    Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

    Fun design but the lid smells...well like silicone! It kind of kills the taste. Perhaps with a few more washings it will smell less. Seeing that it has no handle, it fits well in the car cup holder. It is not hot to the touch either.

      Comments about The Original I Am NOT A Paper Cup:

      Gave this as a gift to a disposable cup user, in the hopes that he would like the heft of the cup and the feel of the cover. It had to feel right, fit the cupholder, not have plastic in the lid, etc., etc. (picky...). All reports are good, the pickiest person in the world loves his cup, and can now stop buying hundreds of disposables! Yay!

        I bought this as a gift for my friend with a very long commute. My only complaint is that it does not hold a lot of coffee.

        This cup is great for my husband to take his morning tea to work; I especially love the silicone lid which is easy to clean and doesn't collect residue like other travel cups. The only complaint is that it could hold more.
