These cups are strong, hold lots of beverages, and they don't break into pieces if dropped at a party or on concrete surface. Actually helps keep beverage cooler in the blistering Texas heat. Awesome cups, better than many with much higher costs.
I had to buy cups for an event I was attending. Went to a certain store to get SOLO cups, which is the only kind I'll buy. The store had another similar (but NOT) brand, but not my favorite SOLO. I was real short on time so, I bought the other brand thinking they might be alright. How wrong I was. Although the cups appeared somewhat similar, they were no where close to SOLO. I had leftover's of the other cupsl, & put them away for awhile. I pulled them out of storage the other day to use them, only to get rid of them. I had to use 2 of the other cup for it to be as sturdy as one SOLO cup. I finally got rid of those, & went & purchased several SOLO cups to keep on han, as well as use. I will NEVER, EVER, buy, or use any other brand but SOLO. I'm totally a SOLO kinda gal. I love SOLO cups!
