A Helmet in your Hand

It was around this time last year when we discovered and reviewed the FanMug, a unique can koozie, mug and desk caddy – all in one – in the form of an authentic, miniature replica of your favorite football team’s helmet. The facemask is the handle and the 13.5 oz removable cup is dishwasher safe and BPA-free. It keeps your can, bottle or poured cold drink cold, AND your hot chocolate or coffee hot.

We really like the attention to detail of the FanMug, from the team nickname on the front and back to the clear facemask clips … just like real helmets. You’ll be the talk of your tailgate while supporting your team with the FanMug, which is definitely “Tailgate Approved”.

We just learned two pieces of exciting news about the FanMug that many of you will be fired up to learn. FanMug has added 11 more NFL teams to their line-up of officially licensed products and plans to have all 32 NFL franchises available in the near future. This comes on the heels of having a number of NCAA licensed FanMugs available as well.

The other good news is that FanMugs are now available at Fanatics.com. Priced at $10.95 each, you can afford to pick up a set for you and your tailgating crew.

It seems like there are quite a few Kickstarter campaigns going on that the product would be a good fit for tailgating. Here comes another one and this time it is for a can koozie that has a digital thermometer embedded in it and also a device that chills your beer in the koozie. Check out their Kickstarter video.

The Koolernaut is a potential new product but the inventor is a familiar one to those longtime TailgatingIdeas.com readers. The inventor is also the same guy that sells the Beer Outlaw. We reviewed the Beer Outlaw back in 2009 and it passed with flying colors.

If you think this idea of the Koolernaut has some legs, drop some funding on these guys so they can put it into manufacturing.

Custom Can Koozies

Posted by Dave On October - 8 - 2013

Whether your tailgating crew hosts a handful of people or a few hundred, you want your tailgate to stand out. Because most people prefer to wear jerseys or at the very least the home team colors, trying to brand your tailgate with apparel can be difficult and quite expensive. But why not brand your tailgate party with customized can koozies? We recently discovered Expressimprint.com where you can design can koozies online for your entire tailgating group.

I know it is cliche to say, “it’s easy as 1, 2, 3″ but using the online design tools from Express Imprint it was just that simple.

Step 1: You choose the color of koozie you prefer.
Step 2: Add text to your koozie. It could be your tailgating crew’s name, your website, etc. You can even make it go straight across or arc up or down.
Step 3: Choose your graphics. Express Imprint has a wide variety of clip art to choose from that would fit with your tailgate party theme.

As you can see in the above photo, we chose a football themed graphic along with our website brand name to produce a pretty sharp looking customized koozie. And to be honest with you, the whole process took us less than three minutes to complete.

Another aspect of customizing your koozies is you have so many different koozie options to customize. They offer 10 different varieties of koozies including the thicker foam koozies and even koozies for bottles. So if your tailgating crew likes those expensive imports that only come in bottles, you can have a custom koozie for those folks as well.

Check it out and start customizing your can or bottle koozies for your crew in less than five minutes. Bulk orders reduce your unit costs and save you a little bit of money in the process.

Beverage Coozie Ice Pack

Now that baseball season is here and College Football’s spring games are already underway, that means the age old battle of trying to keep your drink colder, longer is back again. The old fashioned koozie sleeve has served us well but sometimes the bottom of the can can still get a little warm. I was recently contacted by the folks who make Beverage Coozie Ice Packs to test out their product. We did a quick video to demonstrate how they work.

If you skipped the video, please refer to the top photo to see how they work. Basically the Beverage Coozie Ice Packs are small discs that are filled with a substance that you freeze and can reuse over and over again. Simply place one of these discs in the base of your koozie, insert your canned beverage into the koozie and the disc will keep your canned beverage cold from the bottom up. Quite the simple concept but a brilliant one at that.

We tested this product thoroughly and found it to be “Tailgate Approved”.

The Beverage Coozie Ice Packs are priced at $1.50 per disc. If you want to buy six, we sell them six (6) for $6. Shipping is $2.00 if you buy one disc or a six pack. To buy any number of these Beverage Coozie Ice Packs, click here.

Featured Gear Friday: Scorzie

Posted by Dave On July - 27 - 2012

It was around this time last year when we first discovered the Scorzie koozie and did a product review of it. (To read that review click here)

Scorzie

Since that time, the Scorzie has been experiencing explosive growth and success in and out of the tailgating niche. Anytime you combine a good idea with a great idea, you are bound to experience success. That is exactly what the Scorzie does. It combines keeping your drink cold like a regular koozie all while allowing you to keep accurate score of your tailgating game of cornhole, washers, ladder golf, etc.

The timing couldn’t be better for us here at TailgatingIdeas.com to include the Scorzie amongst all the other unique and useful products made just for tailgating that we carry in our online tailgating gear store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com. Pricing for one Scorzie is $12.99 and if you buy two, you’ll save a few bucks. Two Scorzies run $24.00 for the pair plus shipping.
