Add this solid anti-freeze ice cream spade to your collection!
Weird, was our first reaction. The ice cream spade was cool to the touch even in August. When you put it to your ear and shook it, you could hear the anti-freeze compound thumping in the hollow handle. We concluded that it was some kind of powder, not a liquid.
Did it work? Yes, the ice cream slips right off the cool spade. And it's a big, hefty spade that gives you the leverage to go to work on a hard block of ice cream.
This is the kind of anti-freeze ice cream spades that the creamery ice cream shops use.
When do you want an ice cream spade instead of a round scoop? An ice cream spade works best in hard ice cream cutting through easily and scooping plenty. It's easier to press the spade through the hard ice cream with force and leverage. Save the round scoop for softer ice creams and to make round balls for ice cream cones.
