I recently went to Starbucks and was confused why my drink didn’t come with a straw. I was also confused why  the cup had a new design that allows you to sip straight from the top of the cup. This new design makes you feel as if you went back in time when you were a toddler grabbing a sippy cup.

Starbucks has reached the final straw with plastic straws.  Two years after declaring they would ban plastic straws, Starbucks has held to its promise and will now use sippy cup type lids on drinks.  For drinks like Frappuccinos that have the plastic lids shaped like a dome, Starbucks will give you a straw unless the law in that state says different.
