For quite some time I looked for something fun to keep my water and tea cold. I loved these:
This was like most that I saw.
And this one was fun looking.
But I really didn’t want plastic even if it was BPA free. I thought I would never find one until I spotted this from Starbucks last summer.
- My Starbucks Glass.
It is double walled and does not sweat. The tumbler and straw are both stainless steel. The plastic tumblers sell for around $7 to $9. This one was $19.95. I had to have it and remember it saying limited supplies left. I grabbed it up and have been using it daily since. When I began thinking about this for my post I looked for my tumbler on-line so that others could get one if they chose. I found out when going to the Starbucks online page that this was a limited edition for 2012 and is no longer available. Not letting that discourage me, I did an online search for it. What I discovered made me wish I had bought more at the time. This Starbucks Limited Edition tumbler was being sold privately from between $80.00 and $125.00. That is absolutely crazy!! I guess I better guard this as if it were made of gold.
What do you use to keep your drinks cold? Have you found any other glasses like this that are not made of plastic?
Tonight I was looking at the Starbucks site and found this:
It is all stainless including the straw for $19.95. I need to have someone check our local Starbucks to see if they have it in the store.
