It was a big hard one that fits in my Camelback water container.

Hot soup slurped through the straw hits your tongue all at once, unlike when you carefully and slowly sip hot soup from a spoon. NL and I each tried several times and it didn't work well for either one of us. You can get a sense of it if you try drinking hot coffee or tea through a straw.
