I am from Milwaukee and I got mine at Restaurant Depot, but I also saw them at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Bed Bath and Beyond has some great ones now. They are in the middle of the aisles. I have seen them in two stores in two states. I think they are milkshake straws.

Are these really strong enough to use at tier supports? I saw someone mention this a couple of days ago.

I used them in my last cake. 3 tier cake 10 8 and 6 in and it was good. This was the first time for me using them and I really like it. icon_smile.gif

Yes, they are very thick and fat. The package of about 50 is only $2.00, so get a bunch. I'm like you, my only other source is online with shipping charges. I have read on here that asian markets have them, but we don't have an asian market either.

I buy mine from eBay - sellers name is bobastore. They are individually wrapped, but they are the strongest I've come across and shipment arrives before the estimated delivery date. Usually free shipping.

Are you guys saying that store sells thicker walled straws? I didn't know there was more than one kind of boba straw. I better look into that. Can't seem to find white ones, they'd look much more professional I think.
Also, I would recommend using plastic dowels on anything more than a 6 8 10 cake, as the weight can get pretty heavy. Just save some mulah and use the straws on the first 3 tiers, then use the plastic dowels on the biggetr bottom ones. Justa thought.

Got mine at Big Lots. They are milkshake straws but they are huge and big just like the bubble tea straws.  I have never seen straws so big before but knew I could use them for cakes so I bought them for when I do a two tier cake later this month.
