Long Lasting

Designed to deliver outstanding drink performance, ensuring shape and integrity of straw is retained for many hours and not fall apart instantly.

Whether it be fizzy drinks, smoothies, milkshakes or cocktails, our paper straws are fully functional for use with various cold beverages.
