These cups are fine-they are just as good as the Hefty or Solo brands. I prefer those because they seem a bit thicker but if you're running to Walgreens and you need plastic cups, getting the cheapest ones is fine. They all serve the same purpose and the cheaper brands will still hold your beverages and usually they have some nice colors so you can get whichever you like best. I will splurge if I want a nicer color for a party but if it's just for home, I buy the least expensive. If that turns out to be Walgreens brand that works for me. I trust Walgreens very much and have found their own products to be pretty good.
