Fast food gets fabulous

Whoever invented those grocery-store kids’ lunches with the crackers and stuff is probably rich now, right? But if you’ve ever actually purchased one you know that 1) they’re overpriced and 2) they may or may not be actual food you’re okay with having your kids eat.

Still… the idea of it. Genius! If only someone could do something like that, only with good, real foods. And hey, while they’re at it, what if they could make it shelf-stable so that you wouldn’t even need to refrigerate it? Now that would be something.

Well, guess what. GoPicnic went and did it. Shelf-stable meals you can just grab and take with you. Ones for kids, ones for grown-ups. Gluten-free? Not a problem. Kosher? They’ve got you covered. Vegetarian? Check! (And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, they’ve even got meals for vegans.) No mystery ingredients. No over-processed glop. Just wholesome, yummy foods, in an ultra-portable package.

GoPicnic was kind enough to send me some to try and I have to tell you, these folks are the real deal. My kids would rather eat these than my (lovingly prepared! not that I’m bitter!) home-packed lunches. Now GoPicnic is my secret weapon for Lunch Emergencies. (Oh, like you’ve never had a lunch emergency.)

Anyway. Three lucky Want Not readers are going to win their choice of six different GoPicnic meals! Want to play? Of course you do! First, go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, August 19th, 2009 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generation and freshness date. What’s that? You don’t have a freshness date? Okay, then. Just the random number thing.

Ready? Go!

    PS Pretty sure my freshness date is stamped somewhere that I can’t see it. In which case, neither can you. 😛

  104. School starts here tomorrow. I admit to a few lunch emergencies. Pick me!!

  140. Sounds great! Thanks for the contest.

  141. Yes, please!

  167. I think I may be well past my freshness date! These meals look great, and my kids are always complaining because I won’t buy them the lunch kits.

  168. sounds fabulous AND delicious. thanks

  169. Oh, wow, my vegan kid would get a real kick out of these! Even though I’m pretty sure there’s no real food in those “other” meals, this makes me feel a tiny bit less sad that he won’t get to experience them…

  170. I would love to try these. I got uncomfortable with my daughter eating the “other” kind because of the fat content!

    My Freshness date was last week, I think. 🙁

  171. Yum, these look good! I would actually like to try one for my own lunch emergencies. As a vegetarian, lunch options are very limited, unless I want to buy an expensive meal at the one local restaurant that has decent vegetarian options or bring my own, which I don’t always have time to prepare.

  172. I’m very interested in trying these!!

  173. These would be great as school lunches!

  174. These sound fun!

  175. Just this morning I was dreading the start of lunchbox packing in 2 wks.

  178. Thanks Mir, I’d love to try these too.

  180. I am so past my freshness date it’s not even funny. But these sound cool.

    And yes, it’s still possible to have a lunch emergency when you’re packing lunch only for yourself!

  208. These sound great. I will look into buying these!

  236. school starts on wednesday, and my son was begging for lunchables – barf! These sound much better 🙂

  237. Yum!

  238. Oh, man, I could use those!

  239. Me please! My son, by default, dislikes everything I pack for him. If it comes pre-packaged he’s bound to love it!

  240. wow, those look fantastic!

  241. Hey those look yummy! Even though I know they are awful I still keep two luchables in the fridge because we do have lunch emergencies every so often… These look much better!

  242. Yummy! Great contest!

  243. oh gosh we would love to try these!

  244. Sounds perfect! Can’t wait to try them!

  245. How nice of you to have this contest. If I win, I promise to share!

  246. Maybe my son would eat these. Anyone else have a problem with their child not eating thier lunch at school? I don’t understand why he doesn’t eat his lunch.

  247. So, am I disqualified if I admit I’d use these for my own lunch emergencies?

    The kid’s lunch is always prepared. Mine usually ends up being something less than healthy that’s grabbed from the pantry at the last minute.

