The New Plastic Straw Alternative: Pasta Straws!

As people have started to get more serious about trying to keep plastic from ending up in the oceans, plastic straws have been one of the first things to take a hit. Now straw users have several alternatives to choose from, including reusable stainless steel straws and compostable options made from paper, bamboo, or corn-based materials. But some companies are taking straws in a new, edible direction by making them out of pasta.

Both Stroodles and The Amazing Pasta Straw sell straws that are basically bucatini - straight, long tube-shaped uncooked noodles. They’re made in Italy from the same stuff as the pasta you’d eat for dinner, but these straws are a little sturdier than your average macaroni noodle.

Both brands claim the straws are tasteless in a cold drink and Stroodles says theirs will last about an hour before getting soft, which is about the same as a paper straw.
