Good Dinner Ideas!

        Comments about FOODIE DICE:

        Bought it for my husband for an anniversary gift, because he hates trying to figure out what to have for dinner. This really helps! The only con is some of the food options are things we either don't eat or didn't really know what they were. We might just write over those ones with things we like better.

        Comments about FOODIE DICE:

        I bought these dice for my wife as a birthday gift. She wanted something to change up the same old same old meals we have been able to cook well. They will let us try new things, and they are also great for pre-planning your meals when you are out of ideas or just want to try something different because you may not have everything you need if you roll the dice on the fly!

                  Got this as a parting gift for a former co-worker who likes to experiment in the kitchen.

                  It is a bit pricey for what it is, but it made a nice gift presentation, and he seemed to like it.

                    I don't know what I was expecting but was underwhelmed. Which is totally my fault for not thinking it through. It will be for a white elephant gift but I feel like I need to throw a little something extra in. Maybe one of the food items. Which will send me more above the $ limit. But they are fine.

                          I gave this to my fiance as one of his Christmas gifts, and he really liked it. I'm very proud of giving it to him. Even though at the time the price felt a little steep for my budget and the size of the product, I feel it was worth it. It was one of my favorite gifts for this holiday to give him. The dice are the size of standard dice, so yes, relative to everything else they are small, but that would be because they are dice. The printing was well done, solid and quite legible. My fiance started rolling them right away, and said that he could definitely work with the kind of results he was getting - the food would be good. He's an excellent cook, and he's always interested in trying new things. He also often plays with a randomizing dinner application online, so I had an idea that he would like the concept, and he did! It's a great gift - and frankly, I don't even know how to cook much and I would have liked to receive these myself!

                                This was a cute little product. My mom thought it was a nice present, and she plans to use them in the future for dinner.

                                The dice are high-quality and look really nice (I collect dice, so I tend to notice these things). The print was easy to read, if a little small. They're definitely at their most effective with ample prep time (i.e. enough time to take stock of the pantry or go to the store). My only small qualm is that they don't have too many dice options. I would prefer, maybe, an expansion set, that allows you to add in specialty items (i.e. vegan, gluten-free). Other than that, great stuff.
