The Shark Tank Gadget That's Ending Greasy Snack Fingers For Good

Nothing beats curling up on the couch at the end of a long day with your favorite cheesy snacks. The sensation of ripping open a bag of bright orange goodies is enough to get any snack lover's heart racing. Salty, crunchy, and compulsively edible, what's not to love? Not to mention, you always have a wealth of options to choose between when walking down the snack aisle, including Doritos, Cheetos, Goldfish, and Pirate's Booty.

The one downside to these tasty treats? The dreaded aftermath that comes with eating them. While the snack table may be the best place to take refuge at a socially awkward party, it's impossible to escape the experience without trace evidence of bright orange fingers. The only solution to this problem for a long time was to either lick your fingers or wash your hands. But two "Shark Tank" contestants may have an even better resolution to your dusty finger woes (via Food Beast).

The Shark Tank judges were blown away by the simple snacking hack

From Stasher storage bags to the WISP broom set, there have been many ingenious kitchen tools we've seen on "Shark Tank" in the past. One of the most successful products, the Scrub Daddy sponge, has made more than $209 million in sales and can be frequently seen in households across the globe (per Investopedia). 

On Season 13, Episode 12 of "Shark Tank," Kevin Cho and Edwin Choi presented another groundbreaking kitchen-gadget innovation: Snactiv. "It streamlines snacking and keeps your hands and devices clean while you're working, gaming, typing, texting, or swiping," Choi explained (via Food Beast). "It's like having an extra pair of fingers."

When asked how he came up with the idea, Cho said he was inspired by the pandemic. Working remotely meant eating many meals and afternoon snacks at his desk in front of the computer. "I was working from home, I was snacking, I found myself licking my fingers and wiping it on my shirt, I was touching my mouth, my keyboard, it was disgusting."

The judges were impressed by Choi and Cho's idea, with Mark Cuban calling Snactiv "timely and perfect" and Kevin Hart referring to the product as "easy, simple, and fun." The product is currently listed at $14.99 on the Snactiv website.
