Lemon is a “Refreshing Lemon Soda With A Lot Of Vitamin C” that is marketed in Japan and is the third highest-selling soft drink there. ©2000 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp.

Back of this display box has images and brief biographies of The Simpsons characters as well as showing different sized containers that C.C.

Original name tag with specialty Simpsons art attached to handle with blank reverse for filling out name, address and phone number. Lunchbox is essentially Mint. This lunchbox was obtained through a contest sponsored by Suntory and this lunchbox was extremely difficult to obtain as contest ran through a limited window of time and approximately 900-1000 lunchboxes were made. Item was never sold in stores. Comes with congratulatory letter in Japanese text. Great promo item. The only other example of this lunchbox we have ever offered sold for $663. (I - $400 to $700)
