I’m sitting outside enjoying the sunshine and drinking a cold glass of water from my Tervis Tumbler. I discovered these tumblers on an annual trip to the United States a couple of years back. Not knowing what they were really about I bought a gold fish one for $15 USD. Since that time I have grown my collection to three tumblers and one mug. These have become my very favourite beverage holders.
You can buy them with lids or without. I bought my goldfish one at Meijers with a lid included and the others I have bought at a Tervis store in Frankenmuth and I chose the type and colour of the lid I wanted for these. The lids are interchangeable if the tumblers are the same size. I didn’t get a lid for my mug. I’m not a huge fan of the lids as I tend to spill more on myself than I get into my mouth. (There may be an art to using them). I did buy one that fits only a straw and I like that one so much better. The lids are handy if you are taking your cup with you in the car.
So you might be thinking why I would pay so much for one of these tumblers? Besides being adorable with hundreds of designs, these cups are durable and they keep cold beverages cold and hot beverages hot. I did a little experiment for you. I just happen to have a fish glass, so I used that against my Tervis fish tumbler! I put a giant ice cube in each glass with water and set them on the counter. I checked after half an hour and there was condensation on the fish glass and the ice cube had melted substantially.
I have used insulated cups before, but they have not held up like the Tervis ones have. I have dropped them, put them in the freezer, cleaned them in the dishwasher and they still look as good a new! On their website you can even customize your tumbler. Check out their website at www.tervis.com and see all of their awesome products. In Canada I’ve seen a good selection at Bed Bath and Beyond and their website also has an awesome selection. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.ca/store/s/tervis
