Hey all! You know, just like me, that you have seen these multicolored paper straws in all the main American food blogs? Right! :) I was wondering where I could find them. A few days ago, I was in the center of Brussels, strolling from & to my favorite shops, where I spotted them in the shop, Rouge.
What is so cool about these straws, I hear you say? These straws are made out of paper, yes,…you heard me right! Each carton box has 144 paper straws. Each box costed me 9€. That is alright, I think. These paper straws are printed with food safe soy-based ink. They are all bio-degradable & compostable. They are from the brand: Kikkerland! So they are an eco-friendly product! :) I bought 3 different paper straw boxes! Let’s see! :) I have found these one’s in red & white, blue & white, grey & white & these other one’s too! These paper straws are colorful, lovely cool looking & not so thick. So perfect for cocktails, I believe! ;) I put my paper straws in my ready cocktails & they sat there for 10 minutes before enjoying them with my husband! They were pretty good & not soft at the end. Yeah! :)
And these one’s too:
Now, lets test them out with these yummy drinks!
