The Spife: To cut and eat kiwifruit
We’ve all heard of sporks (spoon + fork), but how about spifes?
As Alanis Morissette mourns, “Isn’t it ironic? It’s like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife…”
Not a problem anymore, Alanis! The spife (by Zespri) is a spoon + knife. It’s perfect for eating kiwifruit: the knife slices the fruit in half, and the spoon scoops the flesh for eating.
Plus, how cool is the yellow kiwi above, compared to the more common green?
Apparently kiwis pack more nutrients per bite than the 27 most popular fruits. And, a Rutgers University study concluded that the kiwifruit is one of the most nutrient-dense fruits on earth. Kiwis are high in potassium, vitamin C, and fiber, and have low glycemic levels.
So now we really don’t have as many excuses for not eating as much kiwifruit as we should.
Thanks to Cynthia and the Zespri team for the samples.
