Folding Spoon Fork Combo

I picked up this "insulated food jar" made by "mainstays" at Wal-Mart tonight for $3. What caught my eye was the top that boldly stated, "Bonus spoon and fork combination" Inside the lid was a folded up fork...spoon looking thingy. I had to get one and see what was going on. The jar was pretty much worthless. The spoon / fork combo was neat though. it measures 3 1/4" folded and 6" extended. The lock is fairly sturdy. I wish the other materials were a bit stronger, but for basic noodle stirring and eating it should work fine. For $3, I was impressed. I took pictures of the thing and made a short video in which I fold, unfold, and bend it. I'm going to cook some ramen tonight and see how it holds up to boiling water.

Here is the video link:

Looks fairly strong. Give a good test under hot water conditions lifting a fork full of Ramen a few times. I like the way it locks. Nice find :D

Just got done cooking some ramen noodles. The thing works great for it. It's not quite as stiff as a taco bell spork, but not as brittle either. It resists heat incredibly well too. I was surprised. I noticed no bending.

If it passed your test, it'll do just fine for my wife.......she's a gadgeteer that fills every nook and cranny in our camp kitchen. I know she can find a place for it. :D Thanks for filling us in on your Wal-Mart treasure. :D

When its a steal of a deal, what can I say. I've been known to buy 30 -40 of an item when it is at a hot hot price. Stumpjumper is ready for any food shortage as he picked up 140 jars of peanutbutter when we had a hot sale on them :o . He'll never get through them. I told him to put a couple jars in each of the Christmas baskets he makes up for the needy. ;)
