McDonalds doesn't have foam anymore.

They're not there, yet.

The local ones here are def still using foam cups, though they have a paper sleeve wraparound glued to the foam so it's not as apparent at a glance. They are probably using up their backstock. But they absolutely have a foam core.

We must go through coffee cups faster in my area then. I haven't seen foam in ages.

I don't know if you lived in L.A. at that time but I was raised in L.A. I don't remember the anything tasting like paper.

We had the paper straws in Pasadena, but I am younger than you.

I remember paper straws from the 50s & 60s they were formed of an overlapping spiral of paper and waxed so they didn't fall apart. Narrow white straws for school milk or
wide red and white stripe paper straws for sodas and milkshakes. They held up well. Even for shooting spitballs.
