I found these in the grocery store yesterday. It looks like they might make a decent light weight tea/cocoa cup. They've got a reuseable lid with a sipping spout and hold 11.1 ounces.

Looks promising! Have you put an empty one on the scale yet? Andrew Skurka says that a reusable 16oz Starbucks mug weighs 1.5 ounces and costs about $2 at Starbucks, but I haven't had a chance to get one yet. Please keep us posted.

That's a coincidence...I just had one the other night and saved the cup, thinking the same thing. Actually, it was this:

Looks like the same thing with a different label.
11 ounce capacity, 1.1oz with lid, lightly insulated.

With the label peeled, it weighs 32 grams. I'll try to remember to weight one with the label still on. The label is a very thin insulating foam, so people might choose to leave it on.

You're welcome, Tom.

Also, with the label left on, another one weighed 33 grams.

Thanks for sharing. I'll try this out. I'm a vegetarian, Harvest Carrot and Ginger Sipping Soup seems delicious.

Glad I could help.

I've been eating somewhat vegetarian too the past couple months. I say "somewhat", because I haven't been strict about it. For example, if I order restaurant food, I'm not going to ask and don't really care if the pastry has lard in it or if the green beans are cooked with a bit of pork. Even so, it seems to have made a difference; I'm feeling less sluggish and gross, if that makes any sense.

Unless you're doing it for religious reasons, you can get the health benefits of vegetarianism simply by reducing the amount of meat you eat to a very small amount in one or possibly two meals a week. It's a bit simpler than going 100%. But I digress.

I think that call a Flexitarian diet, honestly, there are times that I mistakenly ate food with meat and it upset my stomach sometimes it cause constipation, too.
