When it comes cereal, my preferences were ingrained at a very young age. Mom was clever – she never kept exceptionally sugary cereals in the house for my brother and I to tweak out on. (You know the ones: Frosted Flakes, Cap’n Crunch, Cocoa Puffs.) Instead, I gravitated towards moderately healthier choices, like Kix, Cheerios, and Frosted Mini Wheats. But no matter which cereal started my day, I had to gobble it down quickly or face the inevitable awful that was soggy cereal.
Now I know, some people like their cereal soggy. And some people are mental. (I kid, I kid … mostly.) Still, I’m a proud member of the Crunchy Cereal Coalition, so when I spied this ingenious cereal bowl that keeps cereal crunchy, my inner 7 year old squeed and my outer 30 year old said “Bitchin!”
The Obol cereal bowl has a unique Swoop n’ Scoop design that keeps your cereal and milk seperate until you decide to take your next bite. Then you just “swoop” a spoonful of cereal down from the holding area into the milk below, then “scoop” the perfect milky-crunchy bite into your mouth. Mmmmm, cereal as it was meant to be enjoyed. Genius!
Better still, the Obol comes with a textured grip that helps you keep a handle on your cereal without fear of spillage. Its innovative design is also perfect for combining soup and crackers, cookies and milk (Oreo lovers unite!), chips and dip, and more. [via Incredible Things]
