Only 50,000 of these cutlery sets were distributed to an equally limited selection of McDonald’s restaurants in China. And the most surprising thing is thatElon Musk he himself was not aware of this project.

A reproduction of the Cybertruck design in a spoon

This McDonald’s spoon project developed by Tesla was apparently not known outside the Chinese branch of the manufacturer. It was a Tesla investor, Sawyer Merritt, who recently made the discovery, as reported The Verge. These spoons really reproduce the design of the Cybertruck, with its angular side you know silver finish.

This model of spoon is delivered in some McDonald’s with a storage tube on which is printed « powered by Tesla » (in French : “powered by Tesla”).

Tesla is used to unusual derivative products

Each of these Tesla spoons would cost 30 yuan, or around 3.80 euros. They were specifically designed for eating a McFlurry. Moreover, McDonald’s China has also developed McFlurry packaging based on the design of the Cybertruck. Some Internet users thought it was a prank when they saw images of this spoon and this packaging on social networks.

Elon Musk himself tweeted that this was false information. However, this product does not seem to be unreal. Tesla China is used to these original derivative products. Tesla also sells several eccentric items on its American website. It is, for example, possible to obtain an iron to mark the manufacturer’s logo. A bottle of «Teslaquila» had even been put on sale at more than 200 euros at one point.
