Straws have been around for centuries, and the design has changed very little. Over 50 years ago, one man — and pre-internet records are fuzzy on just who the inventor was — decided that a way to get children to drink juice and milk rather than soda would be to create a fun straw, and he began bending straws into unusual shapes. Krazy Straws was bought out by Fun-Time International in 1989, and production was moved to Mexico. The product proved to be a huge success, and these straws are still sold in the millions every year.
