Cardboard straws are icky.... *welp*

I'm for protecting the environment and everything but has anyone drank soda with the cardboard straws offered at some fast food joints?? A&W. Ughhh... slurping soda only to get that papery soggy damp taste from soaked cardboard paper. Nuts.

7 11 might be onto something with their edible straws, but they are an extra 50 cents (each) to buy.

The Toronto Zoo has cardboard straws too. They get soggy and unusable so quickly. Either drink directly from the cup or just buy reusable straws. That's what I started doing.

its swooper icky yicky deary!
Just use a plastic straw hon. There are other ways you can save the environment. You can drive less, recycle more, re-use, turn off lights etc.
I wash my plastic straws and reuse.

Are all paper straws disgusting? Or just the A&W ones?
Maybe it's A&W paper straws deliberately made on the cheap to keep costs down?

Growing up in the 50s and 60s all we had were paper straws, so to me it is a retro thing.
