Waverly, Iowa: Big Red Mug

Sits on the ground outside a chocolate factory, so this would be a coca, not a coffee, mug. Maybe six feet tall.

Giant Red Cocoa Mug.

Giant Red Cocoa Mug

The Nestle factory in town has a huge red coffee (or cocoa) mug just outside of their plant. You can't tour the factory, but the mug is always available to the public. There is street parking right by it. My mother-in-law, who lives nearby, said that they used to bring the mug to the holiday parade and give out free hot cocoa, but they haven't done that in years. Today, the mug remains in place.
