I have to be honest I never really thought about using straws at all, not even those cheap plastic ones from the store. We use either adult cups or sippy cups and that is about it, but I will say after being able to try these glass straws I now use a straw all the time.
There are many reasons why people use straws, some will tell you that when you use a straw especially with things that are good for staining the teeth or high in acidity, the straw will help bypass the teeth in a way and protect them from the damage of the beverages you are consuming. I am not sure how much of that I believe though because the beverage is still going into your mouth, right?
Whatever you reason I am sure it's a great reason, I personally like the taste of my beverages when I drink them through these glass straws, call me crazy but they just taste better, it's nuts! When you order your set you will receive 4 glass straws, a clear, a blue, an orange, and a green, you also get a really handy cleaner which makes it super nice because anyone who has ever tried to wash a straw before knows it is impossible!
The straws are a little thicker than your typical plastic straws but that is simply because they are glass, this also helps to protect them from being broken too easily. I give these straws to my 3 year old with no worries. While I have refrained from giving these to Maverick because he is a thrower, and I do worry about the durability of the straws should they be thrown full force against a wall. It's better to be safe if you ask me. Haha
Overall, I have to say I love these straws though, I got another company that sent me one a while back to try and it seems shorter, which is ok if you have short glasses but these particular straws are the "normal" size in length and can be used with pretty much any glass. I have yet to try this straw out with cups with lids (I think these are called tumblers) we don't typically use tumblers so I never had a chance to try them out with those.
