McDonald’s creates re-engineered straws

McDonald’s has unveiled a limited-edition straw designed by a team of aerospace and robotics engineers.

The straw lets customers enjoy both flavours of the new Chocolate Shamrock Shake.

The shake has dual layers of chocolate shake below Shamrock Shake. The ideal flavour ratio is 50% chocolate and 50% mint in each sip, said McDonald’s.

JACE and NK Labs created the “probably-more-revolutionary-than-actually-needed” Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal (the STRAW). The STRAW’s j-shape provides optimal flavour flow dynamics.

Due to the STRAW’s design, only 2,000 were produced in time for Shamrock season. The STRAW will be available in select restaurants.
