From the website:
With this ice tray, you can make straws out of ice.
We guess that's good for the environment, but more importantly it means you can drink a soda and leave NO EVIDENCE.
Each silicone rubber mold will quickly make six 8" straws out of whatever easily frozen fluids tickle your fancy.

Oooh! This reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode where the lady killed her husband with a frozen leg of lamb and then cooked it. The lamb, I mean.

If you want transparent straws, heat your water (distilled would be best) to a boil, cover and cool and then use the boiled water to freeze into straws. Boiling drives off dissolved gasses in your water (note those little bubbles that precede the boil - that's the dissolved gasses coming out of solution) and distilled water will not have Calcium or other "hard water" contaminants to cloud your straws.
Freezing your degassed water with a drop or two of aqueous-soluable food coloring will net you colored straws.
Using a very hot knife to cut off the tip at an acute angle will allow you to spear soft fruit - like sliced Kiwi, citrus, apple, etc.
Chilling your drink to 29 f before you insert the straw will help keep the straw intact for the longest time possible (serving in sub- 32 f environments is dodgy).
