“Nigerians changed my life the moment they started using me to store other food items…” – A message from the Ice cream container.

On this weeks edition of Thinking food 24/7 My Cookery Zone got a message from the Ice cream container. Ice cream container complained bitterly about it’s usage in most Nigerian homes.

Dear My Cookery Zone,
I am delighted to finally be writing you this week. I suggested the writing and you approved it for this I am grateful.

My purpose seems to have changed, my life plan isn’t going as it should because people have drifted from the initial plan I was made for. In the early stage of my life,  I am used to being stored with different and delicious flavoured creams ranging from coffee, chocolate, and strawberry not leaving out the all-time favorite vanilla flavor.

But, this plan to continue using my container to store ice cream seems to have taken a whole different turn. Nigerians changed my life the moment they started using me to store other food items like locust beans, leftover foods, and their batch-cooked meals. They prefer using my container to store these meals in their freezers as compared to using Tupperware or other containers.

All I  know is ice-cream containers have really suffered and we demand a form of consolation. Is it from the disappointment people who are unaware face when they expect to see ice cream in us or the embarrassment we the containers have encountered over time? We really deserve a form of consolation and as well a consensus with those who use our container to store meals. I really can’t say my life will return back to how it always was because this has gone way too long.
