Any guy who can work with a bunch of women can easily pack his sandwich in a pink zebra bag and deserves the spotlight, right?! Today we welcome SD, who had been on the hunt for a reusable sandwich bag that would accommodate wide bread. He’s reviewing a ReSnackIt bag.
Hello! I’m SD, and I’m a librarian in Northern Kentucky. For years I have fought with bulky sandwich containers and have burned through who knows how many wasteful plastic baggies. I finally came to a point where I needed to find an alternative. I was tired of paying for disposable bags that I threw away just after one use and plastic containers were bulky and eventually stained or retained odors.
After just one month of lunches using the ReSnackIt sandwich bag, I believe I have found a product worthy of my lunch box! I was a bit skeptical at first, but I think this was because it was just something different than I was used to, but I was quickly won over and here’s why:
* Food stays fresh. One my biggest complaints with other lunch containers is that bread always gets dry and veggies get soggy after only a few hours in the fridge. I figured this was an unavoidable problem, but the ResnackIt sandwich bag proved me wrong. My bread and sandwich thins always came out pretty much how I put them in. Carrots stayed crunchy and my apple slices were nice and crispy with just a little bit of browning. The big test for me were my whole grain crackers that I pack on just about a daily basis. They usually turn soggy, but I deal with it because they are so good. To my surprise, they stayed dry in the ReSnackIt bag. I’m not sure how this works, but it does.
* Easy to clean. No one wants to fool with something every day if it’s going to be a pain to clean, and that’s not the case here. If you’re just using the bag for sandwiches, you could probably get away with shaking the crumbs out at the end of the day. However, packing fruits and veggies will require a hand wash. The ReSnackIt website claims that you can put the bags in the dishwasher or even your washer and dryer. Unless you had a really big mess or were just that pressed for time, I don’t think you would really need these options, since food just wipes right off the nylon lining, but it’s nice to know that you can if you wanted to. I will say, though, that when hand washing, it takes a lot of rinsing to get all of the dish soap off of the inner lining, but when fully rinsed, there was no lingering detergent smell or food smell for that matter.
* Other features. There are a couple of other features that make this an ideal sandwich container. First off, I like wide bread, and the ReSnackIt bag can accommodate a pretty big sandwich. Plus, the Velcro seal is long enough so if you aren’t filling the bag completely, you can fold the top over and get a good seal. Second, every bag has a ton of colors and designs to choose from, so you are bound to find something that fits your personality.
