"A bit blown-looking instead of being lush-looking palm trees. Disappointed with them as they could have more tinsel on them to fill them out a bit. Wouldn't buy again."
J Williamson - Glasgow, 19th July '11
Drinkstuff says: Many thanks for your comments, we have these straws manufactured specially for us so we will contact our suppliers with your suggestions.
"Many cocktail decorations are a bit tongue in cheek and cheesy, these certainly make no exception to that. They can make a cocktail/drink etc... look very fancy, but ideally they should be accompanied alongside other different decorations, as on their own do look silly, and not in a good way."
Steven Philpott - Medway, 29th June '11
"Was doing a Come Dine With Me with friends and mine was a Caribbean meal so these straws were just what was needed. Will be ordering more for summer garden parties."
Farrah - Preston, 23rd March '11
"Good item to add that little extra to your drink. Looks good and the quality is good."
Rob - London, 27th October '09
"These straws are really good. They add that finishing touch to make the cocktails even better. Well worth the money!"
Carly Brockhurst - Hove, 16th February '09
"Children at my daughter's 10th birthday (Cocktail) party loved them. They arrived quickly. The only negative thing I would say was that I ordered these and some bendy straws and they came in a huge box that could have contained 40 more boxes!"
Dawn Russell - Oxfordshire, 8th February '09
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Dawn. We are pleased that you are happy with your purchase. With regards to your comment concerning the packaging, this is not normal practice.

"Straws just great. Perfect finishing touch."
Katharine Verso - Ireland, 27th October '08
"These well-constructed bendy straws were easy to unpack and arrivewd promptly. The glittery palm tree effect turned simple squash based drinks into sophisticated cocktails for 10-11 year olds with none of the fiddly assembly of cocktail parasols. A brilliant product."
Laurene Henderson - Sutton, Surrey, 11th July '08
"Great for giving cocktails that extra sparkle."
Susan - Merseyside, 15th June '08
"The straws are great. They are for my party in august but i really wanted just purple but couldnt find them anywhere, these are very colourful and great for any occasion. ;o) plus cheap!!"
STEPHANIE POTTS - WIGAN, 9th June '08
"Delighted with straws,they were a perfect finish to childrens cocktails for a 13th Birthday Party, all the kids loved them and felt 'quite grown up' whilst parading around with there multi coloured drinks and straws!"
Karla Smith - Prenton, 10th June '07
"Fab and fun to use!! shame they are not re-useable as you only get a few and if you have a party they go pretty quick!! Although great price"
Kelly - Surrey, 4th January '07
"These gorgeous straws added a touch of glitter and glam to our cocktails - perfect for our school disco fundraiser."
Ruth Hill - New Zealand, 8th September '06
"This are actually really pretty, I was really looking forward to the 'tackyness' of them, but they made a good addition to table decorations... Oh, & their great straws too!"
George - Brighton, 21st May '06
"Whilst you may think these straws are the epitome of the classic 80's Del Boy Pina Colada cocktail, they are actually quite fun and add a bit more sparkle and pizzaz to your cocktails than a plain straw!"
Toria - Cheltenham, 13th December '04
