The First Truly Distinct Eating Utensil Since the Fork Eliminates Messy Fingers

New York, NY, Nov 26, 2008 /PRNewswire/ — PoiDomani Marketing Products doing business as has introduced what they are calling the first new eating utensil since the three-thousand-year-old fork. This product, sold under their Zenergy Brand™, is called a trong and is sold in pairs. The name trong is a portmanteau of tri and tong and describes its three independent limb tong design.

The inspiration for the trong came when co-inventors Dan Ferrara, Jr. and Eric Zimmermann were eating wings and Dan's phone rang, but he couldn't wipe his fingers clean in time to answer the call. After twelve prototypes and thousands of wings consumed, trongs are in production in the U.S.A. and are being offered for sale to restaurants as a way to enhance the customer experience by serving as a fingers-to-food interface, with their easy to pick-up and put-down design. Trongs are also sold direct to the consumer in packs of 6 pairs (12 individual trongs) via their website -

"We knew that eating wings and ribs requires a limited subset of circumstances: you must be dressed down and with people that you aren't trying to impress. We also knew that there were many 'closet wing eaters' out there who won't eat finger-food in public. With trongs, those limitations are removed, allowing everyone to enjoy messy finger-food anywhere, no matter who is around and how they are dressed", explains Eric Zimmermann who is also the company president.

"This hot new product is a must for everyone from big sports fans to techies who enjoy eating wings and ribs and wants to send a text-message, drink a beverage, or give a high-five. At just $4.99 per pack, this is a bargain and makes a perfect stocking-stuffer," added the company vice president, Dan Ferrara Jr.

The Buffalo style chicken wing was invented at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964 and has become standard fare and often a loss-leader at bars and casual dining establishments.
