Using paper straws in liquid is like putting your wet clothes in a fire to dry. Sure it'll work but you ain't getting them back fam

paper straws are disgusting, I get we need to save the environment and and and. But plastic straws are so much better! Can't shotgun a beer with a paper straw...

Drinking a milkshake through a paper straw is just wrong. And forget about it if you want a double thick milkshake.
Works somewhat with a metal straw but if its something like a barone shake they just clog up since the metal staws are generally quite thin.

You don't shotgun a beer with a straw.

Seriously, whoever thought that paper straws were anywhere close to a substitute for a plastic one should be shot by firing squad.... I have yet to finish a cold drink or beverage with a paper straw and most of the time I just sigh and drink it out the container rather that try and get another straw that will go just as soggy, just as quickly, as the previous one.

I have a re-usable plastic straw I carry with me to restaurants for when I can't just drink from the glass but I positively hate paper straws.

Bought a set of metal straws for the misses, they are copper colored and come with a plastic bristle brush for cleaning. Good for cocktails, not so good for thick milkshake
