Tesco Value Plastic Cutlery
Advantages: cheap and can be reused
Disadvantages: They are a little bit flimsy
I always keep plastic spoons in my kitchen for a variety of reasons, the main one being that I cant bear the taste of yoghurt and certain other foods on a metal spoon ( my mum is the same) and as I make yoghurt every few days and eat it at least once a day they are quite an essential. I always buy the cheapest ones I can find and usually Tesco Value fit the bill.
A packet of these cost just 45p for 25 spoons.
They come in a clear plastic pack which like all of the value range is very plain and basic. It has the Tesco Value logo on the front and informs the customer that the pack contains 25 plastic spoons which should be washed before using and are suitable for the dishwasher. Other than repeating this in several languages there is nothing else on the packaging.
The spoons are bigger than a regular teaspoon but not as big as a dessert spoon. They are not very strong and wouldn't dig into anything firm, the neck of the spoon is quite flimsy and would snap. Having said this though they are ideal for soft foods, yoghurt being one of them.
The main reason for plastic spoons / cutlery are really for parties and to save a lot of washing up and while these would be ideal for a party there's no reason why they need to be disposed of after just one use. They wash perfectly well in a bowl of soapy water and according to my mum they are fine in the dishwasher too and I have never had one stained from the food.
I use these because I'm a bit strange about certain foods on metal spoons but they would be ideal for anyone hosting a party or BBQ. I use them a lot in the summer when my niece and nephew come to stay and like to eat in the garden, if the odd spoon gets lost it doesn't really matter. They are also useful for picnics and seaside trips. I know its not very "green" to use plastic but they don't have to be disposable, they wash perfectly well and do last a long while. I have had my pack since before the summer and although a few have been broken and a couple used for digging in the sand I still have most of them.
If you need plastic spoons for any reason I would certainly give Tesco Value ones a try.
