I would not. They are very thin and if you cut it to straw length, the edges are sharp so you risk cutting your mouth.

After a relative passed, they had left many unopened, unexpired bags of these (green 7 and 10 feet) and we donated them to either an animal shelter or a place that takes unexpired medical supplies for people...can't remember which.

Please do like we did for the open ones--If they are opened but unused, toss them or use them as a craft project...but not for anything touching food or drink. Open and used--TOSS!!! These can hold many germs. SAFETY FIRST!

I would not. They now have dishwasher safe plastic and stainless steel drinking straws

I do not think this would be a good idea and since drinking straws are so inexpensive, I cannot see a reason to think this would be useful.

I can see not wanting to throw "good" items away but this seems to be one of those cases were "to toss" or donate is a good thing to do.

technically 'yes' but would you want to?

products created for industrial v. consumption (anything from hydrogen peroxide to diatomaceous earth to tubing such as this) is made very carelessly, with more volatile components, has not been tested as well to make sure it lacks poisons/hazardous compounds, etc so you are liable to get something you don't want
