Go Buggy on Etsy.com (http://www.gobuggy.etsy.com/) makes charming felted and stuffed food. I am torn between the bucket of fish and the double skewers as my favorite, but I think the mushroom on the skewer is darling enough to take it to the top.

Yes, I could do the Macgyver and tie a rubber band around some paper to anchor the sticks together - but World Wide Fred's CHIMPSTICKS are a much cuter way to go (http://www.worldwidefred.com/).
Need a sugar fix but I don't want to undo the hard work at the gym?
