What used to define a good lunchbox as a kid? Some of the rules that made a good lunchbox was having a good picture of an awesome superhero on it. If you came in with a Wolverine or Captain America lunchbox you were doing something right. If you sat down at lunch with a Green Lantern lunchbox you were probably eating with people that enjoyed their own boogers for lunch too. If you didn’t go with a superhero, there was the option of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or He-Man. However, if you did rock the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lunchbox we hope that you had one of the cool ones like Raphael or Leonardo (don’t even show up with Donatello). One of the things we quickly learned about the lunchboxes of the 80’s and 90’s were that they came big and bulky. You could never leave it on the bus because they were so friggin’ huge that it deserved it’s own seat. The upside was that you could pack 25 pounds of food but the downside was it took up all of the real estate in your backpack.
We managed to find a grown up lunchbox (that doesn’t have a superhero on it unfortunately) that seals your food tight and doesn’t take up too much room. The Compleat FoodSkin actually wraps tightly around your food but when it isn’t in use, it takes up next to zero room. The Compleat lunchbox comes in three different colors which allows you to pick the perfect color that matches your eye color. The other nice thing about this lunchbox is that if you have food like a sandwich that needs to be held in place, Compleat should do that without destroying your food. We weren’t able to get a hands on with this product and would have a small concern that Compleat could actually smash the food. Click here for image source and where to purchase.
