Super Mario Bento Boxes Make Mouths Happy

by Paul Strauss

A uniquely Japanese cultural phenomenon is Bento box lunches where the meal is dressed up with whimsical imagery so kids will be more inclined to eat their food. Check out this great example featuring the likeness of everyone’s favorite little Italian plumber, crafted entirely from edible items.

Super Mario Bento Box

From what I can tell, Mario’s face appears to be made out of some sort of lunch meat, while his bright red hat looks like it might be from radishes or other colorful root veggies. But this clearly obsessed Bento fanatic didn’t stop with Mario.

Luigi and Bowser Bento Boxes

She went on to create edible versions of Luigi, Bowser, Wario, Princess Peach and a bunch of other citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom.

If these don’t get your kids to choke down his or her bologna and Cheese Whiz sandwiches, I don’t know what else would.

Oddly enough, with all the foods used to make these clever creations, I couldn’t find a single mushroom anywhere in the whole bunch.

  13. luigirules says:

    All that stuff looks discusting and besides Mario is Italian and not Japenese so why don’t you just use one of the manga characters to make your disgusting food.

  14. bento fans says:
