The Circle K that we have all come to know as the Polar Pop stop at lunch every day, has taken a turn for the worst. The styrofoam cups have run out! The science behind the Polar Pop genius was the styrofoam. Styrofoam features very small gas pockets within the plastic walls. Due to the great spacing of gas molecules, the conduction of heat is hindered making styrofoam a top notch insulator for warm and cold beverages alike.
The manager Asaudi confirmed today that the styrofoam would be back soon but gave no certain timetable. This issue is unacceptable and after listening to my grievances, he completely understands and is working very hard to get the styrofoam back because he knows how important those cups are to the culture of our school.
Not only do these cups keep the inside contents at the optimal temperature, it keeps the outside of the cup warm so you don’t have to deal with your hands being cold. Also, the styrofoam cups reduce the amount of condensation that builds up on the outside of the cup and reaps havok on the desks and paper it is left near for more than 5 minutes.
Polar Pops have a strong hold on the student body and their is nothing more sincere than raising your cup to the sky and giving a passing Polar Pop drinker an accepting nod. Without the Polar Pop, Poway High’s culture will be irreversibly changed.
With students concern building, Asaudi needs to act fast otherwise the students of Poway High School will move on to a new lunch time drink stop.
So the styrofoam cups are back which is a huge relief for the Poway High student body as there were more students seen in Circle K than I have ever seen at lunch on this past Friday. This was a real scare and this must not happen again any time soon.by
