I went to an antique store to find the next test cups for my Carnation Instant Breakfast. Since I’m in Nebraska, I went with enamelware cups. I found two possibilities: one cup that was the right shape, but the wrong color (green and white speckles); and one that is the right color but the wrong shape (too wide).
Pros: Looks great. Would be perfect on my sink.
Cons: Enamel has chips. Too wide. I can’t get the proper consistency for the crunchy-gooey chunks of undissolved Carnation.
GREEN SPECKLES CUP
Pros: Carnation mixes to the perfect consistency. Enamel is flawless and uncompromised.
Cons: Wrong color. Can I use an enamelware cup that doesn’t look like Grandma Hummel’s?
Con for both: Serious dribble. The lip of the cup has an overhang that is hard to seal with my lip. The result is a heavy dribble.
I will continue to use the green speckle cup until I find another cup to test. Perhaps I will develop the ability to drink dribble-free.
