Perhaps it might have been used to extract the kernels from the molds? The tool is only about 3 inches long with a wooded handle. Just curious as to what it could have been used for. Have pictures if you would like to see it.

Every time we have a bag in the house, we knock it all out within one day. I like to eat them color by color, from the large yellow bottom, to the orange middle, then the white tip. I used to think they all tasted different; I sometimes still pretend they do. :)
