Spoon University- Delhi Chapter, an online food resource for the students by the students, recently organized Spoon Scouts 2.0: A Foodie Treasure Hunt on 31st August, 2016.
Spoon Scouts in its second edition was held on the most renowned and suited street for this competition: Hudson Lane. It saw teams who had qualified the online round braving Delhi rains to gather at the Woodbox cafe for briefing and to get their clues. The clues led them to different cafes where they had to perform activities to qualify to the next level and get the next clue.
Participants were seen running around in caf√©s, and on the road, figuring out clues and performing activities like eating Pizza with a spoon, guessing the flavour of mocktails, ice creams etc. Rohan Goel, one of the participants of the event shared his experience ‚ÄúSpoon Scouts was a super amazing event. We truly enjoyed the day and running from one cafe to another was worth the treasure.‚Äù
The online qualifier involved cracking the clue that lead to The Vintage Avenue, it talked about its good old feel, Freak Oreo Shakes and multiple floors. Whereas the final clue was for For God‚Äôs Cake which focussed on the desserts they offer.
