Re: OWNER REVIEW of Snow Peak Spork
- Loved the review. A comment and a question:
* You forgot the best thing about owning a spork: being able to say
the word, "spork,"
* Have you found it difficult to not puncture mix-in-bag meal bags? I
find I have to take a plastic spoon anyway when I have these, because
I'm always sporking the bags otherwise.
I think you know what to get mom for Christmas, eh?
