Frequently asked questions

What are Crunch Spoons made of ?


The primary ingredients are: Wheat flour, coconut oil, olive oil, food-grade coloring, olive oil, baking soda, and last but not least, love!




Why is it so expensive?


Each spoon is made tenderly by hand and we aim to bring the highest quality edible spoons that we can to you. If you love the idea and look forward to being eco-conscious without the hassle of washing up after meals - please help and support! It will go a long way towards a more sustainable future.




How long will your spoons last?


We base our creations on traditional recipes for hard tack. These are biscuits that last for years and used in wartimes and by sailors who are at sea for years. For the best tasting experience, you may keep our spoons chilled in the fridge but are encouraged to consume within 3 weeks upon receiving them. We bake a fresh batch for each order to guarantee freshness!




Only spoons?  Do you bake forks and knife?


We are diligently conducting product testing at the moment. When we have forks and knifes that can successfully cut through pork chops or beef steaks - We will be sure to let you know! Follow us on social media to be kept updated!




What foods do you recommend eating them with?


Our favourites are ice-cream, acai bowls, soft-serve yogurts, and poke bowls (in no particular order!). The soft textures of such foods go well with the biscuit-like texture of our spoons. We are working hard towards ensuring multiple types of foods can be consumed with our spoons and therefore do not recommend using them with tough foods like meat or fried food at this point!




What is PVA packaging?


Poly(vinyl alcohol), also known as PVA, is a water-soluble synthetic polymer. Aside from being odourless and tasteless (think rice paper!), PVA also bears impressive properties such as excellent tensile strength and flexibility, high oxygen and aroma barrier, which makes it ideal for preventing food spoilage.




Is PVA packaging safe for food packaging?


Definitely! PVA is approved safe by the FDA for food packaging, and is considered a GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) ingredient by the FDA.




Is PVA packaging safe for the environment?


We are proud to share that in our efforts to move towards being more sustainable, we have found that PVA is water-soluble, non-toxic, and biodegradable. This means that PVA bags dissolved in water will not choke marine animals, and will not pollute the water or soil. Microorganisms that are naturally present in water and soil are capable of breaking down PVA, which will eventually decompose into reusable nutrients over time.




What is biodegradable packing peanuts?


Biodegradable packing peanuts are made from natural, nontoxic sources, such as wheat and corn or potato starch. The wheat/starch is blended to make a highly dense and stable pellet called resin, which is then melted in an extruder. When the melted resin leaves the extruder, it quickly cools and expands up to 80 times, creating biodegradable packing peanuts.




How can I dispose of my biodegradable packing peanuts?


Good news! Biodegradable packing peanuts can be disposed of by dissolving them in water, particularly warm water. Within 15 minutes, they should be completely dissolved. Alternatively, if you live in a warm area, you could add them to your compost.




Is biodegradable packing peanuts safe for the environment?


A resounding yes! Biodegradable packing peanuts can break down in a matter of days or even hours without leaving behind any toxic substances, so they don’t pose a threat to the environment. If ingested by animals or sea life, they pose no major health threat because they are made using non-toxic materials. When compared to Styrofoam packing peanuts, they require fewer resources to manufacture and the whole process produces fewer emissions. Also, none of the emissions they produce are carcinogenic or harmful – contrary to those produced during the manufacture of Styrofoam peanuts.
