Lunch Containers

At Pearl River Emporium in New York I purchased a great stainless steel thermos for food and colorful plastic lunch box. It's a really fun store with a great variety of items.

Below is a fruit storage box I saw there, but didn't purchase. If you click on the photo, you can read the words better. It is quite charming. It says "Sweet Family. A pleasant chit-chat having tasty fruits chears up our daily life. Please help yourself to some fruit full of natural taste."

Although, I suppose if you really think about it, who is the message aimed at? Is it merely supposed to entice people to want to buy it with the hopes of enhancing social interactions? Or is it supposed to be guidance to guests that if they eat fruit with you, they are obligated to pleasant small talk? In any event, it is fun to imagine people sitting around a table, taking turns opening the box, taking a fruit and having conversation.
