My Melody & Monbento Review

I am happy to receive a single Monbento box, egg molds and sauce cups, all generously sponsored by Monbento. I will review the sauce cups today and will review the other two items tomorrow.

The sauce cups comes in pairs and in a variety of colours. The ones I received are pink/fushia, which goes perfectly well with both our single Monbento and Monbento original boxes.

The opening by screw cap with silicone seal works very well. The cups are also dishwasher safe and BPA free. These cups are great for salad dressing, ketchup, mayo, syrup, etc.

I made My Melody for the bentos and packed the boxes with broccoli, grilled chicken and strawberries. I filled the sauce cups with some ketchup. The sauce cups fits great in the box and looks beautiful. :)

My melody is rice, part of it coloured with sakura denbu and rolled in pink flakes. I've no idea what the pink flakes are called, they are like bonito flakes and made from fish.

I also made some My Melody sandwiches for my boys' snacks. These are jam sandwiches, packed with grapes.

My Melody's bow is made by cutting out two hearts and a circle. :)
