Del Monte Squeezers (Review & Giveaway)

Disclosure: The Del Monte products, information, and two gift packs (one for me and one for a reader) have been provided by Del Monte. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

We've got close to a dozen perfectly good lunch boxes in the house, just from the kids (and my husband) having them for school or work. What we don't have is a good dozen or so lunch ideas to put in them. We tend to get stuck in the same rut, day-after-day, week-after-week, and no one complains at all, but I know it would be nice to mix it up a little bit.


One way we've found to do that, is by including Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers. These pouches are perfect for lunches because they're not going to burst, rip, or leak, and you don't have to have an eating utensil (that the kiddos have to remember to bring home to wash). They're squeezable pouches, with a twist on/off cap, and my kids and husband both really like them.


He makes these faces, I have no idea why, but they make me laugh anyway.

I think these are good but would be even better coming right out of the refrigerator. I love fruit period, but chilled fruit snacking is even better!

There are five flavors. We were sent the Blueberry & the Apple Cinnamon. My son jumped right in to try the latter tonight, and he was happy as could be. No, it's not lunch time, but he's just getting up and around after being sick, and wanted something light and tasty to eat, besides soup. The Del Monte FruitBurst was just the perfect thing.  You can read about the flavors below:

We love squeezy pouches, but have not tried the Del Monte ones. I love the convenience of pouched food, especially in the car. I have even found myself eating them on days where I haven't had enough fruit and veggies!
