  • I bought mine at Kroger on clearance. It does keep it cold for about 8-12 hours but my main problem with it is it doesn't really hold a lot. It works better for my son who puts a sandwhich, drink, fruit, and snack in it vs. my husband who normally packs left overs that are in a container.

  • They seem like a good idea, but the ads where the "mom blogger" seems unaware of the existence of cold packs are such a turn-off to me, plus they're too expensive. A cold pack costs a dollar (sometimes less), and I can get an insulated lunch bag for $5. There's just no reason to bother spending so much more for this product.

  • I'd like to know it really does stay that ice cold for up to 10 hrs first. If it lives up to what it says it can do, then yea probably

  • yes, but ONLY If you get the 2 for $19.95. If its one for 19.95 then not worth it to me.

  • Not sure what happened to the other post that I responded to. But I have one of a different brand but same concept. I only paid $4 for mine. I like it but I would not pay $20 or 2 for $20 for it.

  • My first thought was $20 was expensive for something my child is likely to miss place or leave at school for something to rot in it. Then I saw they were BOGO and $10 is not as bad but then there is shipping to consider. So I started the check out process to see how much shipping would be- around $13. Making the total price per bag about $16. So... not really in my budget though the idea is cool. It I saw it at Target for $10 I would consider it but honestly what we have been doing seems to work just fine.

  • where did you find one for that price JeremysMom? I need something that will keep my husband lunch cold for 8 hours and also something for my son when he goes to school and I hate having to pack ice packs because they don't last that long even
