A Few of My Favorite Things: PackIt Lunch Bags

Today, I had the joy of cooking a double batch of my favorite gluten free dessert… Cookie Dough Balls! For my new followers, you can read all about them and other recipes under the Recipes tab.

What turned out to be a Cookie Dough Extravaganza, simply began as a thank you gift.  Basically once I began cooking, I realized I should probably make some for my lab partners as well.  They have the joy of  listening to me talk about food all the time during lab! So, I made a double batch, which means lots and lots of cookie dough balls!!

But then came the problem of how to package the cookie dough balls?! How do I package a dessert that needs to be refrigerated, while keeping it decorative? The solution was quite simple: PackIt Lunch Bags! You simply place the bag in the freezer overnight (it folds up neatly), take it out in the morning, and the ice in the liner keeps your food cool all day long.

Reasons Why I Love PackIt Lunch Bags

  1. No bulky ice packs! I always have trouble placing ice packs in my lunch bag.  I somehow always manage to place it such that my fruit becomes icy.
  2. No Leaks! Ice packs can leak, PackIt lunch bags don’t!
  3. Compact! You fold the PackIt lunch bag in the freezer, which means that it doesn’t take up much space at all. (See the picture above).
  4. Different Sizes!  For my PackIt gift, I used a mini sized bag.  However, I typically use a normal sized lunch box.  They also sell wine bags, sandwich bags, picnic bags, and more!
  5. Keeps food cool all day long! (PackIt says for up to 10 hours, and I’ve never run into any problems with this claim).
  6. Awesome Designs! While the designs are bold, they’re not overwhelmingly childish.  PackIt lunch boxes are great for kids and adults alike.

That’s all for today, but be on the lookout for a new recipe this weekend.

Happy Cooking!
