It sometimes feels like Mother Nature’s stupid prank that summer must be so hot. Though I personally maintain there’s never a bad time for it, I concede coffee’s prime season effectively ended when the Kansas City Royals threw out the season’s first pitch. But with the days of cold drinks upon us come all the ever-present challenges.
The biggest fountain drinks practically never fit car cup holders, and over-icing to keep drinks cold means less to drink, and a watered-down beverage when the excess ice eventually melts. Canned thirst-quenchers heat seemingly too fast to savor them in the sun, but koozies can be so tacky, prone to wear-and-tear, and as ill-equipped to a cup holder as a Big Gulp.
That Thermos, the masters of keeping beverages the very temperatures God and Man intended them to be, should cure these specific summertime blues doesn’t shock me at all. These stainless steel can koozies – sold in sets of two – might be the last word you need in keeping on-the-go cold stuff cold.
Patented double-walled TherMax vacuum insulation will chill a cold beer or soda can up to three hours, but the exterior stays warm enough that you won’t have to worry about freezing a single finger off. More importantly, it will go wherever you go – ballpark, car, barbeque, wherever – with a durable scratch-resistant base and dimensions designed to fit most cup holders.
Here’s to you, Mother Nature. Bring it, bitch!
