"Excuse me, but I have a lot of feelings about this $369 'lunch kit' and I must talk about it."

While the rest of Australia stockpiles toilet paper, I have another very pressing concern.

Namely, the phrase ‘elevated lunch experience’ and the fact that someone has created a lunchbox that costs $369.

That person is Leah Naomi, a New Yorker, and her creation is the Inka Lunchbox Kit. It’s essentially two BPA-free, plastic lunch boxes which sit perfectly in a waterproof, vegan leather handbag case. Oh, and it also comes with a gold-finish, stainless steel cutlery set, long and short bag straps, a dinky little saucepot and two silk-cotton napkins. There are also pockets included for your silverware, phone and keys.

While this is all very aesthetic and fancy AF, there’s a pressing issue we can’t ignore. The Inka lunch kit is also – and this is important and will be repeated at regular intervals in this article – $369. For that amount, you could buy lunches for an entire month, buy ingredients to make yourself countless more, or purchase 106-ish rolls of black market toilet paper on eBay (no really, we looked it up).

But let’s not be rash because nothing tastes as good as pure, unadulterated superiority. With a $300+ lunch kit, you’re not a sad sack who eats lunch at their desk, you’re a modern professional who takes their re-heated leftovers ‘al desko’. Their term, not ours.

Really, it’s a power lunch encased in a vegan silicone leather bag and coated in nouveau, niche trendiness.

Look, we would never shame anybody for their choice in lunch transportation and no doubt, people will buy this. Credit to Inka, the brand prides itself on sustainability as they attempt to rid the world of single-use takeout containers and excess plastic. Plus, if there’s anything that’s going to heighten your mediocre lunch break, it’s going to be eating tuna and rice or leftover pasta from this contraption.

A regular lunchbox would do this also but that’s beside the point.

Australian shipping for these lunch kits will set you back a further US$25 or AU$38, but as expected, ‘elevated lunch experiences’ don’t come cheap.

In fact, they’ll cost you exactly $369*.

*Plus shipping.
