The idea is, if you can’t cop salt on your fingers from the good ol’ Smith’s Crisps, or maybe the artificially-flavoured synthetic cheese dust on Twisties or Cheezles gives you the willies, these fingertip covers will keep delicate digits free of brightly coloured food additives or naturally occurring polysaturates.
They’re made from food-grade silicone which is easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and can be placed in boiling water to disinfect.
Spices and condiments smeared all over shared snack treats is part of what made this country great – that and backwashing into a bottle of Coke before passing it to a mate. Why would anyone avoid the pollensized particles of Twisties goodness? It’s unAustralian!
If you want to proceed down this ludicrous and, frankly, unpatriotic path, log on to desertcart.com.au. For an undisclosed price you can have a set sent to your door.
But how will you open them? What if you get unsightly dust from the letterbox on your delicate little hands?
For crying out loud. This is exactly the kind of thing our ancestors fought against at the Paprika Stockade.
