Last week I was forced to answer a lot of questions, most of them were along the lines of: “Why is there a bag of frozen peas strapped to your foot with your belt?”

So, after using both an ice pack and frozen peas to treat a sprained ankle, I will know solve the age-old ice pack-versus-frozen peas debate:

FROZEN PEAS
Ability to cool injured area: 5
Value for money: 4
Long-term use as an injury-reducing aid: 2
Effective component in a stirfry: 5
Street cred: 0

ICE PACK
Ability to cool injured area: 5
Value for money: 3
Long-term use as an injury-reducing aid: 5
Effective component in a stirfry: 0
Street cred: 4

The ice pack wins. If you come to my house, don’t eat any salad.
