    Mmmm, glad I saved the cherries, dark chocolate, raisins and almonds box to last.

    Local, do they send a good mix? Eg do you get stuff that repeats frequently without being asked?
    I've been doing it for over a year, and I respond to their rating query emails when they send something new so I've probably rated everything they do by now. When they announce new stuff (like the dips) I asked them to send it soon and make a decision (dips are a bit messy but a nice change now and again).
    I have my preferences set to "send me more of the things I like or love" so that's pretty much what I get - if I get bored of something I drop it down to "try" status for a bit, only bin the things I really don't want. It definitely doesn't repeat in my 4-day week, usually takes more than a fortnight to start repeating any one box.
    Having said that, I wish they would send me some more hickory smoked nuts, I might have to mark them send soon. Nom indeed. edit: ah damn, they are not available for send soon at the moment :(

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I've binned mine off for two months as in cutting back. Never was on time though, usually a few days late and sometimes not at all.

    I'm only on my second box but am loving these so far. They seem to send a good mix and it does make me feel like I'm being a tad healthier, staving off the office biscuit cravings.

    If anyone wants a free box (plus second half price), use this code - money will go to charideeee: CPRBBR5

    Cheers for the code I just signed up. I - obviously - like food and the novelty o getting a wee box delivered every couple of days looks enough to justify the small cost. And tbh, I love trying new food and this works out cheaper than buying a £3/4 bag of something ive never had before from markies which I end up not liking.

    Just got my first free box, but I'm planning on cancelling after the 1/2 price second one- £3.49 for 4 punnets o' stuff is a little off-putting.

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Mmmm... 's nummy.

    Just had the tomato dipinetti. Hope the rest of the stuff I have is as nice. \o/
  • Deleted user 22 September 2011 15:26:41
    Pretty good one today. The vanilla pumpkin and sunflower seeds are insanely morish.

    Whether I get flapjacks or not makes a huge difference to whether I can call a box lunch.

    I agree. We buy organic, natural nuts and seeds anyway for snacking. Not into dried fruit much as it is full of sugar, and I wouldn't eat the chocolate or yoghurt ones either. It seems a rather expensive way of snacking tbh.

    Some of us have more money than time in fairness. Plus, I'd never pick up stuff like this when I was out shopping.

    (and even if I did, only two of the four items I got today would have been available)

    Looking at the option I'd have to choose, it would be quite limited. I don't really eat anything with gluten in if I can help it and I tend to avoid most forms of sugar too.

    You buy them? Why not grow them? You can also save a fortune by making all your own clothes and crafting your own furniture.

    Iím being facetious btw.

    As it happens, I do have a walnut tree in the garden and it's time to harvest them. I could dry some of my Damsons and send you a daily snack box of them both plus fresh Apples and Pears, from my other trees, to you for a mere £3.00 a day.

    Oh, and a french man made our furniture for us. :p

    Getting things in the post is always nice - even if it is rabbit food! Biscuits ftw!
  • Deleted user 24 September 2011 22:53:03
    Not a good start when my first box doesn't arrive! :(

    It is a very slick operation, the marketing and packaging are an example of how to do it right for any company. This probably accounts for 80% of the cost of each box, but it is impressive!

    Who thought "Ancient Forest Nuts" was a good product name? :p
  • Deleted user 26 September 2011 16:23:47
    I had that one today! Boring tbh...

    Took my box into a meeting and everyone assumed they were free for all. Greedy cunts.
  • Deleted user 27 September 2011 12:50:18
    I dot think or got the hang of this graze thing, finished my whole box for today by 9:30 :/
