Sticky Fingers

Chip FingersAn enterprising businessman has ruined the phrase “Finger Lickin’ Good” for everyone. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you “Chip Fingers.”

Chip Fingers (not to be confused with Trongs, which are for eating ribs and hot wings) are little silicone finger covers that prevent you from getting Cheetos dust all over your fingers. They’re one size fits all, washable and reusable, and allegedly “available at your favorite retail store,” although I didn’t see them anywhere at Toys R Us.

Now I don’t know about you, but the last thing I need is food condoms. I wash my hands after I scratch my groin. Usually.

Part of the fun of eating Cheetos, BBQ potato chips, and anchovies is licking your – or someone else’s – fingertips afterward. Or, if you’re my youngest son, you wipe your hands on your school pants. Because, you know, orange goop is oh so easy to get out of polyester pants.

  1. Steph – I don’t mind it, but when I have a meal, my food cannot touch beach other. Gives me the willies.

    Cathy – Or, if Latino, hot sauce. (Phrasing!)
