Tesco Value Straws
Advantages: cheap, work as they are intended to, no bend bit
Just over a year ago I had jaw surgery to realign my jaws, this required me to have a liquid diet for 6 weeks so as you can imagine straws were a necessity. My teeth were banded together with elastic bands so there was only really room for a straw and as my face was very swollen and numb there was no way I was going to be able to drink from a cup. As I knew what position I would be in after the surgery I purchased several packets of straws to keep me going. One of the packs of straws that I bought was the Tesco Value ones.
The Tesco Value straws come in a pack of 50 and can obviously only be purchased from Tesco stores. I have found that it is only the larger Tesco stores that seem to stock these and they currently cost just £0.18 which I think is a complete bargain.
The straws come in a very simple clear plastic wrapper that has the Tesco value and just contact details for Tesco on the front. The packet is sealed by a fold over flap at the bottom of the packet which can simply be peeled back and then resealed with its sticky strip after you have removed the desired number of straws you need.
The straws are made of white plastic and are patterned with coloured stripes that run down the length of the straw. You get several of each coloured striped straws in the pack, personally the colours didn't really matter to me but they would look bright and fun for children and be great for parties. The best thing about these straws is that they are just straight and do not have the bendy bit that a lot of straws have, I find straws with this feature quite irritating as they tend to often get holes in and therefore do not work. These straws are also quite thick, I used them not only for cold and hot drinks but also for soup and didn't have any problems with it not being able to pass through the straw freely.
Overall I think these straws are fantastic value and are brilliant for adults and children alike!
Summary: A bargain pack of great quaility straws!
