All right stop. Collaborate and listen...

Pinterest is back with a brand new invention -- in the form of gourmet ice cubes, which have been making quite the rounds lately.

Most of the ideas are fairly simple -- like freezing fruits and herbs in with the water -- but when I saw the itty bitty vanilla specks in this pin I knew this was the mother of all fancy ice.

The thought of using these ice cubes for iced coffee is what sealed the deal. I was smitten with the notion that I might have something lovely to drink at the end of my iced beverage rather than the usual watery mess.

Well, that and the fact that it's called vanilla ice.
