My family travels a lot these days, thanks to my work as a travel writer. And part of traveling with a family is often traveling with food that we need to keep cool. However, I am not good at spatial challenges, so find packing a cooler full of food and ice packs to be very frustrating as I try to fit everything in and keep it all cool. Also, I was getting very frustrated by the constant efforts of the ice packs to escape from my home freezer. I can't tell you how many times they've crashed out of the freezer and on to my foot or the floor.
But there's a great new product that has solved this issue for me. It's called Icential Coolwraps and it is brilliant. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:
The solution -- Icential® Coolwraps, a new all-in-one cooling system that is perfect for today’s busy families, making it easy and convenient to live life on-the-go and at home.Coolwraps is the first multi-purpose cooling system that replaces old-fashioned cooling products taking up valuable freezer space. Designed with versatility in mind, it can be used for anything – from keeping food and beverages cool and fresh, to soothing a sports injury or providing relief from the heat.
- Use one to wrap a beverage, a glass, a pint of milk or ice cream, wrap snacks, a wine glass, even an elbow or ankle.
- Use two wraps connected together to wrap a gallon of milk, a six pack, a pitcher, or to line a shopping bag, a small cooler, even a backpack.
- Use 3 or 4 connected horizontally or vertically to create a cooling mat for platters, bowls & casserole dishes, to lay on when your back is sore, to cover camping items with a sheet of cold...the possibilities are endless.
- Cool+ gel is a technologically advanced gel that stays cold for hours. The Cool+ gel is self-insulating, uses food-grade materials, and is non-toxic. Cool+ gel lasts 4 times longer than any other gel and helps our earth save water and energy.
There are so many great things that I love about the Coolwraps. I love that they don't take up much space in my freezer and fold up nicely for storage. I also love how easy they are to use. We traveled this past weekend and it was simple to use wrap the Coolwraps around the products I wanted to keep cool, as well as to line the insides of the cooler for extra cooling. The wraps definitely did stay cold for a long time, keeping my food safely cooled off, even after several hours in the car on a 70 degree day.
I have good news! One lucky reader will win a 2-pack of Icential Coolwraps in either blue or pink. Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
