I always buy Diamond, because it is the trusted brand in toothpicks. I buy the box of seven hundred and fifty. It is a good deal and they are very reliable. These come in a blue box and have dark blue lettering. They are great for making party snacks and for serving olives. These toothpicks do not break easily and are a great choice. I also use them for cheese and sausages and many combinations when serving.I even use these in the oven when attaching bacon to my burger steaks. They work perfectly every time. They are great for use when serving dipping sauces because they can be used with little sausages and they make serving easy! There may be alot of other brands but this one, is my favorite. I also use them to decorate my garnish trays and make the dining experience more elegant.I have always considered them an exceprional value and will continue using them. You can get ceative and use your imagination and presentation becomes fun.
