I saw these on Face Book and thought that this was kinda cool.

And while restocking on required vaca items (booze) I found them at a store. 10 of them for 4.59. So, I grabbed a box. Then noticed they were BOGO! So I got 2 boxes of them.
I like them. Though I have no doubt somebody will crush one thinking they are the solo cups. They claim they'll help keep cold beverages cooler a bit longer. If I can type later I'll let you know.
I have to test them for science sake!

Is it a double walled insulated cup? Aluminum disperses heat very well, so I wouldn't think it would keep beverages colder longer. I'd actually think it would offer less time.

These aren't meant for hot beverages, only cold. Not double walled. They claim it provides a unique cold drinking experience. Whatever that means! Once the cup is cool it might afford some extra time. Though I'm not a believer of that either.

Steve,
When I was a kid, my Great-Grandfather had a Tin cup hanging by the outside Pump, over at his farm and we also often used a Dipper to drink out of, and I swear the water always seemed colder from those things.

Also I don't know what it's made of, but the newest Miller Lite Screw-top can seems to keep the beer colder longer than the regular pull-tab cans do.

Seems like a good enough reason for an "experiment" to me....

My Paternal grandparents had a pump like that out by the milk-house with a tin cup. It also always seemed colder than the house water.
Odd because it came from the same well...

I have several metal cups that walked out of a bar with me in Rochester NY a couple years ago....I have not had a beer last long enough in them to see if they kept it colder for longer.

They probably work great. Growing up, in our Bathroom was a plain looking Stainless Steel Cup. Whether it was Science or Magic the Water out of that cup was ALWAYS Colder than what went in!...JJ

My grandparents had a well with a metal cup tied to it. The water sure did taste colder from it.

I believe it was on sodus point, might of been Cap't Jacks, we where salmon fishing for a couple days. I do remember the lake was so high that houses where flooded and all the docs were under water.

I remember those multi color aluminum cups from the '60's. They were good for cold drinks. They had some sort of anodized finish.

Yup, my parents did for picnics. They didn't have to worry about getting them broken. Though they did have dents in them. They kept the fine loony tune glasses at home.
