Got kids? Got milk? Then have I got a fun review for you.
got milk? Magic Straws are disposable straws that come in a variety of flavors. Each straw is filled with tiny flavor beads that dissolve as you sip your milk through the straw.
Each straw has only 17 calories and 4 grams of sugar, which, if you’ve done the research, is much less sugar than most flavored add-ins.
They are all-natural, have no preservatives, and (according to their website) are allergy-free. How do I know all this? Easy! We were sent a bunch to try out & review!
Sometimes I really love my job.
Okay, so blogging isn’t my job, necessarily, but there have definitely been a perk or two.
(Or three. Or three hundred. I lose count.)
We were sent four packets with four different flavors—Strawberry Banana, Wild Berry, Cinnamon Roll, and Neapolitan. My ever-helpful eldest daughter Cate then drew up a graph to chart the family’s reactions.
“Great!” said the girls;
“Fine,” said the dad;
And “Good, but you have to suck pretty hard” from the boys. (What can I say? They’re teenagers.)
My thought was that they are pretty yummy, but the flavor can be subtle with a few intense bursts. I think this is due to the reduced sugar and that fact that we’ve gotten used to products full of high fructose corn syrup, so I’m not complaining at all about the subtle flavor.
The fact is, they’re a fun, yummy and fairly healthful way to get your kids to drink milk, and for that reason we give them a big thumb’s-up.
Now here’s the fun-for-you part of this post. I have two gift packages of got milk? Magic Straws to give away. Each gift package contains five packets of five different flavors for a total of 30 straws in each package.
Got kids? Got milk? Well, my friend, you’re good to go.
Oh, and these aren’t your average, every-day kind of flavors! We’re talking Strawberry Banana, Cookies & Cream, Cinnamon Roll and Cotton Candy. (My girls are most disappointed about not getting to try the cotton candy flavor. I’ve talked to them about selflessness and detachment and whatnot. Doesn’t matter. They’re still filled with regret.)
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post, telling me…hmm…how about your favorite thing to bake in the Fall? Because these straws would be the perfect accompaniment to some freshly baked cookies.
Or muffins…or pie…or crumb cake…or yum.
I will pick two winners on Monday morning. Also, you can earn another entry if you “like” the Got Milk? Magic Straws Facebook page. Just come back over here to tell me you’ve done so.
And that’s it! Good luck, God bless and go try some got milk? Magic Straws! I’m pretty sure they’re available everywhere.
