2013 PackIt Personal Cooler Review and Giveaway

A few weeks back we were asked to review the 2013 PackIt Personal Cooler lunch box and host a giveaway.  As many of you know this will be our first giveaway!  I have reviewed a few products before but have not hosted a giveaway…so I am pretty excited, especially since I have fallen in love with this product! First, let me start with why I really wanted to review this product.  I had seen a few commercials for the PackIt lunch box and how it keeps food cold for up to 10 hours.  This was very appealing to me because I often take my lunch to school and in another year (yes, another year) my kids will be taking their lunch to school as well.  It is hard to believe they will be going to school and need lunch boxes!  I know how quickly food can spoil sitting in a lunchbox and food is not cheap.  So this concept caught my eye when I saw the commercial.  So when the request came in for us to review this product I was beyond excited! I know sometimes you see things on tv and then when you purchase them they do not live up to your expectations, The PackIt Personal Cooler however exceeded mine!  They have so many fun and colorful designs and we loved the one we were sent.   When it is folded it is no bigger than an ice pack so you do not need much room in the freezer for it.  You simply place it in the freezer for around 12 hours and it is ready to use.

We approve!

(Elizabeth is holding it all folded up.  It was just taken out of the freezer.) I took it out to pack my lunch in the morning and it was ice cold inside.  I put in a drink, frozen gluten free bread, cheese, turkey, veggie chips, and applesauce.  When I went to eat my lunch 5 hours later my lunch was still in perfect condition.  The bread was even still frozen in section.  My drink was refreshingly cold and my applesauce was the perfect temperature.  My cheese was still a solid and not squishy!  I know many times in my old lunch bag my cheese would get a little warm and a little gooey.   I even stuck my hand in and it felt like I was reaching in to a freezer.  Lets just say everyone at my lunch table was pretty impressed.  LOL  I was the kid with cool lunch box! (Sorry could not help myself.)

Daddy I want one!

My drink leaked in my bag.  It was red Crystal Light…so inadvertently the perfect test to see how easily I could clean it out.  Let me just say I was so happy, I was able to just wipe it clean!!!!   I did not finish my applesauce at lunch and took it home.  By the time I got home it had been 10 hours and it was still cold inside. I immediately text Randy and said we need to get four more so the kids can have them when they go to school.  I am not giving up mine now. ;)



So with all that said and a couple of pictures of my kiddos I am so excited that we are able to host a giveaway for one of you our readers to win this absolutely fabulous product.  You will the the envy of the lunch table with the PackIt! ;) Good Luck!
