Plus Adam often goofs up and makes other comments during the ads… I still FF once in a while, but mostly not. The canned ones at the beginning/end of the shows, I 30 second skip past on my phone.)
Have you ever tried to get a dozen roses for $19? Yeah that works on the side of the road but the places online that is just to get you in the door. Then they tack on the box, wrapping them and you can pay $20 more for a vase. Then on top of all that you get to pay for shipping. I tried to pay $20 for roses once with shipping and packaging it was almost $55.

Even if you can find some online examples of $20 roses, it sill pales in comparison to the ice cream gift, IMO. Don't forget, this isn't just some stock flavor of ice cream you send to someone. It's a customized flavor, based on what you think they would like, complete with a customized flavor name and label. It's a great idea, and again, comparing to store bought ice cream, yes, it's pricey, but comparing it to something more comparable like an edible arrangement, I don't think it's outrageously priced at all, and a much nicer gift.

I did agree that it would be easy for a localized company to come in and take over due to lower/no shipping costs.

Agree, I'd rather receive my own custom ice cream flavor (make mine coffee,Dulce de leche, dark chocolate and pecans and call it Coffee Nutter please ; ) than some frou frou edible arrangement or flowers.

I hate when Cuban does his "24 second shot clock". He is such a bully. He forces someone to make a huge decision like that under duress just so he can prohibit the other sharks from getting a chance to make an offer or counter.


$80 for ice cream is ridiculous. Gift or not.

I'd like to see somebody use it against him or the other Sharks and say "I'm taking his offer right now unless one of you Sharks chimes in right now and beats it.".

i saw many times that is tossed to the wind and he really doesnt follow it...also the fubu dude also says stuff like that all the time..i have an offer but you say yes to it now...he is a bully under your definition

also we really dont know the duration of these things..could be 30 min each..like in the apprentice..boardrooms were hours, not 20 min.

You can do this with Android already, and you don't need 'cateapp' to do it.
