Old-Fashioned Aluminum Tumblers (Set of 4)
I loved these glasses as a child. To get them, one had to buy them at the grocery store as they were filled with COTTAGE CHEESE. We used the glasses as our only glasses...none others would do. There is a couple of differences with these beauties and that is the weight is a little less, the inside is different and the rim is changed the most. The Cottage Cheese ones had no lip on them as these do. All in all, I love looking at them.....it is like going back in time and being a kid again. Thank you Vermont Country Store.

They are just like I remembered
I ordered the smaller tumblers and am very pleased with them. I received a brain freeze (lol) the first time I used them. I had forgotten after all these years just how cold the tumbler keeps your drink. In the future, I will be ordering the larger tumblers making a complete set.

Just Like Gram's
I ordered these tumblers, but have had them in the past. I NEVER have problems with the color coming off. My suggestion to those that do: Use Lukewarm water; don't let the tumblers sit in hot water with detergent; I use Dawn liquid, wash them quickly, no soaking, no scrubbing with cleanser/brillo etc. I use a soft cloth. And I guarentee the finish will last for years.. my last set (8OZ) now I got 16OZ.. havent faded yet, and its been 5 years.

nice trip down memory lane
I was so anxious to get these because we had them
when I was a kid in the 1950s. I hand washed them as
everyone said to, but the paint is coming off all of them
very quickly, so that was very disappointing. Other than that it was fun to remember my childhood for a
while. Drinks taste so cold in these tumblers, and if the paint stayed on I would have been so happy.

Memories of Grandma's house!
I was so happy to see the aluminum tumblers in your catalog. My children were discussing memories of Grandma's house. She recently passed away, and they had many fun memories of staying at her house. They said "remember those aluminum glasses? We always fought over who got the blue one! I wish we could find some. She served rootbeer floats in them and they got so cold!"
I thought that would be a good surprise, extra, Christmas gift for them. Well, I ordered the wrong number & was shocked to receive the small tumblers.
Customer service was very kind in helping me to get the correct ones! Thank You

Just like Gram's
We ordered these glasses because the plastic "glasses" are joining the glass ones and breaking. I remembered the aluminum glasses my Grandmother had in her cupboard, they survived all of her grandkids, so started a search for same. I found them in my favorite shopping site, Vermont Country Store. We were worried that they weren't big enough, but when we poured the beverage from one of the remaining large plastic glasses into our new aluminum ones, no liquid flowed over the edge. Looks are deceptive. Love drinking my cold beverages out of these glasses, the drink feels and drinks cold! Gram really did know best!

I was dissapointed
I purchased the old fashioned jewel-toned aluminum tumblers (primary colors) recently because it brought back childhood memories. I remembered how cold it kept the drinks. After use, I always washed them by hand (never in the dishwasher) and I noticed they started to discolor.
