It happened without me knowing. I went to sip a drink out of my cup and I felt something weird. Yep, it was a paper straw. If you're not expecting a paper straw, it is the weirdest feeling. LOL Let's be real.  There have been 2 places I've been to recently where they offer paper straws. How do you feel about them?

ROSA'S CAFE RECENTLY GAVE ME A PAPER STRAW

I love me some Rosa's here in the Permian Basin. It's without a doubt one of my favorite places to eat. And, the SWEET TEA rocks. That's when and where I discovered they have paper straws. Is this recent? Is this permanent?

STARBUCKS RECENTLY GAVE ME A PAPER STRAW

The other day, went in on my Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and BAM there was the paper straw. Now, recently I sometimes get the paper straw from them and other times it was back to plastic.  I guess it depends on the store you go to.

4 BIG COMPLAINTS BOUT PAPER STRAWS

  • THEY GET SOGGY. This seems to be the biggest complaint about paper straws. After being in your drink for a bit, they seem to get soggy.
  • THEY TURN A WEIRD COLOR - After a while, the end of the straw turns almost a beige color.
  • THEY FEEL WEIRD - Some do not like the feel of them in the mouth.
  • THEY ARE NOT STURDY- They eventually get flimsy and fall apart!

REASONS WHY PEOPLE LIKE THEM

    • Environmentally they are better than plastic straws.  They are a GREEN product.
