The metal coolers of the 1990s were awfully problematic, according to Amanda Fantin. She said the heavy ice-filled bins were prone to rusting, and didn't handle falls too well. There had to be a better way to keep ice frozen and drinks cold.
Luckily, there was. Fantin said her dad stumbled across a spray-on product that could insult a plastic bin like no other. Now, 15 years later, the local entrepreneur has purchased a new machine to complete the job, and is putting the Colder Boulder on the map.
She recently brought her coolers — a smaller one that fits 12 beer, and a larger one that fits 24 — on to the Dragon's Den. While the results won't be released until the episode airs this fall, she said “they loved it.”
Fantin said the Colder Boulder is not only more durable than traditional coolers, but it's also lighter, floats even when full and can keep ice frozen for up to 100 hours. On top of that, it also serves
as an extra seat around the campfire.
“I always say its the last cooler you'll ever buy,” Fantin said.
Colder Boulders are available from Ramakko's for $49.99 to $69.99. For more information, visit facebook.com/colderboulder.
