These straws are made in the United States of America. Every other package of straws I have looked at, was made in China. I have many good things that were made in China, but when it comes to food-related products, their manufacturers seem to be a little careless about quality. Plus the price for this case is about what you would pay for a half dozen individual boxes, IF you could find them in a store.
These straws are 15/64" in diameter, so will fit into a drinking cup with a 1/4" straw hole. They are 7-5/8 inches long.
This case of straws may last me for a while, but I much appreciate the quality.

Buyer beware of vendor OTCRx4U. If your order arrives damaged, you may be in for a world of hurt. I bought four 24 packs of Glad straws through Amazon from the vendor OTCRx4U. The four packs of straws arrived taped to each other with a massive amount of tape and no external box. After struggling to get through the tape, I could see that the package was wet and the internal boxes of straws were soggy. Since the bottom was wet, I have to assume that the package was sitting in a pool of something. I didn't want to take the chance of putting these potentially contaminated straws in my mouth.

No problem, I thought. The Seller will replace these contaminated straws. I called customer service of OTCRx4U, the Seller. The employee couldn't have been nicer. He apologized and said, "We will resolve the case by tomorrow. We will definitely call you tomorrow." After three days with no return call, I phoned back and was referred to his supervisor. The supervisor said several times rudely and bluntly, "It's your problem, lady." "There will be no replacement." "No refund." "I've sent them out a couple times with no box and they arrived OK. So, it's YOUR problem, lady."

After spending precious hours working with OTCRx4U and Amazon via emails and phone calls over a period of 3 weeks, the vendor requested that I ship the straws back. Amazon wanted the straws shipped with insurance, UPS tracking, and a signature requirement confirmation. Shipping was to cost $118 to ship back $74.60 worth of straws. OTCRx4U still had not confirmed that they would pay for the return shipping and it wasn't clear if OTCRx4U was considering a full refund or a partial refund for the original order of straws.

I made one more call to Amazon and explained the dilemma.

Yes, these straws are made in the USA. We had been searching everywhere and couldn't find straws that were NOT made in China. I don't trust any Chinese products made from plastic. Who knows what chemicals may be in them with the very lax, almost non-existant, safety controls they have.

Definitely a great product.

As of July 2010 these straws are still being Made in USA. There are 40 straws in each recycled paperboard box (which I will again recycle).
Length is 7 5/8 inches (19.37cm), diameter is 15/64 of an inch -- just a smidge under 1/4-inch (0.6cm). The box is colorful but the straws are rather bland, clear with a thin blue stripe on either side.
24 boxes of straws came in the order, so I have plenty to give to grandchild's mama and also keep some in the car for restaurant use. Including shipping the cost per box is 88 cents.

I shopped Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target & Kroger for flexible straws; they each had a brand but all were made in China. My grandchild is NOT going to use Chinese-made plastic straws with no telling what chemicals that might leech into a drink. Here was the only place that I found American-made flexible straws. I plan to contact Glad to thank them for keeping production here in the USA. You can, too:

I may order more, who knows when they might shift production elsewhere. My praise to seller JustOTC, they had my order on my front porch 3 days after ordering, via FedEx.

I was so glad the reviewers took the time to let potential customers know these straws are made in the USA. I wish all product descriptions would include country of origin as this is the first thing I look at when I buy anything, especially anything food-related or clothing-related. So many times vendors do not include this information or just say it's "imported" (useless information). There are too many safety and quality issues with anything made in China.

Thank you, reviewers, for the heads-up on these straws. We have gone without straws for over a year now because we can't find any that are not China-made. I will definitely be buying these!

Thank you, Glad!

Well, I read all the reviews and was very excited as I wanted GLAD straws as I used to purchase in the supermarkets in the USA. The ad for this products says that they are GLAD STRAWS. Others commented that they are made in the USA.

The straws I received are in a similarly colored packet, but are NOT GLAD and NOT made in the America, but guess what? MADE IN CHINA! I paid over 70.00 with shipping and feel the price was terribly expensive for straws made in China. I wonder if that is why this product is no longer available. Does anyone know???
