After testing out the Squeebie Mixing Bowl with her class and Tiffany Craig, KHOU Channel 11 consumer reporter, Nicole Stalkfleet, Life Skills teacher at Ashbel Smith Elementary, was ready to purchase one. The bowl was featured on Shark Tank, and since Stalkfleet’s students cook every Friday and deliver their treats to the faculty and staff, this was as good a place as any to decide if the bowl was “Worth It?” as Craig’s segment is called.
Craig ordered the Squeebie Mixing Bowl by Lori Greiner from QVC for $20, bringing it with her to Stalkfleet’s class to use for mixing Hot Cocoa Dip. The students measured and mixed the ingredients, and their teacher demonstrated the “squeegee” attached to the bowl, which helps scrape out the ingredients. The bowl also transforms into a colander.
“I tried that later after rinsing raspberries, and it works, too,” Craig said.
The second- through fifth-grade television stars weren’t shy in front of the camera, and they had their own opinions about the Hot Cocoa Dip, the process and the bowl.
“Ninety calories!” volunteered one student.
Another emphatically shook his head, not certain that the bowl was any better than a regular mixing bowl, but Stalkfleet was sold.
“Look how not super-messy the bowl is. I think I really want one of these now,” said Stalkfleet.
Once the dip was placed in small cups and animal crackers were added, the students set out to deliver the snack to the faculty. Every Fun Food Friday, the students talk about what they made and how they made it as they pass out the treats, helping them with social and communication skills. Stalkfleet started this with her class a year ago after purchasing a bundle of simple recipes by Stephanie Delussey on “Teachers Pay Teachers.” Now, the kids get off the bus on Fridays excited about cooking day, but they were even more excited to be television stars!
