Last year we won a year supply of Gogo Squeez at a a family conference and my kids were thrilled! We have always been fans of Gogo Squeez anyway and now they knew they would have it in school lunches nearly every day! I love Gogo Squeez because I know they are getting a full serving of fruit (not just apples, but many are a combination of fruits and or veggies). The kids love Gogo Squeez because they get a fun package that makes eating on the go fast!
Well I noticed last year the kid’s lunchboxes (especially my sons!) were getting too full! Because we live in a warm area of the country we need to put in an ice pack with their lunches to make sure things do not spoil before lunch time. My son’s lunchbox was getting harder to pack and one day I decided to experiment – I popped a Gogo Squeez in the freezer overnight. I wondered if a Gogo Squeeze would explode in the freezer, but it was worth the risk. Believe it or not, the Gogo Squeez did not explode in the freezer and it worked as the perfect cold pack for school lunches! The Gogo Squeez worked as an ice pack until lunch time and then was an extra cold and refreshing part of his lunch spread!
I told a couple friends about it and they were like “I had never thought of that!” and then I shared a picture on Instagram and Facebook and people thought it was a good idea so I thought I should share it here. I thought I came up with something unique but I saw that Gogo Squeez actually posted “FroGo” on their page too so I guess great minds think alike!
Anyway – pop a Gogo Squeeze (or a box full) in the freezer the night before school, camp, or a trip to the beach and use it as a cold pack for your trip!
