Totally Strawesome!

After sharing the post for my cookies and creme milkshake, there came a certain point when I wasn’t sure if there were more comments about the recipe, or about the intriguing glass straw in the photo. Though unexpected, I can’t say I’m entirely surprised by that reaction- It was the same intrigue that originally led me to the source.

Captivating works of art, each creation from Strawesome is entirely unique and handmade. They’re not only a greener alternative to plastic and disposables, but they’re truly beautiful perched in any drink. The thin little brushes included with purchase make them a breeze to clean, too, but make sure that you rinse them out fairly soon after using to make the process even easier. Green smoothies can become rather “clingy” when dry, if you know what I mean.

Arriving with a life-time guarantee against breakage, available in just about all widths, heights, and shapes imaginable (you can see the “bendy” version veering off in the top-right corner above,) they’ve completely eliminated the need for me to buy any other straws… Although I will admit, there is now the powerful temptation to acquire more lovely glass ones, though!

PS, I’ve had absolutely no personal contact with the company and have discovered and purchased all of these straws myself. I’m just a huge fan and think that everyone should know about them!

  1. Those are gorgeous! I love using straws but always feel icky about throwing away plastic, thanks for posting about this cool solution!

  2. Ok, I need one of these! I think I would just feel extra cool drinking my smoothies if I had one! haha, thanks so much for the link!!!!

  3. Wow, unbreakable? I definitely have to give these a try. Melody uses a lot of straws at home because it makes drinking fruit smoothies more fun. Though she will be supervised because the straw might be too enticing.

  4. Gorgeous. I love the idea of these although admittedly I am slow to wash out my dishes so they would have to be special occasions.

    Isn’t it funny that there is so much product placement on blogs these days that we have to call out when we discovered something on our own and didn’t get it for free?

  5. Wow, these really are beautiful! I use straws all the time, and hate what a pain it is to clean and reuse the cheap, plastic ones. I’d definitely prefer these!

  6. Thanks for the lovely post Hannah (love the pic!) and for all the kind comments everyone! I just want to clarify that these are not “unbreakable” – we do not state that anywhere on our website. However, we do have a life time guarantee against breakage as this is very strong glass, similar to Pyrex.

  7. They’re gorgeous!

    If I may point out your link doesnt work (missing the www part when you click on it) :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. All things old are new again. Hospitals in days gone by used nothing but glass and stainless, materials that can be sterlized. The straws were glass back then. I have one that had been my Grandmother’s. With having dishwashers I love seeing them back!

  9. These are so cute, Hannah! I think I saw these in another blogger’s photos but the top was cut off and I was wondering what type of futuristic tools they had. I’m a bit ashamed to admit, but I’m always on the prowl for great food props.
