I could not find out whether it is true.....
I ordered a Club Sandwich and a Sprite in a restaurant somewhere in .
When I finished half of the sandwich I sipped a sprite. But it didnt
taste like an ordinary sprite I used to 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 was 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.
HORRIBLE STORY !!
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 eggs of
cockroach. About 1000 eggs were there.
Then I began to check all the other straws in the straws case 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.
Almost of all the straws contained the same black eggs. Especially the
darker the colors of straws, the more were the eggs. 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 DRINKS.
