Caterpack Candy Striped Paper Straws Pink, Blue And Yellow Pack Of 150 5 "Surprisingly good!" Mrs Hibbert 18 March 2019 Remembering the paper straws of my youth which invariably caved in making you burst a blood vessel trying to suck I was somewhat dubious about these, but to my surprise they really work! They don't get all soggy and disintegrate - I even left one in a can overnight and was still able to use it the next day. Now all I have to do is train the grandchildren to put them in the paper recycling bin! Any chance you could make these with a bendy bit in or would that weaken them too much? A note from the team Thanks for placing your review and for your suggestion about a bendy bit - I suspect you're right about it weakening the structure however I've passed the suggestion to our buying team so do watch this space.
