12 oz. Cereal-on-the-Go
I own SEVERAL--Best Invention EVER
My daughter and I take these to school (yes this grad student takes her lunch) and people think its absolutely amazing. If you do it right the milk freezes eliminating the leak issue, now I'm not sure if it leaks after its had time to melt because I'm usually eating mine 30 minutes to an hour later with no issues. I even have one where the milk part has been chipped and it still works just fine. I use the lid as a coaster and that keeps me from getting a milk ring (think out of the box people--a napkin works well too) when I eat mine. Its the perfect serving and keeps me from overindulging :-). Now I will say that the top part is NOT leak-proof so after youre done eating, it would be a good idea to put it in a ziplock bag OR rinse and dry it out or you will have milk in your lunch bag.

Finally! Quick breakfasts on the go!
My dilemma has always been tons of cereal at home and no way to get it to work so i end up spending money on breakfast. This cup is exactly what I needed, it takes up little space in my lunch bag and can be filled the night before for a quick grab and go in the morning. I love that it helps me make use of the boxes and boxes of cereal sitting in the pantry at home. Great PRICE, for $5 I'll get my money's worth time and time again. Also for my son I've put mac and cheese on top and grapes in the bottom (keeps them chilled!).
Only issue and it's not something that can't really be avoided; when you remove the milk portion from the bottom and place the cereal portion on your desk, milk leaks from the inside ring at the bottom of the cereal cup. Simple solution is to just have a napkin ready to sit the cup on top of.

Love these for school snacks
I got these about a year ago and absolutely love them. My kiddos were able to use the cups without adult assistance (5 and 8 years old). This was the perfect solution to help them take their breakfast/morning snack to school. In addition to being super cool looking, these kept the kids' milk cold so they could have cereal at morning snack. I saved hundreds of dollars last year between these and the dry snack counterpart. These paid for themselves in days and the kids were always excited to use them. The product has held up well. We used them at least 3 times a week for the entire school year. I fully expect that we'll get another year out of them since there is no visible wear and tear. Highly recommend!

Well thought out & very affordable product!
I bought this container because I can't get up in time to sit and have breakfast & I usually end up eating dry cereal out of a zip lock bag at my desk. I just used it for the first time today and it is exactly what you expect. Please keep in mind that this is a $5 container so it's not going to hold up like stainless steel but it works great. Everything comes as you expect: Easily portable, spoon snaps into place, the bottom of the "bowl" gets milk on it obviously as it is right above the milk but the top serves as a plate to go under the bowl so problem solved! The only thing I can't comment on is whether or not milk spills out if it doesn't stay upright. I kept it upright but to be honest you really shouldn't be keeping that thing lying down. Put it in your cupholder in the car or just hold it in your hand. I'm very happy....I can't believe how affordable it was.
