I've been intrigued for quite some time now with the idea of reusable sandwich and snack bags, but never took the initiative to buy any and try them out. That got me thinking that they would be a perfect thing to review. So, I present to you...Snack Taxi reusable bags for snacks and sandwiches!
The first thing I noticed when I opened up the package was the cute material they were made out of. I mean, how fun is it to take your sandwiches and snacks in a cute printed bag, rather than a boring old plastic one?! The next thing I noticed was the generous sizing of the bags. There is plenty of room in the sandwich bag for a very large sandwich and plenty of room in the snack bag for any kind of snack I can think of that I normally pack in mine and my boys' lunches.
Before I go any further, I just have to show you the bags I chose. I was sent a set to keep for the review and a set to give away to one of my readers. I couldn't resist the bags with these adorable little hedgehogs all over them. Seriously, they are so stinkin' cute! Just look...
Anyway, one of the things I was concerned about about these bags and part of the reason I have never taken the initiative to get some is I pictured the food falling out of the bags if they got jostled around. I'm not sure if you can tell in this picture below or not, but the pocket part of the material actually folds over quite a ways, so there's really no way anything can fall out. I was also very happy to read that the nylon that lines the bags has been tested to be sure that it is safe and not leeching anything into your food that you or your children shouldn't be eating. Same goes for the cute cotton prints on the outside of the bags.
Wondering about how you care for them? Well, you can throw them in the wash (unscented detergent is recommended) and dryer or simply rinse with water and air dry. Just like any other material, they will hold up better if hand washed and air dried, but I guess that's kind of obvious. So see, easy!
Now, for the main and most important benefit of these reusable snack and sandwich bags...they are REUSABLE! Have you ever really stopped to think about how many plastic bags your family goes through in a week, a month, a year?! It's honestly disgusting when you really think about how much waste something as innocent as your lunches are creating. Now, I'd love to say that I'm great about recycling and things like that, but I have to be honest and say that I am not. I do care though about doing things to make a difference in how much waste my family is creating and these reusable snack and sandwich bags are an easy (and ridiculously cute) way of doing that.

I've been married to my husband, Brian, since June 12, 1999 and we have 3 amazing boys. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home and raise my kids until they were all in school and I am thankful for that everyday. I'm a quirky, emotional, self-proclaimed dork and I've finally gotten to the point in my life where I'm cool with that.
