Bluapple – Prolongs Freshness Review & Giveaway

I was compensated for this post, however all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own. This post is based solely on my personal opinion and experience and results may vary from person to person.

Don’t you just hate it when your produce spoils before you have a chance to eat it and your money just gets thrown in the trash? Produce costs are rising and some produce can be pretty expensive. My husbands favorite apple is the Honeycrisp apple, they are only available in the fall and can fetch prices of over $4 per pound. They are so beautiful and sweet we cannot resist and is not a fruit that you want to let go to waste in the refrigerator. Have you ever heard of ethylene gas? It is not a gas you put in your car, it is a gas that naturally ripens produce. This gas is sort of thought of as the aging hormone of fruits and vegetables and is even used commercially to speed up the ripening process. In our refrigerator ethylene gas can be a bad thing, sealed nice and tight the gas has nowhere to go and is absorbed into the produce in effect causing it to ripen/spoil faster.

Bluapple

Introducing Bluapple, designed to absorb ethylene gas for up to three months. The Bluapple takes no batteries and does not wear out, it just absorbs ethylene gas up to it maximum capacity. It is not a deodorizer that will add other odors to your refrigerator and it is small enough to sit on the shelf out of the way, in a crisper drawer or storage bin.I have been trying the Bluapple in the refrigerator for the last month and it really is worth its weight in gold. Our lettuce lasts longer, carrots stay crisp and fresh. I keep grapes in the refrigerator in an open bowl so when the kids go to reach for a snack they will see them sitting there and avoid other unhealthy snacks. In the past my grapes would spoil within 4 days and the majority of time we had to throw some out, but with the Bluapple they last over a week and I have not thrown out any grapes since we started using it.

The wonderful folks at Bluapple have been gracious enough to offer one package of Bluapples to three of my wonderful readers. Be sure to show them some love on their facebook page and twitter. To enter for your chance to win use the Giveaway Tools widget below. Good luck!

Comments

  1. Karen says

    I would really like to save money by keeping things fresh. Often I don’t get a chance to finish what is in the crisper before it goes bad.

  2. Cheryl Chervitz says

    I really don’t have any methods right now. I just try to remember that its in the fridge and use it before it goes bad.

  3. Debra S says

    I don’t have much of a strategy for my produce freshness right now, other than we try to use it up as fast as we can. And it’s awful right now, I am on a much lowered budget now. I used to shop once a week, now I try to go only ONCE a MONTH. It is practically impossible to keep some things for a month…

  4. Jennifer Pittman says

    I don’t really do anything, mostly I buy a small batchs, or if I bought a lot of say – strawberries, then make sure the whole family eats them for snacks and at meals till the are gone.

  5. Debra Guillen says

    I try to buy small quantities so they don’t go bad on me and I like to wrap my celery in aluminum foil because it seems to last longer

  6. vivian says

    I don’t really have a good technique. We just try to buy the produce we know will be used in the immediate future. This would be great!

  7. Julie Harris says

    My mom always told me to put a paper towel in a bag of salad to keep it fresh, I have never heard of this product and I would love to put this to the test, we eat about 7 bags of salad a week but it would be so much easier and cheaper if I could buy the bigger bags and not have to worry about them going bad before we could eat it

  8. Debra Holloway says

    I use an open box of Arm&Hammer baking soda in the fridge and wrap everything or put it in air tight containers that I can.

  9. says

    I don’t do anything to prolong the freshness of my produce right now – I really should, though, I just had to throw away some that had gone bad earlier today. :(
