Strawesome Review & Giveaway

Who would have imagined a glass drinking straw? But that's just what Strawesome  is! I love the one I received, the hand made designs are great. I almost feel it was made just for me personally with a cute purple dots. Did I mention that purple is my favorite color?

So tonight I decided after a long day at work it was time for a cool refreshing beverage, and being the southern girl I am. I always love mine in cold glass mason jars,  and what better time to try out my new Strawesome straw. The very first thing I noticed about a Strawsome straw vs a disposable straw is that the straw got as cold as my  beverage, this enhanced my drink to be extra cold. That I like!!

I love the idea that this is "MY" personal straw, it can be washed and reused and I don't have to fill up the landfill with more garbage, plus the money  I will save on straws alone will make this item a cost saver really fast.

Now it was mine until my darling husband came down with this horrible flu bug going around. I decided to help keep the germs from spreading to lend him my Strawsome Glass Straw for him to use. I loved the idea that he knew just what straw was his, and we did not have to go through a box of disposables. The nice thing was I did not even have any disposables in the house, so with Strawesome
 I did not have to run and purchase straws just to toss to the garbage. As you can see in this picture, he really enjoyed it in his chocolate malt I made for him. He remarked at how good and cold his malt tasted right to the last sip!

Just how did this wonderful idea come about....

Deadra has ten great reasons on the Strawesome site the benefit of using a reusable glass straw. Her number one reason is "Concern about plastic usage is at an all-time high. Glass drinking straws are one way to limit your exposure to toxins from plastics because they are toxin-free! No BPAs, phthalates, etc."  Check out all the other great benefits here.
