Packit lunch and snack bags leave ice packs in the cold

The latest freezable lunch and snack bags from Packit are like mini-fridges to go, no ice packs needed. Filled with a special cooling gel, these bags can keep food fresh and cool for hours, and they are reusable, BPA-free, non-toxic, and food safe. They come in a wide range of shapes and sizes with adorable patterns sophisticated enough for grown-ups, yet colorful and playful for kids. The new Freezable Snack Bag has a tapered design that makes it ultra portable to fit neatly into a tote, backpack, gym bag, etc. It’s just the right size for a yogurt or a container of gazpacho plus a handful of raw veggies or fruit. The Freezable Snack Box is shaped like a traditional Dopp kit, and it’s roomy enough to chill snacks or lunch items plus a small bottled drink. The buckle handle lets you clip it onto carryalls, strollers, bicycles, etc. Bags collapse flat for compact storage in the freezer and are ready to reuse in hours. Prices start at $12.99.
