Finger Sporks!

I have finger sporks and you don’t!

Well, maybe you do. I’m not sure. Regardless, using two or more fingers to hold an eating utensil is for suckers. Because all you need is one finger.

We all know that the beloved spork is a combination fork and spoon. And these bad boys slide on your finger like a little finger puppet that you can use to eat with. I wouldn’t recommend using four at one time – I just wanted to show off the full selection of colors.

I bought these when I was in Portland, at the Freakybuttrue Peculiarium, but you can also buy them online, for less than $5. I couldn’t resist them, because I love playing with my food, whether it’s making a Stonehenge out of cantaloupe, carving a watermelon into a shark, or holding a funeral for an egg.

Speaking of eggs – they’re just one of many foods I’ve enjoyed with my finger sporks. Mmm… scrambled eggs!

Steamed vegetables!

Post-workout yogurt alternative!

Salmon with riced cauliflower!

Like all sporks, it works better as a spoon than it does as a fork, but that’s a minor quibble. I don’t eat all my meals with a finger spork, but it’s a fun way to occasionally switch things up. It also forces me to eat slower, which I like, because I tend to wolf food down. Like a wolf. Eating slower makes the meal more satisfying, and some experts say that it leads to better digestion and hydration. And those are all good things!

Keep it up, David!

    David, I’m sure you have gotten many responses to your definition of the spork being a combination of a fork and a knife, but just in case you haven’t I thought I would mention that it is a combination of a spoon and fork. 😊 Not that it matters, since you are having fun with it anyway! Be well!!

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only person in the world who eats that many veggies at a time. You could draw smiley faces on the sporks with a sharpie if you get bored. I don’t know if it would come off with the food so maybe just draw on retired sporks.
