Day 3:  Eggnog Shake and a Smile

Here is a recap so far of the 12 Days of My Mug and Me:
Day 1: Favorite Coffee Shop Drink
Day 2: Anyone Care for a Cuppa Tea?

Today’s travels take me to a very well known fast food burger joint known all over the world for their golden arches and french fries – McDonald’s.

Every year around this time they come out with a very special shake. I could not wait to take My Travel Mug on a little field trip. Because not only does the Mug work great with hot ingredients it can also keep things mighty cold.

What’s in the Mug?

A wonderful combination of ice cream and holiday cheer – A McDonald’s Eggnog Shake.  If you love Eggnog then you must go out this holiday season and enjoy one, it is fantastic!

Did you know?

Ben and Jerry’s website has some fun games to play when you need a quick stress reliever. There website: is fun, festive and just all around makes you smile.  Check out the Cow-A-Bunga game and get your surf on dude!

Great Gift Idea

Ice cream lovers beware this is a ‘cool’ gift idea. An RU Motivated Travel Mug to eat their ice cream out of and keep it cold, a pint of their favorite ice cream, homemade Hot Fudge Sauce, and brightly colored sprinkles. Check out the recipe for homemade Hot Fudge Sauce you will never buy it in the store again!
