WHILE I WAS in the United States of America, the Lone Wolf, Cheese Princess, her sister, Bret, and I were staying at an old beach shack on Pawleys Island, SC, (Town Hall shown on right). That alone was Heaven on Earth as well as a slice of Southern authenticity, but on top of that, one of our perks was having a cabinet full of our favorite drinking glasses.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, these are the famous Tervis Tumblers. Oh, how I've coveted actually having some in Paris. I love them so.
Do you know them? If not, may I introduce you to the best everyday drinking glass in existence, which, by the way, happens to have double-walled insulation so they never sweat and make a mess? And most of all, they keep your drinks crispy cold!
Excellent facts from the company:
What are Tervis Tumblers made of?
Tervis Tumblers are constructed of a high-quality polymer. This polymer is over 10 times more impact-resistant than other plastics, making Tervis Tumblers virtually indestructible!
Where are Tervis Tumblers made?
We are proud to say that Tervis tumblers have been made in the USA* since 1946! Each tumbler is carefully hand-assembled to meet our high-quality standards.
Can I return my defective tumblers for replacement at any time since Tervis Tumblers are guaranteed for life?
Tervis Tumblers are made for life*. Should your Tervis Tumbler become defective in any way, simply send it to Tervis for free replacement, even if it has been over 40 years since you purchased it! No proof of purchase required – If it says Tervis on the bottom, that’s proof enough for us!
Who can believe these drinking jewels were created in 1946? It actually took me decades to discover them, and even then and for years I didn't own any. But now, I'd like to have them in several sizes plus I yearn for an ice bucket.
Nevertheless, I only brought four of the 16-ouncers home on this trip. My suitcases were too full, and I'd already spent too much money to indulge in a full set of twelve.
Now, if I could just find some ice in France.
