At my house, we have very strong feelings about Obol. While DH thinks it is a silly product and he refused to use it, my daughter and I think that it is an awesome idea. After trying their bowls, this is the only way we will eat our cereal in the mornings. Obol is a blow that is separated into 2 compartments. The upper part is where you put the crunchy stuff that you don't want to get soggy. The bottom part is for your liquid (like milk).
In addition to using it for your cereal -- which is the way we like to use ours, you can also use to Obol bowl for soup, ice cream, and so forth.
As I have mentioned before, I love using it for my cereal, Honestly, I can not imagine using a regular bowl for cereal ever again. My husband tried the Obol and he said he did not understand the point of it. He always finishes his cereals within 5 minutes. I, in comparison, do not have that luxury. Being a mother of a preschooler and an infant means that I don't get to get any meal uninterrupted. Either baby G needs a diaper change, wants me to hold him or DD wants me to refill her drink, get her a napkin or what not. I don't think I ever had a non-soggy bowl of cereal until I got Obol bowls to review. Thanks to Obol bowls, I am now able to walk away from my breakfast and still get yummy crunchy cereals even if it takes me 15 minutes to help my kids with something they need.
DD, by the same token, loves her Obol bowl too. She eats so slowly that by the time she is half way done eating, the cereal is completely soggy. With the Obol bowl, she no longer has that problem.
My daughter and I absolutely love our obol bowls. We think you should try it too. To buy your own, please visit Obol website or check out Brookstone.
Many thanks to Obol. The company has generously offered a set of 3 bowls as giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
