Wild news, y’all. You can eat breakfast in the Ice Cream Bowl and ice cream in the Breakfast Bowl.Still, while both of these small bowls serve the functions of bowl, they’re different at every angle and I tend to grab them for slightly different purposes. The Breakfast Bowl is my go-to for little kids and pets when they’re eating at the table (or on the floor). Its wide base makes it hard to knock over. But when they’re cruising around the house eating snacks, or (don't @ me) snacking on the couch with their eyes glued to a screen, the Ice Cream bowl is easier to hold and is less slosh-prone.
I’m using kids to paint a picture here, but you can apply the same highly-advanced spatial logic to adult bowl use, too.
