This set contains 6 bent straws and 6 straight straws and 2 brushes. In our household, we are trying to eleminate the use of plastic straws altogether, so these are just what we were looking for. The aren't really meant for anything thick like a milkshake, but are perfect for soda, tea, water, etc. They seem to make the beverage colder as you drink it. We like these a lot! There are 3 colors so you can keep them seperated for each person.
