Fresh squeezed spork!
Fresh squeezed spork!

.

Our factory in California has been cranking out sporks as quick as they can since our molds first arrived. As planned, they've been molding sporks (and spoons!) in order of most popular colors and styles, so we can start shipping asap. All of the blue sporks are nearly done, red is wrapping up, and on down through the rainbow.

Per our previous update, we'll be shipping in the same order that our production completes, with orders of blue sporks shipping first, and orders with spoons shipping last. The first shipments will be going out in late September, with the final orders wrapping up mid October. Morsel Mini molds are still in progress, and we're expecting to start shipping Mini in early December. As a reminder, all orders that include a Mini won't ship until then.  

We need to say another big, BIG thank-you to all of our backers. Launching Morsel has been a real rollercoaster - it started off with a simple goal: craft a unique utensil, and share it with the masses. We never imagined that Morsel would receive such an immensely positive response, and we're excited to see everything finally coming to fruition. While there have been some delays, please know that every step of the way we've been pushing our factory to crank out quality sporks as quickly as possible. The massive scale of our first order is taking our factory some time to finish but we're finally on the home stretch. And we promise they'll be worth the wait.  

Spork on, friends.

      What is going on? It is now December 20...still no shipments. Just when can we expect to get our promised shipment?

      Actually, the last update claimed shipping would begin in late September and wrap up in October. It’s now mid October. Has anyone received one? Or tracking info? It’s perfectly ok to expect an update when the previous update seems to not be accurate.

    3. Richard Adams on

      For those that are complaining about lack of update or not receiving their sporks, did you actually read the last update? It said they would be wrapping up shipments by mid october, assuming you didn't add a mini to your order, in that case expect early Dec. So at least wait until Oct 20 if you didn't add any minis or Dec 10 if you did. Until then, what do you need an update for? Its way too early to be crying scam.

      Maybe Someday I will be able to commit something positive about these..But I would have to have one in my hand to be able to do that. My recommendation for future, Stick with your original plan, then add to it after your first orders ship out so your not making your backers continue to wait with no real end it sight. Also. Be honest about your deadlines!

      Has *anyone* received a spoon or fork of any kind? Was really hoping to have this for my backpacking trip next weekend..

      So it’s October and still no tracking info. FYI- it’s best to be transparent with your investors and not blow smoke. Just tell the truth. Give us a REAL update. Seriously.

      There have been an issue with another KS campaign where my survey never went through. I’m doing a head count... has my survey gone through and am I good to go with no further action from me required?

      Thanks for the reply and sorry (I’m Canadian) if I’ve let something fall through the cracks on my end. Sometimes can’t keep all the KS campaigns straight.

      I gotta say - the pink ones in the photo do not look well built - looks like flimsy plastic. Hope that's not the case when I receive them.

      Are any of these shipping yet? Your last update was orders would finish up mid-october. It's been almost 3 weeks since the last update...any news? Trying not to get discouraged...

      I have no issue with the difference between buying and funding. However, pie-in-the-sky promises regarding shipping do backers nor creators any good. Best to just say we're creating and building it, you'll get it when you see the parcel in your mailbox. Artificial and unrealistic deadlines only create animosity and disappointment for those of us funding the projects.

      Mini add-on to morsel 2 pack order etc. should have option of separate shipping. Some would pay the extra buck...

      Looking forward -- and improved quality always beats fulfilling by an old estimated delivery plan. Some commenters really should learn the difference between buying and funding a project.

      So excited! This is going to be great for my work lunches and hiking next year.

      I'm not at the least pleased at how long this process is taking. I was told a few months ago of a deliver date only to be disappointed. The June delivery has gone into September. Delays are expected, but don't give a time frame that you can't stand by. What next? Will we ever get what we paid for?

    16. John c. on

      I thought they would have shipped by now! Perhaps by Christmas I’ll have my order so I can gift myself for next years hiking season! I’m not very happy about this additional delay in shipping. Not much I can do though!

      Is there anyway we can still order the minis. I saw my order was now locked. Just curious.

    18. Kim B. Lewis on

      Thought if ordered mini would have 2 ship dates

    19. Gene Garza Jr on

      Thanks for the update. I'm very excited!

    20. Srael Cohen on

      Ok so when's the shipping date?
