I never walked into elementary school without my plastic lunch box and matching thermos. Lunch box contents? A classic PB&J sandwich, potato chips, DunkAroos for dessert and a cold thermos of Juicy Juice. Every August, I’d claim that my plastic lunch box was broken or “not cool” and beg Mom for a new one. Aladdin turned into Pocahontas, Pocahontas turned into Toy Story, and soon I was rockin’ Hello Kitty or Lisa Frank. With back-to-school madness upon us, I have to do a nostalgic post for those that carried indestructible steel lunch boxes and for those of us from the plastic age.

Looking back at those sweet and simple school days, what was your favorite lunch box? And do you still have it?

    the application. The main camera is a 5MP autofocus camera, which for
    the first time on an i – Phone offers an LED flash, so low lighting conditions no longer
    pose an obstacle when taking photos in darker locations.
