Putting Tervis to the Test

You've probably seen Tervis before in your local store or online and wondered, "What's so special about these plastic cups?" On a recent trip to the NFL Shop at Draft, TSR met a Tervis representative who was there to promote their new NFL designs. They definitely looked great, but then she explained what they actually do:




  • Keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold
  • Virtually unbreakable
  • Microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe
  • Reduces condensation
  • Personalized to reflect any hobby or interest

After learning this cup was in fact, no ordinary cup, TSR decided to put Tervis to the test. Does it really deliver on all these features? If so, this would be a perfect example of function meets fashion: a product that eliminates tepid drinks from daily life and does it in style.

The Test:


Special thanks to Tervis for providing a brand new
24 oz. polka dot tumbler for the product test! Go Rays!


Question #1:
How long does it keep hot drinks hot?


This is a 24 oz. tumbler, so this is about
12 oz. of instant coffee made with hot water.


Results: The coffee kept warm for about 50 minutes, plenty of time to enjoy it at a reasonable temperature. The tumbler also stayed cool to the touch, so there was no need to hold it with a sleeve or napkin.


Question #2:
How long does it keep cold drinks cold?


Since the soda was room temperature,
ice was used to chill the drink.


A full can of soda with ice
fills about 3/4 of the tumbler.


Hours later after the ice had halfway melted.


Results: The soda kept cold for hours and got even colder as time passed. Even after the ice melted, it wasn't necessary to add more.

Final Score:

4 out of 5 whistles!

Tervis is good for hot drinks, but even better for cold drinks. No getting up for more ice! Plus, it's a great statement for on-the-go sports fans in need of some subtle team flair.
