Snackeez is a combination container-and-cup they say will let you enjoy both a snack and a drink in one hand without mess or spills. The upper area of the cup can hold chips, fruit, popcorn, or any other item you might want to much on, and the bottom holds the liquid beverage. Snackeez seems to be targeted at moms with messy kids and husbands.
Snackeez comes from Idea Village, a marketing company based in Ft. Wayne, NJ. They are not accredited by the BBB and currently have a D rating, due to failure to respond to a dozen complaints.
How Snackeez Work
Snackeez consists of a colorful clear plastic cup with two compartments. The lower two-thirds is for your favorite cold liquid beverage (up to 16 oz.) The upper third is a removable compartment with its own lid and is designed to hold snacks; a hole for the straw pokes through the top.
To use the Snackeez, remove the upper compartment and fill the lower portion of the cup with your drink. Fill the upper compartment with any kind of dry food snack and slip into place; put the straw through the hole. You now have your snack and drink in one container.
To drink, sip on the straw - to eat the snack, flip plastic cover open and munch away. They note the cover seals completely, keeping snacks fresh and preventing spills - the straw even has its own attached plastic cap. They claim Snackeez are safe for the dishwasher and great for the car, home, or for parties.
Each Snackeez Order Comes with:
- 2 Snackeez (Blue/Green & Pink/Blue or Green/Orange & Orange/Purple)
- Extra set of 2 Snackeez “free” (extra S & H)
Snackeez Pricing, Shipping & Returns
The Snackeez system sells for $9.99 plus $5.99 S & H for a total of $15.98. But when you order, they include an additional set of Snackeez for an automatically-added $5.99, making the real total $21.97 for 4 units. They promise to ship your Snackeez within 30 days; once you receive them you have 30 days to return them for your money back, minus the initial S & H and the money it cost you to ship them back. This means, if you don’t like this product, you will lose more than half your money in returns. For this reason, we suggest if you do like the idea of Snackeez you wait until they are available from a more reputable retailer before you purchase.
Does not close back up after putting in dishwasher
After washing in the dishwasher the lid does not screw back on so now I am left with a brand-new twice used item which is completely unusable. Will not buy another.
No straw cap, but still very good.
I bought this product just today, for myself and my two sisters. It is somewhat overpriced, although we have only experienced two minor letdowns. First of all, unlike as advertised, the products do not have straw caps. I do not know if this is because we bought them at Target. Lastly, the rubber ring that surrounds the straw fell off and was lost on my sister's Snackeez drink/snack cup. But other than that, this product could not be improved. Keep up the good work!
Great, durable product good for anyone (not just kids!)
This product is amazing; I absolutely love it. It really helps to have my daughter's drink and snack together. I've listed a few of the positive points below:
Pros: 1. Snack and drink both fit in the drink cup. 2. Easy to use for a child of any cup-holding age. 3. Great for many occasions, including play dates, t-ball games, camping/fishing, and trips to the park. 4. The cap on the top of the straw keeps it clean while being transported. 5. Liquid stays separate from the snack, even when tipped. 6. Durable material, easy to write on and label. 7. Snack lid snaps shut and stays put in most cases
Cons: 1. If the cup tips over completely, liquid will leak ou.t 2. Although the lid snaps shut, it did pop open on us once when the cup tipped over.
All in all, I recommend this product to anyone. It's a really convenient product for kids and adults. It's one of those "why didn't someone think of this sooner" products.
Really glad we have one and considering purchasing more. Will certainly be gifting these to other parents and family in the future.
Their customer service wouldn't replace faulty item
my kids got these for their birthday and loved them. then i put them in the dishwasher (says right on them that they are dishwasher safe) and when i went to unload them they were all warped. the items were only 2 days old so i called customer service to get replacements and they refused. i even tried to escalate to a manager and was told they didn't have one there to speak to at that time. i am so frustrated they aren't standing behind their product!
