Keep Your Produce Fresh with FridgeSmart from Tupperware (Review & Giveaway)


I love fresh fruits and veggies, but I happen to be the only person in my house who will eat just about anything placed in front of me. My husband only likes certain veggies, likes hardly any fruits, and my son, well- he's a picky toddler. I buy a variety of fruits and veggies to enjoy, and to encourage my son to try. Needless to say, a lot of our produce winds up going bad before I can eat all of it myself... and we watch our hard earned money go right down the garbage disposal.

Presented by MBP Spotlight Sponsor, Susan Bushong

Last month, I was lucky enough to be able to work with Susan Bushong, an Independent Consultant with Tupperware. Now, when I think about home parties and direct sales, my mind immediately goes to Tuppperware. I remember my mom having Tupperware parties when I was just a little girl, and our cabinets and cupboards stocked with cups, bowls, and more. I even had one of those famous Tupperware shape sorters (and they still make it!). If you don't know about Tupperware, you must have been hiding under a rock, because honey- it's been around for a long time!

Fridge Smart Container Set by Tupperware

With summertime being prime time for fresh fruits and veggies, Susan wanted to send me a Tupperware product that would help to prolong the life of my home grown or store bought produce. So, Susan sent me one of the well-loved and trusted Tupperware Fridge Smart Containers. I was so excited to receive this, because I knew it would be something that I would use on a daily basis, and it would keep my produce fresh, as well as save me money.


My fresh fruit, just home from the grocery store.

I decided to pick up some grapes and bananas, because those are two fruits that Balian sometimes eats. It's always wishy-washy with the bananas, as Sacha and I dislike them. The nectarines looked divine, and I was excited to be bringing those home to snack on! I usually keep grapes in the refrigerator after washing them, and my mom used to always leave them sitting out on the kitchen counter. It can be sort of hard to remember which fruits and veggies need to be refrigerated and which ones don't. Tupperware's Fridge Smart Container takes the guess work out of storing your fruits and veggies. Not only does it show you which fruits or veggies should be stored in fridge containers, right on the container, the Fridge Smart Containers come with a handy little printed guide, telling you how to store your fresh produce.

Part of the printed guide, which tells me that bananas and nectarines should not be stored in the fridge, or in a container. The grapes should be refrigerated in a container. How handy!



My fresh fruit, according to how they should be stored- grapes in, bananas and nectarines, out!


After I washed my grapes, and gave them a bit of a paper towel dry off, I placed them into the Fridge Smart Container. I was actually amazed that the entire bunch of grapes fit inside the container. It was roomier than I thought it was! The grapes looked nice and cozy, and I was ready to see just how long they would stay fresh, inside their new container. I have had such a problem with grapes lately. Normally, I buy a bunch, and then 2-3 days later, they're already going moldy. Considering that they're usually almost $2.00/lb, that's a lot of money being wasted.



Bright, beautiful looking grapes, ready to be stored.

Before I could put my grapes into the fridge, however, I needed to check to see how the open air lock on the top of the lid needed to be positioned. Some fruits and veggies need air circulation through their containers to stay fresh- so they can breathe. There are three positions on the top lock, open, half open, and closed.



The little pictures on the front show you which fruits and veggies need to have air coming into the container. Can you spot the grapes?






I switched the lock over to the correct slider for my grapes, and then put the top on the container.


Five days after first bringing home the grapes, they look just as bright, fresh and healthy as they did on day one! I have been so impressed by the Fridge Smart Container that Susan sent to me, that I think I'm going to want to get some more of them. Yes, I have crisper drawers in my fridge. The containers fit easily into the drawers, and I know what's inside. I usually end up dumping a bunch of stuff into the crisper drawers, and the produce gets buried, I can't see it, so I forget it;s there, and it goes bad. Wasted money. Plus, it all goes bad super fast, with all of the gases mixing together. Did you know that produce gives off gases, and some fruits and veggies shouldn't be stored near each other? Yay science- or what little I remember from science class!

There's a reason why so many women, moms and dads, grandparents, etc trust Tupperware. There's a reason why when visiting someone's home who's around the same age of my mom, I see the kids drinking from those old plastic Tupperware tumblers, or see salads being served up in those old bowls with lids. Tupperware rocks! It's pretty indestructible, and does exactly what it promises to do- it keeps your food fresh!

Tupperware has really come a long way through the years, and they've got some products that are definitely worth checking out!
