Have Your Kids Go Back to School in Style with a Cool Lunch Bag - Review and Giveaway - ends 10/17 US

Time for school, and time to start packing nutritious lunches for our children to take with them.  Instead of using those old brown bags that just use up our planet's resources, use a reusable lunch bag instead!

I wanted to find a great lunch bag that would just fit my daughter's attitude as shoe goes back to the university for her last quarter of physics before she graduates.  The university's food court is stocked full of healthy items to eat along with top chains of pizza, tacos, coffee, etc.  Yet the prices for everything is just out of this world!  She was just taking an energy bar with her to eat, but I found out that she is grabbing something from a vending machine every day because that energy bar was just not enough for the long days that she puts in.  When was the last time you saw something healthy and nutritious in a vending machine?  I really wanted her to pack a healthy and nutritious lunch from home.  She agreed that she did need to eat better, and would pack a lunch.  She did stipulate that I needed to get her something that she thought was stylish, and would keep her food cold until she ate it.  So my search started for a great lunch bag.

My first thought when I was out searching for a lunch bag is that I wanted one that would fit the Lunch Blox system.  I had one from the review that I did, and my daughter really loves that system.  I did have difficulty searching for a lunch bag that was wide enough for it.  So many lunch bags were just an inch too small.  My search ended when I found just the perfect lunch bag from

Cool Lunch Bags has a huge assortment of so many different lunch bags, totes, backpacks, and lunch systems.  With so many lunch bags, I knew I had found the the right site to find the lunch bag the would suit my daughter perfectly.  Our search ended when we found the Cool Tote Lunch Bag "Grande."

The "Grande" Lunch Bag is made by Cool Tote right here in the USA.  This lunch bag is insulated with Thermotek fiber that is made from recycled plastic soda bottles.  It is perfect for a large lunch, frozen packaged meals, and plastic salad containers (yes, the Lunch Blox fits perfect!).  It's great for special diets, too.  A special note to moms with young babies: the "Grande" is a great size for holding baby bottles.  This lunch bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap and a handy inside pocket that fits the included 8 oz. Freezer Pack.  As with all of Cool Lunch Bags products, it is lead free and BPA free.  The size of the "Grande" is 11"x7"x4".

My daughter chose the Wildflower fabric for her "Grande" Lunch Bag.  It has all the room that she needs to put in the Lunch Blox and that extra apple that she is so fond of having daily.  It keeps her lunch cool until she is ready to eat it at about two in the afternoon which is her first break of the day.  I asked her just yesterday how she likes it, and she replied that she wished she had it all those years while she was going to the university.  She is looking forward now to taking it with her to grad school.

Would you like to get one of these "Grande" Lunch Bags for yourself or a special person in your life?  These "Grande" Lunch Bags sell for only $21.97 and they come in such a rich variety of patterns to suit anyone's taste.  If you feel that this bag is too big for your, or for your child, Cool Lunch Bags also stocks a smaller version of this bag which is 8"x6"x4".  This size is perfect for grade school children, and it also comes in a wide variety of fabrics.  The smaller bag sells for $17.97, and also comes with the Freezer Pack, too.
