I was creating a Hello Kitty squidoo lens for the Kawaii Bento Club when I suddenly realized that I do not have any Hello Kitty bento boxes! I was shocked as I have quite a stash of cute bento gear and miscellaneous Hello Kitty stuff. I guess in my mind I merged the two collections and assumed that at least one of the boxes represented our “Queen of Kawaii”… Hello Kitty! But I was wrong and very dissapointed in myself.
“Luckily” for me there’s a Sanrio store on the way home from work. The logistics of this, as you can imagine, is very dangerous to a bento addict such as myself.
Case and point! Just look as these photos.
I know…huh?! There are no words!
But anyway, I managed to not buy one of each. But it took awhile to decide and the suspicious look in the shop-keeper’s eye hastened my choice! Doesn’t she know that you can’t rush these moments? The pink sandwich box was irresistible so how could I not take it home? Hellooo? (no pun intedned)
It is perfect to pack as a cute snack and that’s just what I did for my squid lens.
Here’s an overhead shot of the contents.
Isn’t it cute! And very simple to pack… it contains corn pudding, sun-dried olives, tomatoes, broccoli, strawberries, snap peas, yellow carrots, watermelon radish, vegan tofurkey sausage, mozzarello cheese and enokimushrooms. “Squee”!
