Soup Sticks - Chopstick/Straw Combo

By: on September 16, 2013

Not that I won't still slop flecks of Pho juice all over myself while eating the noodles, but at least Soup Sticks will eliminate the liquid deluge I incur when I've consumed all of its chunky bits and move to drink straight from the bowl. Julian Lechner's resourceful design fuses everything I love about chopsticks with everything I love about straws--namely their combined ability to quickly transport solids and liquids to my mouth.

Preorder your Soup Sticks by emailing Lechner directly. Costs are not disclosed online. Because one cannot put a price on utensils that revolutionize the consumption of Asian delights.

Muchas danke to The Green Head.
