Tesco Press 'N' Seal Sandwich Bags
Advantages: strong, easy to seal, good size
Disadvantages: none for me
My son has a packed lunch for his school dinners and so I have to have a form of food bag in all of the time really. I will buy them from anywhere really but I am not keen on the ones which you tie with a little plastic fastener as they seem too much of a faff for me really so I will buy ones with tie tops or a press and seal fastening for ease of use usually. The ones I am using currently are the Tesco press and seal food bags which I have used many times before as well.
The food bags come in a recycled cardboard box which is also recyclable again once empty! The packaging is quite simple really and simply tells us that this is a Tesco product, that there are sixty bags in the pack and it shows a picture of a sandwich as well to illustrate what the bags main use is.
The box features a perforated front section which lifts up and you can then pull a food bag out. I find the bags come out individually most of the time so I don't have to stuff the excess bags back in on a regular basis or anything!
The actual bags are a medium sized clear plastic bag. They are certainly big enough to hold a sandwich or wrap for my son which is the main reason I buy them. The bags feel really good quality too and not like they are going to rip at the slightest touch which is how I remember the bags my mum used for us when we were growing up to be as she used to buy them from the discount store and it was probably a pound for about 500! What I like about these bags is that once I have popped my son's lunch in them I can just press along the seal all the way across the bag and then I know the food in there is going to be kept fresh which is obviously important. The seal is really easy to do as well and so it is not like I am messing about trying to seal the bags which would put me off using them to be honest.
I also use food bags to place my packs of cooked meat in once I have opened them so to keep them a bit fresher in the fridge. I do find if I have purchased a larger pack of ham than normal that I need to use a bag on either end of the pack to make it fully covered but if I buy a small square pack of ham then they fit in just the one bag. I use two bags to cover my open bacon pack as well and so these aren't just limited to school dinners. Whenever we go for a picnic these bags are used for all manner of thing to eat whilst we are there and they are also great for storing bits of craft items or parts of a lego set together with the instructions if needs be.
A pack of sixty food bags cost £1.57 from Tesco but a box will usually last me a couple of months and so I think that it is a reasonable price to pay for a good quality food bag which is versatile, keeps food fresh and won't rip in your lunch bag.
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: A good quality food bag which is great for packed lunches
