There I was in the kitchen. A pint of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia on the counter, my sugar cone poised and ready to be filled, and my trusty OXO quick release ice cream scoop in hand.

There was an ice cream cone to be had! I was happy as a clam.

And then … disaster struck. Check out what happened as soon as I tried scooping:

The ice cream scoop snapped in half!

I guess I’ve worked it too hard over the past 5 years. It finally said, Enough is enough, woman – too much ice cream for you anyway!

RIP my little scoop.

I shall have to eat lop-sided uneven scoops of ice cream until I get a replacement. So very sad.
