McDonald’s Has Created The Drinking Straw Of The Future

One would have thought that the humble drinking straw had peaked in terms of innovation—but McDonald’s wasn’t satisfied. They sought a solution that would deliver optimal chocolate and mint flavor to customers enjoying their new Chocolate Shamrock Shake. To accomplish this herculean task, they employed a team of crack aerospace engineers to put their considerable skills to the ultimate test.

The “Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal” (STRAW) makes it possible for someone to enjoy two flavor layers at the same time. Complex math has never been called upon for a higher purpose.

If you would like to get your hands on a STRAW, stay tuned to for additional details over the course of the next couple of weeks. Apparently, they will be available in limited quantities at select locations when you buy a Chocolate Shamrock shake.
