We received a package from the people at Banana Guard with a bunch of their products to review and giveaway the other day. Enclosed was a “Banana Guard”, “S’wich Guard”, “Froot Guard” and “Froot Case”. I was excited to work with this company for many reasons, two of them being they are Made in Canada and I HATE when my banana gets smashed in my bag.
Each piece is made out of strong plastic and easy to open. I sent my husband to work with the Banana Guard. He rides his bike to work and would never bring a banana with him because it would just be smashed by the time he got to work. I think he loves it because he’s used it all week. My daughter loves the S’wich Guard and loves to carry it around by it’s handle. And I love the Froot guard, my apple fits perfectly in it and no worries about it bruising. We haven’t had a chance to try out the Froot Case but it looks perfect for a kiwi, one of my favorite fruits.
Before I got these products I was wondering how in the world they could make the Banana Guard fit all bananas. But it does, we have had three different bunches of bananas and all of them have fit.
I would recommend these products to anyone who needs to carry food somewhere. Such as, lunch for school/work, a picnic, taking kids on an outing, hiking, etc…
Below is more info from the people at Banana Guard:
With over a million sold, the patented Banana Guard has allowed people of all ages to enjoy the world’s most favourite fruit at work, school or play without the worry that it will become smushed and inedible! Remarkably this device fits over 90% of commercially available bananas. How? Highly curved bananas can be straightened slightly to fit into upper curve and very straight bananas can be bent ever so slightly to fit into the mold.
Aren’t you fed up having to eat bruised apples or peaches that have been punctured by stuff in your napsack? The Froot Guard is specially designed to fit the average size larger round fruit such as apples, pears and peaches however its use is certainly not limited to holding just these fruit. Many customers place their grapes and cherries in these as well.
The Froot Guard is made of the same sturdy, FDA approved plastic used in the Banana Guard and also features a carabiner hook so that it can easily be attached to the outside of your backpack. A sturdy locking mechanism prevents premature opening and there are several ventilation holes so your fruit doesn’t end up fermenting!
The tops and bottoms of the Froot Guard are interchangeable with the other colours available so you can make your favourite colour combination.
All the same benefits as the Froot Guard, this beauty will stop your smaller fruits like kiwi’s, plums and apricots from sustaining undesirable trauma.
Aren’t you tired of having squished sandwiches? How about never needing to use plastic wrap again? We designed the S’wich Guard with the above in mind. It fits most common sandwich bread sizes and as a bonus it can double as your plate! It is even safe for the microwave for your gourmet hot lunch.
All our products are made of FDA approved recyclable plastic, BPA-FREE and made in Canada where they pass through the highest quality assurance testing. The Banana Guards, the Froot Guards/Cases and the S’wich Guards are of course dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.
