Um, nope. Now my turn to ask a question: What gave you the idea that something like this would be needed or wanted? Just wondering...

As stated above if you have a freezer and an ice tray this "idea" is unneeded.

Sounds like spam/advertising for item to me.

We had a Snoopy Sno-Cone machine in the 70's. That's all I need. :)

I have always craved ice since I was little. I thought it would be nice to have a kitchen tool to produce colorful frozen treats all at once and ready to serve immediately!

Doctors use the term "pica" to describe craving and chewing substances that have no nutritional value — such as ice, clay, soil or paper. Craving and chewing ice (pagophagia) is often associated with iron deficiency anemia, although the reason is unclear.
I'm not saying you do or don't have this but it might be prudent to get some blood tests from your doctor. Maybe nothing at all.

Thanks, I do have iron-deficiency anemia… but didn’t know it relates to my addition to ice!

It is market research done by a company in the business of doing that. Spam is a perfectly adequate description.
