https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/107315975/the-great-celebration-box-review-was-it-worth-the-money

 

Has anyone actually tried this or tried using this service? I haven't and don't know anyone who has, but would be curious to hear experiences from people who have ordered one (was it delivered on time, was the order correct, etc). I can guess why she charges so much for products that are actually worth a lot less - people are paying for the convenience of having it in one box and saving them the running around going to different shops, etc - but is it actually worth the money? I also note they are under investigation by the Commerce Commission.

Never heard of this service. But one thing led to another and now I've bought a box of junk food I don't need from Mighty Ape...

Sorry, I could've explained that better; I picked a handful of items which will probably turn up in a courier box. It's not a premade collection like Celebration Box.

Smart business woman.





Went to the zoo yesterday.  Very disappointed!!.  They only had one animal, a small dog.  It was a Shih Tzu.

I've changed the link to the company site as that product was just a Black Friday special and not available at the moment.

Maybe, but it also looks like poor execution of her idea.

Most of the photos of these celebration boxes I've seen have donuts in them.

 

Uncovered, unwrapped, exposed to the air, donuts. In a container with a random assortment of wrapped and unwrapped lollies/chocolate. 

 

Factor in prep and shipping time and there is no way these donuts are arriving and being eaten in a state that's anything other than stale. Just wtf.

I pity anyone in the South Island that tries to order one of their boxes with donuts in them. Sure the chocolate is probably okay but by the time it got down towards Dunedin (or wherever) the donut probably wouldn't be so great...

Those boxes pretty awful and it seems like they're not making much money from it. One of the owners was called out for benefiting from her mum's pyramid scheme.. Sounds like money laundering to me.
