Q. I bought a product at a show, that you do not sell on the website, i would like to buy more? 

A. Kantan Living have 100s of products, so not every one gets a spot light on our site. Also certain products may become exclusive at show appearances or they are so new that we just haven't updated it on our website yet. 

But if you see something you liked at our show appearances, just drop us a message/email we're more than happy to help with your purchase.

Q. Do you have a monthly subscription for your yummy box? 

A. No we don't. We feel that the customer should be able to buy as many yummy boxes as and when they feel, whether its for casual eating, or as a gift to someone, without having to wait every month.

Q. Why are your yummy boxes not random each month? 

A. We believe that while it is nice to receive a surprise each month, its better to offer our customers an experience they will enjoy. We don't want you to end up with a snack box only to find out 1 out of the many items was nice. We surveyed our customers at exhibitions, and a good majority like our selection rather then pure randomness.
