    So, I thought these would be really easy to find but I'm at a loss! I can't find them anywhere. I checked the dollar store, the party store, the grocery store :confused:

    I'm looking for food grade 'corrugated' tubing or straws. I see the straws sold with fancy cups all over the place, but not the straws by thesmelves. I found a few sources where you can buy tons of them in bulk but we don't want tons of them! Looking for a place I can buy them in packs of 100 at the most, less would be better. And not to be picky, but BRIGHT colors would be preferable to clear or 'normal colors' :rolleyes:

    Apparently Tiki thinks these are awesome to destroy :D I want to find a bunch and cut them into corrugated straw 'beads' to make toys with.

    Here's a picture to clarify what I'm talking about. Something similar to these:

    I've been looking still since I first posted this and nothing!

    HOLY COW!
    I think I've found some!!! In case anyone else is ever looking for them - apparently they are called 'whistle straws' not 'corrugated straws' .... :lol:
