Sponsored Review: Bacchus Break Silicone Wine Glasses

I wrote this post while participating in a campaign by Tomoson and received a gift and or payment to thank me for my time. All views and opinions with regard to the products or company itself are my own and were not influenced or reviewed by the company prior to posting.

Now that the weather is getting warmer and warmer outside we are spending a lot more time outdoors. I always have a hard time bringing drinks outside. We only usually have glasses or plastic cups. I rarely have a plastic cup I can keep that is not a toddler cup. So when I saw these great Bacchus Break Silicone Wine Glasses I thought they would be great to have outside for barbecues and picnics.

Bacchus Break Silicone Wine Glasses come as a pair of two 16 ounce shatterproof Silicone Wine Glasses. They are dishwasher safe, and you can freeze them to keep your drink cold. They are extremely durable, and easy to take with you wherever you go whether it be swimming, camping, barbecuing or to the beach.

I was excited to try these out. They worked great in the dishwasher without any problems and I did like the freezer idea. When you freeze them they are not too cold for your hand to hold, but cold enough to keep your drink cold. Unfortunately, I was not as fond of the Bacchus Break Silicone Wine Glasses as I thought I would be.

First of all, they are terrible for wine. A proper wine glass needs to have a stem so that the temperature of your hand does not impair the temperature of the wine. Not to mention wine out of silicone does not taste well. Even with that said I was not that disappointed. I did not plan to use these as wine glasses.

Instead I had hoped to use them as regular outdoor drink glasses for juice, water, etc. Especially since we go to the beach a lot it would be nice to bring them with us. However, I was very disappointed in these mainly by the fundamentals by which they work. The very thing that makes them neat, their flexibility and versatility is exactly what hinders using them as a proper cup. They are hard to hold and drink out of; you end up spilling some down your mouth or your shirt. They miss the point of being a good cup. I also thought they were very high priced for the quality.

The only thing I did like about these was that they are dishwasher safe and the cooling feature is nice. However, if I spill every time I drink out of it, I do not think that makes it a good cup.

If you would like to order your own pair of Bacchus Break Silicone Wine Glasses you can find them on their website along with other items they sell
