    Promising review: "I bought this for my best friend and she LOVES IT. She loves Oreos. She only eats cookies when she has milk and we all know how messy things can get when full submersion is necessary. She keeps her DipR in the package of Oreos she's working on and it keeps her hands mess-free. I'm pretty sure I've seen her use the DipR more times than I've seen her use a spoon or fork... Oh well, we all have things to work on." —Lindsay
