If you’ve ever had the misfortune to drop your brand new iced coffee only moments after stepping out of the shop, you’re not alone. It’s devastating and infuriating and it’s not an experience you want to repeat. Thankfully, you can pretty much guarantee that it will never happen because Dunkin’ has unveiled a line of PopSocket sleeves that will give you a firm grip until your cup is empty.
- PopSockets are usually for phones, obviously. I have one on my iPhone Plus and wouldn’t be without it – I literally don’t know how I wasn’t dropping my phone 24/7 before I had it! Adapting that “technology” if you will to other areas like they’ve done with Dunkin’ here is pretty awesome, I think.
- They’re actually called PopThirst cup sleeves. PopSockets and Dunkin’ teamed up to make these pop-out sleeves that fit around your iced coffee cup. You can then grip beneath the popped out button as you would on your fun and ensure your cup stays firmly in your hand.
- There are only two designs to choose from. You can pick one that has a strawberry frosted donut design PopTop or a coffee-themed one, and both are pretty great, even if the concept does feel a little strange at first.
- They’ll actually keep your coffee cold for longer. Even if you do manage to keep a hold on your iced coffee, when it’s hot out, the longer you’re holding the cup, the faster your ice is going to melt. The sleeve of Dunkin’ and PopSocket’s PopThirst is apparently temperature controlled so your drink will stay cooler for longer. Always a plus!
- They’re limited edition and for a good cause. Sadly, these aren’t going to be permanently available, but while they are, you should feel good about knowing that 50% of all sales will benefit the child hunger relief organization Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. For $20, that’s a good investment! “This joint effort is sure to make many Dunkin’ and PopSockets fans happy while helping to support the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation’s mission of providing the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness,” said Kari McHugh, Executive Director or the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “This ‘Poptivism’ program will make a big impact to help bring joy to kids who need it the most.”
