proper good right?
I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
I wouldn't want to spend it myself but they seem to make her happy. And she's not a complete dickhead, I don't think
Time to make your mind up whether you're on the side of the wankers or whether you're going to join us in their destruction, you moderate fucking PLUM.
I'll defend tasty-but-paltry vegan snacks until I die!
FETCH THE NOOSE.
fair enough if you made it up yourself it would work out cheaper but I would never actually bother.
it's only a couple of quid a week anyway.
Until I do I'll be convinced that they were invented by people from the North as a way to laugh at Londoners. Like the ferrets in trousers thing, only a painful lie.
This is why I google-imaged them. They look even worse than I thought.
on a train from Penrith to London & was travelling FIRST CLASS because it was £10 cheaper than standard and they had these little "snack boxes" that they gave out with the free tea & coffee, each of which contained a biscuit (singular), a mini toblerone, some pretzels, some mixed raisins (plain and yoghurt-coated), a couple of crackers, and some not-so-spreadable cheese. I only had two of them because the lazy bastards only pushed the trolley past twice in 300 miles, but anyway. Wonder how much they would've charged a pop for one of those.
but at weird prices. it's also a weird concept.
50 pence worth of nuts and seeds, 50+% of your daily calorific intake, £4 a pop.
Better off going to Burger King.
for £3.50 I will send you this in the post and a packet of crisps
and that it was a nice little surprise when i opened the box and found things i didn't like, effectively pushing up the price of the things i do
few starburst in there, or an egg, sometimes send it 2 weeks late....keeps it interesting
of something so expensive and sunday supplement readerish
I'm billing you for that monocle.
But then if you're the kind of person who gets mugged for a fiver for some magic lentils maybe we shouldn't expect you to have any stamina. Or protein.
NOM NOM NOM
At least wonton has the courage of his convictions, you backpedalling bloody moomin.
i am not proud
white chocolate, biscuit and coconut
Does it come by the kilo?
they were like crack
i thought that was just the packet, not the wotsit itself
end up ripping the box apart kind of thing.
They will offer you some half price ones, then cancel again.
Decent, but not worth the money IMO.
Contrary to what others have said, you will not find the same range/variety of stuff for much cheaper in a normal super market though, you will need to go to Holland and Barrett or similar and get two for ones.
this post and -dan-'s reply sum up everything that needs to ever be said on the subject
Except maybe this one.
was that quite a lot of the stuff they do is nice, so a) i wanna buy large quantities of it and therefore b) i don't wanna pay shitloads for it.
They were only about £3 and kept giving offers and freebies which helped a lot. Initially I really liked them, you can cut out a load of the dull stuff on the website forcing them to give you better choices which helped, but it all got a bit boring really. Loads of the fruity ones are mainly raisins, the olives are nice but you get about 6 in a box, the crackers or biscuity ones are just bland as fuck. It took me a while to stop getting them, they keep plying you with free ones, but I really wouldn't bother again.
modern existance then it is this. I am sure that many people who have them might not be awful at all, but it makes me want to typecase them as being so.
It does give rise to the possibility of a classic middle class crisis "Oh no, Ive been given the wrong graze box"
it's just a box of nuts and seeds
unless it's just a clever way of overcharging for nuts that are already too expensive
(that is if you need for someone else to divide them y
Find somewhere nice and unspoilt, Alter your mind, and get grazing all the plants that you know are ok to eat, try not to use your hands.
PS actually lapping up liquid is also great fun (as opposed to tipping and gulping)
in what season and includes some recipes for each of them and stuff. i like the idea of that. it's her birthday on thursday. hopefully she won't read this
who by? that sounds expensive.
I have a handmade book that I write things about plants in......its my special book, some of it is in ciphers and allagorical myth.
Perhaps I should make more books and sell them?
She's put a load of vouchers for free ones up in the 'kitchen' (fridge, kettle and sink area).
Might order a free one and stick it out for the birds or something.
Thought you could just get them on an ad hoc basis
that's a good one
they brighten up my thursdays immeasureably. last weeks one was an absolute stormer; popcorn, carrot cake and a tea bag, cheesey bruschetta thing with mini baguettes, and the bonnie wee oat cakes with red onion chutney.
every day just for the sake of convenience. Also they do good pineapple and other fruits. Nice bits of chocolate, all kinds of nuts that you dont really want to buy a big bag of but just want to try. Certainly worse ways to spend money on food.
For disorganised people who can afford the overpriced pricetag,m there's pretty good actually. I did them for a month and I found that it helped me eat leass crisps and chcolate during the day. Howeverm even though they rotate the contents of the boxes, I was well bored after 3 weeks and cancelled after my fourth.
I'm back on the crisps and FUDGE PRETZELS AND i'M BETTER OFF AND HAPPIER.
I get one box a week delivered to work and generally (allowing for days off or working at home) I use one of the "snacks" or whatever they're called a day as breakfast. Works for me, and means I actually eat something before lunch which I wouldn't otherwise do.
what you want is good bread with proper fillings for proper sandwiches.
