Stainless Steel Sipping Tumbler, 20 fl oz
Don't like the insides
I do NOT like the straw thing at all! Too hard to clean!

Intended for COLD beverages, works wonderfully
For all those dissatisfied users complaining about the fact that there is a straw and this doesn't keep their hot drinks steamy, this is NOT intended for use with hot beverages.
For those of you looking to find the perfect cold cup for iced coffee, iced tea, frap's, smoothies, shakes, heck, even ice water, buy it now. Get it online, or run to your local Starbucks.
I seriously love this cup. I am a straw and ice water/ iced tea snob. I have one or the other with me at all times. I keep this cup on my nightstand at night, toss it in my purse or diaper bag, put it in the side pocket of my backpack when on day trips or hikes, and the ice lasts FOREVER. I fill it with ice, and then refill from a water bottle or drinking fountain or fridge etc depending on where I am, and the ice keeps my drink nice and cold, just the way I like it.
One tip: keep an eye on the little opaque white seal just underneath the top of the straw where it closes; if you lose it, your cup will no longer be waterproof, and mine has slipped out a few times when cleaning. As far as I can tell, this is the only design flaw I've encountered after months of using this cup (I purchased it in May, seven months ago.)
It fits in my stroller's parent cup-holder, fits in our van's cup holders, and it is stylish and sleek. I just may buy a second (and third?) in the event that Starbucks stops carrying them, I love it that much.
Happy cold-coffee, iced-tea, iced-water, frappe', shake, smoothie drinking!

too hard to clean the sticky, messy drinks I love. Also, ordered for hot drinks and won't work due to flex plastic.
Think Starbucks marketing REALLY blew it this season. 100% drink cups in stores are either for cold drinks and/or Grande size - no other choices. I want Venti ALWAYS and hot drink cups/mugs for cold weather.

It's really awesome.
I rarely write review. This is the second product review I do within 2 or more years. It's just really awesome. It's super great with blended Frappuccino. I use it everyday, so I'm just going to review it with ice-blended coffee. So, here is why it's awesome:
1. It's neat. With ice-blended coffee, you can't just have it in the bottle/non-straw tumbler, open the cap and drink it. It's always stuck in the bottle, so you need a straw. Plastic straws would work it out, but they become messy when you have a full Venti-size cup filled and maybe with sticky caramel. Well, this solves the problem.
2. It's clean. Cold-cup stumbler could also solve the problem no. 1 cleanly, but their straws are sticking out. Maybe I have a little OCD problem. I just really hate it when some insects fly around and you don't know if they have landed on the straw or maybe something from them air-dropped into the straw. OK, maybe I do have lots of OCD. My point is you can just close the straw down with this tumbler.
3. It's safe. If you accidentally drop the tumbler cup, your drink is done. If you intentionally drop this tumbler, you're drink is still there in the tumbler. Maybe you just need to clean up its outside and some drops on the cap. Imagine the drink is Caramel Frappuccino, good luck cleaning up caramel on the floor.
4. It's packed with what you crave. It prevents the coffee from rushing to complete liquid mode. Again, good for ice-blended coffee. Also, the caramel stays all at the bottom instead of all over its wall by the time you finish your drink. No messy clean up.
So, precisely: It's clean. It's neat. It's safe. It's packed with what you crave ;)
Drawback: I don't like its color. It looks like what my great grandma would crave. If the textures are in silver color and background is red, it would be ultimately perfect, and great with X-mas holiday spirit too. Maybe I'm too excited for X-mas :)
Well, I give it 5 stars anyway for its awesome quality.
