Thanks!


that was me icon_smile.gif
I saw some packs in the soft drink aisle.and I saw some at Kroger as well.
We are in Texas. oh! any Asian store close to your home should carry these.They are usually kept where the chopsticks and noodle bowls are.
They usually run,about 99cents for a pack of 50 straws.
If all else fails you can get them from ebay or Amazon.
Good luck!

Visit your local Asian grocery store they should carry them, they are inexpensive & sturdier that a milkshake straw.

Read closely Mariana... MamaR said she asked for them and the Manager GAVE her a few handfuls.... why stir up trouble?

As to the OP, I get my milkshake straws (same as bubble tea) in my Walmart Neighborhood Grocery in the aisle that holds misc. kitchen utensils/items such as measuring cups, spoons, thermometers, etc. I also get my skewers in the same spot, parchment paper much cheaper there as well.

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

oh yes, I see that now. however, let's lead the OP in the direction of professionalism and not suggest getting straws from some fast food place, yes?

I don't know if you live in an area with a Meijer store, but it's where I recently found packages of milkshake straws. There were some hanging on a clip strip by the 2liter pop bottles, and better yet.. more packages were hanging in the cake decorating aisle. I haven't been able to find them at my Walmart store though icon_sad.gif

Seriously....you do what you need to do. If straws from a 'fast food place' support my cake and are the only option at that time, then of course I would use them. The person getting the cake isn't going to care if the straws came from McD's, an Asian store, or wherever else you may find them....but they sure as heck are going to care if their cake collapses.

I swear by my bubble tea straws. I bought them off Amazon for dirt cheap! I will never go back to dowels. I always had such a problem cutting them...

I'm pretty. Sure there was sarcasm intended in the post saying "please advise people to steal straws from McDonald's." she wrote "How lovely" at the end so I think she was implying its kind if rude and cheap to do that which it is. Go buy your straws with your own money.

I found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, right up by the cash register with the impulse buy stuff.  

I'd rather be baking!

Try Monster Straws® at www.themonsterstrawcompany.com

 

Their straws are 1/2 wide and are the sturdiest disposable I have found.  They have sales and are on Amazon, too.
