So I’d like to share with my lovely readers one of my fav kitchen products. Tervis Tumblers. I’ve snuck these into many blog posts in the past but I’ve never really talked about them. (and if you keep reading, a giveaway might just be involved!) Tervis Tumblers are sold nationwide but they are made right here in my hometown of Sarasota. A good friend of mine works over at Tervis and sent me a lovely care package last week. I literally squealed with delight when I opened it!
I’m a huge Minnesota Vikings fan. Huge. I may just be the only Florida girl that sports an Adrian Peterson Jersey in the sports bars when it’s game time, but I’m certainly proud ;) So Kim sent me a variety of their products. A bunch of tumblers, in all different sizes, and even a ice bucket! Lovin’ it! Thank you Kim!
So if you haven’t heard of Tervis, this is why they are so awesome: they are shatterproof, insulated plastic-ware. They keep beverages extra hot or extra cold, they are microwave and dishwasher safe, and they have a lifetime warranty! As in, if for some weird reason you break or chip one, you can ship it back to the Tervis factory and they will mail you a new one for free. Okay, so in the past ten years of collecting Tervis products I may or may not have had a wrestling match with a male friend in a beach parking lot and he may or may not have fallen hard onto my beach bag crushing the insides. But it took a 200 lb guy sitting on my Tervis to crack it! But I shipped it back and I got a brand new one in the mail, so no problemo ;)
But back to that lil detail about them being insulated. Because that, my dear friends, is the coolest part about them. First of all, they don’t sweat. These glasses are condensation free! You know on those super hot days when all you want is a huge glass of iced tea or iced coffee while you sit and do some blog reading at your desk or kitchen table? And then before you know it your glass starts sweating and dripping all over the place. Even if you are smart enough to use a coaster, you’ll likely get glass sweat all over your hands. Then you go to use the keyboard and you have to wipe your hands on your pants leg to get the condensation off. Ecck. We’ve all been there. Well with Tervis products you will never have that problem. You can have the coldest beverage imaginable in your Tervis Tumbler and the tumbler will never produce condensation. They are simply genius.
My favorite way to use my Tervis Tumblers is for smoothies. I can whip up a green smoothie in the morning, pop a lid on it, and take it in the car with me on the way to work or class. That way I don’t have to rush and guzzle the thing down. They also work great for coffee, tea, water, margaritas on the boat… anything, you name it. They will keep your coffee super hot for a good part of the day because of their insulation. I’ve actually left an iced tea in a baking hot Florida car before, spent a good 3 hours lounging on the beach, and returned to still find ice cubes in my Tervis. Pretty cool if you ask me ;)
