Chopstick Trainers for Grownups

Inspired by our recent story of a 72-year-old Chinese American man who’s dined at nearly 8,000 Chinese restaurants but still can’t use chopsticks, may we suggest a Bayou Breeze chopstick trainer? It slips on a pair of chopsticks and makes it easy to pinch and grab food.
