Spoon University- Delhi Chapter organised Spoon Scouts 2.0: A Foodie Treasure Hunt on 31st August, 2016 at Hudson Lane. Spoon Scouts, in its second edition, saw teams who had qualified the online round braving Delhi rains to gather at the Woodbox Café for the briefing and to get their clues. The clues led them to different cafés where they had to perform activities to qualify to the next level and get the next clue. The teams started the hunt at 3.30pm.
The first cafe of the hunt for which the online clue was released was The Vintage Avenue, the clue talked about its good old feel, Freak Oreo Shakes and multiple floors. Whereas the final clue was for For God’s Cake which focussed on the desserts they offer.
Participants were seen running around in cafés, and on the road, figuring out clues and performing activities like eating Pizza with a spoon, guessing the flavour of mocktails, ice creams etc. Vanshika Agggarwal, one of the participants of the event shared her experience “Spoon Scouts was a super amazing event. We truly enjoyed the day and running from one cafe to another was worth the treasure. We are proud 2nd runners up.”
Cafes like Abongchiiz, Bakar, Spezia Bistro, Void, Yolo 21, Jack n Chill, Coalition, The Lab, Mood Swingers, Oakland, Pirates of Campus and Raw Creams were a part of the hunt. Participants included college students from different colleges across Delhi, from IP University, Amity University to Delhi University’s Kirori Mal, Ramjas, IPCW, Hansraj, Miranda, Dyal Singh among others.
All the participants went back home with goodies which included brownies, coupons from various cafes, drinks from Cocofly, special Spoon notepads and more. Four teams made it to the final round, with the Slurp and Scoop bagging the first prize. Other winning teams included Lebensmittel, Foodie Pirates and Burp and Tell.
Niharika Maggo, the Editorial Director and Operations Head of Spoon DU, said “It was a great experience seeing food enthusiasts turn up for the event even after the downpour and actually enjoy it so much. Spoon Scouts is an annual event of ours, the team really worked hard for this and the cafes were also very supportive. We are all set to spread more such foodie happiness across campus.”
