Wizards Invent Spoon That Eliminates Hard to Scoop Ice Cream

One of the most frustrating things in life has to be when you demand ice cream right now at this very second but, when it's taken out of the freezer, it's simply too frozen to enjoy. How dare those pesky laws of thermodynamics ruin instant gratification party 2K14. You are then faced with two choices: get down and dirty in that tub, chipping away at it until you have something resembling a scoop, or do the unthinkable and put it on the counter and wait. Now there's a third option and it may be the best one of all. A magic spoon!

A company called 15% has just unveiled a line of ice cream spoons that are designed to simplify the scooping process. They are made from aluminum which, if you didn't know, is a mighty fine conductor of heat. The end result? Your body heat ends up raising the temperature of the spoon to a nice even "melt the dang ice cream so I can eat it all" degrees. It's a simple concept but the science is sound.

Now the downside. These ice cream spoons clock in at around $30, which is around the price of six pints of high grade ice cream. Oh well. You could always just wrap your regular spoons in aluminum foil and hope for the best.
