Review:  I was pleasantly surprised when I received this bag since it was dark blue and not the purple shown in the picture but it is much bigger than I expected and would be too big to use as a lunch box.  It is a  cooler bag that can be used for both hot and cold dishes and holds a lot.  It is made of cloth, is sturdy, has two thick handles, has a silvery inside including the top of the cooler bag to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold and a zipper around three sides.  The zipper tended to get stuck going around the first rounded corner whether it was full or empty so it could be better with a plastic insert around the corners to keep the cooler’s shape and make the zippering smoother.   There was a good size outside pocket that would be useful to hold my keys, my license and a few dollars or a credit card.  Directions would be helpful.

We went to the beach recently and I was able to pack the following for the family:

two 32 oz. bottles of a sports drink
one 16.9 oz bottle of diet soda
three 16 oz bottles of water
2  three cup containers one holding grapes and the other cherries
1 two cup container holding baby carrots
3 sandwiches
5 ice packs – I did add ice packs to the cooler since I didn’t know how cool it would keep items on its own but without instructions I didn’t know if they were intended to be used or needed.

I will definitely continue to use this cooler probably more for cold food than hot.  I will use it at the beach, for picnics or when taking cold items – especially drinks – to a friend’s or family member’s home.  All in all, a useful item that I can see myself using continuously especially in the warmer weather.

HomeFlav does make other kitchen items many of which I would find useful and others not.  I will definitely give some of their other products a try.
