Let's get straight to the point: Stanley just dropped new colors — a range of pretty pastels — for its 40-ounce tumblers today. By now, you probably know that whenever Stanley releases a fresh batch of, well, anything, it’s kind of a big deal.
Did you see the videos of people fighting for the brand’s Target-exclusive colors this month? Hey, maybe you were even one of the people waiting in line. Well, today you can skip the lines and all the madness; read on for how to snap up these coveted cups from the comfort of your couch.
Here's where to get the Stanley Clean Slate collection
Stanley’s new Clean Slate collection features light blue, light green, light pink and two mixed watercolor cups. The line first launched on Stanley's website — and no surprise, it's already sold out. But the tumblers are also available at Dick's Sporting Goods so act fast to score one for yourself.
Of course, the colorful cups are bound to sell out, so if you want one, buy one ASAP. I predict these tumblers will go as fast as Taylor Swift’s concert tickets! Speaking of which, some people are especially excited about the watercolor cups because they look like Swift’s Lover album cover, especially the "warm serene brushstrokes" cup. It features a medley of pink, yellow, orange and light green.
Why do people love Stanley tumblers so much?
According to Stanley's website, the brand got its start in 1913, when Williams Stanley Jr. invented the all-steel vacuum flask. The brand's popular 40-ounce Adventure Quenchers first came out in 2016 and went viral on TikTok in 2020.
Fans of the 40-ounce tumblers adore them because they're nearly indestructible. One woman even shared a now-viral video of her Stanley tumbler surviving a car fire. The clip shows her car in ashes, with her cup sitting pretty in the charred cup holder.
People also appreciate that Stanley tumblers have a tapered base, so while they're arguably massive, they can still fit into most cup holders. They're easy to carry and drink from thanks to their grippy handles and reusable straws.
More than 3,500 people on Stanley's website gave these tumblers 5 out of 5 stars. One fan wrote: "It holds a lot of ice and stays cold for a long time...I also like that it fits in the cup holders in my vehicles. This is my everyday cup."
"I tried one," said another impressed customer. "Waiting for the hype to die down so I might be able to get a cute one too. It’s great! I never drank so much water before..."
The 40-ounce Adventure Quencher already comes in tons of colors, but collectors and avid fans always clamor for new releases. If you can get your hands on the Clean Slate collection, go for it!
