Tesco Value Straws
Advantages: cheap and colourful
Disadvantages: not bendy
My kids love to do arts and crafts and I had found online instructions to make flowers, as Mothers` day was coming and they wanted to make something for their Nan. The instructions called for Tissue paper and straws. I already had tissue paper, so just needed to invest in some straws. So off to Tesco we all went. I found these straws and was amazed at the price 18p for fifty. Great!!!
I could see from the packaging which was semi- transparent that they were quite thin, which didn't cause us a problem. They have four colours in each pack striped white with blue, red, yellow or green. The straws are plastic and are about 2mm in diameter. Well they worked great for the craft purposes, and since the remainder has been in the cupboard the kids have enjoyed using them for their drinks. The only problem is the fact they don't bend so when my youngest tries to use them I need to supervise so that the cup doesn't tip over. I have had a try with them and have found them pretty good. It`s nice to have a lovely cold drink through a straw sometimes. I tend to use two straws but that is just preference. They are fully reusable if you rinse them after use. However, they are so cheap I generally just through them out, especially as the kids tend to chew the ends...nice!
The packaging is a simple, clear cellophane bag with the Tesco "no frills" logo on the top. Although I tend to decant mine into a plastic jar because I think they could easily get crushed in the bag and there is less likelihood of my kids spilling them all over the place.
Another use my "wonderful " children have found for these is as blowers, they chase each other around blowing bits of paper through the straws at each other much to my frustration, as I end up picking up the mess.
These are available from most if not all Tesco stores; however you can purchase them online at www.tesco.com.
