Most of us would have seen and used one of these before.

From what I have been able to gather, it is intended to function like a small bowl. You sip the liquid (or semi liquid) contents from the side of the “spoon”. But you don’t put the whole thing in your mouth – because you bleeding well can’t!

Even if you do manage to get a smaller one into your mouth, the weird rhomboid box-like cavity is decidedly not tongue-friendly.

Why you would want a small bowl with a handle to sip from, when you already have perfectly serviceable small bowls on the table, is a mystery. Especially at the expense of a real and actually functional spoon.

Would this be yet another “bit it’s traditional” excuse to persist with something crappy?
