If you're not familiar with the brand Blue Q, you need to get acquainted — I've written before about how much I love their socks, and their shopping, cosmetics, and lunch bags are no different. I've had this Hangry lunch bag for quite a while now, and it's almost absurd how much joy it brings me whenever I use it — and not just because it's filled with food.
Although I work in a good place when it comes to having a wide variety of lunch options, choosing what to get and taking the time to actually get it is taxing both for my patience and my bank account — sometimes I'd keep putting off figuring out what to eat until I was already hungry and grouchy. Not a good combo. Besides, bringing food from home was the *easiest* thing to forget every morning when running out the door, already five minutes late. But with this bag, I haven't forgotten it once! I just hang the bag on my doorknob, and the bright orange screams, "WAIT, GET YOUR LUNCH!" before I can possibly head out the door.
It fits all the various lunches I've ever dreamed of — curry chicken salad lettuce wraps, pesto pasta salad, containers of fresh fruit, cookies, potato chips, yogurts — with plenty of room to spare. Constructed from 95% post-consumer material (aka recycled woven polypropylene), it's v durable and has shown no signs of wear, whether I've crammed it full of food, shoved it into an overstuffed backpack, or torn into it when the hanger struck. And it just makes me HAPPY, from the color to the weird little wolf guy who is SO clearly ready to eat. I feel seen by him. And I'm not alone; I've even been stopped in the middle of a subway station because someone loved this bag so much and wanted to get a closer look.
The best part? It also serves as a warning to any office lunch thieves who might be looking for an extra snack: 'The owner of this lunch is hangry. If you take this girl's bites, she might bite back." —Maitland Quitmeyer
