Glass Dharma Giveaway!!!

Hello there foodie friends! Today I wanted to tell you about a new product I tried. Glass Dharma glass straws!

My first impression on taking these out of the box?  They're beautiful! I got 4 different types of straws: original straight, original bent, smoothie, and mini. Two of them have these beautiful glass bubbles of color on them. If I had multiple straws the colors would help a group of people tell which straw is theirs, but for now I just admire the color as I'm sipping!

I tried all of these, and I really like the straight original straw. The size is a comfortable fit for my mouth, it fits nicely into our kitchen glasses, and is easy to use. I like the mini straw too, it fits our smaller size of kitchen glasses perfectly! The bent straw has a great appearance, but it doesn't come with the color, and being glass the angle is not adjustable. Still a nice straw though!

My new favorite? The one I won't let anyone touch because it's MINE? The smoothie straw! I love smoothies, but I don't have an expensive blender, so sometimes they are chunky. Using a regular straw was pretty much impossible with my smoothies. The chunks would plug it up, and I just gave up on the whole idea. This new straw from Glass dharma is nice and wide, so no chunks get stuck, and I can just sip away to my hearts content! It also has a great little cleaning brush, so I never end up with grodey bits stuck inside.

Want to know a little more about Glass Dharma straws? They are perfect for everyone who wants to cut down on their plastic use, both for health and environmental reasons. These straws are:
-easy to clean
-suitable for hot and cold drinks
-dishwasher and microwave safe

Still unsure if you want something so fragile in your kitchen for everyday use? Don't be! Glass Dharma offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, AND a lifetime guarantee against breakage! It can't get any better than that!

  1. Hi Rowie,

    First I need to tell you how much I love your blog, I actually get bummed if i find that I missed one, funny! Anyway i would just LOVE the smoothie straws,since i got one of those Montel Williams food emulsifiers for Christmas. I love it but I cant get every last drop without it all hitting me in the face! And i hate the itty bitty straws the stores sell.So thats what I would do. Oh and you should look into the machine,it was on QVC for cheap,less than $200, it makes everything,it is rather large,but makes making veggi juices easy peasy.
    missing you lots
    love,jen Anderson

  2. These are so cute Rowie! If I`m the lucky winner, I would go for a couple of bendy straws and a brush to keep them clean. Theresa

  3. So Fun, and a good idea I am constantly washing my plastic ones- the tots go through them like they were disposable or something.. I would want the classic ones, they would want the bendy ones... It would be a coin toss.

  4. So cool Rowie! I would get a couple of those smoothy (milkshake) straws you have. I can't figure out which one it is from the site, but thats what I would want!

  5. So sad I missed this contest! I've been wanting to try some glass straws out for a while now. Great giveaway!
