Tumblers...Made in the U.S.A.

My friend Gail tipped me off to these fantastic tumblers. She knew I was on a quest for "made in the U.S.A." stuff and so she told me about these and how much she loves them. These are Turvis Tumblers! I went to the website and was pulled in. They seemed a little pricey, but what really got me to bite was the fact that these babies have a LIFETIME GUARANTEE! No kidding! If one ever fails...you just mail it back and they mail you a new one. No receipt, no questions, no nothing required. Just the tumbler! Wow! It doesn't get any better than that.

Oh wait! It does get better. They have these cute embroidered patches layered inside the double walled glasses and you can get just about anything. I ordered this John Deere glass for our little friend Ben. He likes to ride the tractor with Ted whenever he can flag him down. The funny thing is, after I picked out this glass for him, I had second thoughts and invited him to pick out his own (without showing him what I had picked for him). Despite the tons of designs to choose from and the three different John Deere glasses, he picked the EXACT same one! (He has good taste.)

I also had Ben help me pick out a glass for his little sister. He picked out the rose because that is his sister's middle name. Rose! What a sweetie! He and his sister are Cute with a capital "C!"

I also wanted to order his parents some glasses, too. I got them both one like the K-State glass on the far right. I also got one for the hubby since that was his alma mater. As a KU girl, let me tell you that I had a really hard time not getting KU glasses for everyone. But alas! I want them to actually use the glasses...so I relented. (Turvis has all of the collegiate teams.) I have been proudly using my KU glass today and can honestly tell you that my tumbler has passed the cold test. It did not sweat with ice water. I haven't given it the hot test yet, but they say they are also good for hot beverages, as well. My big 24 oz. glass fits in my car cup holder. You can also order these handy dandy lids for them. I can't wait to put these to the test this summer when it gets really hot outside.

  3. Ahh! I think that I might be suffering from mild dyslexia, or I was really tired last night while reading this and wasn't paying attention. My fault- and yes, Ben and Ellie "are" cute. lol
