Q: What ages are recommended for this box?Asked by Karen A., January 2022

eat2explore answered...January 2022

Hello!
We recommend this box for ages 5 and older :-)
14 years old is a great age for this subscription box. A 14 year old should be able to do this without, or with very little help, from an adult!

I guess I'm wondering if it would be appropriate for a 14 year old?

Q: I ordered this as a Christmas present with the initial shipment to be in Dec., but ya'll have already sent out the 1st box. Why?Asked by Hollie L., November 2021

eat2explore answered...November 2021

Hi Hollie,
Thank you for reaching out. We are so sorry but we just checked your account and there was nothing indicating that the order should start in December. Do you mind letting us know where you indicated this? If there is a glitch in the system we want to address it right away. Either way, we are very sorry that this shipped earlier than you had hoped that it would.
Happy cooking & exploring
team eat2explore

I also chose December 22nd where it was indicated we could. It arrived yesterday. I'm not upset. Just wanted to share there is a glitch if it is happening to others.
Thank you.

When I placed the order I put Dec as the first delivery date and specified that it was a Christmas gift. I got no reply to my other question.

Q: Hello I want to give 3 more months as a gift will I automatically get 3 different countries or do I need to let you know before I purchase? Asked by Crystal C., July 2021

eat2explore answered...July 2021

Hi Crystal,
Thanks for reaching out. That is so exciting.
I checked your account and it doesn't look like you are set up to auto renew.
Would you like me to set you up for it?
Also, since your 3 months just ended and you'll be renewing to another 3 months you will be getting all new countries :-)
Thank you!

Q: Your Eat2Explore Explorer box would be perfect for my niece. Unfortunately, my nephew has an anaphylactic allergy to tree nuts, peanuts, and sesame seeds. Any plan to address the major allergens?Asked by Erin Q., December 2020

eat2explore answered...May 2021

We are so very sorry for our extremely delayed response.
Even though most of our spice/sauce mixes have no nuts, they are packed in a facility that is not nut-free certified. If your niece has serious allergies, maybe you can try our boxes without spice/sauce mixes but have the mixes recipes to prepare them in the safety of their home. The best way to purchase our no-spice boxes is on our website. Thank you again for inquiring!

I only signed up for 3 months for a Xmas present. You need to cancel my subscription’s and I am not going to pay for any shipment after February. Quit sending anything else. Also please this is the second time I requested this.

eat2explore said...Apr 13, 2022

Hello Glenda,
Cratejoy makes renewing your subscriptions very easy. There is a button on all accounts and subscriptions that give you the option to turn the autorenewal on or off at anytime. We are sorry that you missed it. We have gone ahead and cancelled your auto renewal for you. Thank you for exploring with us.

Not what I expected for the price. A few seasoning packets and some recipes that, frankly, I could have found online. This wasn't a good box for a teen - He's not going to make 3 meals a month using just a few packets, and then I have to buy a bunch of expensive ingredients to make the meal.
I'm canceling this subscription and getting something where you get nearly everything you need to make a dish.

eat2explore said...Apr 13, 2022

Hello Emily,
Thank you for sharing your experience. Our mission is to provide a cooking kit that is more than just a cooking kit by introducing families to specific countries, their culture and their cuisines. Each box includes cultural and geography based educational materials, 3 chef-curated recipes, 4-7 hard to find spices/sauces/grains, a passport, a sticker, a flag pin and a cooking tool. We are proud of our cooking kits so are very sorry to hear this wasn't a good fit for you.

Very Excited

This has been great for teaching young kids to cook and exploring different countries. They take much of the longer/harder tasks out making this great for weeknight meal.

I am so incredibly impressed with this subscription box. We asked for family to buy these subscriptions for my 8 year old son for Christmas. He loves it and we love it! We've discovered healthy new delicious worldly meals to add to our rotation. We received middle east 4 boxes and India. There is no way we are stopping these boxes! Although geared towards kids, it's a great gift for adults. This is a must have family activity. Great job eat2explore!

I have received two shipments, Ethiopia and South Korea. The recipes are very clear and understandable. They do a great job of alerting one to the timing required of each recipe, especially if there is an overnight marinade required. All of the dishes from both countries have been delicious. My family has enjoyed sharing our international experience with a neighbor and my parents. What a great way to experience different cultures when we are stuck at home!

Perfect for the tween learning to cook and also very educational and an awesome way to teach kids about other cuisines in the world. Haven't tried the recipes yet but they look amazing. Simple and easy instructions and seasoning, sauce or oil from around the world. Truly unique!

Thank you Shannon! We love that you mentioned tweens because as much as we appeal to younger children, our subscription is also great for older children and adults!
