I wish I invented these things. The standard cup at Starbucks is nothing exciting.. until it gets into my car’s cupholder, where every bump sends a scolding geyser of coffee rocketing up towards my face. Whee!
These slick stirrer/plug things help stop the burning joe from ruining my car and my temper. Oddly, my Starbucks doesn’t HAVE them – so I have to keep this one in the car at all times.
Fortunately I only need it on those Venti days – usually I bring my handy spill-proof Oxo travel mug and get a discount.
