Grab your brain mittens for this one (that is what the Jack n’the Box cup says, whatever the fuck that means).
I when to a Vietnamese restaurant and ordered a Vietnamese coffee they gave it to me in the left cup.
The lid is a sticker that seals the top of the cup completely. In my mind this is far superior than the American “lids” that we use (in the right).
1) The cup is sealed until you are ready to drink it, this seal keeps the contents fresher and in the cup. when you are ready to break the seal, the contents are less likely to spill around the straw, plus the lid will not come off.
2) It is so much less plastic.
I started questioning the wastefulness of the cup usage in America and started to question why can’t we switch to the more efficient cups and lids. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why this would be a problem to the consumer, until it dawned on me!
Americans love the fountain drink and all the refills they can get.
