minuspoon & minusugar / tea spoon and sugar cubes

minuspoon & minusugar
minuspoon & minusugar

minuspoon is a tea-spoon, which you can use for coffee or tea.
We can easily see, there are many people, who add habitually 4 or 5 spoons of sugar in the cup of coffee or tea. With minuspoon the user can see a same sugar mountain as that with the normal spoon, but with implicit different amount of sugar. Therefore, the user can be visually satisfied, but s/he actually ingests less sugar. minusugar is a cube sugar, which you can take for coffee or tea. It looks just like a usual cube sugar. Therefore, the consumer can be visually satisfied, when putting minusugar in the cup. but he actually ingests less sugar, because minusugar is hollow.
