    Comments about CHOPSTICK REST & CHOPSTICKS:

    it's perfect for chopsticks, and the glazed finish makes it easy to clean up. I was a little sad that two of the 'beans' had the same face, but turned one upside down so now they look different, haha.

      Comments about CHOPSTICK REST & CHOPSTICKS:

      I purchased this as a gift for a friend, we are big into making new and different meals, and we enjoy using chopsticks for our asian inspired dishes. It was exactly what i thought it would, and i am satisfied. The only negative thing was that I was under the impression you had the option of ordering it with chopsticks, witch i did and did not recieve.

        a great little chopstick set. A better alternative to the wooden ones and in my quest to become more eco friendly.

            So, I basically bought these to go with the so 'dorable edamame chopstick holders as a gift - and haven't heard anything back to say they aren't perfectly serviceable chopsticks (and my son would have mentioned it, ever so discreetly!)

                I purchased these adorable beans as a birthday gift. They are even cuter in person than in the catalog. Make sure to get the cool chopsticks to complete the set....fun, functional and unique!

                    Will probably never use but just to display. It makes people laugh!
