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.
Snackees 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.
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.
In your commercials you say it does not spill however, we had a cranberry juice tragedy. When the cup was at a tilt the cranberry juice spilt all over the carpet so therefore, the cup does spill. On the commercial it also says that the snack does not spill but that to is a lie. When you drop the cup the snack spills. So therefore, for your cup is just a normal cup that spills and it is a waste of money.
Improving this product is a must. You shouldn't have put your product on TV without fixing all of the problems. I believe that people are experiencing this problem all over the United States.
I am very disappointed in your product.
No straw cap but still awsome
I really like my snackeez . Really useful . I enjoy being able to open my snackeez with just my thumb. Pure Awesome-ness!"
Worst thing I have ever purchased
I was so excited about the Snackeez cup and so were my grandchildren. So I ordered 2 sets of BOGO in February , it was over 3 months before I received them. When I opened them, 2 had broken straws. They ARE NOT spill proof, when used after 3 weeks with only occasional use, they were put in trash. And as far as bottom line..... I would NOT recommend this product to my worst enemy. Chalked it up to biggest rip off ever and the biggest waste of $50. EVER? And as far as the rating required, I would have used negative 5 stars but it wasn't an option.
Junk, do not buy! Not Worth the money or hassle!
I ordered BOGO. Had them both a month and lid hinge on both broke. So now the lid doesn't shut. Mine did come with cap on straw but with broken lids it really just defeats purpose. I could have sworn seeing the ad stating it comes with warranty.
Daughters received them as a gift. Both bottoms are chipped up and now the lid on one is broken. Absolutely terrible! I only had them for about 3 weeks but because they were a gift that was shipped earlier they are not covered anymore. Absolute garbage
