Our Snackeez Review
Although the product has a new feel to it, it isn’t the first attempt to combine snacks and drinks into a one-handed product. Some brands of sippy cups for small children, for example, have done this for several years. Nutella also has a one-handed “Snack & Drink” offering in some countries which contains different compartments for Nutella, bread sticks, and tea.
Fans of Nickelodeon’s “Drake and Josh” may also remember a similar product from the episode entitled “Helen’s Surgery” in which “Cup O Stuff” was invented as a solution to carrying popcorn and drinks in a movie theater. That device worked remarkably like Snackeez, with soda on the bottom and popcorn on the top. That episode aired back in 2005, long before Snackeez existed.
We asked several testers to evaluate Snackeez in early 2014 and give us their opinions. We had adults and children try the product. Below are some observations by our testers regarding Snackeez drink cups:
- The snack compartment is quite small, only taking up approximately the top one-third of the cup.
- It is not entirely spill-proof, as some liquid can seep through the hole where the straw is inserted. It is, however, an acceptable feature as the amount which can seep out is minimal.
- Temperature transfer can occur between the two sections, meaning a warm snack and cold drink will not stay the appropriate temperatures for long.
- Although the commercial includes adults as potential customers, it isn’t likely you’ll find an adult who would use what is essentially a child’s drink cup.
- The best fit for this product are children between the ages of toddler and teen.
- This website shows a rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars, with over 115 user ratings.
- On Amazon, Snackeez boasts a 4-star rating as of December 2014 with over 140 customer reviews.
We forwarded a question from a commenter below about Snackeez to the company, and received the following response:
Thank you for your message, Snackeez is made in China and is BPA free. Thank you and have a great day!
A common complaint we have heard from our readers and others is that the shipping process is very slow, and back orders are commonly cited as the reason. Those customers placed on back order are told they must wait an additional 6 weeks to receive the product. Customer service is also unresponsive. Now that it is available in stores, this should no longer be a concern for most people.
As you can see in the Google Trends chart below, Snackeez appears to have had its peak marketing push in April 2014. Since appearing in stores, it would appear that online interest in the product has waned, although a December 2014 surge indicates a renewed marketing campaign for the product.
In August 2014, a follow-up product called Snackeez Can Toppers was test marketed. That product does not appear to have made it out of the testing phase.
Snackeez is not for everyone, but it may have a place in the hands of children between ~4 and 11. Because of shipping delays and costs, you may want to wait until this, or a knockoff, appears in stores.
