Willy Wonka Bento

September the 13th is Roald Dahl's birthday. In honor of the beloved author's birthday I'm joining my fellow Bento Bloggers & Friends to celebrate this occasion with a Roald Dahl Day blog hop. Be sure to click on the button at the end of this post and check out the next Roald Dahl bento. :)

Last year, we had a similar blog hop too and I made James and the Giant Peach, click HERE to check out my creations then. This year, I decided to make Willy Wonka, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favourite storybook when I was a child. It's also the first Roald Dahl book I bought for IT. He's very familiar with this book, as it has also been used as a textbook in his English class at school when he was in Primary 2. LT just started reading this book yesterday, thanks to this bento.

Willy Wonka was made from rice, coloured with a little ketchup. Other ingredients used to make him were aburaage, purple cabbage, cheese and nori. Wonka bar was made using rice, nori, cheese and red capsicum.

Side dishes for this bento were lemon chicken and sesame broccoli. I've also added in gobstopper and sour gummies. This has got to be one of my boys' favourite bento, thanks to the candies, lol. This lunch is packed in an EasyLunchboxes, so happy to finally own a set. :)

Now, are you ready for more Roald Dahl lunches? Just click on the picture above, hop over to Eats Amazing, and check out Grace's awesome bento. :)
