Get good food delivered to your door [UK]

Graze Box of fruit and nibblesWorking all day in an office? Sitting in front of a computer for hours on end? What do you eat to keep those energy levels up? If you’re anything like me there will be a good number of sugary snacks in the mix somewhere which, whilst good for quick bursts of energy, aren’t exactly the healthiest option.

A few years ago I discovered Graze, a company that will package up small boxes of fruit, nuts, berries, and other goodies, and deliver them to you in the post! How cool, tasty snack treats arriving in the mail. You can have them delivered to your house or to your office for snacking throughout the day. I stopped getting them for a while, but I notice they have just unveiled a range of dips and dippers that tempted me to resurrect my account.

Each Graze box is nutritionally balanced (note: it won’t replace meals!) and designed not to give you that sugar rush followed by a crash. If you get something in the box you don’t like, just pop onto the Graze website and rate the items so that they will have more of an idea what to send you next time.

I’ve signed up for the grazeeatwell box, which costs just £3.49, but you can pick from a variety of boxes containing things like a range of small nibbles, or foods with a low GI rating. The box is recyclable too, so as well as eating well you’ll be able to reduce your environmental impact by popping it in the recycle bin.

If you’re in the UK, and you want a tasty snack delivered to your door, give Graze a go. You can try Graze out for free, and receive your second box at a discount, by using this code when signing up: MN3J7VP. Enjoy!

Full disclosure: using the discount code will, as well as getting you a free box followed by a discounted one, earn me £1 off my next box. Obviously I’d be really pleased if you chose to use it :)

Friday Fun: Feed the King

Not “The King”… although a game involving feeding burgers to Elvis would be quite amusing. No, in this game you have to stack cakes up to make as tall a tower as possible. If you’ve played Tower Bloxx this part will be very familiar to you… the cake moves back and forth and you want to land it on the top of the pile. Try not to add rotten cakes though – they taste bad. Just drop them to the side of the pile.

So far so good, but to be honest I thought this was a poor Tower Bloxx clone. Once you’ve piled the cakes up, though, one of the King’s servants pulls a lever and ejects him from his throne. As you shoot up into the air you have to move left and right to eat the cakes you’ve just piled up. So it’s in your best interests to try and get them as straight as possible!

And that’s all there is to it. Simple, fun, and likely to amuse you for a while as you prepare for the weekend. My high score is 27,522 – why not tell us yours in the comments?

You’ll need Flash and, as seems to be the case more often than not, you can put the sound off without making the game unplayable.
