Since a straw is made of very cheap plastic maybe its better to use 2 of them, by inserting them one in another you seal them at both end, way before,
Plus they are reusable. You just need to fold the straw a litle bit, you loose a very small ammout of space but its water proof again. Putting cotton
wool to make sure the food is not altered by the burned parts of the straw is a good idea(like an above poster mentioned).
Also you not necessarily need to burn both end of the straw. If you're storage allow to put the straws in a triangular way, you can insert both end
of the same straw into each other and tape it but i think its gonna be a mess to open tho .
