Keep Munching with the Munchie Mug

My son loves his snacks. He's constantly munching on cheerios, goldfish, crackers, you name it. Unfortunately, all this snacking leads to big messes. I've tried numerous "no-spill" containers but he always manages to spill his snacks everywhere. That said, I decided to try one more container and give the Munchie Mug a chance.

The Munchie Mug snack cup is different because it features a soft fabric closure that's easy on little hands. It also holds a lot and sports an adorable ocean design. It comes with a lid that will keep snacks fresh when you're not using it. However, none of this really matters unless it actually works, right? So does it work? You bet! I was a little worried that my son wouldn't understand where to put his hand, but he figured it out immediately. He just reached his little hand through the soft fabric and grabbed a goldfish. He then proceeded to shake the cup vigorously and turn it upside-down. Nothing. This seemed to perplex him a bit, but in the end he was content just to eat his snack.

The cup is environmentally friendly and made of safe materials for your child. It's also economically friendly, as it is made in the USA! To purchase your own Munchie Mug, visit the website here.

  2. awesome! i've tried lots of "spill-proof" cups and they never really work.

  3. How cool is this cup!! Who would have thought to make something with fabric-like material that's soft for little hands. Every no-spill cup that I have are hard plastic.

  4. I would love this for my little ones! We have another kind that doesn't really work and this looks great!

  7. This is really neat! We have snacktraps for the girls, but they bent the plastic cover outward so for easier access to bites... and easier cheerio launching potential! :). This cup looks like it could be a great alternative and better keep the snacks in the container.

  8. Our son has just started eating finger foods, so this would be terrific for him. Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. I have a two yr old nephew that I take care of a lot. I always have snacks in my car or in my bag for him. Many times these get all over and make a mess. This would be the perfect thing for me to keep the snacks in.

  12. I have done without a snack holder and my car just doesn't appreciate it anymore. I've only heard great things about the munchie mug, we'd love to try it out.

  13. I'd love to have my toddler use this super cool mug. I'm tired of picking up cheerios from the house and car floor! =P

  15. I saw a little girl just this morning, shaking handfuls of cheerios out of her "spill proof" cup. That's why we don't have any, but a truly spill proof one sure would be handy! My son eats a lot of snacks and it would be great to let him help himself!

  16. This looks perfect for car trips! Maybe I wouldn't be picking up so much out of the carseats when were done!

  17. The Munchie Mug looks like a great product. We haven't gotten to the snacking stage yet, but it is always good to be prepared. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. The munchie mug would be great to take on our trip to Russia to bring home our little boy we are adopting. He would enjoy using it for cheerios or some other toddler-friendly treat :)

  20. I would love to try one of these. My daughter outsmarted other brands. She quickly realized how to pry the lids off or hold down the flaps long enough to dump the contents all over.

  24. This would work great for when we go to soccer games with my son, then my little one can just snack and I don't have to worry of the snacks falling on the ground (of course the ones on the ground always seem to taste better!)
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  26. What a great cup. This would really help my son with his snacks, because he's always spilling them everywhere.

  87. This looks really awsome. We have been using a plastic bag with big mess consequences, lol. I have avoided the snack cup because they never looked sturdy and they all seemed to have edges that looked like my sons fingers would get stuck in! Thanks for the entry.
