None of my spoons fit my mouth very well. My soup spoons are especially lousy.
You can buy custom-fitted arch supports, custom-fitted earbuds, and tailored clothing. Some companies sell custom fitted arch supports online using a do-it-yourself casting kit. Custom spoons could work the same way: the
company could ship you a mouth insert to gauge the size and shape of your mouth.
You could also have your spoon made out of different materials, like ceramic. Japanese soup spoons have a very odd, uncomfortable shape. So even though they don't get hot, they make you sound like you're trying to suck up the last drop of soda from the bottom of your cup at McDonald's.
These might help you

||I loooove nicely designed cutlery. Whenever we're in a department store and the missus wanders over to the designer labels to have a good drool, I go to look at the cutlery. There's nothing like a chunky bit of nicely weighted cutlery that fits your hand and mouth perfectly.
||I really hate those molded plastic soup spoons that
are almost hemispherical, and cut into your upper
lip. What kills me is the thought that someone
designed them. It would be ok if you only ate
soup once every few years, but anything people
will use frequently should be designed to fit them.
||[wags], I hope you don't while away the shopping trip putting cutlery in your mouth in the department store.....
||[+] Bend the handle to an amount I decide. Infant cutlery has helpful bends which mean you have to twist the write less - but you can't find them for adults anywhere.
||//they make you sound like you're trying to suck up the last drop of soda from the bottom of your cup at McDonald's.// It's considered good form in Japan to slurp loudly. The food whips around your taste buds and is more thoroughly enjoyed.
||I'll take size 3, extra wide, half-dozen please.