  248. Oooh! Pick me!

  249. I really would love to try these!

  250. Very interesting! I’m in!

  260. These would be great!

  261. Please enter me!

  262. I don’t have lunch packing kiddos yet, but these look like great travel food for preschoolers

  263. My daughter’s preschool cut hot lunches to keep tuition down for this year. Which means next week I have to start packing lunches for the first time, ever. This would come in handy for my first lunch emergency…which I’m sure will happen right around day 3

  264. I’m pretty sure my freshness date is long gone (or maybe, just maybe, within the next six months), but I’d love to have some lunch options that are good and better for me.

    Thanks, Mir!

  265. Sounds awesome!

  266. Those look really cool.

  280. Of course I do! Good stuff.

  281. I would love to win some of these!

  282. School started for my kids yesterday. And already the discussion about lunches. All mine want is junk and it makes me crazy. Maybe this would help.

  283. Absolutely adore this website! I don’t know how I found you but I am so glad I did!

  284. Cool, thanks for the info, these do look great for lunch emergencies. Have to hide them from dad, no fair he using them on the rare day it’s his turn 🙂

  286. What a great idea!

  287. These look awesome!

  292. We’d love to try these!

  293. Lunchables that aren’t junk? Wow.

    Although now I’m all local, after reading some foodie books. I can’t win for losing.

  294. my daughter would love these!

  295. Pretty please, pretty Mir? (shyly, with toe digging into dirt)

  300. Would love to try this! Thanks!

  301. We’d love to try these.

  303. Me please

  304. Everyday is a lunch emergency for me….oy!

  305. were game, thanks

  306. RNG, pick me!

  307. I have way too many lunch emergencies. These look perfect.

  308. looks interesting

  309. That’s awesome! Talk about cool for the emergency kit (and way better than those nasty cheese-and-peanut butter crackers.

  310. if it involved food…I’m THERE! :}

  311. These would be so great!

  312. These look like really good alternatives to my usual lunch emergency go-tos (granola bars).

  313. Sounds great for those emergency lunches!

  314. interesting!

  315. Sweet!

  316. I shudder to think what Lunchables are really made of. I’ll be trying these whether I win or not. Thanks for the tip!

  317. Sounds tasty!

  318. Oh yeah, we TOTALLY know about Lunch Emergencies in this house!

  319. My co-workers ACT like kids – and I think that constitutes a lunch emergency, don’t you?

  320. Sounds like a great back-up plan! Thanks for the chance to win.

  321. I’m in! Lunch Emergencies aplenty over here.

  322. How cool. Lunchables frighten me. I’m definitely going to check these out.

  323. Mmmmmm, I want one right now!

  324. perfect!

  325. Ooohhh… solutions to lunch emergencies… Off I go to look them up.

  326. Sounds perfect! I have a very picky 2.5 year old who only snacks right now, won’t sit down for a full meal. I’ve gotten him to eat the lunchable version a few times, the only thing semi-healthy was the wheat crackers. Processed cheese food scares me, but not one manufacturer in the reg. supermarket makes a kids lunch without lots of processing and preservatives. $6 a pop is a bit steep for these (for a toddler) but dang, they sound great.

  327. They look great! Thanks Mir!

  328. Sounds yummy!!

  329. I would love to try those!

  330. looks yummy…. I want to try it!

  331. Free food is always a good thing 🙂

  335. I’ll give it a go! 😉

  336. my daughter would love these.. she stares longingly at the prepackaged lunchables in the store, but she knows she’ll never get them 🙂

  337. Pick me, pick me!!

  338. Hmm these may be a great thing, my husband just decided he was a vegetarian last week. Can you do that at 40?

  339. How cool. Some people are just so clever.

  340. Aaahh, picky 18-y-o off to college. Must have!

  341. Hmm….they really taste good?

  342. I’m in, thanks Mir!

  343. a great thing to try; come on random number generator!

