The straws are great for my children. They tend to leave their cups on the table and bend the regular straws to drink. It makes it much easier since the straw doesn't get pitched. It's even better because they are individually wrapped so we can leave them in our cars or have them in their bags when we go on trips or any family outings.
This is the second time I have purchased this product. The first time was wonderful! The second time lacked quality control in the area of packaging. The straws are supposed to be individually wrapped, but this time I have already pulled about 20 straws that don't have a wrapper. This is a concern for me because the unwrapped straws do not provide the level of sanitation that I am seeking. Several hands handle the straws and I need the straws to stay sanitary. I purchased multiple boxes of straws because we go through a lot of straws and because I wanted someone else to try the straws. I gave them a box but their box also had several unwrapped straws. For now, I shall continue to order the straws because I cannot find individually wrapped flexible straws at a reasonable price anywhere else. However, I will not recommend this product again until it appears--from my purchases--that the quality control issues have been addressed. The straw itself is a good straw. Again, my issue is only in regard to the protective wrapper. Even though the outer box has been changed to a box of inferior quality, being able to get the straws in small boxes that make storage easy is definitely a plus.
