Fair warning: this squirrel onigiri bento box is nearly too cute to handle. It’s proof that fall can be all kinds of cute. It’s hard evidence that squirrels are some of the cutest creatures on the planet, thanks to:

  • Bushy tails
  • Chubby cheeks
  • Cute little paws holding cute little nuts

If you didn’t just squeal at that last point, then are you okay? The little nut in the little paws is probably my favorite part of this whole bento, and what I believe elevates it from being dangerously cute to lethally cute. Seriously, the cuteness of squirrels is way too underrated. This bento box is here to fix that problem.

Yes, I went there. I’m not sure if the rice ball gods will forgive me, but I have gone ahead and paired rice with pumpkin spice, and it’s truly everything you’d expect of a pumpkin spice creation – warm, fulfilling, and inexplicably addicting. Warning in advance though: these are not your typical onigiri. They teeter flirtatiously between savory and sweet. But I have faith that you can all find it in your heart to welcome these little harbingers of delectable fall bliss into your life.

Pokemon has always been a huge part of my life, ever since it first aired in Canada on YTV in 1998. I would devotedly watch every Saturday morning, never missing an episode, and would fill the Pokemon void during the week by collecting, organizing, and trading my precious Pokemon cards, of which I had somewhere around 850 (the fact that I still remember that number goes to tell you how seriously I took my collecting). I also had a not so low-key crush on Ash. My family never lets me forget that one.

Seals are definitely one of my all-time fave aquatic animals. Every time I see them at the zoo or aquarium, I have to be physically dragged away from the exhibit, lest I decide to camp out for the night. If you show me a picture of a baby seal, I will literally scream in agony over the sheer unbearable cuteness. If it’s a video, I’ll enter cardiac arrest. Because baby seals are precious, innocent little puffs of heaven on earth. Their very existence demands adoration.

Step aside sandwiches, because tuna salad has a new BFF: onigiri. Seriously guys, rice + tuna salad is like a match made in heaven. The rice acts as the perfect vessel for sealing in all that creamy tuna goodness (hello mess-free lunch!), and the very inner layer of rice becomes decadently moist and creamy from the mayo – much better than eating soggy white bread, in my opinion.
