10343 Ordering boxes through the post
What's the best pretentious internet food box company? I just received the 'first one free' from SimplyCook.com, which consists of four kits of three spice/sauce pots each, and recipe cards to use them with. Considering it's a tenner a box, that's a bit of a rip-off. I know there are some other companies that send you a hamper full of actual ingredients for a comparable price. Do any of you use, or have used, services like these?

I got a month or so free on Graze somehow, a couple of years back. Tasteless and tiny portions. There's no way I'd pay for that nonsense.

Yeah plenty of people get them at work - not convinced myself either. They're the ex-Lovefilm team, I imagine they'll end up being as successful. I'm sure that plenty of the money they make is people starting the trial and forgetting to cancel.

OP here, I think they're great ideas. If you remember the 90s when the Internet was taking off, and ordering groceries over it seemed futuristic and magical - I get the same feeling about this. But in practice, in both instances, they're just so fucking overpriced.

Ugh. This is a horrible practice and anyone employing it is a cunt - even moreso if it's their main business model. It's like a mate you once offered to put up because they missed the last train home insisting on crashing at your place every time they're in town.

This is the one that sends you the actual ingredients, HelloFresh.

Apparently a 5 meal box for 2 people will set you back £49, or '4.90 a meal'.

That's... still expensive compared to just buying shit yourself. I bet even getting home deliveries from Tesco would cost less.

Ugh. I used to imagine I was some kind of cinephile and actually signed up to Lovefilm as a fucking student. It cost me an insane amount of money and they kept sending me scratchy DVDs. I'll never forgive myself for it. I suppose I'm at least a wiser man now but fuck me, was that embarassing.

I did the same, back in 2004 or so (it was actually Video Island, who I think later merged with Lovefilm or something like that). I had a DVD burner at the time and split the rental costs with two others, so it worked out quite well, though my tastes have also changed over the years.

I quite like my Graze boxes.

I suppose they're a luxury I could do without though. I think I'll go cancel my subscription.

I have the joy of living with someone who gets boxes from graze twice a week. Eating seeds isn't something I would pay £10 a pop for the pleasure of doing, that's for sure. The dried fruit they do is quite shit too, you're better off buying dried apricot from a weighhouse style shop or the baking section of any supermarkt.

Exactly, this posho bint that lives with me gets these aid boxes every now and then. I got a really negative impression of them as I associate her vegetarian, snob personality with the overpriced snacks. For 10 quid I can buy 2 weeks worth of this shite from Lidl.

Fuck that noise; I get cases of various flavours of these foil-packed space-curries delivered to my work every few months. They're damn good and you can nuke them in 2 minutes. I get to have curry for dinner whenever I want for less than £1/dinner. And they're even pretty good for you. Sweet.
