Chopstick-Straw (Soup Sticks)

Julian Lechner invented the product “Soup Sticks” (or “Chopstick-Straws”) in 2013. The chopsticks are also straws, eliminating one extra utensil from the food table.

SOUP STICKS
Chopsticks that are also straws is the simple, functional concept behind the Soup Sticks.
A product proposal aimed at improving the eating experience by allowing solids and liquids to be easily consumed with a single implement.

Chopstick Straws (YEP) Will Change How You Eat Ramen Forever
By Andrew Liszewski
Published September 9, 2013
Tradition or not, slurping soup broth directly from a bowl can be an awkward experience, if only because you often end up with it dripping down your chin. But instead of letting all that tasty broth go to waste because you don’t have a spoon at your disposal, hopefully restaurants will see the genius in Julian Lechner’s hollow chop stick design he’s named Soup Straws.

Chopstick Straw: Simultaneous Sipping & Slurping
The ultimate two-in-ramen device tool?

BY LAILA GOHAR
(...)
Think of the chopstick straw as the ultimate two-in-ramen device that allows you to simultaneously sip and slurp. Mastermind Julian Lechner came up with the functional design with the goal of ”improving the eating experience by allowing solids and liquids to be easily consumed with a single implement.”
