Nachos are great. Nachos drowning in guacamole, salsa, or dip, however, are considerably better. The Spoonachos, a utilitarian-shaped nacho chip, will let you maximize the amount of condiments you can put in your mouth without dirtying up your hand.
A concept design from Denis Bostandzic, it’s basically a regular nacho, shaped into the form of a small spoon, complete with a protruding handle where you can conveniently hold it. Hence, the name. And the incredible scooping powers.
Let’s face it: Nachos may be intended as functional finger food. There’s nothing finger-friendly, however, about trying to get as much dip as possible on the thing before you stuff it in your face. Your hands – they’ll be a-dirty before all is said and done.
The Spoonachos does away with all that. Not only can you lift out a generous pile from your salsa, you can hold the whole chip via the built-in handle, so that none of that tasty dip will ever need to be licked off your grubby fingers.
While it’s sad that this is only a concept, the ingenuity gives me hope for the future of humankind. Perhaps, someday, we will all be blessed with a real product spawned from this inspired idea.
