A Thermos can come in handy in multiple situations. Use one on outings and camping trips to tote along coffee or hot chocolate. Or, use a Thermos to pack homemade soup for hot lunches on-the-go, for work or for school. A Thermos will keep the soup warm for hours. If you store the soup in your Thermos properly, you will have a hot treat, filling you when it's time to eat.