Mine came with no straw cap. It does not prevent leakage at all! This product needs improvements, I also didn't like the cheap plastic it is made of. Waste of money.
Product seems to work as advertised, however there was no cap for the straw. When using a carbonated drink (i.e. sprite, coke, etc) the drink comes just for no reason comes back up the straw and spills beverage. Have to use non-carbonated drinks to not get leaks out of straw. Other than that the product works. Would recommend it with the use of non-carbonated drinks.
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY buying this!!! The top doesn't seal & spills will occur easily if it's turned over!!
My daughter bought one for my 4-yr. old grandson less than 1 month ago. He accidentally knocked it off my desktop yesterday. Even though the outside cup didn't break, the inside cup cracked, & liquid went all over the floor!! I called customer service today to ask for a replacement cup and they will do NOTHING about it!
They simply said I would need to return it to the store where we bought it. When I let them know we bought it in TN & we live in TX, it made absolutely no difference! I would never buy another one of these ever!!! Not only wouldn't I recommend it to a friend; I wouldn't even recommend it to an enemy!
Good, Its an okay invention
Everything works, my cup spills at a certain angle. The only problem is that its hard for me to open the drinking holding part.
Awesome, but... Mine didn't have a straw cap. It's annoying to see others with their caps and not mine. Why? Other than that it's great, pretty heavy duty. I've dropped it quite a few times and no scratches. *knocks on wood*
3rd use and rubber "stopper" dislodged
We bought these for our grandchildren...worked great...only spill came from the little bit in the straw as long as the straw is pushed all the way to the bottom of the cup. HOWEVER...the rubber stoppers for the straw that are imbedded in the top (snack cup) came out...spent an hour trying to get it back in..it keeps the straw from being loose.
We removed the straws as per the directions and washed them by hand. But without the rubber stopper, these things will leak everywhere.
As for the weight as some reported...our 2 1/2 yr old and 6 year old grandchildren had absolutely no problem with the weight when filled with juice and snacks... I will replace them and wash the while thing in soapy water without removing the straws and use them for the car. The ones that leak, they can be used outside.
Disappointed with the rubber stopper/seal .. But all in all, a nice handy on the go cup for them. --Bought them from bed, bath, and beyond...9.99 each.
If you order from the website, it clearly states that you purchase one for $9.99 + $5.99 S&H, then you will be given a second cup free (a $9.99 savings) all you pay is $5.99 S&H. For ALL As Seen On TV products the cost of shipping is up there (agreed it is a bit unreasonable) but all these products are new, they still have to work the kinks out, i.e. the product manufacturing, shipping issues and website management. Also NOTHING is SPILL PROOF, this product aids in preventing spills and makes snacking more accessible for the "on-the-go" type of family. In addition, the cup is PLASTIC! if you put it in the dishwasher and you use heat dry, IT WILL MELT, common sense should have told you that. With most As Seen On TV online purchases, if they make you fill out your info before you hit the PROCESS ORDER button, that means are accepting the order you have placed and it will be PROCESSED!! There is also a note under the process order button that states "By clicking the Order Now button you are placing a live order and agreeing to the terms of our 30 day money back guarantee and our arbitration agreement" (I typed this as I was looking at the website itself). If you are really that pissed off about the price you pay for ordering online and you don't receive it in a week or less, BUY IT IN A STORE! That's why they are convenient. Don't be lazy, get off your bum and go to the store and buy it (that's why there are millions of Walmarts everywhere!) Also, I understand making your kids happy but don't spoil them, if they whine about not getting one tell them to suck it up and grab a water bottle and bag of baby carrots, its the same thing and those items are cheaper than buying a cup just to put them in. You are an enabler if you get your child something just to shut them up so you don't have to deal with them. That's bad parenting.
Finally, the Snackeez items are great, they do need tweaking to get the kinks out, possibly thicker plastic or better rubber seals, but I have several and have not had any problems. Use your brain people, don't just buy it because its on TV. Nothing and nobody is perfect.