  344. I would love to try these. The not-so good for you ones are an occasional guilty pleasure!

  345. Would love to try these ’round here. Thanks, Mir!

  346. Pick me please!

  352. We have more lunch emergencies than I’d care to admit! Count me in!

  353. I’d love to try!

  354. how wonderful – I hate going past the lunchables and saying no. They make me feel so mean …

  355. Funny, I was just making a list of possible school lunches for my son to pick from. Last year he barely ever ate anything I sent, except for the small goodie I included. I started threatening to not send the goody, but I couldn’t bring myself to take it away from him.

  356. Those look great!

  357. We’ve been known to have a lunch emergency or two!

  358. Mmm….I want some too!

  361. Thanks Mir!

  362. I can’t tell you how excited I am to hear of this product!

  363. Pick me! Although, I am wary that the boy might end up preferring this to the home-made variety.

  364. These sound great!

  365. PLEASE pick me!!!!

  366. Yum!

  367. My kids had Lunchables for the first time a few weeks back. How do these compare nutritionally?

  370. this sounds great!! hope i win!!

  371. when is there NOT a lunch emergency? and my kids aren’t even in school yet!

  372. mmmmmm

  373. Oh please pick me! I have a sweet little kindergartener who needs gluten free lunch stuff. He will not get to eat in the school cafeteria very much because of that (Poor little fellow! Apparently, the cafeteria is ALL the rage nowadays). I was just trying to figure out what to fix him for lunch. One can only eat so much GF “bread”, you know. 🙂

    Please, for the preh-SHOUS!!

  374. Oh so cool!! I’d love to give these a try, and likely will even if I don’t win! Thanks for letting us know about them!

  385. These sound like something my daughter would really like. She’s hard to feed at lunchtime. Thanks for hosting this contest.

  386. These look awesome. I know my daughter, the best procrastinator ever, would love to have a way to avoid making her lunch at 9:30 at night. Thanks for the chance, Mir!

  387. I could sleep an extra 5 minutes if my lunch was already packed!

  388. Need these, need these, need these!

  389. I’m pretty fresh with most of my dates. Therein could lie the problem.

  403. Always have lunch issues… Well, just issues in general, I guess

  404. Oh my gosh, my daughter has been begging for me to send Lunchables to school with her for lunch because “everyone else has them!” and I just can’t bring myself to do it. This rocks!

  405. Ooh, these sound great! Thanks for the giveaway!

  406. me

  407. Went swimming this morning. Don’t know if that helps or hurts my freshness date.

    My daughter would be thrilled if I won these as I’m a mean Mommy who doesn’t buy those other things.

  408. Woo Hoo!!!!! Thank you….

  409. would love to be picked.

  410. Hmmm… husband’s lunch sack, kid’s meal on the go, my lunch at the office – hmmm….

  411. What an awesome idea.

  412. I want one!

    Like so many others, I am hoping that nice random number generator picks my number!

    Thanks, Mir

  426. Pick me! Please……………

  427. What if I keep it in my office for my own lunch emergencies, instead of sharing with my kid? Oh wait, I’m pregnant, so everything I eat is being shared with one of my kids!

  428. LOL! I think my freshness date is long past, but they say some things get better with age!!

    These meals would be great not only for quick snacks, but going on my trips this fall. I have 2 trips scheduled with flights and GoPicnic would save me from airport food!!!

    I plan on getting some to use with the grandkids. On errand days we could stop at a park and have our GoPicnic and then play before heading home.

  429. That would be perfect for kid’s lunches when we don’t have time to make them!

  430. What a great idea! I would love to try these healthy options.

  431. pick me please!

  432. mir, your shoes are so pretty. 🙂

    These look like you can get actual food, which contrasts starkly with The Other Packaged Lunch Thingees; on a whim, I picked up one of The Other Packaged Lunch Thingees up before a long train ride, and inside that box was an assortment of processed foodlike substances. Not appetizing.

    Glad to know there’s an alternative.
