The post quickly caught the attention of social media users, some of whom stated what they knew about the history of the spoon.

One netizen claimed: "Probably it came up with some grocery product. We have 3-4 of them now. Can't recall what, but if I think of a common branded grocery item in the 90s, it could be a tea brand. Will check with my mom tomorrow if she remembers."

"I would read a 1,000 word investigation on this. I can confirm that this is the spoon of choice among British Desis," another user said.

Others also joined in to the fun and shared images of similar spoons that they possessed.
