Asda Neon Straws
Advantages: cheap and cheerful
Disadvantages: bendy bits can crack
I like to keep straws in the house for when my teeth are sensitive to try and save them a little bit, also they are handy to use at parties, especially for children parties. Also I would use them quite often to drink out of tins of coke as I do not like drinking from a tin. I bought in a pack of them recently and used them at my fiancÚs birthday party, they were liked well by both the children and the adults.
These straws are available in Asda, they are neon coloured and come in pink, orange, green and yellow, the colours are quite nice looking and are really bright and neon like. These colours are quite unisex although the little girls at my party obviously liked the pink ones better and the boys seemed to favour the greens (the adults weren't as fussy lol).
These straws have a little bendy bit at the top to make drinking more comfortable, I think that this is a good thing
What I Thought
I really liked these straws, they are quite good quality for the price and they are thick enough to allow fizzy drinks through them without them fizzing up too much and losing their taste.
The little bendy pieces in this straw are designed to make drinking easier, but sometimes I found that the if I was too rough with the bends, they cracked and made my straw holey which was quite annoying. The kids were especially rough with them and had to have their replaced a few times but I didn't mind too much because they were so cheap and there was 150 of them in a packet so we didn't even come close to running out.
Price and Availability
You can buy a packet of 150 straws for 70p at the moment in Asda, I think that this is a great price as it works out at just over 0.5p per straw. These straws are cheap and cheerful and I will definitely buy them again.
I think that these straws are great to use at parties or with drinking tins, sturdy enough apart from the bendy bits and cheap to buy. I would definitely recommend these straws and overall I would give them 4 out of 5 stars.
