So in a few recent bentos (which you can see on my album if you like) I've included little harvest cookies for desert. One my local supermarkets carries them and they're great, a perfect spicy little cookie and hey they have sugar sprinkles. One is like 33 calories but one is all I need with a glass of milk to feel like I had a treat. The problem is if I include them in my bentos, even if they're not touching anything else, they absorb the moisture and the flavors of the cut veggies. So they are soggy and strangely vegetative by lunchtime and I throw them away. While this maybe good for my waistline it does ruin that treat idea. Does anyone have suggestions for including things that might absorb flavors from the bento's microclimate, or should I just wait until I have a day with no cut veggies? I think carrot sticks and grape tomatoes would likely not add too much moisture to the box.
