If that's the choice I would go with the white exterior and thicker walls. The silvered interior would reflect heat energy and retain heat inside, which is not what your want. The white exterior will reflect heat energy away, not letting it enter. That's a lilies better.
But all an insulated container can do is to slow down the Rate of heat exchange. In a few hours equilibrium is reached, and the temperature inside will be almost the same as the temperature outside the "cooler," because it isn't really a cooler.
Conclusion: you need a mini-freezer!
