The toothpicker is one of the oldest human tools. It has been around forever but has never really been reinvented. Right now the toothpick is making a huge comeback, and we're thrilled about it.
The toothpicks available right now are quite boring. They're usually cheap. And when it tastes like anything, it's artificial flavors. So that's why I came up with the idea reinventing the toothpick experience. And Castor—double flavored toothpick—was born!
With Castor, you now have two flavors that mix together in your mouth, creating the perfect pairing. One pops right in, while the other cruises out for a long-lasting effect.
Hey guys, my name is David, founder of PhoodStation. We're in Montreal working on new food products. Behind this project we have a dream team. There's Diane, industrial designer and head of R&D; Kenny, the numbers guy; Jennifer, chef and nutritionist; and of course, there's me.
嘿各位，我的名字是 David，PhoodStation 的創辦人。我們在蒙特婁(加拿大城市)致力於全新食品研發。在這項企劃後我們有個夢幻隊伍。這是 Diane，工業設計師和研發主管；Kenny，管數字的傢伙；Jennifer，主廚和營養師；還有當然，有我。
We started this project with five goals: have a high quality, affordable toothpick, use all natural ingredients, design a pocket-size packaging, create kick-ass flavor, and have a Canadian product.
We work with different types of aromas and dehydrate it, everything around us, changing ratios and concentrations. The honey wasn't standing out enough, so we add up to the recipe. Habanero pepper was, well, it was doing a thing like there's no tomorrow, so we calm it down a bit.
Chefs and caterers told us that it would be great to make the flavored toothpicks longer and thicker than standard. It makes them perfect for individual usage as well as for serving olive in cocktails.
After four months of test and retest, we are proud to present you this amazing new product. We achieved all our goals, and created the unique method that gives the toothpick long-lasting double flavors, aroma and powder working together as a team: team awesome!
We selected these flavor combination from more than a hundred recipes with tests in our lab. You can taste them, stick them in your food, share them, or break them like the Japanese do.
We're from Montreal. Creativity is all around us and the food scene is just amazing here. Talent and inspiration is everywhere. With all these good vibes, the conditions are perfect for a project like Castor. Now we're ready to launch our production, and that's where you come in.
我們來自蒙特婁。我們身邊全是創造力，這裡的食物光景就是很讚。到處都是天賦和靈感來源。有了所有這些合適的氛圍，這些條件對於像是 Castor 的企劃來說相當完美。現在我們準備好要推出我們的產品，而這正是你可以加入的地方。
Well, this is all quite expensive. We need 35,000 dollars. But before, we want to know if you like it, so please give us your feedback. Castor is giving the toothpick a complete makeover like never before.
So let's make this happen, and thank you for watching.
