Starting from this year, the packet of Yakult drinks will not be accompanied with plastic straws.

The alternative way of drinking is to open the aluminium lid and drink directly from the bottle.

While the majority of Yakult drinkers have no qualms with the change, some netizens suggest that young children might really need straws for drinking.

With that, a website called The Last Straw came up with metal straws for Yakult to provide an option for those who cannot do without straws.

Each 11-cm metal straw comes with a 15-cm mini cleaning brush, is selling at S$4.90 originally.

That is more expensive than a pack of Yakult which costs about S$3.20.

However, these straws are tested in local labs and are verified to be safe to use.

To make the offer as sweet as Yakult, the metal straw and cleaning brush cost S$2.90 after a discount.
