1. Which Paper Cup for Drink with Ice Cubes?
The video above shows iced coffee and milkshake in our 16oz paper cup. As you can see the ratio of ice to coffee for the first drink is balanced.

2. Can Thick Beverages Like Smoothie Fit the Cups?
Both single wall cups are ideal for smoothies and milkshakes. So it comes down to your portion to make the choice. Nevertheless, having been doing business with many juice kiosks, we find them preferring a combination of 8mm paper straw and 16oz cup.

3. Can We Serve Ice Cream in This Paper Cup?
We get these questions quite often. Since these cups fit cold drinks, can they fit ice cream too? The answer is no! You can top drinks with an ice cream scoop but completely filling the cup with dense dessert won’t be suitable. The best choice can always be the dedicated ice cream cups.
Likewise, it is inappropriate to serve hot coffee in a cold cup. We have double wall coffee cups to get the job done.
