Cutting the Cost of Squeezable Pouch Snacks

The Dollar Stretcher was sent 2 Squeasy Snackers to facilitate this review. The Dollar Stretcher received no compensation for this review. The opinions in this article are those of the author.
In school lunchboxes, as afternoon snacks, even as a treat for breakfast - my kids LOVE squeezable pouch snacks. From yogurts, to smoothies, to mashed-up fruits, these kind of packable snacks are great for on the go, great for school snacks, or perfect as a less-mess treat while watching TV on the couch. But buying those pouch snacks individually can really add up... plus you can't reuse any of the pouch snack containers.
Knowing how much my kids like their pouch snacks, I went in search of a possible reusable pouch container. Did they exist? I wanted something I could refill with yogurt or applesauce, and something my kids would like using too. I reached out to Squeasy Gear, and they agreed to let me and another mom here at TDS review one their Squeasy Snackers. Did they work? Here's our opinion:
A Little About Squeasy Gear
Squeasy Gear was created by parents who, like me, wanted a reusable snack pouch alternative. Between the cost and the waste generated, snack pouches were putting big dents in both household trashcan waste space and the family budget. They designed the Squeasy Snacker to be reusable and perfect for many different kinds of great pouch-friendly snacks. It's made of BPA-free material, and it can go right in the dishwasher after use. Plus, it's very easy to clean, easy to fill, and a cinch to take apart and put back together. And it comes with a no-spill insert designed for keeping more liquid-based foods from spilling.
What We Liked About Squeasy Snackers
As soon as I received the Squeasy Gear, I tucked it away to bring home to my kids, and I passed along one to my fellow mom here at TDS. Once at home, I presented the Squeasy to my kids, and all were totally excited to give it a try. After washing it, I gave it to my son, A.K.A. huge snack pouch fan. I filled it with delicious vanilla yogurt, and once he finished it... he asked for seconds! My other two kids also gave it a go with applesauce, and both were huge fans too!
They loved the container. Loved the re-closable lid. Loved the color. And I really like that I can re-use it! Plus, every time I fill it with a yogurt treat, the design of the container allows for all of it to be squeezed out. No leftover mess stuck in the pouch. My son asks for the Squeasy Snacker every day, and it's now become a lunchbox staple at my house. My fellow TDS mom also had great success with the Squeasy Snacker at her house too. Her son loved his Squeasy Snacker while watching TV on the couch! Plus, she was totally impressed with how easy the Squeasy Snacker is to both put together and clean.
All in all, in my opinion, I'd say the Squeasy Snacker is a fantastic snack container option for kids - it's especially perfect for those snack pouch fans in your family!
