If you down your bevvies with a straw, then the craziest thing you may have ever used was a cool bendy one. OK, maybe as a kid you tried to suck down your Sunny D with a Twizzler but that never really worked the way we wanted it to. But what about a specifically designed edible straw? More specifically, a meat straw?
At the Saboroso Brazilian Steakhouse in Saskatoon, everything’s coming up meat — including the straws. General manager Jason Porat told the Wall Street Journal that they make about 150 coiled bacon straws a day, pairing them with a $7 Caesar.
“You can’t go wrong with bacon,” said Porat. No kidding. Somewhere, Lady Gaga just died and went to heaven.
There’s also a company called Benny’s Bloody Mary Snack Straws that has sold over 20,000 of the beef and pork straws over the past two years. And who can forget when Starbucks introduced a cookie straw earlier this year, to complement its frozen Frappuccino?
The best part of all this: The straw serves as a nice snack after. Because we all need a little bit more protein, right? Cheers, and bon appetit. Because with an edible straw we can bet this would never happen.
