Peckish Box Review – {The Sweet Tooth Box} Week of March 17th, 2014

Update:  I am just furious with this company. What a terrible experience. After I received this box, I cancelled my order because I just didn’t feel like the value was there. Instead of cancelling my order, they took it upon themselves to change my subscription to bi-monthly, charging and sending me MORE boxes, and after sending multiple emails for 2 months, I was only able to get a response and have the order cancelled after leaving a bad review on their facebook page. I still have not been able to get them to credit me back for the erroneous charges they made to my card. Whatever you do, DO NOT use this company. They send the TINIEST portions of freeze dried fruits that all basically taste like styrafoam anyway, and they have a very small selection of items they include in the boxes so you get the same tiny samples of snacks repeated  month after month. I ended up getting two other boxes as a result of them refusing to stop charging my card and sending me boxes, but I refuse to do any more reviews for this company because they are THAT BAD.

Tried out my first Peckish box recently and have to say I was extremely dissapointed ! If you’re not familiar with Peckish, they send you a few small snacks for $5.99/box. Shipments are available for the boxes on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. 

peckish-march2014-1All the boxes contain “minimally processed” ingredients supposedly. They also contain no trans fats, no partially hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.  They are basically just tiny little plastic boxes with not even a handful of crappy tasting freeze dried crap.

I got the Sweet Tooth Box and here’s what it contained:

  • PB & J
  • Sweet Americana
  • Strawberry Banana Sundae
  • Blueberry Walnut Granola

PB & J

Raisins, peanuts, and freeze dried raspberries which are supposed to mimic the taste of the clasic peanut butter and jelly – but instead just taste like raisins and peanuts which is pretty much what you’re getting with every peckish mix. That or peanuts and chocolate chips. More or less. 

Ingredients: Raspberries, grapes, peanuts, peanut oil, unbleached wheat flour, water, canola oil, all natural evaporated cane juice, salt, yeast, baking soda

Sweet Americana

Again we have freeze tried blueberries and raspberries mixed in with banana chips… all of which had a bitter taste and came with the corner of packaging open so that little bits spilled everywhere. Which I guess was a favor to me, since it tasted like crap anyway. Small favors and stuff.

Ingredients: Blueberries, raspberries, bananas

Strawberry Banana Sundae

This had styrafoam strawberries, bananas, and chocolate chips. Same bland tasting, strangely textured 

Ingredients: Dried Strawberries, Dried Bananas, Organic Sugar, Organic Chocolate Liqueur, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Vanilla

Blueberry Walnut Granola

Dehydrated blueberries mixed with the walnuts and granola. This one didn’t contain a card with nutrition information, nor is it listed on the website right now, but there is a granola mix with Cranberry available that looks similar you can check out. 

I think the value of the box for $5.99 shipped was just not enough for me to want to continue subscribing. Combine that with the fact that this company will charge your card however much they want to, whenever they want to, and there will be no way for you to cancel it without cancelling your credit card and getting a new one (or getting very lucky) it’s just NOT WORTH trying. If you’re interested in trying out a food box, there are SO MANY more reputable companies that send out an actual variety of good tasting snacks, instead of just putting a bad taste in your mouth.

  1. I subscribed to Peckish when they first started their subscription box. Back then you got four big bags of mixes. maybe 1 lb each? it’s sad to see they’re now little cups. Granted, it used to be $15 a month, but worth it for the quantity/quality of the product. And I never had any issues with over charging or cancelling. Such a shame they’ve gone downhill.
