Have you ever used Bear Claws in the kitchen? Before last week, I never really thought about a tool like this, and had no idea what I was missing out on. I just used my forks, and knives to pull meat apart, and my hand to hold the watermelon as I cut a million slices off for the kids! Well, I’m happy to say, I have seen the light. I’m bringing myself, and my kitchen into the modern world with Taste N Create,s fun Bear Claws! Hallelujah! 

If you are parent to boys, then you can probably guess what my boys did as soon as I pulled these babies out of their handy little velvet drawstring bag. Yep…they put them on, and pretended they were Wolverine! They even asked to use them for Halloween! Oh boy! 

I have to say, these are a good tool to get the guys to help more in the kitchen.

I made thesse yummy pulled pork sandwiches in the crock pot the other day. Thinking the claws would be fun to try out, I plopped my pork roast on the cutting board, and dug in. I’m telling you, these claws just attract the guys. My husband was in awe over these claws! As they were a new toy for me, I hogged them for myself. Next time though, I’m delegating. 

Once I was done pulling the pork, I grabbed my claws, turned them around and scooped the meat up to put back in the sauce. Now, that’s handy! Anytime there is a convenient tool that saves me from washing more dishes…I’m in! 


Have you ever worried a little about your hand that’s holding onto the wobbly watermelon, just inches away from the butcher knife? The Bear Claws are perfect for that, too! Just sink the Bear Claws teeth into the watermelon to hold theit, and no worries for you anymore, my friend! Phew! 

If you’d like to try some claws out for yourself, you can use this link to get you some! 😉
