divider/cutting board
- Bottle Opener
- LED Lid Light
- Beach Tires
Everything you could possibly ever need for your tailgate comes inside the Coolest Cooler. You can make drinks, cook, charge your phone, and keep the party going when someone inevitably spills their drink on your speakers.
They’re shipping this summer, and will come at a $485 retail price tag. While a bit hefty, it includes everything you need in one space, and promises to revolutionize how you tailgate. Everyone will know who’s throwing the best tailgate if you have the Coolest Cooler. Check out the Kickstarter page for updates and more information here:
