Obol Review and GIVEAWAY!


~GIVEAWAY CLOSED ~


Have you ever heard of an Obol?



I never had but recently discovered Obol and was so amazed why didn’t I know about this amazing bowl sooner!! I contacted Obol and they said they would send me one to review and also would do a giveaway! I seriously waited and waited to get the obol I was so excited for it to come! When it did come as silly as it sounds it was like “Christmas day” I was so excited!  This is the PERFECT solution for my husband and daughter who won’t eat cereal because it gets soggy - well Problem solved! Whoever came up with this bowl…..in my mind is a pure genius!



The slanting of the bowl gives it space under the upper section which makes it not only tall but also wide, the bottom of the bowl is designed so that you can hold it with a firm grip while you eat (if you’re not around a table)…this was one of my FAVORITE features..I couldn’t’ t seem to stop holding it from the bottom…I really love this function! It’s perfect for if you want to sit on the couch and watch TV while you’re eating or for me during the summer when I like to eat outside.




The absolute best part of the bowl is that it gives you the ability to walk away from it and then come back to cereal that is not soggy……I’ve had a lot of times where I’m eating breakfast and  all of a sudden my daughter needs me and I have to stop in the middle of eating, or I’ll have somebody call me and I’ll be on the phone for 15 minutes …I love that when I come back my cereal is separated from my milk, there is no more wasting cereal in my house!




This bowl not only can be used for cereal but you can use it for so many other foods, such as soup and crackers, chips and dip yogurt and fruit or even milk and cookies! The price is definitely not bad for what you’re getting; this bowl is larger than a normal sized bowl which I love!



Brookstone.  sells this bowl in some amazing bright colors – red,orange,green,blue and then the standard white.





Overall I loved this bowl for so many reason but here's a few to sum things up!

1) It has such a handy underside for holding the bowl while your sitting
2) Allows you to get distracted while your eating
3)Also lets you eat cereal in a timely manner without without it getting soggy
4) Comes in different colors at Brookstone
5) And it can be used for more than just cereal!
