One of my fondest childhood memories is the Christmas party at my aunt and uncles house. One part that remains so clear, is sitting at their table, eating cookies and fudge, and drinking chocolate milk from these neat cups that had fishing lures inside. As kids we would ask Uncle Gary how he got them in there, and he would tell us it was magic. Come to find out, it was Tervis®.
This company was founded by two engineer, who wanted to harness the power of air to insulate a drinking glass. Frank Cotter, and G. Howlett Davis came up with these cups that are permanently sealed, and keep cold drinks colder, and hot drinks hotter. They combined the past parts of their names, and Tervis® was born.
My aunt and uncle STILL have their Tervis® tumblers with the fly fishing lures inside. Now my son and his cousins drink milk and pop from them at the family Christmas. They also wonder how uncle Gary got those lures in there, and like he told us, he tells them its magic. Isn’t funny how a memory can come from something so simple, so mundane?
I love Tervis®
As you can see, I’ve always been a fan of Tervis® tumblers, even if I didn’t know it when I was eight. So when they reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try them out, I was stoked. While you won’t find one of their tumblers with an actual lure inside now, (unless you hop on Ebay, or go to my uncle Gary’s house,) they do have a throw back of this design with their Fishing Lures Wrap. My husband was going to choose that design, until he saw the Guy Harvey® Bass Camo one. (My papa was a HUGE Guy Harvey® fan, and because of that, so too is my husband.)
I myself almost got the fishing lures Tervis® tumbler, and then I saw their Autism Awareness tumbler, and I had to get that one. They also have a beautiful collection of tumblers with art designed by an autistic young man. Seriously, they are fantastic. Not only do they raise awareness, but with each sale, 5% of the proceeds goes to autism awareness and support!
