Found 4th Nov 2014
Picked 1 of these up the other week, no leakage on the seals and contents remain hot for ages. Available in various colours.
BTW, this is not to better the other Aldi deal, these may be completely different quality.

Don't know how those are any better.
I get given these free all the time as promotional items, think it the replacement for a promotional pen.

Agreed, for those who like a laugh search up dailymail on the anorak website and look at the list of stories they have published.

Deal voted hot, £1 for a mug is a bargain.

Hardly. BPA is a well known carcinogen and 'gender bending' chemical.

All the reputable manufacturers eg. Thermos etc have removed it from their products.

Personally, I wouldn't touch a 99p hot drink plastic cup.

And yet another person falls into the (particularly ironic on a website dedicated to bargains) "if it's cheap it must be no good" trap.

I have yet to find out what "insulation" these actually have. Yes, having a sealed lid will keep a drink hotter than in an ordinary mug (evaporation will cool the drink quickly), but I reckon that's the only difference.

I presume it has to be food grade at least does it not?

but the problem of plastics is huge it not just what you eat n drink.
but then other factors are involved like if you wash at high temps they leach chems
if you don't was high enough then bacteria builds up ..

bloody nightmare since plastic is so useful too

Yes indeed - it's useful so it's overused, and it has issues, but then so do most things including what you'd use instead. More likely to break your toe if you drop the alternative china mug.

And bacteria are good for you - or rather, some are, and trying to eliminate them unnecessarily is definitely bad for you and the population as a whole. You don't have to sterilise a mug each time you use it.
