I’ve been on the prowl for creative lunch accessories to help me re-learn how to pack. When I saw snackTAXI, I thought they looked really interesting so I emailed them and asked if I could do a product review. They said sure!
snackTAXI sent the cutest package of both a snack-size snackTAXI (Dimensions: 6″ W x 4.5″) and a sandwich-size snackTAXI (Dimensions: 7.5″ W x 6″ H). I love their choice of the mushroom print. Too cute!
They arrived in the mail in December and it felt like a gift. I kept them in a safe spot for a little while because I loved them too much to use them. (You know how you save things you treasure, when you really should use them? I did that a lot as a kid. That’s how I felt.)
The outside is a print, but the inside is a stiffer, more durable fabric that is meant to hold up to a lot. They are machine washable.
I’ve been using them all week (photos to come tomorrow for my weekly lunch wrap-up) in combination with our usual stuff. I love that every time I use one, I am saving a single-use plastic bag from going into a landfill.
My son thinks the snackTAXIs are cool and if he glimpses one, he will insist that he eats a snack out of it. In my son’s lunches I’ve been sending apple and orange slices in the smaller one and then rolling it up to fit in his case. The bigger, sandwich-sized snackTAXI is really quite large. Today I put a bunch of apple chunks in it and a small-to-medium-sized bagel sandwich (photos tomorrow in my lunch wrap-up post) in it. It worked great. If you repeat snacks over a few days, I don’t think there’s a pressing need to wash them.
I liked the snackTAXIs so much that I went to their website and ordered a couple more. They have a massive catalog of prints. It’s really hard to choose because they are all so cute. For my son, I ordered two of the small snackTAXIs with the soccer ball print. Then, I decided to order the exact same set you see above for my sister. I thought about giving her the gnome print (hilarious!), but because I liked the mushroom one so much, I thought she would too. I think the price is affordable (the snack-sack is $6.95 and the sandwich-sack is $8.95) and it makes a nice, unique gift that is under $20 to send to someone far away.
In sum, I liked snackTAXIs because:
- Not made out of plastic
- Saves a plastic bag
- Adorable looking.
- Sized appropriately.
- Wide selection of prints.
- Adult and child friendly
- Nice gift for under $20
- Compatible with waste-free lunches
