Blue pork sushi – When toothpicks go bad

I first posted about these delicious little pork rolls more than 2 years ago and since then, I’ve made them several times. They’re quick, taste good, and are great for using in lunches the next day.

It’s not uncommon for me to use colored toothpicks and you can see that all of them here even have multicolored sticks:

It wasn’t until the last time I made them, though, with a different brand of toothpicks, that I ran into issues. Check out these:

So if you’re the type that’s worried about the chemicals and dyes in our food, beware that some of those toothpicks will bleed colors. I doubt the tiny amount is harmful, but it’s still worth noting, especially if the kids have any sensitivities.
