Sometimes even the most advanced minds need a little coffee to wake them up. Get the Criminal Minds Heat Sensitive Mug and reveal what’s really on the mind and mug. The black mug features the Criminal Minds logo that, when hot liquids are poured in, melts away to reveal suspect outlines, blood splatters, and a file.
I gave this to my wife as a fun Xmas gift (along with other more expensive gifts) and it turned out to be her favorite gift of this holiday season. Everyone loves the reveal of the clues when the mug has warm liquid in it. Very cool and fun!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The cup is attractive, and that hot liquid in the cup causes the outside to change its graphic strikes me as an effective marketing detail. The problem is that after three or four (gentle) washings by hand the finish along the rim, the bottom edge, and the bottom of the cup has started to flake off. I conclude that the cup isn't safe to drink from now, so I'm throwing the cup out and the purchase price has been wasted. I cannot recommend that anyone should buy the cup.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
