Well you can check me down as a convert because I love these little pouches.
We went to the Zoo and shopping the other week around A's birthday so we were out and about all day and I wanted to give the kids a smoothie treat. I love smoothies, kids do too, pretty sure if we could live off blender foods we would!
I went really simple for this one. All frozen fruits I had on hand. If I have too much of something get ripe I cut it up and freeze it for smoothies. So this time we had papaya, banana, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and greek yogurt cubes. Blended it all up with some Apple Juice and it was the prefect level of sweet without adding any sugar. And the color was beautiful!
I wasn't sure how to pour such a runny mixture in without making a mess so I grabbed a funnel and put the bag in a measuring cup to hold. It worked like a charm, no spills, perfect! (Latter I used these bags for applesauce and when you pour from a smaller container or with something a bit thicker its actually really easy to just hold the bag and pour right in.) They offer a Funnel Filling Pitcher in their store that I think would be a great investment for added ease of filling.
I'll admit I had a hard time not over filling these. I thought I put in the perfect amount to not go past the fill line and I had to dump a little out almost every time. But that's just me!
The kids couldn't wait to try these out and lined up, dirty faces and all to get theirs. All thumbs up from the mini's and refilling for a second helping was super easy.
We did have two small issues arise in use. The first isn't really a problem more just something we noticed. The cap is a locking cap so the tabs break after use. It doesn't affect the cap function you just have to break them off. The second would be that one bag had the zipper part pull away at the top so it no longer seals. They said this is rare but they have a 30 Day product gaurantee on any unused, defective or damaged products and you just have to contact them for a refund or replacement.
spoon attachment, and other accessories to both add function and fun to your pouch experience.
