My food critics questioned why on earth there was a turkey in their lunchbox when it was still October. And really, when I set out to do this box, there were no thoughts of creating a turkey. But really, what else are you supposed to do with candy corn besides create turkeys? Isn’t that what everyone else does? Anyone?
The Contents – The upper box contains pumpkin bread, hummus, goldfish and Wheat Thin Stix. The lower box contains half a fuji apple, carrot sticks, cantaloupe and half a golden delicious apple.
The Details – This is a lunchtime favorite for Dude. He loves dipping stuff into hummus. I do like this box as it allows me to send apple slices. The smaller square boxes don’t accommodate slices as well and I end up having to cut apples into chunks in order to get quantity.
The Verdict – Oddly, no one complained that the turkey had flown south by lunch. My youngest showed me his turkey and the candy corn had melted into the hummus, ick. I guess my daughter had the right idea when she decimated her turkey this morning by pulling the entire thing apart before she packed her box into her backpack. I guess we won’t be trying this creation again!
