Ice cream too hard? No more

Ice cream too hard? No more

TOKYO —

We’ve probably all experienced that struggle, that anguish – you go to eat your ice cream only to discover it’s still frozen solid and your spoon can only make pathetic little dents in it. The folks at Lemnos Co could not let this injustice go unaddressed, and have invented a special spoon to do the job.

Under the unassuming brand name “15.0%” – coming from the fact that ice cream has 15% or higher fat content - the aluminum of this spoon utilizes the heat from your hand to promptly melt the ice cream and solve the problem of it not being in your mouth.

The spoon’s designer may have had some traumatic ice cream-related experiences that moved him to take action. “You can’t eat it when it’s frozen solid. But if you wait, you might wait too long and it turns into liquid. All this frustration, all this calculating. It had to stop somewhere!”

Price: 3,150 yen

    Set a coffee cup full of hot water on the table and dip in your spoon before you dig into the ice cream and you'll get the same effect, and save 3,150 yen.

    In America I believe it was the circus master P. T. Barnum who is quoted as saying that there is a sucker born every minute. More than $30(US) for a spoon to eat ice cream!?!?!? That company is definitely going after Mr. Barnum's suckers :-)

    Aluminum has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK , whereas copper is 401 W/mK. Should have done some research.
