I'm happy to intoduce* troothpicks. Over 2 years have gone into developing a printing technique, phrases, logos, website, packaging, and more. I'm proud of the result. I think you will be impressed.

Troothpicks are essentially phrases (proverbs, fortunes, sayings) printed on toothpicks. The idea started as having something to fill the role of fortune cookies at non-Chinese restaurants and quickly blossomed into what it is today. Troothpicks are great for pre-dinner hors d'oeuvres, after dinner picking, and everything in between. They are also great for gifts, esp. for anyone you know who loves to entertain. You can get them for all occasions (birthday, holidays, graduations, etc.) or you can create your own custom picks with your business name on them or custom messages for your event. More information, photos, and how to order can be found at the website

For anyone who shares my enthusiasm for this product (and who couldn't?), I would love to have you tell your friends about the website. And if you have a non-themed* blog on which a post about a clever product that makes people smile might fit (Dave, Amanda, Andrew, Ryan, Myke, Blake, Saxtor*, I'm looking your way here), I would be ever so much appreciative if you found it in your hearts to maybe mention troothpicks in a post. I'd be happy to return the favor* if you ever have a word that needs spreading.

Always something on the pot, huh wren. Is this your company, or did you just design the website?

Dave, this is my company. I'm the founder, president, factory worker, marketer, engineer, and janitor. (Oh, but I did kind of borrow the idea from a certain Mr. Goss at Bates.)

Excellent! I will write something about it this weekend for my four loyal readers and will keep it in mind the next time I am having a wine and cheese party.

Those are great pictures on the troothpicks website! Professionally done and all! Cheers to your photographer. By the way, As your "beta" tester, I demand a small cut of your profits, say $5, (or should I say 50%!!! ha! no, I am sure you will make millions). you know, with the weak dollar, I would suggest marketing overseas, say in canada or alaska.

Quirky idea. Thank you Mr. Goss :) Regulators has been taken down, otherwise I'd be all over posting on this product. I just hope that you get more than one toothpick out of each sequoia you cut down :)
