CHECK THE STRAW BEFORE YOU PLACE IT INSIDE THE DRINK
Very Important – Please read
I ordered a Club Sandwich and a Sprite in a restaurant at the mall. When I finished half of the sandwich I sipped the Sprite. It didn't taste like the usual Sprite I drink. So I sipped once more, but it still tasted the same. It tasted like a Sprite mixed with some kind of oil.
I called the clerk and asked him if the Sprite had expired.. He said it was just delivered today. So I asked him to taste it. Then he also found that something was wrong with it.
Both of us were wondering for a while. Then I got to look inside the straw. There were a lot of tiny black round things that looked like eggs. So I cut the middle of the straw lengthwise to have a better look.. Yuck. There were a lot of tiny black round things in it.. I suppose they were cockroach eggs. About 1000 eggs were there. Then I began to check all the other straws in the box one by one. Almost all of them contained black eggs that seemed to be either the cockroach eggs or excretions..
After the incident I began to check all the straws in the restaurants and fast food chains that I had gone to.. Almost of all the straws contained the same black eggs. Especially the darker the colors of straws, the more black eggs were found. In black straws, extreme amount of black eggs were found. It was found out that it's because the cockroaches live (hatch eggs and excrete) in the dark places.
* 80% or more restaurants in the malls use red or black colored straws.
SO NEXT TIME.... BE CAUTIOUS.... . CHECK THE STRAW BEFORE YOU PLACE
IT INSIDE THE DRINK
