Go Picnic Review and Giveaway

Company Facts 
GoPicnic has revolutionized the concept of boxed meals, offering nutritionally balanced, shelf-stable, ready-to-eat boxed lunches and meal boxes that require no refrigeration, heating, or preparation. No bigger than a hardcover novel, GoPicnic boxed meals are easy to transport in a laptop bag, backpack, or handbag, and are meant to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.

Each GoPicnic meal box is packed with palate-pleasing foods from premium brands. Plus, all of GoPicnic’s delicious foods are made with clean ingredients, which means they contain no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), no added monosodium glutamate (MSG), and no artificial flavors or colors. GoPicnic’s high-quality ingredients are clearly labeled on the packaging of each box lunch, so even people with special diets, including all-natural, gluten-free, kosher, vegetarian, and vegan, can enjoy GoPicnic boxed lunches when they’re on the go. 

GoPicnic History 
Founder and CEO Julia Stamberger first launched GoPicnic in November 2006, serving up a shelf-stable meal box solution to the costly fresh food service available for purchase onboard major U.S. airlines. Stamberger’s ready-to-eat box lunch concept enabled airlines to offer quality, in-flight food options that reduced waste and required zero prep time. The airlines were also able to increase efficiency and improve customer satisfaction with GoPicnic boxed meals.

The success of the ready-to-eat boxed lunches and meals with onboard airline clients led the way for GoPicnic’s growth into new markets. In addition to airlines, GoPicnic has created meal boxes for hotels, tourism, corporate events, and college and camp food service programs. GoPicnic’s Care Packages debuted in May 2010, which allowed consumers to send flavorful food boxes to faraway family and friends. In January 2011, GoPicnic introduced eight new ready-to-eat boxed lunches for the retail market, which are available at nationwide grocery, specialty, and mass merchandise stores, as well as online.

My Review:
Thank you Go Picnic for sending me two boxes to review.  All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.  One lucky winner will win two Go Picnic boxes by entering below.  

The first thing I did was send one with my daughter to school for her lunch.  I was pleased to find that she enjoyed her applesauce, fruit snacks, pb n crackers.  She did bring home the fish crackers because she said they were spicy.   I tried them an loved them but I will admit they have so much more flavor then other brands so it probably seemed hot or spicy to her.  I ate every last one.  
The next day I took the other box to my job for my lunch break.  When I opened it up I was excited to see my cookie was from Lucy's, a very familiar brand.  I thought the nut package was a bit small but I understand that if it was larger the calorie intake for the meal would increase significantly  

While we were at Target my daughter spotted the Go Picnic meals and was absolutely excited to purchase them.  I was excited because it means I save time from packing her lunch.  The price at my local Target was very reasonable!  

It was nice to sample the gluten free box and the all natural box.  It is always important to check the labels on the box to ensure you get exactly want you need or want.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
