Now I’ve seen you in blue and I’ve seen you in yellow But only you, red, will do for this fellow

The Solo cup made it’s first appearance in the 1940’s and has quickly grown to become a staple stereotype that defines college parties. Currently available in a variety of colors and even a square shaped base, the cup has evolved to become a primary part of many festive events. Of course it’s popular appeal has also lead to many imitation red cups but nothing is quite like the solo cup. I recently found this picture online which I actually thought was really interesting. I had no idea the indentations were anything more than a design element of the cup which also made me do a quick google search about the history of this accessory that usually is party of some great nights and even better stories.

Did you know this? (Or is just me that had no idea?) Do you know of any other frequently used items that have cool facts that most people don’t know?

So…raise your cups and let’s have a party!
