Ah sweet summer time, can you remember one going by without the ubiquitous red Solo cups of our childhood being a part of the celebration? These sturdy cups have long been a favorite with hostesses everywhere because they'll hold up through several refills throughout the day and can be simply tossed out at the end. They won't break if knocked over and you don't have to wash them. They're a entertaining staple of busy moms all year round.
We recently used one of Solo's new line of cups Solo Squared™, designed for a more comfortable and reliable hold, at a recent family get together. We found that Solo Squared™, a first-of-its-kind squared single-use cup, really is easier to grasp and hang onto while your trying to juggle your plate of food and drink after you load up and are on your way to the table.
They helped make lunch and dinner preparation and clean up a snap. I especially liked them because I have small hands and when ice begins to melt and the glass gets wet and slippery it can be harder to hang on to it. The square design with indentations was a much more comfortable grip. Already fans of Solo Cups, these will continue to be disposable cups I purchase from now on!
To celebrate decades of great entertaining and the new Squared party cup, Solo Cup Company has launched an online photo contest with a grand prize of $5,000 for the best photo featuring a Solo Squared cup, their iconic red cup, or Ultra Colors®. You'll be able to enter your favorite photos in Solo Cup's Photo Contests until August 14 and the winners will be announced on August 21, 2009. In addition to the grand prize, two $1,000 runner-up prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest. By entering, you'll also have the chance to win daily and weekly prizes of gift certificates and Solo products.
So hurry up and go through your archives for all the pictures of you and your family and friends having fun with Solo and upload a picture to their gallery today!
