The spoon is so that once the wax melts down, you can either pour it straight from the tin or spoon it out. It combines the edible massage thing with the hot wax fetish thing. I've never tried it, but we sell them at work and they smell really good. Particularly the vanilla ice cream, and the strawberry seriously smells like a package a fresh strawberries. I hope they taste just as good. If you try it, please write a review!
