About

What is FIND-A-SCOOP?

Hi! I'm Alyse. ​ I created FIND-A-SCOOP™ to help deal with a common, often overlooked problem: the small scoops and spoons that get lost in jars of powder, whether it's protein, baby formula or nutritional supplements.

​Our BPA-free, dishwasher safe product digs scoops out of jars and tubs while sifting out the powder. Not only does this keep the powder where it belongs, but the container remains contact-free, ensuring that the germs on your hands don't contaminate the product inside. The tool has been specifically designed to handle large tubs, and comfortably reaches the bottom of even 5 lb. containers. ​ ​Our hands are a breeding ground for germs, especially after working out and handling exercise equipment. Studies have proven that certain powder containers can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses on human hands. Health and Fitness Industry, Vegans, Moms or Dads and Health Care Professionals. ​ Before Find-A-Scoop™, consumers had no choice but to accept that their expensive powder containers would soon become unsanitary. But thanks to the magic of this purpose-built tool, we can make sure that you don't contaminate what you consume.

Find-A-Scoop is a BPA-Free, dishwasher safe product with three essential features: 

· The no-slip finger grip 

· A powder-draining dipper 

· An extended reach stem

Find-A-Scoop comes in a variety of colors and two sizes (Full & Mini) for all your sifting needs. Our FIND-A-SCOOP Mini is half the size of the Full Size. (measurements below)

The Evolution of FIND-A-SCOOP

How did we come up with the design for FIND-A-SCOOP?

It all started with a sketch of my idea. Don't mind my horrible chicken scratch. An entrepreneur's gotta do what an entrepreneur's gotta do.
