If you ever wanted to have your straw and eat it too, here is your chance: Starbucks is now serving straws made from cookies. According to a press release, the cookie straws are made from a "rolled sweet wafer biscuit lined with rich chocolate ganache" and are apparently the perfect way to suck down the chain's newest milkshake-masquerading-as-a-coffee-drink — the S'mores Frappuccino — which debuts today.
While supplies last, all Frappuccinos will come armed with a free cookie straw. And if one is just not enough for you — or if you're just someone who enjoys snacking on edible tubes — the sweet straws will be available for purchase at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada. While in theory cookie straws sound great, logistically, they don't appear to make much sense: Is it really possible to not eat the straw before getting even halfway through your drink?
While the straw sounds fun, Starbucks missed the opportunity to make a fully edible Frappuccino, complete with a cookie cup. Earlier this year, KFC unveiled coffee cups in the UK that are made out of cookies and are lined with a layer of white chocolate. Best of all, they are fully edible.Eater Video: Coffee cups you can eat
