I don't know if anyone is interested but I was recently in our local BB and B and found bubbe tea straws. I haven't been able to find them locally and had to buy them on ebay so this is much easier for me and since I am bake as a hobby and I don't need large amounts of them. They call them Milkshake Straws if I am not mistaken....I found them with all of the kitchen gadgets like measuring spoons and cups/graters/peelers and such. I think they were priced at 1.99 for 50. Use a coupon and get 20% off.

One more reason ro looovvveeee BB&Beyond!!! Thanks so much, not sure my hubby will be saying the same LOL I can never go in there without dropping some serious cash.

Milk shake/Bubble Tea straws may also be found in the smaller quantity in the Walmart grocery aisle that contains gadgets such as cocktail sticks, bamboo skewers, juicers, mixing cups, etc. Indeed, makes it much easier on the hobby baker!

Great price! I will have to remember that. If anyone has a Farm Fresh (I live in VA) they carry them as well in the dairy section near the ice cream toppings.

I got a pkg. (50) or more, and they were only 88 cents at an Asian Food Market. Good luck!

Sweetcakesbyjen - where are you in Ohio. I purchase bubble tea straws in bulk from Restaurant Depot. I think they were around $7 for 500. Can't beat their prices. I don't think you need much to get a Restaurant Depot pass (I got mine when I had my coffee shop.)

K I'm gonna show my ignorance here...what do you use them for?...instead of dowels? icon_smile.gif

Yes, instead of dowels.

When you're shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond you can use up to 5 coupons at a time if you are purchasing multiple items. They also take expired coupons. I know, because I just purchased 5 items and used 5 coupons and two of them expired several months ago.

i saw those too and got some to compare and I found them thinner and more flexible than the bubble tea straws. I was nervous to use them. if someone uses them let me know what you think!
