Footage from the Long Island, New York launch of trongs.
A trong is a utensil that is designed for eating finger-food such as wings and ribs. They are made of a disposable material, but they can be re-used if washed.
The concept of trongs came about when the inventors, Dan and Eric, were working late on a different project. The decided to take a break and go out for some wings. Just as they dug in, Dan's cell-phone rang (in his pocket). He couldn't answer it because his fingers were full of hot sauce. That was the moment that Dan and Eric knew the world was missing an obvious utensil.
