magic milk straws (review)

image

has anybody seen these in the stores? i've seen them now for several weeks..maybe a few months..and they just LOOK LIKE SO MUCH FUN!!! but i haven't justified myself into buying them, since they are kinda pricey ($2/pack of 6 straws). 

with my coupon shopping this weekend, i had some "overage", which means i got all my laundry detergent for FREE + i had $5 to spend in the store instantly...there was nothing else that was an amazing deal that i wanted to jump on, so i decided to buy some milk straws.

let's just say i'm pretty disappointed. *wah wah*. the flavoring is so *light*, you can hardly taste it..it's just a hint of it there. also, it doesn't last my full pint-glass of milk...and if you let it sit in your milk for...10 mins? all the little flavor balls dissolve into the rest of your milk..and you don't even taste it--AT ALL. it worked better with my 8oz glass, but i still had to chug my milk through a straw to make sure it didn't dissolve too fast.

i won't be buying anymore straws...i think i'll just keep them in the house for my niece/nephew/kids-that-come-to-visit...since they are fun..just not all that flavorful.

  • I've never heard of them, but they look awesome! Sad to hear they don't have a lot of flavor though. Sad

  • I had the same experience with them. Thats why they are still sitting around. Don't know what to do with them.

    TTC #2 for a million years: SA normal, CD 23 bloodwork shows nothing amiss, ovulation detected. Next step: ? maybe CD3 bloodwork to check eggs? All out of pocket, so limited IF tests/treatments.

  • I bought the chocolate ones many months back for my coworker for fun. She LOVES chocolate milk. She said the flavor wasn't very strong but was better than nothing and was at least fun.
