The utensil has its own website (www.thechork.com
, duh) where you can buy 24-count and 12-count packs of them. The site says the Chork is the creation of the Brown Innovation Group, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, whose mission statement is to develop “cost effective, innovative products capable of simplifying daily tasks.”
The Chork basically looks like a pair of chopsticks connected by a fork on the non-chopping end. You can snap the chopsticks apart or use them with the fork head still attached, a form the website calls “cheaters," presumably because it eases eating for the chopstick challenged.
When will you see them at Panda Express?
The chain released a statement about the utensil to First We Feast that says it apparently hasn’t fully committed to introducing them yet.
“While Chorks are not currently available at Panda Express locations," the chain told the site, "there is a possibility that they will make their way into stores in the future.”
Here's the campy how-to video from the Chork's creators
