Tesco Value Straws
Advantages: Bright colours, can be washed, fantastic value
Disadvantages: No bendy bit
In our house straws have always been used for craft purposes however we had a party for our eldest daughter at a soft play place near home and they gave the children cup drinks with straws and from their my daughter has asked for straws for her drinks.
We did already have some straws but as they were kept in the arts and crafts box I didn't really want to then let my daughter drink from them so when I was in Tesco I picked up a new packet.
The straws are part of Tescos value range so these are only available from Tesco but you can buy similar in many places, a packet of 50 straws costs 18p so they are fantastic value.
The straws come in a plastic packet which has very little information on it simply the name of the product and the fact there are 50 straws on the front. At the bottom of the packet there is a fold over flap which is stuck down so you can peel this back to open it and then reseal, it doesn't stay sticky enough to reseal for the duration of the whole packet but the packet is fine to keep the straws in without it being sealed.
Each straw is made of white plastic and then there are stripes of colour down the length of the straws, you get red, yellow, blue and green and my daughter always likes to pick which colour she is going to use. The straws can be washed out as they are plastic so can be used a couple of times before ending up in the bin which is only because my daughter just can't seem to help biting the end of them.
The only issue I had with these straws is that they don't have the bendy bit just down from the top of the straw so my daughter did spill a couple of drinks trying to pull the straw to her mouth without moving the cup but she has soon got used to it.
These straws are fantastic value and keep my daughter happy now I just need to prevent my 2 year old getting hold of them as she tips the cup up too far whilst trying to use a straw!
Summary: Fantastic value
