Don’t tell me it’s not fun to get your soda served in a soup container or a hazelnut latte served in a… can of Nutella? Okay, just kidding. This sounds like sheer torture, and who even does this? I mean, big round of applause for business owners who take their creativity to a whole new level, but there should be boundaries of common sense and functionality.

Well, if you've ever had your drink served in a ludicrous container and dreamed of having a good old cup instead, this online community is for you. The “We Want Cups” subreddit is a safe place to share our frustration by showcasing drinks that should have (but unfortunately, haven’t) been served in cups.

And oh boy, the whole collection is some painfully funny entertainment that will make you reevaluate your boring ceramic morning cuppa with a stupid scribble on it, because as you see, it always can get much worse.

Across America and Europe, bars and restaurants are following a relatively new trend of serving beverages in very creative containers. Many business owners believe that these creative and kooky vessels not only make the drinks more fun to sip, but bring that wow factor that sets them apart from their nextdoor competitors.

But no matter the presentation of your beloved iced tea, at the end of the day, it’s the inside that counts. Especially when Americans have very specific preferences about their beverages, with some of us avoiding bottled water at all costs, and others opting for convenience.

The chocolate straw will break, and then you'll have to sip out of a container that will dribble liquid down your shirt, no matter how you tip it.

Recently, a survey from Statista found what beverages people in the US consume the most, and on which ones they give a hard pass. The most commonly consumed beverage is bottled water, which makes up 24.8%. Turn out, the average American consumer drank roughly 40 gallons of bottled water in 2018 alone, so you can imagine the number soared during the pandemic when everyone stayed at home.

The second most consumed beverage is carbonated soda drinks, which make up 21.9% of the consumed beverages. The third most popular drink in America is coffee, with 12.6% consumption share.

On the other end of the scale, we have energy drinks, value added water and spirits that are the least favorite beverages among Americans. Although when it comes to spirits, the pandemic has clearly put them back in the spotlight with home cocktail culture soaring. According to the research firm Nielsen, sales of spirits at the end of March climbed 75% compared to the same period last year.
