Clear Plastic Smoothie Cups & Milkshake Cups
This is an introduction to disposable plastic smoothie cups, the perfect food storage solution for smoothies, milkshakes, and juices amongst other foods, the benefits, the makeup of different plastic cups that Catering24 sells, their uses and the different sizes that we stock. Our most popular cup is the 12oz smoothie cups (BN003) and 16oz smoothie cups (BM060).
There has been a constant upward trend when it comes to smoothies and milkshakes, they are both two sides of a coin when it comes to looking at the health benefits of both. Smoothies are made up of predominantly fruit and vegetables combined with ice or milk. They have grown in popularity since the early 2000s picking up when smoothie blenders became an affordable kitchen accessory in the everyday household. Milkshakes however have been a common drink choice since the 50s. Mostly popular in everyday cafes and diners across the globe. Milkshakes comprise of using milk and ice cream with a wide variety of flavourings from the standard vanilla to the recent invention of a freakshake which takes the normal milkshake to the next level by adding cream, sauces, and even cakes and biscuits as a topping. Whichever drink your business decides to serve up, our clear plastic smoothie/milkshake cups are the staple product you need to be looking at.
These clear cups are not suitable for hot drinks. If you’re after kraft double wallpaper cups for hot drinks check out our cup category here.
