We have this soft ice machine at work and I think I’m addicted to it. It makes the little spongy nugget style of ice. I mostly just melt it in my mouth and then drink the chilly water but it’s fun to eat as well. Apparently if I had an overwhelming urge to chew the ice it may be a sign of low iron levels. I’m probably not being very kind to my teeth, I have a cup of hot tea in the morning and follow that up by a tall glass of ice water. I’m likely to shock a couple fillings out of my mouth from the constant temperature change and unfortunately this job has really crappy dental insurance.
