Ok...maybe it is a stretch to credit a utensil with making a trip fun - but let's face it. When packing up for a picnic, camping trip or even in an rv kitchen like ours (we live in a travel trailer full time), it can be fun to have "special gear" set aside just for those times. Sporks are almost as hip as cool marshmallow roasting skewers!
When I camped with my dad as a kid, we had everything we needed for our rugged trips already set aside. You didn't touch them unless packing them into the jeep. Special pots, camping gear and more were sacred...carefully put away when tearing down camp and excitedly unveiled when setting up in the campground.
Sporks have an outdoor feel to them - like you are meant to enjoy them during special times. This magic can take place in your own home, when introducing this "alien utensil" to a child who rebels at mealtimes...because it something new and exciting to eat with. They can add elegance and class to a backyard BBQ where you entertain family and friends. And, of course, they can be packed up with the tent, backpack and other camping equipment, only to appear during special trips.
But a spork or foon, as you can see, is perfect for everyday use in your home as well. Such a simple design, yet sporks deliver so much more than just bringing your food to your mouth!
