CrunchCup: This Innovative Travel Mug Makes Sure Your Cereal Never Gets Soggy
You can always pour your coffee into a to-go cup on mornings when you've overslept, but milk and Cheerios don't travel quite as well. A new invention raising money on Kickstarter seeks to change that: The CrunchCup makes it possible to enjoy a one-handed breakfast on the go while keeping your cereal fresh and crunchy at the same time.
What sets CrunchCup apart from regular travel mugs is its dual-chambered design. The large, outer compartment is meant to hold a serving of milk to go with your cereal. Once that chamber's been filled, screw in the inner chamber and lid and pour your favorite breakfast cereal through the hole on top. This system keeps the milk and cereal separate until you're ready to take a bite/sip.
Unlike eating cereal from a bowl, using the CrunchCup means your cereal will never get soggy—no matter how long your morning commute is. And each component is dishwasher-friendly, so cleaning it once you've finally reached your destination isn't a hassle.
The product's Kickstarter campaign has already exceeded its $18,000 goal, and 5 percent of all proceeds will be donated to a "national charitable organization that is dedicated to feeding children in need." To reserve a CrunchCup of your own, you can pledge $25 or more to the project, with delivery estimated for April 2019.
