I love these staws. They don't hurt my teeth like the metal ones and don't get soggy like the paper ones. I love that I can carry one with me and don't have to use disposable straws. The colors are cute and the price is great. I would recommend carrying them in something so that dust and lint don't get stuck to them, though. They are perfect to keep one in my desk, one in my purse, and another at home.
