Zatarain's Big Game Cravebox

Recommended Posts

I bought the box to make a dinner when I visit my parents in March.

Pleased with what was sent, I like the True Lemon iced tea and the reg price of that is around $6 per box-so the value seems fair even if it has a bit less.

 

Was really hoping for a snack though. or something sweet.

I also feel that people hoping to use this box to throw their super bowl party may be a little disappointed. I got this box because I love zatarans so this box is just what I was hoping for.

I am really glad I decided against getting Craveboxes.You guys LOVED these things last year and they looked really cool, but now they seem more like just a compilation of things you can get at an ordinary grocery. I guess lot of these sub models really need the bog corporate sponsors and the more boutique-y stuff just isn't sustainable.

A year ago I would have told you that CraveBox was my favorite sub, hands down. But that was during the Beta period when they sent a variety of items in each box. Now, they have changed their business model and send theme boxes. After I received the BBQ box this summer (after I had opted out of it but they decided to send it to everyone anyway) and the Tasty box (worth less than what I paid) I dumped CraveBox and I've been happy with that decision. The recent boxes are not interesting to me but I'm glad the majority of people seem to enjoy them. Also, the lottery style of "winning" a box (which I'm still paying for) just seems a little juvenile to me. 

 

I don't think the name CraveBox accurately reflects the recent boxes of rather ho hum items.

I agree. The boxes used to be varied...there were beauty items, office items (remember the pink and purple sharpies?! Swooooon.)... fitness items and now, it just seems like "Boring Grocery Store Box". I haven't seen one I'd be happy with even for $10 in months.

Yeah, I liked what I got in the Resolutions Cravebox (my first one), but it wasn't incredibly impressive.  I'm going to try to get the craft box that's coming up, but it was easy to resist the temptation to get the Zatarain's and School Snacks

I also never received an email with a tracking number but when I went to my account there was a tracking number on there. Yours is probably on your account as well

Kind of what I expected, well did not expect True Lemon iced tea <I do like and buy it...it is good>.

 

I did expect some kind of snack thing and some recipies though and maybe a coupon for some free item at the store as they always seem to have those....

 

And I recall some question about nuts in the survey, so thought there would be a tin of nuts or coupon or something??

Still pleased, I hope my meal turns out good. Guess I'll have to print some recipies to bring with me to make my meal.....

yeah understand when they said it was a zatarins box but also supposed to be a game day box all that in it can be used for dinners nothing really for game day figured more snack would be init

"Stupid Kindle Fire" is what I'm going to rename mine. Always changing the words in my messages, asinine. It sucks for that.

On topic-this box sucks too! No matter that I like and will use the Zatarain boxes. No idea what I will use the creole mustard and seasoning for, since none of the recipes provided sound good to me.  I hope I like the iced tea. I was getting used to the freebie coupons for perishables and they didn't even do that. Stupid Cravebox.

Haven't received my box yet (although my shipping info is on my account page, I also didn't get an email), but after looking at spoilers I'm SO disappointed!

 

Game day = snacks! I thought mixed nuts, chips, paper plates, coupons for wings, crackers, napkins, soda, stuff like that. Things people usually use at superbowl parties. I expected one or two Zatarain's products of course, but not practically the whole box. What a bummer. Oh, well. You win some, you lose some.

Why is it when I click on a Warning Spoiler I get taken to the top of the page? I hate when that happens!

This is EXACTLY how I felt when I saw the spoilers. I was excited for snacks, or quick appetizers to make, you know, SOMETHING. I expected something along the lines of  the "Cooking Light" cravebox where there were a couple branded items but also some other stuff. Good thing this is my last box from them. :) I guess I can use the beads though, to support my Lakers who are doing horribly this season. Phil Jackson, come back!!! haha

YES^^^ Exactly what I thought when I opened it! This is not Big Game food, in my opinion with the exception of the wing recipe maybe.

I don't know why they didn't think of that! I still don't think that it was a good idea to use almost entirely a single brand/type of product, but if they had to this box would have fit Mardi Gras WAY better.

 

Maybe they didn't go that route because they thought it would have less appeal, but this box as a superbowl box is quite the stretch. This box seems only vaguely related to anything superbowl (simply because of the New Orleans tie) to me. Anyway, sounds like maybe you should start working for Cravebox! ;)

haha that would be awesome! I mean, New Orleans, beads, I haven't even gotten the box yet and its screaming Mardi Gras to me, I completely expected snacks or coupons for them, recipes/ingredients to make the stuff for super bowl. I'm so glad my "opt in" to two boxes turned into an "upgrade" to double for the same price, because had I paid double for this box, I would have been disappointed.

I also don't like the shipping this time around. I get no info...the tracking number on my account tracks through USPS but I get no estimated delivery date, no weight, no nothing. Ohwell, again, this will be my last box unless something spectacular comes along.

My 'Mardi Gras' box was supposed to have been here Sat.and didn't make it today either. Looking forward to a spicy meal and wearing my beads Friday to the Bayou Bash at Disneyland. I hate football anyway. :P

    • HAHA:) It is quite funny and even true sometimes;)))
    • I went to a function in August and I was used mascara. Since then the eyelashes of my eyes have become very thin. I did not benefit from the remedies. Right now my eyes look so bad because of eyelashes. Please suggest me a remedy for growing eyelashes.
    • I started using e.l.f. eyelid primer lock and didn't have any problems.  Just recently when I reordered the product, the container was a different color though the product color is the same.  I read the information from each one and one is made in China (new one) and my old one is made in USA.   I started using the China made one and my eyes are starting to become irritated. I'm not sure if it's the eye lock primer or a new body lotion I just started using (Nivea). I'm eliminating the Nivea to see if perhaps it's the China made eye lock e.l.f product.   Has anyone else had any similar issues with China vs USA made?
    • Yes, poker is quite interesting for me. But I don't play for money..
    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now.
