Review & Giveaway: SnackTaxi

Faith’s Review:
I received my first Snack Taxi as a gift from my great friend, Kelsee, this was just another example of how well she knows me, because it is one of my favorite lunch packing accessories! I liked it so much I purchased a second one. Both of mine are sandwich size bags and I use them to pack everything from chips, to lettuce for my sandwiches, to crackers for my soups. The only things I don’t pack in them, ironically enough, are my sandwiches. I would rather pack sandwiches in my hard plastic sandwich container or in a glass Pyrex container. I do this for several reasons…so that my sandwich stays together and doesn’t fall apart, so that it doesn’t get smashed, and so I have something to eat it off of without dirtying up a plate.

My favorite things about the Snack Taxis are that they wash really well, things don’t spill out of them because of the way they are sewn, and they come in really fun patterns. I hope the winner of these Snack Taxis like them as much as I do!

Lin’s Review:
I had been looking for a cloth bag to carry my sandwiches in and had even thought about making my own. I got onto the Snack Taxi’s because of FM. She brought in her cute Snack Taxi bags and I was smitten. I love the materials that were used to make them and all the cool patterns they come in. The cuteness is not the only thing I like about them. I have a sandwich size bag and a snack bag. I have been able to carry everything from fruit and vegetables to chips. My sandwich bag is versatile, it will carry a full size sandwich as well as a small wrap and it helps keep the soggies away. If you’re the lucky one to win the Snack Taxi you’ll love the way they carry your food and how you can just throw them in the washer to clean them up.

    Love the Snack Taxi, and am super-happy that you are making the most of them. In addition to using my own snack taxis, I use reusable containers (the small jars that bouilion cubes come in, are perfect for salsa!) and buy bulk items and repack in smaller, reusable containers. I have the perk of having a large refrigerator at my office with a few employees (so no chance of any lunch-swiping) so I usually buy ingredients and compile sandwiches/soups on-site, throughout the week, as opposed to literally packing. But I do bring those groceries into the studio in my reusable shopping bags! 🙂

    when Lin and FM met me, I was a buyer of pre-packaged frozen foods. Realizing that I wasn’t that big of a fan of the foods I was eating (I was lazy), I switched to making and packaging my own meals in glass containers. Like Kelsee, I’m making an effort to buy in bulk and repackage (ie applesauce when I’m not eating an apple).

    I’d like to start using cloth napkins so that the only trash I have is my citrus peel (I pack it for home, cut small and put in the garbage disposal to freshen it up).

    I have a lunch box that is broken up into sections. I also keep bamboo flatware in my bag, and have plates and bowls at work so I can microwave or dish up and eat.

    I pack my kids and my own lunches daily and we are packaging free! I use snack taxis for the kids snacks and would love some for my own! I love divided reusable containers – like a bento box but without the lids that my children invariably lose. I also whipped up quick napkins from scrap cloth to use in our lunches. They make great placemats when you need one and help in clean up.

    I LOVE Snack Taxi – after trying many other brands and some Etsy ones. They are the BEST! I gave everyone 2 (snack and sandwich size) for Christmas last year! I especially love how washable they are and their solid construction. YAY! ~ Eco-Napkins By Stacy

    I use recycled containers from yogurt and such, but they’re not sandwich friendly. I’d love a set of these!

    I keep a set of silverware, a bowl and a plate at each of the two places I spend most of my workweek, so I don’t have to remember to haul it with me each day (I bus to work, so weight in the backpack is an issue). I’ve recently moved in with two other people and combining kitchens has presented a huge challenge. I’d love to get replace some of my rigid containers with the reusable bags.

  • Emmy April 8, 2011, 8:11 pm

    I picked up two sets of silverware at Ikea and keep them just for our lunches. I picked out one set and Rob picked out one he liked. I also have a Sigg bottle that I refill with water at my work. It is sad to see how many cups, plastic silverware, paper bags/paper wrappers(fast food), etc… my co-workers go through almost every workday because they eat out.

    I tweeted about this contest too.

    I would love a snack taxi! Right now I use cloth napkins…some bought & some homemade. I also made a few drawstring cloth bags that I lined with nylon. I use them mostly for raw veggies, small rolls & chips. For lunches that need to be heated, I always use pyrex. I carry all of this in my washable lunch bag. A snack taxi would be a welcome addition!!!

    Since my wife and I work together, we pack our lunch in a small cooler using carry-out containers we’ve saved from restaurant visits. We both have stainless-steel water bottles as well, and ceramic coffee mugs instead of using the Styrofoam ones

    And I tweeted it!

    Thanks for all the comments. Its nice to see some of the ideas that everyone has for packing their own lunches. Emmy I also use IKEA silverware. I’m going to be doing a blog post about them too.

    Love your site and I’d love to win.

    These snack taxi bags are really cute. Right now, I just reuse my plastic containers and bags.

  • Rhonda Wilhoite April 12, 2011, 11:44 pm

    I pack “real” silverware instead of using plastic throwaways. I also reuse the same paper sack until it falls apart or carry a “lunchbox”. I use a refillable water bottle and winning a snack taxi would keep me from using plastic wrap or a ziploc bag for my sandwich.
