    Work is bad enough without people going out of their way to feed me rabbit food

    It's got chocolate in a lot of it. It's all really tasty. The hickory smoked nuts are lush

    They are good, had them last week. I like the chilli cashews as well. Have been getting it for a few weeks now, stops me snacking on crap office sandwiches instead, and if you keep threatening to leave it stays cheap.

    What I like is the variety, you can choose how often you see each item from a huge list, so it doesn't get boring.

    My weekly box turns up tomorrow and there are usually free trial vouchers inside if anyone wants them. Its easy to cancel online, you have your own little account, takes seconds. You can cancel individual boxes if you aren't in the office that day too.

    Sounds intruiging. I've signed up for a free one to try, and set myself a calendar reminder to cancel the regular deliveries, as I probably won't want one every week.

    If anyone wants a free box and the second half price, use my code: RKYYFYB and I promise to donate the quid I get to the Ugandan farming school

    She's lying, I can just see her spending your pound on salted koalas nuts or something - I promise to share my snacks with some starving orphans that live in the bin behind my office, can't say fairer than that. Those Ugandans are probably just farming rhinos for horn, you know what they are like!

    I get it Mondays and Thursdays. I also have my graze boxes delivered those days (fnar fnar). I have cut back on biscuits and find often the boxes last me over 2 days.

    The olives are to die for. Well if you like olives. The flap jacks are yum too!

    I am grazing as we speak.

    Nice nibbles, but can't see this replacing my lunch.

    Can't you just pick up some seeds/raisins or whatever next time you're in a supermarket and then take that into work?
    Or is that too simple?

    It's less simple, that's kinda the point.

    Then I'm missing the point.
    You go shopping every week. Adding "pack of raisins" to your list isn't all that much effort. Bring them to work and putting them in your desk drawer for when you feel packish isn't either.

    Granted it's a fraction more effort than having it delivered to your desk but then it probably only costs a fraction.

    It's the variety that makes it work though (today I got black peppercorn rice crackers, 2 sorts of raisins + dark chocolate apricots, dried mango + pineapple + banana, and almonds + dried cherries + vanilla coated pumpkin & sunflower seeds. That's a really low calorie day at about 500, but I've still got a box left and some fruit and I'll be fine 'til I get home.

    I don't know what I'll get each day but I know it will be something I like because I've chosen all the possibilities on the site. I'd have to make a large investment at the start to approach the variety I get, plus some of it might go off. The convenience is the key though - my breakfast and lunch just lands on my desk every morning, and since it's direct debit I don't even have to think about it. This works really well for me, and it keeps me off the sandwiches / biscuits / crisps which would probably amount to the same total or more.

    Here endeth the sales pitch.

    Not so sure the cost would be less, certainly not to get the variety you do with this. You canít really buy single serving amounts of those kinds of foods, and you certainly canít get the kind of variety.

    Itís a pretty unique offering really. The only way you could emulate it yourself would be to buy all the ingredients separately Ė olives, bread, nuts, chocolate, raisins, crackers, flapjacks etc etc etc Ė then make yourself up individual unique mixes every day and bring them to work. I strongly doubt that would work out cheaper and it would certainly be a lot more effort.

    The piccie on their website showed 4 little boxes with dried fruit and nuts. I didn't browse it much further than that. Sounds OK.

    Also I know it sounds sad, but it just adds a little magic to a mundane work day. It was a really nice treat getting the box this morning and opening it up to see what I had inside.

    :) I like that too. It's a nice surprise every day.

    This is what I got yesterday - the sour mango tangfastic box is really tasty.

    Heh. Your link is borked but I can imagine it probably says "Graze Jane's box". Sorry about that.

    I think that's it in a (organic) nutshell - I wasn't in this morning, told the girls there would be P45s flying around if my box was empty!

    Local, do they send a good mix? Eg do you get stuff that repeats frequently without being asked?

    The service is fantastic, and the website is very nicely designed and functional.

    I won't be continuing past my free sample box, but mostly through personal taste rather than any fault with the product.
