Straw fork / Fork

Straw fork
Straw fork

People casually go to fast food restaurants to grab some food and mostly order fries, onion rings, or French fries as their side menu. However, unlike burgers which come in wrapped papers, fries are often very oily and too hot to eat right away. Moreover, it is very unhygienic in that customers are eating dirt and germs along with their finger foods and touch their cellular phones after eating. Straw fork is made out of polypropylene which, widely used for producing straw, it has high elasticity. In contrast to the ordinary forks, this fork is not a flat shape. It has a rounded curvy out line in order to poke easily crushable foods.
