For everyone else, the Solo cup is the party cup, end of story. It works without any sophisticated marketing. When Leo Hulseman started Solo in , the company originally just made paper cups the pointy-bottomed kind for watercoolers. To that end, he added a series of graduated rings along the outside—rings that, fans soon noticed, corresponded handily to drink measurements 1 ounce for a shot of spirits, 5 ounces for a pour of wine, and so on. For its part, Solo insisted the rings were never meant as an alcohol pouring guide. Purists may balk, but brand manager Becca Bikoff says the new cup is more stable and easier to hold, and consumers wanted it. And what about that Toby Keith homage—the tune that, five-and-a-half years after its release, has over 48 million YouTube views?

Skip to main content Red Solo Cup. These cups are great - the crack resistant thing is for real. You can bend and smash these cups and they really wont crack on you! Fantastic idea, we love it. See All Buying Options. I love using these disposable cups for everything. I once made the mistake of going with the Hefty brand ones thinking that all red cups are created equal and boy was I wrong when I saw myself literally drinking a red tint! Lesson learned: don't go anywhere else for disposable cups. Not even Dixie has such quality. These cups are great and despite being disposable, I can use one all day long to drink or to store things!
This ordinary piece of polystyrene was never meant to be a classic
Is any single household object as inconspicuously ubiquitous as the red plastic drinking cup? That unassuming ounce chalice of moulded crimson polystyrene appears perched on every nightclub bar top, littered across the lawns of every outdoor music festival , stacked in every suburban kitchen cupboard, clenched in the firm fists of every polo-shirted undergraduate and sweating, yawping fraternity brother. The red cup is a tailgate mainstay, a cookout staple, a fixture of dinner parties and keggers; it's synonymous with flip cup, with beer pong, with debauchery and merriment and revelry. There isn't a college campus in North America that isn't teeming with them.
