Happy November! Temperatures have definitely dropped around here, coats have come out of closets, and we're once again waking up in the dark! As we adjust to the shorter days and the knowledge that Thanksgiving is just around the corner, we're ever mindful of all that we have to be grateful for: an amazing staff of hardworking, joyful employees, an international "team" of loyal customers, friends, fans, and followers, suppliers who share our commitment to safe, high-quality bento lunchboxes and accessories, and a diverse group of wonderful retailers. Thank you, thank you, thank YOU! May you all have a safe and delicious Thanksgiving holiday!

Enjoy!

DID YOU KNOW?
The largest pumpkin pie ever baked was in 2005, weighing in at 2,020 pounds! Indigenous to the western hemisphere, pumpkins have been grown in North America for five thousand years. They are low in calories, fat, and sodium, high in fiber, and they're good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron. They can be prepared in dozens of ways, both savory and sweet! Don't forget to toast the seeds and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper (and perhaps your favorite herbs) for a deliciously crunchy snack.
