Best Before Dates VS Expiry Dates
Please note, often you'll find products on Dated that are close to or past their Best Before Date. Best Before Dates are simply a guideline by the manufacturer and not an actual use by or expiry date. We taste test and get assurance on all our products so you can feel confident knowing you’re buying products that taste great!

How Do I Know The Stock Will Still Taste Good?
All the product sold on Dated has been taste tested, and the stock is only made available once we ensure there is no issue with product taste or quality.

What If The Stock Isn't As Described?
We 100% stand behind each and every Dated box that gets sold! If for whatever reason you're not happy with the quality of snacks you receive, we'll send out fresh stock or offer you a refund on your purchase.
