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.
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.Read more ›
Definitely a great product.
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.
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!
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???
