I love packing lunch for my kids; it’s healthy for them and I know they’ll eat the food in their lunch boxes. However, using all of those plastic baggies day after day was starting to bother me. Not only are they expensive, but they’re bad for the environment. I decided to start searching for an alternative and found Snack Taxis. While there are several different reusable snack and sandwich bags on the market, I found Snack Taxis to be well-made, affordable, and offered in a large variety of colors and styles that my kids think are cool.
Snack Taxis come in two convenient sizes: reusable snack bags, perfect for side items such as veggies, fruit, pretzels, crackers, and more, and reusable sandwich bags that are roomy enough for a large sandwich or bagel. One of the best features I found that’s not present on other bags is the long Velcro strip on each one. Since it’s vertical, you can make the bag bigger or smaller depending on what’s inside. This helps hold the contents in and keeps them fresh, making them ideal for all sorts of foods.
The outsides are made of 100% cotton in all sorts of fun fabric designs, and the insides are lined with polyurethane coated nylon, which are free of lead and phthalates, making them safe for food and the environment. Not only are they durable, but they’re easy to clean. Each day when my kids come home from school, I turn the bags inside out, wipe them clean with a sponge, and let them air dry. Anything from cheese to peanut butter comes right out, and the bags are fresh and ready for the next day. And Snack Taxis are also machine-washable, which is nice to really freshen them up from time to time or to get out set-in spills, like when my son’s milk leaked all over his lunch bag.
While all of these features are great, what my kids really care about is what they look like, and Snack Taxis pass the test. Both the reusable snack and sandwich bags come in a large variety of colors and designs that appeal to boys and girls, kids and adults. From dinosaurs and guitars to flowers and retro dots, the designs are fun and appealing. My kids have gotten compliments from their friends who have asked me where they can get their own. Snack Taxi adds new designs to their collection on the first of every month, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, check back for new designs.
Overall, Snack Taxis are fun, affordable, and great for the environment. I’ve packed everything from sandwiches and fruit to cookies and celery with peanut butter, and always been satisfied with the results. Our family uses them daily, and I will definitely get more in the future.
