I'm looking for those clear sticks that are normally used for chocolate covered marshmallows but i'd like to see if i can use them for chocolate dipped cookies as well. The sticks have 2 prongs to stick into the marshmallow. Anyone know where i can find these sticks?

Sounds like a plastic shrimp or seafood fork. I think you can find them at a party supply store, most of them carry them.

I've seen those at party stores in different colors.

Did this search and could not find the clear colored 2-pronged forks. The closest are 3 pronged white forks and they are also longer.

I googled two pronged forks and came up with this site

mel, thank you. I had checked them before and they only have dipping forks that are too long. (also no colors or translucency)

JanH, thank you. I had seen these and they are the closest but they only come in ivory and are also not translucent (i think it looks fancier to use the ones in the pic).

I'm starting to think that the site where i found the pic is having them made exclusively for them?

Partycity has the same fancy design in translucent colors (no clear), and partypro has clear ones but the handle is flat and not fancy.

I emailed www.zeldas.net (which is where luvtobake6 had seen them) and they refuse to give out any vendor names as to where they get these forks. It really makes me angry when people do that. Like I am going to put them out of business if I buy some of those forks. I then asked them if I could buy some of them from them and they asked how many I needed, I told them and they said no, they need all there stock, like they can't buy more. NOT very nice people.

I saw some small white ones in my grocery store by the paper plates, cups and straws.

Looks like these are from Australia, price is great, don't know about shipping, but they are the same thing. Tell Zelda what they can do with their forks and their attitude. I hate rude people too.

Thanks so much. And I did tell Zelda's where to go in a not so nasty way.

That's it!!! I can't believe you found them!

I hate to have caused negative publicity for zeldas. I was merely looking for silly forks. On one hand i feel bad, but on the other hand, what would've been so bad to give their source or even to sell them themselves?
