I have been doing cookie bouquets for childrens birthday parties.They use them as a centerpiece and the kids all get to take a cookie out of the bunch before they head home. I use the long sticks from WalMart and they really have a sharp pointed end that I push up into the cookies. I began to wonder if they could be a problem for little children, and all the lawsuits these days.
Has anyone had a bad experience with these and is this what everyone else uses.
Thanks for your input.

If I ever need to use skewers, I put the blunt end into the cookie and use the pointed end to push into the styrofoam, or just cut it off with clean utility sissors. Better to be safe.

I started to use skewers because I liked the size. But that thought also occurred to me. So I just use the regular cookie pop stick now.

I sometimes use the skewers too but always cut the sharp tip off. Sometimes you get a few stray fibers that stick out if you cut the end off but they easily peel off leaving the stick smooth again. And I always stick the more blunt end into the cookie.

I did the same with cutting off the sharp end and using that part to stick into the foam. But i stopped using them cuz i though the cookies needed more support to help them stand?
