When I first heard of a spork it was at Taco Bell. I was little and thought it was the niftiest little thing ever created. Like how genius? A spoon and a fork all in one. Well I’m here to tell you that that nifty idea has gotten so much better now. Morsel Spork has created a spork that is one of a kind. You won’t want to go on any hiking or backpacking trip without this nifty piece of gear ever again.

ABOUT THE MORSEL SPORK
When backpacking or hiking your goal is to always pack light. I get it. The less weight you have to carry the better, right? Well now you can leave all of your utensils behind and only bring Morsel Spork. Here is why!
The Morsel Spork is multi-functional. It is a spoon, fork, spatula, knife, and long in length. Long is a huge plus when you are eating dehydrated meals or MRE’s. I always used a short fork and spoon and always got my hands all dirty while eating. It was such a pain cause not only am I limited to a water source to wash my hands in the backcountry but I also usually made a mess trying to scoop out my food. I can be a little messy like that when eating out of a pouch. Morsel Spork, however, has some very great features to defeat all the odds.
THE FORK SIDE
The fork part of the Morsel Spork makes a functional fork with a long length and a much stronger handle. On the side of the fork is a serrated edge making it easy for you to cut through your food. You can easily cut through certain foods like fruits and some vegetables.
THE RUBBER EDGES ON THE SPATULA SIDE
It always seemed that every time I ate, I always left food at the bottom of the pouch. I hated that. Not anymore. The Morsel Spork has six different edge uses making it easier for you to scoop out all of your food no matter the kind of crevasse it is.
- DEEP REACH: The deep reach spork makes it easy for you to reach all of the food in your pouch or container. Note: They do have two different lengths for you to choose from.
- TIGHT CORNERS: The tight corner edge makes it for you to scoop the food stuck on those tight little edges that you can’t reach with a regular spoon.
- ODD SHAPES: The opposite edge makes it easier for you to scoop food on oddly shaped areas such as bowls and the walls of food pouches.
- FLAT EDGES: The flat edge can help you not only reach the tight corners but also any flat surface. It can also be used as a spatula or for mixing as well.
- LIP EDGES: The top of the flat edge of the spatula side makes it easy for you to scrape the lip of your bowl.
- TALL WALLS: The side used for odd shapes is also convenient for tall dishes and food pouches helping you reach every bit of food you have and not leave any little bit behind.
The Morsel Spork is also dishwasher and boiling water safe, ultra tough, BPA Free, and FDA Food Grade Material approved.

THE PROS AND CONS OF MORSEL SPORK
Before writing this review of the Morsel Spork I decided to take it for the test. Like you already know, I won’t recommend something to my readers and followers if I personally don’t like it. Here is my experience with the Morsel Spork.
While Morsel Spork is tested in many environments, I decided to test it while cooking as well. This was the only down side. The fork side of the spork held up to the heat of my cooking stove pretty well but the spatula side not so much so if you do want to cook with it, I recommend using the fork side of the spork and not the spatula side. After all it is mainly created for eating versus cooking.
I also used the spork to eat multiple meals. I used it to eat some scrambled eggs for breakfast, oatmeal, and a dehydrated meal from Outdoor Pantry. It worked great and I was able to eat every last bit of my food. When I ate from my dehydrated meal I found that I didn’t get my hands dirty thanks to the long length of my spork. I also was able to scoop out every bit of my food in the pouch. I used the spork as well to cut some strawberries and it worked fairly well. Definitely made life easier on the campground and on the trail. It is also very durable meaning I don’t have to worry about it bending or breaking in my pack. I literally just through the spork in my pack without thinking twice of the other gear that was on top of it. It never bent or broke during my hiking trip that day.
MORSEL SPORK’S PRODUCTS
Morsel Spork has various different products. I personally tested the Morsel Spork Mini and the Morsel Spork XL which can also be found in a combo pack option here. I like them both. The only difference between the Mini and the XL is the length. The XL would be more convenient for backpacking cause it has a deeper reach due to it’s long length while the Mini is shorter in length making it a little harder to reach at the bottom of your food pouches.
They also have a Morsel XL Spoon which only consists of the spatula/spoon side of the spork. You can learn more about it here.
