Let me just say that I love my cup, and I love being part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program!
I've been trying to drink more water again instead of just sipping coffee all day, and this cup has actually enabled me to do so. It's kind of weird, but it's the perfect size for my hand, balanced in weight so it's not the least bit clumsy, and it works well for me because I don't drink out of bottles (bottles are for babies).
I've tested both hot and cold drinks in this cup. I like to sip green tea at night, but usually by the time I get to the bottom of the mug it's cold, not so with this cup! Now I can have a bigger cup of tea and it stays hot.
Same with cold drinks; they stay cold. I drink filtered water from the fridge and no matter if it takes me ten minutes or an hour to drink, the water keeps that crisp coldness. Refreshing!
A little more about the tumbler: they're almost indestructible. I haven't tested this yet, but I think I have dropped it on the floor. I certainly wouldn't run it over with my car...It won't melt - although I bet it would if you put it on a hot stove burner. It's probably referring to putting hot liquids in it...Also, it won't shatter, crack or chip. I'll leave the hatchet and hammer in the garage and just go along with that. On the bottom it says the tumbler is dishwasher safe, although I'm sure that's a fast way for any of the printing to wear off. I don't believe this belongs in the microwave, therefore I will never try.
There is one negative - not a big deal - it says it's a 16oz cup, but it really only holds about 13 maybe 14 oz to the brim, 12 oz if you live in Realityville. I think the 16 oz could apply if it wasn't an insulated cup. Meaning, the outer layer can hold 16 oz if there was no inner layer. Again, not a big deal to me, but it was something I discovered as I was measuring how many of these I'd have to drink to get enough daily water (my target is 64 oz a day starting).
Swing by the Tervis Website and browse their products. Their tumblers come in different shapes and sizes, and while they may seem a little expensive for "just a cup" I think they're actually quite reasonable compared to similar products you might find in a department store. Not to mention Tervis are likely much better quality, they have many designs to choose from, or you can personalize your own Tumbler. Think Christmas gifts!
Thank you Foodbuzz, and thank you Tervis.:)
