Keep Your Food Fresh: PackIt Cooler Giveaway

July 18, 2012

So when we headed back to Colorado for a few weeks in June, I knew we were going to need to make as few stops as possible on the way. That meant snacks and lunch packed in the car to avoid having to stop for anything other than restroom breaks and gas.

I wasn’t exactly sure how to bring food that we had in the fridge already without it spoiling. But we couldn’t leave it – 2 weeks with yogurt, cheese, and apples was sure to be an unpleasant surprise when we got home.

Then I remembered our PackIt’s.

Seriously – these things are pretty amazing. They have ice packs built into them, so the entire thing stores easily in the freezer (they fold to be compact) and pulled out when they’re ready for use. We loaded all of our perishable stuff in both of them for the road trip.

PackIt’s come in several different sizes and all kinds of different patterns. Great for school lunches, picnics, groceries (goodbye nasty partially dethawed chicken in the back seat), and day trips. I love how durable they are, easy to clean, the inside doesn’t absorb odors, and how they stay firmly closed when full. I also love that they are an eco friendly option to brown bags, plastic bags, and using ice and ice chests.

From their site:

“Keeps food and drinks cold up to 6 hours
Patented eco-gel permanently built into liner
PVC/lead-free, non-toxic, earth-safe, & reusable
Folds compactly in the freezer for storage
Keeps fold cold at USDA-safe temperatures”

One of you is going to win a PackIt Shop Cooler in your choice of pattern! Enter below using Rafflecopter:

I was sent PackIt’s to review, all opinions are my own.

    I’ve seen these on t.v. and really considered them. Currently, we live close to the store, but we’ve often lived more than thirty minutes away. Plus, my daughter’s special diet/feeding disorder often requires dairy and meat to stay cold for a while when we’re out and about and regular blue ice doesn’t cut it.

    I like the black graphic ones best (my husband won’t mind lugging it, too!).
