DISCOUNT CODES IN POST- READ ON!
Snack boxes. Monthly boxes in general. 2014 was definitely the year in which monthly ‘treat’ boxes emerged as a force to be reckoned with. In the modern age where bank statements and mobile phone bills are scarcely even posted out we seem to be seeing a revival of posted goods. Do we long to fill the void left by love letters of old?
Companies like Brichbox, Grazebox, the box, my little box, pink box, everyone- and -your -granny’s -got- a box began promoting their goods on social media all promising the same- high value goods at a surprisingly low monthly subscription rate. But are they worth the hype?
Today I will be reviewing and comparing two of the ‘snack’ style boxes and assessing whether they really deliver quality goods straight through your door…
By far the most renowned posted snack company. Subscription of £4 will get you 4 snacks in a well presented and personalised box.
Summer berry flapjacks,
Pretzels and sticks.
At £1 per treat these boxes are budget friendly and Graze regularly run ‘free box’ promotions. As you can see, they are very colourfully presented with a guide containing the nutritional values of the snacks. All snacks are tasty and the online selector ensures that you do not get any unwanted items in your box. The personalisation is a nice touch, albeit done on a laser printer.
As my fiancé has been having these delivered for several months now, I have been disappointed with the lack of variety Graze have provided. As can be seen from the photograph, 3/4 of the box comprises of pretzel/stick type snacks. There is a notable lack of any chocolate goods. All in all i failed to get excited about the contents of this particular box. Others have been far superior!
3/5- consistency Graze… Keep me excited!!!
A company that is still in it’s infancy but making waves on social media. What sets this box apart from Graze, is that they offer gluten and dairy free goods where Graze do not yet accommodate such dietary requirements. As a recently diagnosed ‘gluten intolerant’ – but not coeliac- person, I was keen to purchase a box in order to expand my snacking horizons…
Eat chic peanut butter and sea salt cup,
Urban fruit mango,
Cocoa Libre milk chocolate
Mr Filbert’s sea salt & herb mixed nuts,
Sea Salt Kent crisps,
Honey Rose triple chocolate cookie,
Honey rose line & coconut macaroon.
Woah! Right away the quantity of goods on offer is vast and far superior to Graze. They come boxed and tissue papered with a hand written card- a very personal touch! At £7.45 (had a 50p off coupon) this box is more costly than graze but in my opinion worth the extra money. Products were all sources from reputable brands and were… Exciting!!! P.s the peanut butter cup was the thing of dreams!!!
I guess some people would argue that £7.95 makes Snackly one of the more costly options, yet I would disagree with that as you most definitely get a wider range and variety of products. I guess it all depends on whether you could afford the extra monthly cost. I am going to stick with my subscription to Snackly as I feel they provide an excellent service! I can only hope that they will continue to deliver products that excite!
5/5- personalised and excellent niche service. Keep up the product variety!!!
Next month I am going to compare beauty boxes, so stay tuned!
