Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree, how I hate throwing stuff away!
There have been a million times I have said "I don't want to throw this away! I wish there was a way I could reuse this!"
You know those cute little apple sauce pouches? Well the couponer mom in me has gotten them for free a few times and I have LOVED them! Now... I do normally make my own apple sauce but the free part always gets my attention. The ease of the pouches is amazing. Toss it in the cooler and bring it to soccer practice, and on the go snack for those "MOMMY I AM STARVING" moments, or the "SHHHHH Mummie is on the phone.... here eat this" moment.
But I HATE throwing them away! I even looked at them a few times contemplating how to make them reusable... but the whole issue of not being able to clean them always stopped me.
WELL do not let that stop you any more! I am about to introduce you to our next December Bash Elf.... I give you Squooshi, reusable pouches for squishy food.
Oh YES, Mummies! REUSABLE! Fill it, wash it, re use it! No more throwing away!!!! AHHHHH someone has read my mind!
Squooshi (LOVE the name BTW) are amazing! The pouches are BPA-free, Phthalate-free, PVC-free, and Lead-free.
They provide more flexible and healthy nutrition options: fill with your favorite grain, veggie, legume, dairy, and fruit combos! Home made or store bought.... no matter.... fill it, top it and go! TADA! GENIUS!!!!
They are great for kids (and Mummies) of all ages too. Great for little Nummie Lovers, older Nummie Lovers, graduated Nummie Lovers, Mummies and Daddies! There really is no age limit. If you like squishy food... you are gonna love Squooshi!
As soon as I got my pouches, I cooked up some pears and apples. The worst part was waiting for them all to cool! But once they were cooled off... there was no stopping us!
I opened up the bottom of the pouch and filled it up, then sealed it (like a zip lock baggy.)
Kit Kat was up first.
Here she is showing off her Large Walrus Squooshi (she wanted this one because of the "tooth.") Her lid is off.
Slurp the Squooshi Kit Kat!
Then it was Pooker's turn.
Here she is showing off her Small Lion Squooshi with the lid on.
HAHA Pardon her... she can not help but smile when the camera is aimed at her.
It is one thing for me to test a product... but the girls are a bit tougher than I am. I have to be very honest here and say that they loved their Squooshis. Not only did they work so well, no leaks or blow outs. But the girls kept smiling at their Squooshis. Their only complaint "Mommy, it is empty!"
But then it was time for my test. The cleaning test.
I washed them as soon as they were done with them.. so nothing got dried on or caked on. I simply "un zipped" the bottom and rinsed with hot water. I used a small amount of dish soap and used my hand to wash, then air dried upside down.... and tada... DONE. The "simple" factor was awesome. The fact that I could put them away (and they lay FLAT... no space takers!) and reuse them was amazing. I love that... have I mentioned that already?
My family is now a Squooshi family. Oh yes Mummies.. we are as squooshi as they get. You have heard of "crunchy".... well we are "squoosi!" Two thumbs up from this Mummie. Squooshi is a GREAT product... one that should be in every Mummie home!
Soooooooooooooo.... Do you want one? Oh of course you do! Squooshi is giving ONE assorted 4 pack to one lucky Mummie!
Do what you do best!!!!!
Mummie only puts her seal of approval on special items. Squooshi gets a Mummie Approved stamp! The words and opinions above are mine and mine alone. Aquooshi sent me a set of pouches at no cost to me in exchange for a review.
