Expensive and somewhat heavy and cumbersome.

Those look a lot like some red color strawberry flavored candies I have eaten decades ago.

But the candies never had a string on the end, that would be a choking hazard.

Coghlans offers very similar stakes to the MSR Groundhogs at a lesser price but I suspect they're made from a lesser grade aluminum as I had one bend when trying to beat on it into some rocky soil. Most of the time they worked just fine and can save you some coin.
