Crazy Straws Are Alive & Well In 2010


Sipping my iced tea through a boring clear straw, I had a thought. What the heck ever happened to Crazy Straws?  As a child, I thought I was such a big shot, sipping my chocolate milk or lemonade with a Crazy Straw. I loved watching colored beverages pass through the thick, twisted plastic straw right before my very eyes. 

Back in the '70s, I don't remember Crazy Straws being super sophisticated or coming in different shapes and sizes. I believe they were just twisted and fun and everyone at school had to have one.

Today Crazy Straws are available in a wide variety of shapes and themes and aren't just for kids! Check out their website for straws for Bachelorette (they keep it clean!) parties, poker and more.

Did you have a Crazy Straw? Do  your kids use them today?

Crazy straws were always more fun than those straight ones. Even the bendy ones. I want color, pizzaz!

My fave, fave, fave thing to do was drink milk with my crazy straw in my Underdog glass. I just stopped doing it last week.

LOVE THIS!!!!!! we just bought crazy straws for T's friend's for T's birthday party this weekend!!! i'll have to get a picture of all the girls drinking from them! how cute! i did like crazy straws too, however, i had a hard time cleaning them. i remember trying to clean them myself and thinking that if i put the dish soap directly into the straw that it would clean, however when i went to take my first sip in my "clean" straw, i just slurped up a big thing of soapy drink. gross. another time, i didn't clean it and the milk got moldy in the straw. dang crazy straws. ;) i was so young back then!

We have an entire drawer full of crazy straws. Some of them are even from when my brother and I were kids. In fact, I think I'll go grab one right now!

I love(d) crazy straws. But I remember that we had some that you re-used. And I have to question how clean the dishwasher got those loop-de-loops.

Ick. Grown-up Alison is bothered by this. A lot.

Cheeseboy said...

Yep. Had a first grader bring them in just the other day.

Yup, the cute curly things were fun, but impossible to clean. These days there would probably be recalls and lawsuits...

I can't tell you just how much I loved these things as a kid…and those bowls with the straw built in…I think they were called sip-a-bowls.

Man, those were the good, old days.

Oh, crazy straws, most definitely cool. The only problem is that you have to rinse them immediately, or they grow mold. Yuck.
