Do I detect the faint aroma of a scam?

Nah there's usually two lots of excuses on a kickstarter before it becomes obviously a scam.

I'm fairly confident they'll deliver, eventually. Though I'm not entirely convinced of the usefulness/quality of the product. As a backer, I hope it doesn't suck. As a skeptic, I'm not going to bank on it.

:shrug: It's an advert.  ALWAYS take whatever the manufacturer claims with a pinch of salt.

Yup, that's what I do. Take whatever the manufacturer claims with a pinch of salt. I discover most of them lie! This one in particular:

Which bit is the lie? the no salt, no sugar or the crunchy? It looks like a smooth one to me

The most recent update estimated they'd ship the first or second week of March, which we've just passed. I think their original estimates were quite ambitious, as it seems this is a whole new area of manufacturing for them. One of the many pitfalls of crowdfunding I guess.

Excerpts from the March 22nd update for backers only;

Quote
After some color powder shipping delays, many test shoots, and waiting our turn in queue for manufacturing we have finally been able to get all the details correct and the first Firefly batch is now in production.

The final test run formula of the ivory color turned out very nice.  Here is a picture of samples of the two final colors as they will be produced.  We've set Fireflies at different angles in the picture so you can see how they are firmly attached to the custom flint steel by injection molding. 



Quote
The first production batch run will be completed by mid week next week. This first run will fulfill all of the January reward orders and the second run will start immediately after.

We plan to start shipping on Friday of next week when the first batch of completed Fireflies arrives to us.  We will ship out all of the January rewards first and then work our way down the list until we finish with the April orders.  There are over 3,000 orders to ship out so it will take some time but we hope to have all rewards shipped out by the end of April if all goes well.

I still don't see how those are going to stay in the slot.  Current toothpick has a bump that holds it in.

The force!

Well I guess the answer is friction.  Which will get less as you use it.

Of those of you starting to receive them, if you want to sell just one, I'd be interested.
Hope this comment isn't inappropriate.
