EDITOR’S NOTE: We were able to score one of these tumblers when they eventually arrived in our local stores. You can read our full review — including how long ice lasted in our tumbler, and how a hot drink essentially broke our tumbler — at this link.
Aldi is all about jumping on board with trends and selling their own lower-cost versions of whatever is popular on the internet and among the broader shopping world. Whether it’s inexpensive imitations of Always Pans, Caraway Pans, or even Pottery Barn reindeer or baskets, Aldi knows how to capitalize on what’s hot.
Most recently, Aldi is making waves advertising a cheaper version of a Stanley tumbler. If you’re on social media — particularly on TikTok — you might be familiar with Stanley tumblers.
The Stanley company has been around for more than 100 years, founded by engineer William Stanley Jr. They’re known for their vacuum-insulated stainless steel water bottles, along with mugs, lunch boxes, cook sets, flasks, growlers, coolers, and more. Their products have a reputation for durability and come with a lifetime warranty, and the company notes that pilots used their thermoses in World War II.
While Stanley products used to be primarily marketed to men of the outdoorsy type, more recently the company has started marketing to millennial women, expanding its product color range to include pastels. Today, Stanley has a large following of influencers on social media, especially on TikTok. Newly released colors often sell out quickly.
The product Aldi is selling is an Adventuridge 40-oz. Thirst Crusher Tumbler, which looks to be a knockoff of the Stanley Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler. That particular Stanley tumbler has a distinct handle on the side, along with a straw. The bottom part of the cup is also narrower to fit in a vehicle cup holder. The name-brand Stanley tumbler claims to keep liquids hot for seven hours, cold for 11 hours, or iced for two days.
Here’s more information about the Aldi imitation.
What We Know:
The Adventuridge 40-oz. Thirst Crusher Tumbler (Product Code: 709516) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back at some point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not currently in stock at your local store.
The Aldi tumbler cost $9.99 in August of 2023.
The corresponding Stanley Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler tumbler sells for $45 on Stanley’s website. Target also sells the Stanley 40-ounce Flowstate Quencher tumblers for $45, and you’ll find the 40-ounce Stanley tumblers for $45 and higher on Amazon.
Aldi is selling its tumbler in several different colors: Flint Gray, Charcoal, Cream, or Blue.
The tumbler is sold under the Adventuridge brand, which is not a separate company. Rather, it’s the name Aldi puts on its outdoor and camping products. Other products we’ve seen under the Adventuridge private label include hydration backpacks, hammock chairs, and pop up LED lanterns.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t yet tried this tumbler, so we don’t know how well it works or how it compares to a Stanley tumbler. Specifically, we don’t know what the specs are for the Aldi tumbler, including how long it keeps things hot or cold. We write open threads so readers can discuss Aldi products.
