Eating Finger Covers

These Latex Finger Gloves are Designed to be Worn While Eating Fast Food

— December 13, 2015 — Lifestyle
Innovative creative Francesco Musci designed a series of latex finger covers that provide eaters with clean finger tips while enjoying greasy or fast food. The covers are made from a variety of colorful latex and are ideal to keep hands clean from grease, oil and messy food products.

While eating on-the-go is a priority for many consumers, a large quantity of the dishes tend to be finger food that is easy to consume in small increments of time. To ensure that consumers don't stain their hands while they eat, Musci put together a series of latex finger covers that wrap around the finger tip to the knuckle. The plastic covers are incredibly thin giving a natural feel while keeping hands clean from messy foods.
Trend Themes
1. Latex Finger Covers for Eating - Provide an opportunity for companies to create innovative packaging or promotional items that incorporate these finger covers for fast food consumption.
2. Convenient, Quick-food Consumption Trend - Fast-food and convenience stores can benefit from this trend by incorporating these finger covers into their takeout products, providing a cleaner and more enjoyable eating experience for customers.
3. Eco-friendly Disposable Trends - Creating disposable latex finger covers that are biodegradable or made from alternative materials can tap into the growing demand for eco-friendly products.
Industry Implications
1. Fast Food Industry - Fast food and casual restaurants can leverage this innovation by offering complementary or promotional finger covers with takeout orders to promote cleanliness and enhance the customer experience.
2. Event Planning Industry - Incorporating these finger covers into events with finger foods such as weddings and corporate events can provide a more hygienic eating experience for guests.
3. Medical Industry - The medical industry can use these finger covers to provide patients with a sanitary way of consuming food and reduce the risk of infection or germs spreading.
