Juice in the Box - Reusable Drink Box Review

I received product for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

With school starting up soon, parents are faced with several choices, from which school supplies to purchase to which lunchtime options are best. It's never been easier for mom to send healthy drinks to school with Juice in the Box, a reusable drink box that's chemical free and easy to clean. They are available in five colors and are nearly indestructible. The Juice in the Box design is very similar to a disposable juice box design, but it's built to last and is reusable. Kids also drink out of Juice in the Box very much the same way they would from a disposable juice box but, because of the material it's made from, there's none of those messes made from it collapsing and juice squirting out. That in itself is a plus for me; I cringe when I give a child a disposable juice box because I know Murphy's Law will demand that juice will be spilled everywhere.

My niece, Zoe, comes over to visit often. She's taken a liking to Juice in the Box and requests to use it most every time. I'm happy to oblige because I'm able to put my drink of choice in it. I know that some of the juice box drinks on the market are made with too much sugar. Because I'm pouring my own liquid in Juice in the Box, I'm able to offer healthier hydration choices.

Juice in the Box comes with a polypropylene straw for the child to drink out of. It also has a hinged lid with a lockable latch. By pressing on a pop-open button and pushing up, the top section of Juice in the Box comes off so you can pour in liquid of choice. Then you put the top back on and your child can drink. The seal is a tad tight so it does take some muscle to take the top of the juice box off. Juice in the Box holds 8 oz of liquid, and the square shape makes it easy to fit in lunch boxes.
