nice little treat once in a while, expensive to have often

I was introduced to Graze by a work colleague in January last year who gave me a code. It entitled me to first free box then fifth free box, great I thought so I gave it a go and signed up. Sign up was quick and easy and the lay out of the pages is simple to understand. Graze has different types of foods you can have, it includes dried fruits, dippers, breads, nuts, olives and is constantly updating its menu with new things such as little puddings and high tea. I spent around about an hour signing up and "binning" things I didn't like and rating things I would like to try first. You change tweak the settings go it sends items you have listed as "send soon" a great tool for items you really like or really wish to try. My first box came ok, I got an email the night before giving me a sneak peek at the items I would be getting, all very exciting and all tasted ok, I think in the 20 or so boxes Ive have I never had anything I didn't like, but this was down to my settings.
Now for the bad points. first off it can be expensive, at £3.89 per box its quite a lot of money for a bit of dried fruit and nuts, I like the idea of it but when I first started a box was £3.29 so they have increased the price quite abit. I had my first 5 boxes and then changed deliveries so I only got one every month or less because I found that Id spend the money on this box but still get lunch so it was working out to be an expensive day. The delivery of these boxes was usually next day however sometimes this was delayed and delivered the next day, I understand its sent Royal Mail and so this cannot be helped but its still irritating. All the "nice" items are rarely delivered, I have only ever had the bread once and I know several people who get these boxes and they have only had it once or not at all, its a shame but unless you tweak your settings you do end up with nothing exciting. As a dieter the calories was also high, sometimes half my daily limit, hardly "healthy" is you eat all 4 punnets!
All in all its a good idea, for an occasional treat yeah go for it, a free code is always online or in shops. I wouldn't get it every week though.
Summary: nice idea but is expensive for what it is
