Starbucks To-Go Cold Cup Tumbler: Love It or Hate It?

Even before my afternoon stint as a barista, I was an enthusiastic fan of Starbucks. I go there on an almost daily basis, and often bring in my reusable Starbucks "to go" tumbler. When I first bought it, I had the manager at my local store use a Sharpie to scribble shorthand for my regular order on the side (genius!).

This Summer, Starbucks developed an even edgier tumbler for the warm weather: a cold to-go cup, complete with green straw, constructed in clear lucite. It sold out almost immediately, and is now being sold on eBay for as much as $50 a pop. What do you think of it: impractical or brilliant?

I didn't realize these were uncommon.. the Starbucks in the Middle East have had these for a few years now. Probably 'coz it's $%!* hot and the iced drinks tend to sell all year round..

I think I was lucky and walked into my local Starbucks on the day they first put them out. I live in Boise so I don't think it has become such a hot commodity here yet. :)

I saw them at every Starbucks I went to in Asia this summer. I guess they're not that popular over there. I personally would not buy one. I don't have cold drinks on the go often enough to justify purchasing one.

I bought one of these at a random Starbucks in Concord, CA like 6 months ago... how is that exclusive?

I don't understand why it's so exclusive. These things have been all over the Starbucks in Manhattan since early spring. I was so tempted, but I don't carry around cold drinks other than water.

I love it! I have the "We Are Happy to Serve You" cup from Urban Outfitters, but this one is way better! (And I'm not even a huge Starbucks fan.)

I have the grande sized tumbler and I LOVE IT! My friend at work broke hers and was trying to find a new one, but saw them for $50 on Ebay and was appalled! I am so happy that I decided to buy it when I first saw it!
