Straw Company Stroodles Adds Fully Edible Tableware Range


LONDON—Pasta straw company Stroodles has extended its product range into a fully edible tableware range. This new range includes biscuit spoons, wheat bran plates and bowls, and wafer cups. All the company’s new products are 100 percent biodegradable, vegan, zero waste and even edible, and most importantly, don’t compromise your drinking or dining experience.

Since the launch of their pasta drinking straws in 2019, which have since become a global and viral trend, Chief Stroodle and founder Maxim Gelmann, says that the company is now ready to grow their movement and own the eco-tableware category. The company’s aim is to show how easy it is to do good, “one Stroodle product at a time”. Speaking about the motivation behind the expansion of their product portfolio, Gelmann says, “Stroodles is more than a company, we are a movement dedicated to making real change by impacting the planet in positive, eco-kind ways. We have always taken our commitment to creating solutions to plastic pollution very seriously. Ever since we started off with our signature pasta straw, we knew this was just the beginning of our journey.”

The new edible, vegan spoons are made from biscuit and have a 1 hour use time with cold dishes and 30 minutes with hot dishes. The ice cream (6.8 and 7cm) and dessert spoons (8.4cm) are available in oat flavor and a gluten-free chocolate version. Large 14cm spoons are available in classic, cacao, pepper, and masala variants. The coffee stirrers are 11.5cm in length, made from biscuit, are gluten-free and vegan and can be eaten after use.

Stroodles’ edible plates and bowls in which you can serve hot and cold food, are made from wheat bran, and are designed to be 100 percent biodegradable, vegan and compostable in 30 days. Their plates are available in diameters of 16, 20, 24 and 28cm, with a round bowl variant of 20cm diameter and an oval bowl measuring at 24 x 16cm. Additionally, smaller 250ml bowls and 100 and 30ml saucers made from biscuit are soon to be released.

Finally, Stroodles’ new edible cups are made from wafer, designed to last for at least 40 minutes with hot drinks and be heat-resistant up to 85°C. There is no transfer of heat, and the wafer doesn’t change the drink’s taste. The cups are available in 110ml and 220ml volumes and are perfect with hot drinks, as well as cocktails and even desserts. An outer recyclable holder can be customized upon request.

The full range is available for retail, as well as trade.
