Innovation: The cardboard Doofer

What does it do?

It holds your big, messy burger together as you are eating it.

What problem does it solve?

It prevents burger fillings from falling out everywhere, and it stops all the juices and sauces from dripping all over your hands.

A success?

It's patented. The cardboard used to make 'em is 100 percent recyclable and biodegradable. It makes your burger less of a chore to devour, and it ensures your clothing or table remains free of fragments of burger.
