The Simple Joys of a Toothpick
What can we say? We know a little something about making a darn-good toothpick. Why shouldn’t we? We’ve been enjoying them for as long as we can remember. “Wearing a toothpick” isn’t for everyone. Perhaps it’s a Midwest community thing, like tipping your chair back in moments of contemplation or the unspoken “I’m-in-a-truck-and-your-in-a-truck- so-we-do-a-head-nod thing.” Whatever it is, our enjoyment of a good toothpick was important enough for us to take notes and begin making our own.
Under Pressure to Create the Perfect ‘Pick
We wanted a toothpick strong enough to withstand a little chomping but porous enough to absorb our favorite flavors. The drawing board got pretty messy at times, but we finally perfected our craft in 2007 and began selling our “pressure-infused” flavored toothpicks. Our unique process of using pressure ensures that each fiber of the wood is exposed to the flavoring. This makes for a more intense, long-lasting, and evenly-distributed flavor.
Feelin’ pretty pleased with ourselves (and our ‘picks), we experimented with more infusions – new flavors, caffeine, vitamins, and finally, Walla.....we had the perfect flavored toothpick with Caffeine and B12!!!! With so many of our employees, friends, and family using toothpicks to curb all sorts of cravings…we’re surprised we didn’t think of it sooner.
Our Unique Selling Point
Our toothpicks are better for a few good reasons. The first is how we make it. Our toothpicks are infused with the ingredients, so every fiber of the toothpicks is infused with flavor. Most toothpicks lose their flavor within a few minutes. Because our toothpicks are infused with a unique process, the taste remains no matter how long you chem/suck on them. That is the biggest reason. No one on the market can maintain flavor the whole time it is in your mouth. You can leave it in your mouth for hours or take it out and put the toothpick back in later, and the flavor will still be there. Also, we spent a lot of time picking out the right toothpick; believe it or not, there are several brands and types of toothpicks with a whole host of shapes and sizes. Unlike others, Our toothpicks are in airtight tubes with an additional seal over the top for freshness.
