Tesco Value Plastic Cups
Disadvantages: very thin plastic
I purchased a packet of 25 plastic cups from the Tesco Value range for 55p in the run up to Christmas. These were by far the best value disposable cups I could find at around 2p per cup and as I really just needed them for a standby to offer guests if all other options were out (i.e. in the dishwasher), these suited my needs perfectly. As it worked out, I was glad to have purchased them as we had a few extra guests over the festive period.
The cups come in simple packaging - stacked on top of each other and covered in a clear plastic bag with basic labelling. They are the same design as most plastic cups - with a ridged central area for added grip. They are lightweight and made of quite a thin white plastic.
We used a fair few of these, mainly for soft/fizzy drinks. They held a decent amount of liquid and were quite easy to hold and drink from. The rim isn't too thick so they sit nicely on your lip and are easy to drink from. They are quite thin and feel pretty fragile so if grasped too tightly they will indent and force liquid up - I perhaps would not give these to children (also for fear that the plastic may crack or split to give a sharp edge). We also used these when bowls ran out to hold nuts etc so they are multi purpose!
I would purchase these again as a standby but, if purposely planning to use disposable cups for a party/barbecue etc, I would rather opt for a slightly more expensive version. The plastic is just a little too thin for my liking and, whilst we experienced no problems with this, I would much prefer a slightly more robust cup. I guess it really depends on what the intended use is - these would be perfect for sports days or drinks stand on marathons etc where you drink from them once and discard. For the price paid, they are good value and I can't really complain.
