Review by Alisa Jordan Writes 

This month Alisa dug into our September WanderSnacks and she loved the throw backs like Fruit Winders and the classic tastes of home. Alisa is a talented writer and travel blogger who moved to Frankfurt am Main in Germany from the UK a few years ago. You can read her thoughts on WanderSnacks and catch up with all her other adventures ​here.​​​

What you loved

  • Hobnobs
  • Galaxy baking kits
  • French Fancies
  • Cadbury's Chocolate

Improvements for next month

  • Careful Review of Best Before dates - Although items past their best before date are still safe to eat, we want all our product to arrive fresh in their best condition possible. We will pay careful attention to every item in every box to ensure only the very best products are included. 
  • Packing material - we are aware that many of our customers would prefer less packaging material but we tend to run into transportation damages when we reduce the volume of packaging material - next month we're trying something new and a little different. Watch this space!

Our September WanderSnacks were a hit with our Wanderers. The general mix and variety of products worked well. At a satisfaction rating of 4.6 September was one of our most loved boxes. 

We love it when we get suggestions for next month's box and by far the most frequently requested item is CRUMPETS! We hear you guys and we're working on it.

​Wanderers Said

"I miss custard so much"

"Just love it"

"Digestives please and more Cadbury's chocolate"

"Chocolate had melted"

What you loved

  • Bird's custard
  • Homemade Shortbread
  • Wine gums
  • Kettle Chips
  • Cadbury's Chocolate
  • Biscuits

Improvements for next month

  • Review transportation issues - we had 2 report of chocolate melting and heavy handling by DHL. We will delay shipping to avoid high eperatures, review packing material and monitor DHL.
  • More Cadbury's chocolate -we reduced the amount of chocolate last month to avoid melting but our Wanderers definitely noticed. We hear you and we're all stocked up for September.

Our August box provided the best value for money yet versus leading expat suppliers and performed fairly well given the heatwave across Europe. Wanderers loved the homemade shortbread and Bird's custard but want more chocolate.

Our satisfaction rating dropped a point this month which was partly due to transportation issues which we are reviewing and partly due to a much lower number of survey responses . We're looking forward to next month (spoiler alert!) for more chocolate, fruit winders and Robinson's squash.  If you have any requests please let us know on the contact us page or chat to us on social media.

A Decent Cup of Tea Review

This month we are delighted to be included in the German blog about English foods called "A Decent Cup of Tea" . If you are blessed in being able to speak German or are learning, this blog is great fun to read. You can see a full review of our WanderSnacks July box on the following link: Read our Review

What you loved

  • Good Service

Improvements for next month

  • Less sweets
  • A few more savoury items

Ideas for the Future

  • A 'hate box' where subscribers can declare items they really really don't like. - In the mean time, feel free to email us 2 or 3 of your hated items and we'll do our best to keep these out of your box. 
  • Packaging changes - balancing environmental concerns against presentation and protective packaging for transport will take some time. We hope to move towards WB branded boxes and offering lower packaging alternatives.

  • Customising box content.
  • Including drinks
