Everyone in the discussion seems to be losing their mind about the Sesame Street Cutlery shown above. The Spoon Big Bird, Fork Bert and Knife Ernie are a good looking set of flatware to say the least.
We’ve looked everywhere and are unable to source them for sale unless you want a second hand set from e-bay. I doubt they are dishwasher safe and to be completely honest they are probably made from old school pewter with lead or some other junk metal. Hopefully not. But it they do it would explain the antics over at Reddit.
The discussion about this cutlery we linked to above at Reddit went so far off the rails that this happened:
It seems if you start to talk about treasured childhood icons people really start to lose their minds.
So, what can I learn from this about cutlery you ask? Well, we did learn that children really get possessive about things like the flatware they eat with. To that point that they would refuse to eat anything at all without their magical Big Bird Spoon. So firstly make sure to buy three sets of said magic cutlery when they show this tendency. And second make sure to carry a set in your bag when you are out and about eating at a restaurant or as a guest.
So the video above was recently posted on Reddit. And being self proclaimed cutlery experts and cookie experts as well, we went digging to find this wonderful Oreo fork. And well….here’s what we did find:
These forks are the closest we could find to the Oreo Fork in the video above. Googling hasn’t helped us either. We implore you, our readers, to leave comment below if you have found more info on the Oreo fork. We don’t want this to be another Nutella Knife situation!
Right off the bat, let’s be clear that this was a limited edition and if your reading this you missed your chance to get one. But we are hoping the success means a return?
This interesting piece of custom cutlery was created to ease the suffering a cross-contamination when making Vegemite toast.
From Vegemite’s marketing manager Jacqui Roth:
“Aussies are opening up their jars of Vegemite to find that butter has somehow made its way in. We can’t have that. So, we’re introducing a solve – the limited-edition ‘Vegeknife’. The limited-edition Vegeknife is a dual headed cutlery breakthrough, with one end for butter and one end for Vegemite – so now, there’s no reason to get butter in the Vegemite jar.”
Much like the Nutella knife it was a limited edition piece of flatware made by and for marketing. Let’s hope it returns.
