Munch Cupboard asked me if I would like to try and review their Food Wrap, I was very pleased with the idea and here is my review of the eco-friendly way to wrap food from the Wellington based Munch –
I do not like cling wrap, I must confess that we have a box in the cupboard but hardly ever use it. I must also confess to having smashed a few saucers by precariously balancing them on top of things as lids. My saucers are now safe, thanks to Munch Food Wraps.
The main use for that awful cling wrap in this house is to stop insects or the furry animals who live here getting to the food. We have a tag team cat and dog who will steal anything uncovered and share, yes, really. This morning I used the Food Wrap to cover fruit while it got to room temperature and it was not touched by our dynamic duo and they love a strawberry.
The above photos show how this Food Wrap works, it has all sorts of good things in it like beeswax, jojoba oil, propolis and Manuka honey. How fab is that? It is a simple way to be greener and without waste. As you can see in the photos, it molds with the warmth of your hands to be airtight seal just like cling wrap. It is so satisfying to mold it to exactly how you want it. When you have used it you can just wash it in soapy water and it will last a good few months.
You can watch a couple of videos here.
As well as covering fruit, I have used the Food Wrap to take a sandwich to work, cover cheese in the fridge and over the top of a jug of yeast/water mixed to make bread. I left the yeast jug out in the sunshine and the Food Wrap coped fine.
As it is coming up for Christmas and Secret Santa seems very popular, I think you may have an idea for your Secret Santa with this eco-friendly gift? The Food Wraps are very attractive with lovely designs. They are going to be a permanent fixture in our house. I am always trying to find ways to go green without inconvenience.
So, go on, give them a try and thanks for reading. Below is a photo of the dynamic duo food thieves, Milly the dog and Harley the most mischevious cat we have ever owned.
