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.
Firstly, it took months, literally, for this product to arrive. I purchased it for my grand baby at the beginning of summer and by the time it arrived she had already went back to Alaska for school. I was still excited to get it so I opened it and immediately try to use it. Key word there was tried. I like to have my drinks in bed so I got some soda and some chips and fill the cup and sat down next to a pillow, confident that nothing would spill. I went to sleep and when I wokeI was covered in orange soda! I knew this could not be correct I must have done something wrong. So a couple of days later I tried again. This time in the car. Again juice all over the back seat. And this time I know I put the top on correctly. If that wasn't the worst of it the plastic is so cheap. My son put it just a little too close to a hot pot and the the cup melted in seconds! So I threw out the cup but I have to say that's a little bow on the to the bowl YHe bowl is wonderful! It keeps my tuna fresh and cover. I wish I had just gotten the little bowl on top because I do love that. Another thing, after I paid $30 for 2 cups I found them on Amazon 5 for $15! Do yourself a favor skip this product!
Do not buy from this company.
I tried ordering these on the company's web site. It was buy one, get one free. I ordered the desired 4 and it took the order and processed it and then told me shipping was $45, I called the company immediately and the guy said "you ordered 4 so you'll get 8 and you got charged for shipping of 8". I told him to cancel the order and he said wouldn't. They are a company in the Caribbean so it's going to be tough.
I bought this at Walgreens last night. I like the color selection, although it could have been better. The snack bowl lid is a bit hard to open and close. Maybe thats good so it wont spill. After the second use, the snap cap lid popped off. I snapped it back in.
Won't replace cracked plastic
Be mindful that the plastic will crack if your kids drop it and they will not replace.
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!
