If you’ve always been really specific about your ice, we’re here to confirm that, no, you’re not out of your mind. And actually, there’s a whole community on TikTok that would agree. Let us fill you in on a TikTok trend: #TheGoodIce. It’s that small, chewable type of ice known as nugget ice that absorbs the flavors of your drink and somehow makes your bev simply…better. It’s the kind you might find at a restaurant that your fridge and silicone ice molds just can’t make.

And while this particular kind of ice has been around for a while, the reason it’s popping up everywhere is because people are catching on to the fact that you can make it at home—with the GE Profile Opal Nugget ice maker, of course. Better yet, you can snag the machine for $50 off following Amazon Prime Day 2022, which is an impressive discount for a device that makes up to 24 pounds of nugget-sized ice per day.

But don't just take our word for it. Here's why TikTokers think it's worth every penny.
