Yakult Singapore removed straws from their products Yakult and Yakult Ace Light last month.

This was their commitment to become more environmentally-friendly.

Most Singaporeans welcomed this change as it is easy and convenient to just drink directly from the bottle. 

Vintage collectibles on Carousell

As such, a few innovative sellers who see sentimental value in these straws listed Yakult straws on Carousell for sale.

The prices listed ranged from S$199 to even S$1,000.

We are not kidding:

“The popular everyday probiotic beverage, Yakult (sic), were once packaged with straws. Today, they are nowhere to be found – succumbed to the growing trend of strawlessness. $199 sounds silly now, but surely, this a collectable worth investing to share stories for generations to come. 5 straws – Brand new in packaging”
