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.
My son wanted one of these for a while. So when we saw one at Dollar General, he used his own money to buy it.
It worked good for three days after until the gasket around the straw fell out somewhere. I called the company to see if they would just mail me another gasket but the guy told me unfortunately they didn't have any gaskets and that I could take my Snackeez back to the store I purchased it and see if they had one.
The lid keeps coming off and my son think it's funny. Please fix the cup lid. That's all!
I wouldn't buy these again
Reading the reviews, I purchased ours from Kmart $10/cup. We have 4 children. We gave them to them for Christmas stocking stuffers and 2 of them are already cracked at the bottom.
I would expect them to be much more durable because they are designed for children. Also, the cup itself is "spill proof" however, liquid will come out of the straw.
I love this product for my kids. It keeps them quiet in the car because they have a snack and a beverage. The only down side is you cannot keep carbonated beverages in it. Other than that I'm in love with this product!
The common theme on here is that these people ordered the cups through the snakeez website. I don't blame them because this seems like the best way to order. My advice is to order from a third party that offers their own guarantee. I ordered one for my son from Amazon and am very happy with my transaction process. #1 it's cheaper. #2 I received it in less than two weeks. #3 Most third party retailers take responsibility for all of its sellers so if you receive a defective item they will take care of it.
*note* you get what you pay for so don't pay $10 for a 2 in1 kids cup that is sold on an "as seen on tv" style commercial and get mad that it's not durable.
This product is good from what I have seen. I just bought it last night, from Walmart. I put milk in the bottom and trail mix in the top. I just had it on my night stand, so it didn't ever tip over so I do not know if mine will spill. I liked all the colors they had, but I ended up getting blue and green. Mine didn't come with a straw cap, so I was disappointed about that, because I wanted to take it to school then put it in my locker, but without a straw cap I kinda don't want to now. But over all I think it is a good product, but maybe in the future it will be more improved. There is like 100000 *note sarcasm* reviews that say this is a very bad product! Hopefully this helps!
It didn't come with the straw cap and It barely fits any snacks in it and the juice if you put to much then when you put the cover over on it spills everywhere and all over the snacks. Come on.
I like it. It may spill, but it makes your kids happy!
This product has a fundamental design flaw. There is no second air hole besides the one that the straw goes through. This means that if you try to suck liquid through the straw, no air can get back in to replace the liquid, so you can only get a little bit of liquid at a time.
I bought this at Walgreen's thinking how GREAT it would be for riding my trike around town. I had a pack of sodas, and poured one in expecting it to FIT since the packaging specified 16 oz. I could barely fit 12! Plus as another reviewer said, carbonated drinks come back up the straw...It also leaks into the bowl. Fortunately, I had not put any snack into the bowl yet. Great idea, TERRIBLE execution.
This is a good product but mine didn't come with a straw cap. So when I put a soda in the cup the soda came back up the straw and made a mess! Be careful what you drink.
