A flexible lid snaps over the whole container. This prevents leaking between compartments and lets you carry the lunchbox upright or slip it into a backpack. The Goodbyn FAQs say that thick sauces like dips and yogurt are fine, but the lid isn't leak-proof enough for soups.
For kids, this is a manageable lunchbox that can easily go from backpack to locker to lunch table. Each Goodbyn also comes with a set of dishwasher-safe stickers for decorating and personalizing. And who doesn't love stickers?
For us adults, I'm thinking of that packed office fridge. Not only would it be easy to slip this slim lunchbox in between the other bags and take-out containers, but food would be kept relatively protected from the strange odors and spills that seem inevitable in a communal fridge. I also wonder if lunch thieves might be deterred by the distinctive design and the fact that you can't just reach in to grab something quickly.
I'm sold. What about you?
