We’ve reached day 4 of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and I’m still here, but man, I could use a drink. Fortunately, as I look around me in the cave, I see plenty of cups and glasses to hold the drink of choice. Let’s take a closer look at a few examples…
This Planet of the Apes cup would have been my favorite cup for watching Saturday morning cartoons back in the day.
For a kid with a Hulk-sized thirst is this plastic Hulk cup from 1977.
I have a few different Batman cups in the collection. There are other designs out there, and the hunt is definitely on!
Alright, this might not be a cup, but I can’t think of anything better to go in a kid’s cup than Superman Hot Cocoa — with NutraSwet!
When you gotta go to school, you need a cool lunch box and matching thermos — NOTHING beats the 1966 Batman thermos in my book.
But then again, this Planet of the Apes thermos is pretty sweet too.
For a tall glass of soda, what could be better than a Burger King Star Wars glass?
Okay, I may be a little biased but I like to sip my iced tea from this tall Batman Pepsi glass.
Speaking of soda, check out these cool Halo 3 and 4 Mountain Dew cans. After several of the cans exploded in the case, I learned that emptying soda cans before storing them away is preferred!
After a long day at the office, King Kong and I spend some quality time together. I really would have loved to be in on the meeting at Jim Beam headquarters when they determined this was a good idea for a whiskey decanter. Sheer. Genius.
All of these drinking cups and glasses come together to form an unintended collection when presented as a whole. I never set up to collect drinking vessels, but when you acquire enough stuff, these strange sub-collections magically form, and I think that’s kind of great. Have you ever realized you had an accidental collection?
Day 4 of the A-to-Z Challenge is done! Yesterday, we covered C is for Cars and today was all about drinking — not necessarily the best pairing. Check back tomorrow to see how it all turns out with our friend, the letter “E.”
That’s a solid variety of mugs (and other drinkware, of course)!
I’m curious – what year was that superman cocoa from?
The copyright date on the can says 1983, and I’m sure the contents are just as fine today as the day it was made!
I still have Aqua-Man and Empire Strikes back glasses from 7-Eleven… some of my prized pieces.
Very Nice Post… but you know that, that’s why you posted it! Right!
Welcome in the letter “D”… thank you!

“I learned that emptying soda cans before storing them away is preferred!”
Something I learned the hard way too! Kind of my accident, I’ve amassed a small collection of comic-themed soda cans from the last 16+ years. I kept them full until a few started to leak. They’re much lighter and easier to store, now that they’re empty.
Do you use the pinhole trick? It takes a bit more effort than just popping the top, but the result is an empty can that looks like a full one. Heres a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SkjRiHv79w
Not exactly but, something similar. I put two small holes (at 12:00 and 6:00) on the bottom side of the can. Then you let it drain & rinse with a little water. The holes are inside the lip so, aren’t visible when it’s being displayed.
Picked up that trick from an old eBay forum article.
