First, lets talk about the box.
It is comprised of a main course container for sandwiches, meat portions, salads, or leftovers; 2 serving containers perfect for yogurt, vegetables, or cottage cheese; an ice pack that serves as a divider between the upper and lower layers; and a tight sealing lid that can also be used as a make-shift plate.
According to the box, the inner ice pack stays chilled for up to 6 hours. It also provides stats on how much the containers hold. For your information, the larger container holds 22 fl oz (660 mL) and each small container holds 10 fl oz (300mL).
Fit & Fresh's website boats that their system "makes it easy to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Innovative Preparation, Transportation, Dining, and many other unique, inventive products combine to create a system to prepare and enjoy healthy, fresh, portion-controlled snacks and meals." Although, I wouldn't really call it innovative nor consider their whole idea behind portion control to be new and exciting. Bento boxes have been around for ages and they boast compartments and portion control. However, Fit & Fresh's ice packs are pretty cool.
Speaking of ice packs...A few years ago, when I was in college, my mother bought 2 of these ice pack-like lunch bags off a home shopping channel. They were made by Flexi-Freeze because you could literally unzip the bag, lay it flat and freeze the whole thing. When you were ready to go, you pulled it out, zipped it up, packed it, and left.
The walls were filled with little bubbles, similar to industrial strength bubble wrap, that were filled with genuine purified water. No more leaky blue goo, or dangerous chemicals. The whole bag is squashable, stretchable and easy to fit into tight refrigerators. If you have no fridge to put it, you can just leave it under your desk until lunch time. Being a commuter to school, I never had a place to store my lunch, so sometimes I was forced to leave it in my car. Even left in a hot car for over 3 hours, I still was able to eat a cold lunch! It really was a time and money saver.
Because of having this bag already i decided to pair it up with the Fit & Fresh. Works perfectly! I can't wait to try it out!
