There's Actually A Use For That Small Block Of Wood On The End Of Your Chopsticks

There's Actually A Use For That Small Block Of Wood On The End Of Your Chopsticks

I'm not a fan of chopsticks. I know they create the whole 'authentic' feeling when you're tucking into your takeaway, but I've never thought they were better than a knife and fork.

But for everyone who has, I have some important news for you.

You know that seemingly useless extra block of wood on the end of them? Well, there's actually a reason it exists

It's not just there to keep the sticks connected. It isn't a simple manufacturing mistake that was never remedied.

As it turns out, it actually acts as a rest for your chopsticks, so the end that goes in your mouth doesn't have to touch the germ-ridden table when you put them down.

So next time you're halfway into some Kung Pao Chicken, but fancy taking a break to throw a spring roll into your mouth, make sure you've kept that block of wood. Your health may depend on it.
