Be Carton Smart Review

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard of Carton Smart? I know that I hate all of the cans that are just taking up space in my pantry! Don't you? BeCartonSmart is a new line of products that are shelf safe and will easily add extra space to your pantry. Feel free to donate your old cans to a food bank! I know that I will be doing that! It's time to open our eyes to a whole new world of eating! 
Here is what we received in our #CartonSmart box:

Cranberry Sauce

How does it taste? Simply delicious! Exactly how you would expect it to. The carton does an incredible job of holding in the freshness of the food.  I also bought a can of pumpkin puree to test how each would taste. The canned pumpkin did not taste like pumpkin to me. However, the organic pumpkin puree was super yummy! Pumpkin Pie anyone?
I adore cranberry sauce. But this took the cake for me. Absolutely scrumptious. 
Imagine if everyone made one small, smart decision a day. How much would it help our planet and our own personal worlds? As an individual, it feels small, but as a collective, the small, smart decisions add up. Tetra Pak applauds the thousands of small acts of smartness that add up to make a big difference. Our Tetra Pak carton packages, designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness, are one small way to live smarter.

As well as saving space when you really need it. My mother cooks during the big Holidays. She always buys TWO Turkeys! Save space, and eat food that tastes great! Who wouldn't want that?

  1. I never thought about cartons having that much less waste than the can. Really makes me rethink my buying!

  2. I'm all for this! We already buy shelf-stable milk in Tetra Pak cartons to keep on hand for my son (and cooking). We've never had any issues; it's a great process!

  3. I'm so excited that they are now putting pumpkin in these cartons, bye bye BPA!
