"Perfect Party Cups!"

"Perfect Party Cups!"

When in the summer season i tend to stock up on plastic cups, these are great for party's especially when having barbeques outside. These cups are really cheap and also prevent you from washing up cups. When i saw these in my local Tesco store i was sure to buy them, especially with the pretty hot weather England experienced a couple of weeks back! The cups were fairly cheap and i know that i always will use them so i was happy to buy them. I purchased the cups and was very happy with them. They were great quality and were great to use. I have put my review into sections so it makes it easier to read!

What Is The Packaging Like?

The cups are packaged stacked up in a tower with a plastic packaging around them. The packaging hold the usual Tesco value logo, and the packaging is see through. The packaging is great to store the items, if you cut a hole in the top, you can pick out a cup when you want one and it keeps them all together which is fantastic. These are great just to store in the cupboard like that! If you are looking for these cups when you are at Tesco these were near the clingfilm and foil at my Tesco's!

What Are The Cups Like?

The cups are made of white plastic and are very lightweight. The cups are great to hold drinks especially at barbeques or party's. The cups are about 10cm tall which is great, and around the top are about 7cm wide. The cups hold a good amount of liquid which is great. The cups are quite thin and when squeezed they do flex so they are the thickest of cups. The cups are lightweight so when there is no liquid in them there is a risk of them flying off if they are not held down. The plastic of the cups is fairly thin so it can split if you intend on splitting it, although if you are careful they will not split. The cups can be used again if you want another drink or to wash them out for another time, although they are around 2p per cup so i don't feel that it is worth it. The cups are fantastic for all ages which is brilliant. The cups themselves are plain white which is quite boring but good enough for me, if you like a bit of colour however these cups might not be for you. Overall i think these cups are fantastic and therefore if i was to rate them i would give them 9/10 because i feel that the durability could be a little better.

What Are They Good For?

These cups are perfect for party's are my title suggests. These cups don't brake, and therefore are good for all ages. The cups are lightweight and hold a great amount of liquid. The cups are great for party's because they have a low price, a high quality and can be disposed of straight the way for a fast clear up and no mess. The cups are also fantastic for childrens parties when you don't want them to have a usual cup, they are easy for the children to hold, and if dropped they do not brake. These cups are also great for picnics. These cups can be carried around easily due to there light weight, and then can be disposed of straight the way to avoid carrying them back to where you came from. Overall i think these cups have alot of uses and thats why they are great!

Where do you buy them from?

As the name of the product suggests i bought these cups from Tesco. Tesco have two types of these plastic cups, they have 25 packs and 100 packs. The price is really cheap as i will list below along with a link you can buy them from;

  • 25 Pack Of Plastic Cups = £0.59 (approx 2p per cup)
  • 100 Pack Of Plastic Cups = £2.16 (approx 2p per cup) 'or'​etails/?id=253510928


Overall if i was to purchase some products like this again i would definitely buy these cups from Tesco. They have a great quality, hold a good amount of liquid, and are very cheap. They are widely available at most Tesco stores and if not i am sure other supermarkets offer very similar products at very similar prices. I would 100% recommend these cups!

    We found them a bit floppy for little ones - they squeezed and the cups spilled
