They're designed to be used with more savory drinks like a bloody mary, but there's no way these edible beef straws -- made from hollowed out jerky -- won't improve the flavour of any beverage.
A pack of 30 will cost you $US34, so Benny's Bloody Mary Beef Straws certainly aren't a cheaper alternative to regular plastic drinking straws. But like liquorice, they're completely edible. And unlike licorice, they're made from more delicious seasoned beef.
I would also like to point out that I've taken the high road with this post, since the suggestion of sucking on a beef straw is ripe for more childish jokes and wordplay than my mind can comprehend. [Benny's Bloody Mary Beef Straw via Neatorama]
