Disposable plastic cups can be used in households, for picnics, parties, or large events. They are most commonly used to hold sodas or other beverages at events, but may also be used to hold popcorn, candy, or party favors. They can be purchased in grocery stores, drugstores, discount retail stores, and by ordering them online.

Options for Disposable Plastic Cups

Disposable plastic cups can be made from many different plastic types and thickness levels. Plastic foam cups are great insulators for warm beverages such as coffee, hot chocolate, espresso, and hot apple cider. Thin plastic cups are typically used for cold beverages such as sodas, beer, or water. These cups typically have ridges on the sides of each cup to prevent your fingers from slipping while you are holding a cup.

Plastic cups can also be found in different colors to match the theme of your event. Plastic cups that hold warm beverages are typically white in color, but other types of plastic cups are available in a large variety of colors. The most common color choices for plastic cups are red, blue, and yellow.

Disposable plastic cups are available in a variety of sizes and usually fall between 8 oz. and 16 oz. Larger and more durable plastic cups, also known as stadium cups, can be found in 22 oz. and 32 oz. sizes as well. Stadium cups are often ordered in bulk amounts from websites so they can be customized. They can be printed with company logos, names of events, graphics, or information.
