Mummy Review: I just got these Sipahh Straws and I may have to hide them from my kids, because I love them!
*Disclosure– The following products were provided, but my review and opinion are my own.
When I first came to Australia, one of the family members I stayed with was in love with these straws, but I had never seen anything like it. I mean, I had seen chocolate powder mixes or syrup even, to add to your drink. I had never heard of people putting the flavour in a straw and just drinking your milk out of it! How fun!
Well, *Sipahh Straws has done it! And wow, what a variety of flavours! The best part has to be that each straw contains less than 1/2tsp of sugar! This is a little less worry for me as a parent, as I already fret over the sugar intake of the children in this house.
(In comparison to one other unnamed milk drink mix with 8g sugar per serve, Sipahh has 1.8g per serve.)
One of my children is a major milk-a-holic and was literally bouncing up and down when I explained these to her, and she was keen to try every flavour. We settled for a couple. Now, for those of you who have pickier children, I hear you. My eldest is the pickiest I know, and refuses to drink milk, but given these, she has almost warmed up to the idea of trying it. (This is the kid who won’t try anything, but more on that later.) This is an excellent idea for those pickier kids, though.
The straw itself has little flavour gems inside, and something on the top and bottom to prevent choking hazards, and to keep the goodness in the straw itself. The milk is flavoured as you drink through the straw, so much easier than measuring out amounts and trying to get it to blend into the drink itself. Each straw has a pre-measured portion, and it’s more than enough for a cup of milk!
Another positive is that they come individually wrapped, so no fretting over a stale taste! They actually made their way into stockings at Christmas this year because of that, and the kids who received them were stoked! So, might I suggest adding them to party bags, Christmas stockings, or any variety of gifts as a little bonus!
Not sure what flavour you love? They have variety packs, or individual flavours for sale, so you can sample and choose the ones you love! In my personal opinion, you can’t go past the chocolate mint. Honestly, these would also be great to drink with a milkshake, or an iced coffee, too, which I will have to try at some point!
Many parents I spoke with love these straws, and their kids do, too! As a matter of fact, one child pounced on these when I was sharing the wonderful flavours with some mums. It was hilarious, and a good indication of how much they are loved by the children who have tried them.
