A Cool Candy Thing

When I was a kid, I used to go ballistic for bendy straws.  Nothing would make me happier than getting a bendy straw in my milk shake, and inevitably I would try and add a few more bends in my straw, just to make it even cooler. The problem I had was that I didn't realize that the accordion like segment of the straw is what made the bending possible, and I always destroyed my bendy straws trying to make them even more twisty and turny.  I think if someone gave me a straw building kit like this I would have lost my mind.  I also would have insisted that it came to every family dinner no matter how fancy the occasion.
