When I am eating icecream it is usually right out of the icebox and is usually out of frustration so I usually don't have time to wait for it to melt. I usually stick th e spoon in the hard ice cream and then do the equivalent of what you would do with a shovel by putting your shoe on the edge, by jamming the end of the spoon handle into the heel of my hand and the gritting my teeth and pushing. This could be avoided with a spoon stock, like the stock of a gun that could be attached to the spoon handle. It could even be really big for super hard icecream so you could get your whole body into it.

Enhanced heat-conductive scoops http://www.crateand...cream-scoop/s559105
like these work great. They're a bit big for stuffing you mouth, and as AFAIK no table spoon-sized ones are to be had, I think such an invention would be a useful original. Would also work as an enhanced coffee/tea/soup cooler. [CraigD, Oct 06 2012]

       Heated ice cream scoops exist to make this easier.

       Re-designing the ice cream spoon before addressing the source of frustration that led to an ice cream binge in the first place; Shirley, this is the essence of Halfbaking.

       The concept of actually keeping ice cream in the icebox as opposed to eating it all on arrival is intriguing.

       The word "microwave" springs to mind.

       Yes, but they can treat that with medication now.

       you'll need a titanium or very high quality steel spoon

       Not that difficult to acquire. I have six titanium camp utensils that have proven to be quite destruction-resistant. The set cost about $20.

       They make a spoon which looks like a garden spade if that helps.   

       I've always been fine with an ice cream scoop.

       Try a gasket punch. I'd suggest about a 5/8 inch.

       You could market this as the Jesus H Chrice?   

       Or not.

       Obligatory WIFRT: I thought this was going to be about a huge outdoor concert with bands that feature spoonsters!   

       Actually, this might be Baked (see link).
