It's rumored that the first drinking straws were cut from dried wheat shaffs. But as our technology evolved, we moved on to better materials. Whoops! Okay, not at first. Wax-coated paper straws were pretty fail for long-term drinking. We eventually got things right with plastic straws and bendy straws. Oooh, and super fat bubble tea straws for sucking up giant tapioca beads. But as usual, we didn't think of the consequences: landfills full of red and white plastic straws, piles of refuse looking like giant porcupines. Save the planet and have cooler drinks with Ice Straws! The mold is made of food-grade silicone rubber and will quickly make six 8-inch straws of whatever liquid you like. Of course, we don't have to remind you, dear fans of chemistry, that alcohol doesn't freeze too well. We recommend water or juices to make the best frozen straws. Pop them out of the mold and into your drink and you'll have the coolest meltable straw on the block.
