Tumbler smackdown: $40 Yeti vs $10 Ozark Trail

Tumbler Smackdown - WCMH

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – The Yeti tumbler promises to keep your drink cold all day long, but at a steep price. Walmart recently introduced a much cheaper alternative, but how well does it work?

NBC4’s Matt Barnes packed the $40 Yeti tumbler and the $10 Ozark Trail tumbler with ice and left them in the newsroom for 24 hours.

After measuring the melted water and looking at the ice left in each cup, it was clear that there was no appreciable difference between the performance of the two cups, especially considering the $30 price difference.

Matt did note that the Yeti lid was harder to remove.
