When I’m considering camping and backpacking gear, I’m always looking for things that can do double or triple duty. Carrying camera gear means I’ll never have an ultra-light pack. So I do my best to minimize my pack weight where I can.
Enter the Morsel Spork XL. This handy utensil has a fork with serrated edges on one end and a spoon with a scraper on the other. It’s 10.5 inches long and weighs less than an ounce. I love the length when I’m scraping or scooping out the last of my dehydrated meals. No more dirty fingers or knuckles from trying to dig out that last bit of lasagna. It does seems a little over-sized when mixing up hot drinks in my go to camp mug.
I don’t cook much on the trail. Typically I’m eating things that just require hot water and a little soaking time. I don’t usually carry a cookset, just a JetBoil stove and a camp mug. Occassionally, I’ll fry up some bagels or a tortilla, using the spork to flip them.
If you like all your cooking utensils to fit neatly in your cookset, this spork might be a little long for your tastes. Morsel does offer a 7.5 inch version. My camp kitchen is usually in a stuff sack, so I just throw the spork in with everything else.
The spoon/spatula edge has different profiles on each side, making it easier to scrape out a variety of dishes – camp mugs, bowls, a fry pan, pre-packaged meal bags.
Morsel sporks are made in the USA. Their website states that the sporks are manufactured in California and the packaging in Oregon. I received this product free in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
