lol. This is the most random thread ever. 😛

I’m usually a fork person, but I think this is more food based than anything. Like, he’s really going to struggle with spaghetti when you make that, but if he picks a soup for his thing and all you have is a fork you’re going to be in trouble.

i prefer forks, DH likes spoons more often than me. he likes scooping rather than poking.

I wonder if there’s some gender base here? My DH is also in the spoon camp for most things. You should add a poll.

I’ll use a spoon unless it REQUIRES a fork (like salad)! But DH prefers forks.

This only really comes up in situations involving desserts (cakes/pies, obvs not ice cream), or stews. In those situations, I’m fork and he’s spoon usually. Unless the pie comes with custard or ice cream, in which case obviously spoon.

I loveeee forks!  Soups are definitely eaten with spoons, but I wouldn’t even mind eating ice cream with a fork.

@Bebealways:  YES!  That’s my eating and cooking tool of choice because it’s much more precise – although I have to say, they don’t do me much good when I’m havign soup.  Stews, I can manage with chopsticks – as long as things aren’t too runny. 😛

@Birdi:  Whenever I think of sporks I think of the ones from Popeyes and I think they’re such a joke because they’re completely useless – the spears are so short you can’t poke anything with them (not to mention the fact that the plastic is paper-thin and bendy)!  The example you put would actually be awesome! 😀

I’m definitely team-fork but he prefers spoons.

@ChicFoodist:  I’ve only used a spork at Taco Bell  and those are a joke for all of the reasons you mentioned. The one I posted is from crate and barrel I’m seriously considering ordering a few of these!

I’m a spoon girl. Unless something needs to be poked i’d rather use a spoon.  For a typical dinner of meat and potatoes I’ll use a fork, of course but if we’re having Chili or fried rice i’m all about the spoon! Salad though, needs a fork.

I prefer spoons.  Unless something needs a fork (like a salad or cutting up a chicken breast or something), I tend to lean towards spoons.
