My friend works there and his manager lets me have them for 2 per bag, but I always help myself to more extra ones when I buy a drink! Regards Mark

Kev what effect does It have drinking beer through a straw? I could do with some straws but drinking me brandy through one may be deadly!

I recall from student days that drinking through a straw got you pixxed quicker....

my mum used to be able to use straws, the ones with the bendy end, cant suck now, so that even makes the pat saunders straw (with a one way valve difficult)- but if you can still suck then there are options of regular straws and the one way valve straw

Chris, this has been a topic with all my mates since i started with straws. Everyone has a theory, no oxygen being swallowed with the drink, something about the bubbles in the beer, you drink faster or is it what we did when we were younger as Adie said.

Not sure of the real science but i dont seem to be affected any quicker but i do get some funny looks. :D

In Mcdonalds in France you can have a beer with your meal and thats with a straw. Typical French hey :p

we used 'Bubble Tea' straws from ebay as they are far wider than ordinary straws, it takes less suck to get a decent mouth full. They are like a wider version of the ones used in Slush drinks, and being wider can be washed out quiet successfully. (about 3.00 for 50-100)
