    Re: In addition to soup What things we can use spoon to say

    We don't normally drink anything with a spoon. Drinking means putting liquid direct from a cup or a bowl or a bottle straight into the mouth, without the use of any other implements.

    We drink coffee from a mug.
    We drink wine from a wine glass.
    Babies drink milk from a bottle.
    I drink tea from a china cup.

    Cutlery is used for eating.

    We eat soup with a spoon.
    We eat baked beans on toast with a knife and fork.
    Millions of people eat noodles with chopsticks.
    I eat rice pudding with a spoon.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
