One of the many cool things about working on Johnny’s House was that we got a lot of exposure to new/ trendy products out there. I’ll never forget one morning we got a call from the front office saying we had a delivery. When I went down the hall I met the sweetest girl, Kim, who was carrying a GIANT basket of bright-colored cups. It was then I learned about Corckcicle, and our love affair began.
Why I’m A Corkcicle Fan
1) They are local.
Based out of Orlando, Corkcicle began with a design to keep wine cool without using an ice bucket. They have since expanded their products to canteens, coolers, and a variety of barware products. One of their recent collaborations was with Rifle Paper Co. out of Winter Park, and my heart just about burst with all the local Central-Florida goodness!!!!
2) They are Earth friendly.
We all know the cardboard straw struggle. They get soggy real quick and melt into a million paper pieces. That’s why I use the Corkcicle aluminum straws with their clear lids. Zero plastic (or paper) necessary.
3) They are cute.
Between all their collaborations, you’re guaranteed to find a design you like. My dad sticks to the classic black and blue colors, while my friends and I are drawn to the “Unicorn Magic” line (#millennials). I also am a fan of the tall, thin design of Corkcicle because I can fit them in my car cupholders. Plus the flat sides make gripping them easier unlike other brands of reusable cups. And did I mention they are cute?
4) They freaking work.
I’ll never forget the first time I discovered the magic of Corkcicle. Let me tell you…to leave a cup out overnight, or in a hot Florida car, and come back to see your ice still fully intact is mind-blowing. Here’s my tweet from 2016 to prove it.
