Ice-Cream Lid Lock from Ben & Jerry’s

I can’t believe the press release. Aside from allowing someone to remove the bottom of a pint and replace it without detection (not that I know anything about that), a small plastic lid lock from Ben & Jerry’s costs almost twice as much as a pint of their ice-cream:

The Euphori-Lock is a tenacious two-part plastic security ring that slips around your pint’s upper lid for “udder” peace of mind. And not to worry – it comes complete with an easy-to-remember secret code when you’re ready to unlock your favorite treat!

An easy-to-remember secret code? What could go wrong? I mean for $6.64 I expect a plastic ring to have alpha-numeric upper-lower case code with symbols and more than eight characters. And that’s not to mention a motion-sensor, failed-access alarm and log…where’s the USB port or Bluetooth so it can communicate with my kitchen’s incident and event monitor?
