Mostly I am posting this because never again will I have the excuse to use the phrase "Bloody Mary Beef Straw," nor am I sure I want to. But as a fan of a good Bloody Mary, I have to say, I find this sort of intriguing. What we have here appears to be a beef "snack stick," that has been hollowed out, allowing the Bloody Mary to soak into the snack stick and the snack stick to flavor the Bloody Mary. Bloody interesting, I'd say! $22.95 for 4 packages of 5 straws each at Benny's Bloody Mary Beef Straws. I mention the packaging because these might make a good gift to keep on hand for things like hostess gifts, don't you think?
