If you're like me, you spend a lot of time looking for just the right products for your family. Whether it's clothes, shoes, toys, or even dishes. It's so hard to find products that are consciously made, good for the environment (and us), but also well made and useful. I spent a lot of time (and wasted money) trying to find a snack storage solution that worked for me and my kids. I do like (and still use) things like reusable bags, but what about when you want to put crackers or some other crisp snack in your diaper bag and not worry about them getting crushed into a powder?
I just recently discovered this brand, and am a fan already. RePlay is based in, and makes their products right here in the USA. They make dishware for children (and soon they'll have adult-sized dishware too!) The best part is they're made of recycled milk jugs! Amazing!
I'm generally not a fan of plastic. I try to use stainless steel, glass, or wood. But with kids, it's hard to find a snack storage solution made from these materials. In the past, I've used the half pint glass ball jars for snacks, but those don't hold a ton of snack. Also, they're glass, and my little bear is pretty rough on his dishware. I've tried silicone snack cups, but they're not leak-proof and the lids didn't hold tight either. So when I saw these for sale in a little toy shop, I thought I'd give them a try.
How they work is each cup screws to the other, and then the lid is on top. You can buy additional kids if you prefer to have separate cups, or want backups. Each cup holds 3/4 cup of food, and so far seems to hold liquid things without leaking. They also fit nicely into a cup holder, or bottle pocket of a diaper bag.
So far, I love them! Here's a rundown of the Pros & Cons of the RePlay snack stacker: Pros:
Made from recycled milk jugs!
Made in the USA
Easy to use
Comes with replacement lids
Stack together for convenience
Still made from plastic :(
Might be too big/too small for your needs
RePlay also makes other useful flatware like plates, cups, bowls, utensils, and more! For the full review, be sure to check out my YouTube video below.
