I've come across a few edible straws of different types that can make a drink more exciting. The straw in plastic form seems like a wasted opportunity to improve the drink experience. The image attached is a celery straw, the perfect addition to a Bloody Mary. I remember drinking a mixed drink of Earl Grey tea and amaretto with a cinnamon stick straw. 7-11 recently launched a flexible candy straw that hardens in a Slurpee - it's now their best selling candy. And Starbucks launched a cookie straw for their Frappuccino. With a little creativity, there are countless options for edible straws to be paired with the specific flavors of the drink.
