McDonald’s Builds a Better Straw

Tech innovations from McDonald’s? Yeah, it happens occasionally. They have decided that the drinking straw needed a redesign, so a team of robotic and aerospace engineers did just that as part of a marketing push for the new Chocolate Shamrock Shake. That’s a fifty-fifty combination of McDonald’s standard chocolate milkshake with the minty seasonal Shamrock Shake. The Chocolate Shamrock has been on the secret menu for a while now, but it is now going mainstream for St. Patrick’s Day.

The redesigned STRAW – short for “Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal,” will solve one problem: having to wait for your shake to melt a bit before you can get the perfect mix of chocolate and mint flavors. A conventional straw will only suck up one part of the shake at a time, but the J-shaped snorkel design and side openings here will suck up both layers at once.

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake was released along with a few other minty beverages earlier this month, but the STRAW is only available in limited quantities at certain locations when you buy a Chocolate Shamrock shake. Keep an eye out on McDonald’s website for details on where to find the special straws.
