I have seen people use pretzel sticks to spear pieces of fruit and cheese.

I also ran across these on the net when I googled edible toothpicks, too pricey for your old Aunt Bea!

Good luck!

I think almost any food-pick would soften with the moisture in the mouth and get stuck between the teeth requiring a real tooth pick or dental floss to remove it from it's lodging. But if there is a real need, a noodle/pasta product might work for a fleeting few seconds.

Agreed.
