GIFT: What We’re Giving Friends & Family For Christmas

In ancient Greece, an obol was a silver coin worth one-sixth of a drachma.

The obol you’re most likely to come across today is a clever polypropylene dish: Obol, the Never-Soggy Cereal Bowl.

Many of our friends and family start the day with a bowl of cereal. The tendency is to eat it faster than we’d like, because the cereal gets soggier the longer it sits in the milk.

Obol solves the problem by dividing a bowl into two sections: an upper area that holds the dry cereal, and a lower reservoir for milk. Scoop up a spoonful of cereal, then dip the spoon into the milk reservoir. You get a crisp bite of cereal every time.

Colors include blue, cranberry, green, orange, watermelon and white. At $19.99, it’s a great problem solver that you can buy online or in Brookstone stores.

Some NIBBLE staffers swear that they’d never buy an item that can only be used for one thing. So rest assured, Obol is versatile.

Use it for milk and cookies, soup and crackers, chips and salsa or anything you want to keep crispy to the last bite.

Obol is easy-to-hold with a non-slip grip and rim. It’s dishwasher-safe, BPA-free, unbreakable—and made in the USA.

If you’re giving Obol as a gift, package it with a box of your favorite whole-grain cereal. It’s an easy way to start eating healthier in the new year.
