Magic Milk Straws is a new product that we found at the 2011 Toy Fair in New York City in early February. We received some samples to try out and did not receive any monetary compensation for this post. All opinions are 100% of own.
Each pack of Magic Milk Straws contains 6 straws and come in 4 flavors, Cocoa, Cookies and Cream, Strawberry, and Vanilla (we only said they come in 3 flavors in the video but the website says there are 4).
I think kids will really enjoy using the Magic Milk Straws and I can just see them asking for them everytime you go to the store.
Each straw is made out of a thick plastic. There is an opening on either end so they work just like any straw. The magic is the tasty beads inside of the straws. Put a straw in a glass of milk and DO NOT CUT IT in anyway. As you sip the beads give the milk flavor. Kids can blow bubbles with the straw for more fun.
One thing I found is that they do not give the milk a lot of strong flavor as if you were putting in chocolate or strawberry syrup and they don’t turn the milk color. But, after reading their website I do not believe that is what they are designed to do. They are designed to make drinking milk fun for kids and that they do.
After I did the video review I left the chocolate milk straw in the milk and I found that it did change the color slightly and make the milk have more a sweet taste. While the Magic Milk Straws do not really change the color of the milk, kids are going to love them.
This product is not readily available yet in all stores but it is coming soon to Target I believe. Maybe the owner can update us when they have a list of stores. For now you can go to their site and input your zip code to find a store selling the Magic Milk Straws near you or you can buy them online at Amazon.com. They run around $2.49 for a pack of 6.
- Kids will love them because they are fun and you can blow bubbles through the straw
- Everything is enclosed in the straw so you don’t have to do anything but put one in a glass of milk and start sipping
- Flavor becomes stronger the long the straw is left in the milk (takes some patience on the child’s side)
- Doesn’t change the milk colors like traditional syrups
- Does not give the milk a strong flavor
- A little pricey
