This weekend my kids and I made a couple outings. On Friday we went to the Circleville Pumpkin Festival for some fine festival fun and in order to avoid having them want to fill up on funnel cakes and candy I decided to take snacks for them to munch on. Well, our Laptop Lunchboxes would not be appropriate for walking and eating or even riding and eating (I took along a double seat jogging stroller). So what was I to do? Well, it was the Snack Sack to the rescue! Thanks Libby for me sending me one to sample. :) It really is one darn awesome product!
Basically the Snack Sack is a cloth sack with a stainless steel bowl inside and a draw string closure. It is perfect for storing snacks so that you don’t have to carry a bulky bag or lunchbox or be tempted to put snacks in plastic baggies. It carries about as much as a quart size Ziploc baggie so it is a good size too and yet it collapses down to almost nothing when empty so it is not bulky. The best feature is that is has an attached carabiner so that it can be carried on a belt loop, on your purse, and even a stroller, as I found out. Inside our sack I put some raw nuts and some apple slices and it was enough to satisfy my two youngest for the whole day. My oldest son had his in a wrap-n-mat and it was not nearly as convenient.
Then today we made a morning trip to Columbus (about and hour away) to go to Whole Foods. I knew we would be spending a lot of time there today since I was scouring every isle for all the raw food products I could find…more on why I was doing that later. ;) So we packed up our snack sack again…this time with nuts, grapes and dates. They munched on the way there and they munched in the store…between all the product samples available at the store of course. The sack is in the wash now as the dates were kind of sticky and the bowl was just washed with the evening dishes. I really can’t say enough about how much I LOVE our snack sack…in fact I just ordered more. ;) Make sure to check out the Snack Sack yourself!
