Just used 5CRAF, code still working, thanks OP 😁




Both worked! Thank you for sharing!


Quick update:I have just received my first box and I am overall happy with it. I just would just not buy again a special box as the value of the goods received are actually cheaper to buy on their website directly. I received a box which was actually around £2 pounds less worth than to buy it directly. Not a big amount, but why should I buy a "surprise" box again as you normally would expect to receive even more than just the value of the box as it is choosen by the company.


Neither code worked for me... ;(

Wish i hadnt bothered now. They didnt send 5 items yet the bill stayed the same price. Instead of giving me credit for the missing items they deducted the value from my order thus bringing it down to below the amount for free shipping. Thanks for a terrible shopping experience and most of the food was awful too.Never again.


Use code LDFR-FB18 for free delivery also..... Don't know if you can combine discounts but might as well give it a try Your Welcome :)


Just a FYI, lots of the Free Delivery codes are for new customers (unless anyone knows better!), but this one, Free55 works..£55+ spend, though! This is a good buy - Clinique Liquid Facial Soap Extra Mild 200ml at £9.99 (5 left)* Cheapest I can see it elsewhere is £15.40 at Amazon *Edit: (not sure why the link won't work, but you can search for it manually - 3 left now)

I ordered some of these earlier in year and paid £1 per box so £6 for the box of 6. Still getting through them now. They taste absolutely fine.


Can't understand why they would limit it to 3 x6 per order,you would think they would want to get shot. Amazon has latte and cappuccino 6 packs for less than a tenner if you are on maximum sub and save and collect voucher,all well in date! That said,I had these when they were a fiver a few weeks back,and they tasted fine,but they are a few more weeks out of date now.


Out of date by nearly a year.....


I think they need to cut their losses and bin these, especially as they are nearly a year out of date. Unless this is a typo error......


Cold for out of date stock....

Worth a punt. Thanks OP.


Good deal OP. I'd just ignore those who probably never have even tried something past best before, and describe Nespresso/Starbucks’ choices for their variety pack as ’random’.


3 months out of date and random flavours I feel that it should be around 1 to 2 pence per capsule


Its like due to covid they have unsold stock from starbucks stores


So pay £30 to get flavours that they could not sell and 3 months out of date?

You're right of course, the coffee is 'going off' all the time so yes there will be a difference in taste from pods that have just been produced to those which are a lot older whether or not they are 'in date'.


:) Yeah but if they can sell it discounted then it makes sense for them to do that, cutting losses (or maybe their whole business model is based on selling cheap out of date stuff, I dunno, but there are businesses that do just that.)


Yes, sure is


I agree with your comments regarding taste but when it's 3 months old they should be giving it away.


Re BBE: The coffee could be a year old up to the best before date so another 3 months after isn't going to make much difference, it's not like it tastes amazing on 27th Feb then awful on the 28th. Not for me so not voted.

Because op can't ...


So why has the deal not been expired? The OP knows there’s none left. FWIW, I have just eaten a Snickers with a bb date of 2012 and it tasted just fine


Anyone ever had old chocolate that tasted of soap? Yucky


Bad chocolate is rank, but if you want to spend £2 for guaranteed disappointment... buy a scratch card.


Then it shouldnt be on hotukdeals.. Failure.

The Approved Food University Survival Box is our solution for any new student that is living in their own accomodation.

This is in the banner that results from using SEARCH to look for "Approved" Approved Food Deals & Offers 32 hot deals All that comes up when you click on the suggested link is this entry, and it is EXPIRED. Perhaps a programmer could be be assigned to investigate what is going wrong, and fix it.


The toilet roll won't last a day after you've eaten all that crap 🤣


Although, somewhat ironic, as we didn't pay a penny in tuition fees and got some sort of grant unless our parents earned well over the national average. Plus we could still claim housing benefit and unemployment benefit in the holidays too. Beer was relatively cheaper and there were fewer graduates competing for jobs. We had it cushy!


Indeed. Plus the occasional squirt of that garlic purée which came in tubes - like it's tomato sauce counterpart. Unfortunately, times have changed. Today's "millennials" enjoy their daily graze at Pizza Express or Nandos, with a Pret sandwich for lunch and several trips to the on-campus Starbucks or Costa. Kinda like the old "yuppies", just without jobs. Today's students wouldn't be able to survive under the harse conditions we did! ;)


So, you get 1Kg of dried pasta, and nothing to have with it? Not even some plum tomatoes? In my day, the classic student meal was a chilli made from mixing tins of plum tomatoes, Kidney beans and sweet corn - server with rice and cheese on the top if you were trying to impress someone.

Top and bottom are foil


I'm more concerned about nasty plastic capsules damaging the machine than recycling.Once had some CafePod where I had to force the handle closed to pierce the plastic capsule. Ended up binning them rather than break the machine.


You can recycle them :|


Voted hot Hukd virtue signalling recycling = annoying


Happy to but coffee going out of ‘best before’ - but I ain’t paying anything for food that’s WELL out of best before!! Think they found a pallet of this stuff at the back of a closed Debenhams store??!…COLD

Yes, but these are 120 pods, ie. you get 2 packs of 4 of them.


I think the standard variety packs are only 80 pods:


Not voting either way but note that they sold these for 4 (ie. 480 pods) for £40.- and 3 (360) for £30.- not long ago so they might again. Also, of those i received only 1 box had a Feb expiry, another March and another May (plus, there is no problem using these well beyond the best before date).


People will say "expired" but these are hermetically sealed capsules, so the ground coffee will be fine. It's also only a Best Before date, it's not like the coffee suddenly degraded and went stale at midnight on 1st March. That said I'm not sure it's a fantastic price, often on Amazon for around the same.orice with a S&S discount and recent YankeeBundles deals were better value.


Thanks OP, ill give it a go

Got these when they were £5/box, still got at least 4 unopened boxes of 6!


Yeh I make mine into Americanos with 1 pod


Does anyone ever use these to make an Americano? Or would you need to use two pods?


Since I have been working from home I have 2-3 coffees a day. These are espresso so you could double up even.
