Ziploc Review and Giveaway

Ziploc bags have hundreds of uses. Just this week I used them to store Jacob’s partially eaten sandwich, puzzle pieces, m&m’s, and half of a tomato. So many uses means that my family goes through boxes of Ziploc bags monthly so I was excited when I had the chance to review some Ziploc products.

I reviewed the Ziploc brand storage bags with the smart zip seal, Ziploc brand freezer slider bags, Ziploc brand sandwich bags, and the Ziploc brand smart snap containers. I had used the sandwich bags and the containers before but not the other two products.

Ziploc slider bags with expandable bottoms

I loved the Ziploc slider bags. First of all, it was great knowing that the bag was actually closed because it had a zipper on it and I knew when it was all the way to the left the bag was properly closed. The bags had a space to write on them which is helpful for labeling what is in the bag or when the food in the bag was made. My favorite part about this bag though was the expandable bottom. I think that it’s a great concept and helps the bags stand up so that the items don’t fall out of the bag when it’s open.
