Obol Review & Giveaway- No More Soggy Cereal


I first heard of Obol on a couple of blogs that I frequently read. Have you heard or seen of this bowl before? I thought the design and invention was amazing.

This bowl is for keeping foods from touching the liquids, so you aren’t eating soggy food. This bowl will keep your food crunchy until the very last bite. It uses a scoop and swoop design to help with the sogginess. You scoop your cereal from the top and swoop it down into the milk.
Although you mostly see people eating cereal in it, it can be used for WAY more that that.

You can use it for
*Cookies and Milk
*Chips and Salsa
*Ice Cream and Cake
*Ice Cream and Berries
*Soup and Crackers… and more
My Review
I love the Obol for it’s soggy free design. I HATE soggy cereal. I would always have to rush and eat it. I love reading while I eat, I always have. I wasn’t able to read and eat cereal before the obol. I had to eat it all up before it became gross and got tossed in the trash.

Adam is always telling me that I muti-task too much. I am guilty of this. I watch tv and read at the same time. I read and eat at the same time. I eat and watch tv. I blog and eat. The obol makes life easier while multi tasking. You aren’t having to focus on just ONE thing, because the Obol’s easy to hold handle keeps it from slipping from your hands. While letting you hold it closer to your body.

When the bowl came, I was surprised at how big it was. I didn’t expect it to be bigger than a regular bowl, but it’s twice the size. As you can see in the picture above, her hand doesn’t even wrap half way across the bowl.

Adisyn and Aidan loved the bowl. They thought it was cool. They ended up using it for carrots and ranch, chips and salsa, and cookies and milk. If you’re a mom or an aunt, grandma, or have friends with kid’s then you know how they hate their food touching. My kids aren’t to that age yet, but I will definitely be prepared when it comes time. This bowl is awesome.
Every time Adam grabs a bowl of cereal, he reaches for the obol. He likes how big it is, and fact that he can put his cereal and fruit in one part and milk in the other. He hates eating soggy fruit, but loves fruit in his cereal. I’m glad he liked it as much as the kid’s did. 

Plus it comes in some awesome color choices.
Brookstone.  sells this bowl in some amazing bright colors – red, orange, blue, green, and then the standard white.
