Now that it’s finally getting cooler in Texas for the winter, it’s time to start sending warm and cozy soups, chilis and leftover casserole in lunchboxes.

Thermos insulated mugs and food jars are the environmentally and budget friendly alternative to disposable bags and cups. They provide the highest quality insulation technology of any products on the market, keeping your foods and drinks hotter and cooler for longer. Our Thermos double wall vacuum insulation technology allows you to lock in temperature for 12-24 hours (really!) and will preserve flavor and freshness. (Whoa, right!)

Now I don’t have to hear, “Mom, my soup was cold and I only ate 1 bite.” (Followed by, I’m starving, can I eat everything in the fridge for my after school snack?!)

We put this Thermos Stainless Steel Food Jar to the test. I warmed up some leftover chili and dropped it into the food jar and sent it with Steve to work. He leaves before 7 in the morning…and eats around noon…so 5 hours. Warm, was it? Yes, it was!

It was a snap for him just to open the lid and enjoy it with the rest of his lunch. No need to spend time in line or waiting for the microwave to warm it up in the breakroom at the office.

This weekend, we’re giving away a Thermos gift pack to 1 winner that includes…

Entry details below…good luck!

Because I *don’t* have any thermal containers, I haven’t been sending anything warm and cozy with my children to school. If I had one, I’d like to send the hot dinner items that were left over from dinner the night before.

I like soup in a thermos, but my son was just asking for tortellini for lunch in a thermos, but I don’t own one!

Amy P November 30, 2012 at 9:44 am

My favorite would be hot chicken chili!

My favorite food to pack in a Thermos for lunch is good ol’ fashioned macaroni and cheese. While offering physical nourishment, it also stirs up fond memories of childhood for me! :)

shannon oelrich November 30, 2012 at 10:16 am

my daughter really wants to be able to pack ramen noodles for lunch

My kids LOVE to take homemade soup in their lunch. We make a lot of soups in the winter, cheddar broccoli, cheese tortellini, chicken noodle, minestrone, etc.

Mary Esarey November 30, 2012 at 11:16 am

I like packing cream of broccoli soup for my son’s and husband’s lunches.

Nicole-Lynn November 30, 2012 at 11:27 am

My favorite cozy, warm meal to take on the go is chicken noodle soup! Yum! This would be great for my husband. He has been starting to pack a lunch for work. Thanks for the opportunity.

Melissa November 30, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I just tried your Tortellini Soup and would love to send that with her to school. She would think I am the greatest MOM if I could send her to school with a hot lunch. She is a picky teen and PBJ everyday just doesn’t cut it.

I like packing my homemade White Chicken Chili. Hmmm. Now, I’m suddenly hungry for White Chicken Chili…. ;-)

ML November 30, 2012 at 9:44 pm

My hubby loves my homemade chili and soups. This would be great for his lunches!

Pati Keil November 30, 2012 at 9:45 pm

I love to have soups and casseroles for lunch and it’s so much more economical to bring my own food from home instead of buying from the deli or other restaurant. These containers would be so handy!

Becky Milstead November 30, 2012 at 9:46 pm

I repinned Lentil Chili. Looks yummy!
