Some like it hot, some like it cold

Crocodile Creek Stainless Steel Insulated Food JarsWe’re lunch packers around my house, but when there’s no microwave to heat up anything, it makes it challenging to pack the hot lunch my daughter would beg for. Too bad we didn’t have new Crocodile Creek insulated food jars, now at mom-run boutique Cattiwampus.

Known for their friendly graphics and thoughtful designs on things like lunchboxes and placemats (you have seen them everywhere, trust me), Crocodile Creek now brings their expertise into BPA-free, phthalate-free stainless steel insulated jars meant to keep food cold for up to 4 hours and warm for up to 5 hours.

It’s not exactly avant-garde design, but kids like mine will love motifs like the firetruck and ballerina or of course, the girl-favorite butterfly (pictured) which bridges little kid and big kid nicely.

One note: You’ll want to be sure to handwash these. They’re not for you if you’re addicted to dishwashing. -Kristen

You can find the new Crocodile Creek insulated jars, along with a slew of other great Crocodile Creek products at Cattiwampus.

    We just had the “what will I do when I start school because I only like hot food” conversation?

    Once again, CMP has saved my life. Thank you so much.

    Funny, I just ordered the butterfly one for my daughter (not having seen this post) as a back-to-school gift. It matches her lunch box!
