Credit card spoon and fork
I don't know why I love this credit spoon and fork, but it probably has something to do with my need to to feel prepared for anything, coupled with my fascination with Origami. I bet the person who came up with this idea was caught one too many times with a container of pudding or ice cream with no utensil nearby to eat it with. Rather than suffering the indignity of lapping up food like a dog, you could just pull out a spoon from your wallet. However, the stated premise behind this product has to do with healthy eating and the idea that lack of highly portable personal utensils can lead you to eating stuff like candy bars rather than, say, salad or soup (though one could ask: where do they sell salad and soup without offering forks and spoons?).
I must have a few of these for my car and my purse, as my personal disaster planning involves the eating of lots of gelato but little time to remember to grab a real spoon.
Available for $9 at the Shop at the Cooper Hewitt.
