Removing foam blocks from wood

I recently got some free wood from a shipping container that I would like to reclaim and work with. The only problem is, some of the pieces have a lot of foam blocks glued to the wood. I've tried just tearing off the foam blocks, but it just tears the foam and leaves a bunch behind. What would be the best way to remove this foam? Thanks!Name:  2014-11-02_16-35-11_836.jpg

Maybe a paint scraper would help get what's left over off.

If the goof off or similar doesn't do the job, I'd just scrape and sand.
